2022 Wedding Trends Include Bridgerton Decor And Sustainable Flowers

Wedding season is fast approaching, and 2022 is set to be a big year for saying “I do.” Considering all the weddings that were pushed back from 2020 and 2021, you know this year is going to be jam-packed with celebrations. If you want your wedding day to stand out among the crowd, you can make sure your celebration is picture-perfect by staying on top of the biggest wedding trends for 2022.

Sustainability can also be a theme with your flowers. WeddingWire is seeing an increase in dried flowers as wedding decor for 2022. You could even get some Forever Roses from Roseshire that will last one to two years, or rent silk blooms from Something Borrowed Blooms. The best part? You can put the money you save towards your honeymoon fund.



Where Have All the Flowers Gone?

Amid it all, florists are finding creative ways to provide clients with their dream wedding flowers. The keys are flexibility and creativity.

Lauren Bercier started her silk-flower rental company, Something Borrowed Blooms, in Lafayette, La., six years ago. In 2021, she provided flowers for thousands of weddings, she said, up from 12 a month when she opened her business. On average, silk flowers cost about 70 percent less than fresh flowers, she said.



Frugal florals: Rent artificial flowers for your wedding and save money

Instead of your grandmother’s earrings, consider making the wedding flowers your “something borrowed.”

Nationwide, the average cost for wedding florals hovers around $3,500, but with rented artificial flowers, that price drops to just $500, said Lauren Bercier, 36, co-founder and owner of SomethingBorrowedBlooms.com, a rent-and-return premium silk flower rental service based in Lafayette, LA.



Silk Flower Arrangements: Everything to Know

Friday, January 28, 2022

Wedding flowers infuse color, texture, and personality into so many aspects of your big day. From choosing your bridal bouquet to table arrangements, the choices can be seemingly endless. But one option you may not be considering yet? Silk flowers.

Silk flowers are a stunning choice for the couple looking for a more sustainable option. While they are artificial versions of natural flowers, silk flowers look entirely real. "You can find just about any flower variety in the silk or artificial form," says Lauren Bercier and Laken Swan, founders of Something Borrowed Blooms. "The key to choosing the best silk flowers is ensuring the silk version closely mimics what would be found in nature." Another bonus? You’ll have the option to keep your bouquet or a table centerpiece from your wedding as a memento for years to come.
