Settle in for a bit. We've got a lot to show you.
Florals are perhaps the cornerstone of a feature-worthy wedding, and in 2020, we featured what seemed like an endless array of Arkansas weddings complete with breathtaking flowers. Here are a handful of our favorites from our features in print and online in 2020. Which is your fave?
Daymaker Designs brought a charming citrus flair to the wedding of Molly Wood and Seth Moore. We can't get over the pops of color and use of real fruits in the décor. It makes us feel so cheery — and has us ready for spring!
First, we love a good monochromatic moment, and this Cabbage Rose Florist wedding of all-white florals had us right there. But now that orchids are all the rage again, we also took notice of the abundance and beauty of the orchids throughout CaLynnna's wedding décor, especially the florals used to create her stunning ceremony setup.
Unexpected colors—rust, amber, copper and red!
We're head over heels for Amy and Andrew's cool color combo, not to mention the execution of this unique choice by Silks-A-Bloom. And can we talk about the use of florals above the dance floor? And around the custom signage? Smitten for sure!
Southern garden on steroids.
Tanarah Luxe Floral and TLF Event outdid themselves with these floral elements at Hillary and Stewart's wedding. We're talking about the escort card display (Wowza!), the overflowing florals on the tables, and the jaw-dropping florals overhanging the dance floor.
A bold theme (our fave of 2020, BTW!) calls for bold florals, and we just loved Kelly Efird Flower Events' work on Ben and Sydney's Hot Springs wedding. Throughout their big day – from the glamorous aisle styling to the video game details in the table arrangements – these flowers were on theme and on point.
Give us all the pampas.
Sorry, not sorry. We're still obsessed with pampas grass. There are still so many ways to use this gorgeous natural resource to make your weddings wonderful. We loved Paige and Taylor's neutral florals by Magnolia Belle Floral, especially the bridesmaids' pampas-only bouquets and large floor arrangements staged at the ends of some tables.
Unorthodox but truly amazing. Grace and Mo's alternative floral choices had us oohing and aahing. Texture reigned supreme with a unique mix of flowers, greenery and fruit. The moodiness of their Meus Floral flowers will never leave us. It's just too good.
A seductive floral ombré.
Candlelight, sequins, red roses, hot pink roses, light pink roses, beige and white roses—the impact of the Fondren's ombre floral centerpiece is by far a top 2020 moment. The rest of their florals are just as good. Pigmint never fails to bring the magic and their work for our best-dressed bride Lizzy and her planners at Amanda Reed Weddings are no exception.
The ultimate pop of color!
We could write something cute and pithy here, but let's be honest. The pictures do all the talking. These wedding flowers by Silks-A-Bloom are unreal. See for yourself why Savanna and Andrew's big day, planned by Anne-Claire Allen Planning & Design, takes the top spot in our list of best florals for 2020.
