2022, a Huge Year for Weddings

Each winner in the different categories represents floral designers who have been part of the most precious moments of a bride and groom. The photos captured of these memories are made worthwhile browsing through because all the elements in it come together perfectly. Then we’re speaking of the beauties of bridal bouquets, wearable flowers, flower-covered reception tables, and ceremony décor.

According to Florists' Review, 2022 is expected to be a huge year for weddings, with an estimated 2.5 million weddings projected to take place in the United States. So designers, get ready for a busy season!

“A noteworthy wedding décor trend we noticed is the vertical 'pole' flower decorations that frame a ceremony space.” – thus Nita Robertson (AIFD, CFD) of Florists' Review.
