You’ve heard of the phrase “less is more” and in this case, less really IS more! We’re talking fewer flowers and bigger impact. It’s all things Mono-Floral today! This is a trend that both minimalists and maximalists can get behind! Recently, we’ve seen more and more weddings gracing our pages showing off single flower variety designs and arrangements. That’s right! Florists are creating stunning, show-stopping bouquets, hanging installations and centerpieces using just ONE type of flower! The best part about this trend is that it’s perfect whether you want to go big or small with your wedding decor! Think delicate bud vases down the center of a long table featuring a big, fluffy bloom like a peony or think massive hanging installations or ceremony backdrops using something textural like babies breath or pampas grass.

It’s such a simple idea but wait until you see the HUGE visual impact this look creates! Couples can now choose a single flower that they love and run with it! Super modern and often very sculptural designs emerge and create conversation starting statement pieces. Scroll along with us and see some of our favorite designs featuring the Mono-Floral look!

Using one kind of flower doesn’t mean you’re stuck to just one color. Most flower varieties come in many different shades and hues so you can talk to your floral designer about how to create a fun Mono-Floral color palette like this sea blue and soft lavender look above!

A minimalist’s Heaven! Create a unique and modern bridal bouquet using dyed foliage that’s been tinted in your favorite shade. With more and more weddings featuring trendy tinted greenery, the sky’s the limit as far as color goes!

We absolutely LOVE this Mono-Floral ceremony setup! We’re sure you’ve seen the rad babies breath clouds that have been floating around on social media lately. Get creative and design a similar look with a different flower! This romantic installation was created solely out of soft, white spirea.

Like the idea of Mono-Floral but still want to have that garden-wedding feel? Go mono with your flowers but add in a few different varieties of greenery to break up the florals and add texture and movement! The installation above features tons of blushy-peach roses with the addition of soft, muted greenery for an organic look!

One of the best things about the Mono-Floral trend? It could help you save some money while still creating show-stopping florals. Your florist has to purchase your wedding flowers in bulk. That means they must by a full bunch of each type of flower you want to bring into a design. When you start incorporating 10, 15 or even 20 different types of flowers into just your bridal bouquet, that budget can quickly skyrocket! Using a single type of flower allows your florist to use that bulk purchase to your benefit. Let them get creative with the design and turn that single flower variety into a masterpiece like the blush-toned babies breath arch above!

You KNOW we love pampas grass so when we see a wedding that created both ceremony AND reception installations using this fluffy, boho bloom, are hearts flutter!
