We couldn’t look back at all the beauty we saw this past year without stopping to recognize the incredible floral trends we saw brought to life by some of North Texas’s most talented florists! From installation trends to design themes, a few certain floral trends made their way into DFW weddings and styled shoots throughout 2019, inspiring us and in many cases, making our jaws absolutely drop! These florists are the real deal! You’ll notice many of the trends we share overlap, showing just how popular these tones and designs really were, but each created in their own unique way! We can’t wait to see the florals 2020 brings. Cheers!

Peachy Keen

Cheerful, warm and bright, we noticed peach as a common thread in tons of color schemes in 2019, which meant tons of gorgeous peachy florals! This color is playful, lighthearted and versatile for just about any season. Talk about a winner!

Looking UP

North Texas weddings featured a plethora of elevated or suspended installations in 2019, hanging high above tables both short and long, bringing the drama and adding dimension. Simple, dramatic, whimsical, boho – the styles varied but the height and drama stunned no matter what!

Desert Southwest

2019 was quite the year for boho, southwestern-loving brides, especially when it came to florals! Pampas grass, dried palm leaves and terracotta all wove their way into various scenes, adding juxtaposition to modern scenes and livening up boho vignettes. We’re in love!

Each year, we love looking back and remembering the trends that stood out to us, especially when it comes to wedding gowns! 2019 saw a few jaw-dropping bridal fashion trends, and our North Texas bridal boutiques delivered, carrying incredible dresses and making these trends accessible for all kinds of DFW brides. From boho and whimsical details to all-over lace, 2019 was one for the books in bridal fashion! Take a look back and tell us on Instagram which looks were your favorite!

Sweeping Sleeves

Whimsical, unexpected and oh-so-flirty, we couldn’t love the sweeping sleeve trend more. What a fun way to add movement and dimension to your look, too! Simple, chic updos complemented these looks so well, letting the sleeves make the statement.

High Necks

Higher necklines were all the rage this season, and an instant pick for our style-minded gals. Not only is this style a good fit for a more modest bride, but you can’t deny how flattering the shoulder-baring cut is!

All-Over Lace

Sometimes, more really is more – especially when it comes to gorgeous lace! We loved all the looks we saw with all-over lace: high necks, long sleeves, all the way down the train. This look took center stage in 2019!

Deep V + Applique Lace

The ultimate look for 2019’s boho brides, this eye-catching style made its way into lots of wedding scenes this year. With bold lace appliqués on ethereal tulle or mesh beneath, the contrast of this lace style is something to behold, especially when paired with a deep V-neck cut to show a little skin. We couldn’t love it more!

At the end of each year, we love to look back and see which trends made an impact on the North Texas wedding scene. In this particular recap, we’re revisiting the biggest cake and catering trends we saw over the past year! DFW’s culinary creatives knocked it out of the park, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to see what they create in 2020. Scroll through and let your mouth start watering, and see more fantastic ideas from these pro caterers and bakers on our vendors page!

Brush Strokes Cakes

We saw several cakes this year with abstract brush stroke adornments giving the layers a three-dimensional effect evoking movement and whimsy. We love how this effect can take a simple tiered cake from plain to wow-worthy – it’s also a great way to incorporate your wedding’s signature colors!

Grazing Stations

A different take on hors d’oeuvres, charcuterie boards and grazing stations made appearances in a plethora of DFW wedding scenes this year! We love the casual element a grazing board brings, while still presenting the food in an interesting and oh-so-pretty way!

Rustic Floral Backdrops

One gorgeous detail we noticed again and again this year? Putting cakes in the spotlight against rustic three-dimensional floral installation backdrops. What better way to flank the cake than with a whimsical floral install that draws attention to the sweetest part of the day in the best way.
