In floral designs for weddings, traditional blooms such as roses and hydrangea are starting to play supporting roles as tall, elegant, blooming branches are becoming superstars. Blooming branches such as manzanita and cherry blossom branches are wildly popular, while birch and curly willow continues to be a perennial (and inexpensive) favorite. Brides are using these branches as ceremony decor, centerpieces, and even for the escort card display with the cards hanging from ribbon attached to the branches. The height of these branches adds a sense of natural majesty to any venue and are suited for all seasons (white birch for winter or curly willow with orchids attached to its boughs for summer). Some brides even spray-paint the branches silver or gold and add hanging crystals for a fresh take on opulence. Truly, this trend had taken root and grown into a healthy option for wedding decor.
