Blossoming Beauty: Exploring the Latest Trends in Floral Design for Texas Weddings

Texas weddings are known for their charm, hospitality, and natural beauty. When it comes to creating a magical atmosphere on the big day, floral design plays a pivotal role. From rustic barn weddings to elegant garden soirées, Texas boasts a rich tapestry of floral trends that reflect the region’s unique character and romance. In this article, we’ll delve into the latest trends in floral design for Texas weddings, helping couples infuse their celebrations with the timeless allure of the South.

1. Lush Greenery Abounds: In the South, lush greenery is more than just a trend; it’s a timeless staple. This goes the same for those getting wed in Texas. Vines, ferns, eucalyptus, and ivy continue to grace Texas weddings with their natural elegance. These verdant accents serve as the perfect backdrop to vibrant blooms, creating a sense of freshness and romance that defines the southern charm.


2. Embracing Local and Seasonal Blooms: A growing trend in Texas weddings is the use of locally sourced and seasonal flowers. This practice not only supports local growers but also ensures that your floral arrangements are at their freshest and most vibrant. Southern weddings have always had a connection to the land, and this trend embraces that tradition wholeheartedly.

In the spring, consider using foxglove which is at it’s peak from March to June in Texas. Peonies are mostly ready in May and June but do have a later fall season. You can pair some peonies with your choice of ranunculus.
