We’re beaming to share that we recently worked with our friends My Hotel Wedding to highlight 2018 Floral Trends for Hotel Weddings. When it comes to the types of flowers, you’ll see this year, get ready for dahlias and ranunculus galore! While both of these blooms are uniquely their own, one thing is for sure, the diverse color options both of these statement blooms bring are just one of the reasons they are popular for engaged couples. You can include one (or both!) of these blooms and double-up on a hotel wedding trend by choosing a moody color, such as a darker fuschia paired with a powdery pink.
