This year’s choice wedding flower is the gypsophila, according to one expert.
Fashionable brides who are yet to confirm their blooms for their big day with their florists may want to check they have some gypsophila in their posies, bouquet and centre pieces.
This is because editor of weddingideasmag.com Rachel Morgan claims this white-budding plant is 2012's wedding flower of the year.
She explained the small, milky blooms offer brides a vintage look that is not too expensive, adding it is "perfect for everything from bouquets to table decorations and bridesmaids' posies".
Ms Morgan indicated that softer shades and purples ought to be incorporated into wedding flowers, because these hues are on-trend for bridesmaids this summer.
"The trend for vintage is still going strong too, with lace being mixed with peach and orange pastels," the expert added.
So, white, purple and warm mutes could be in demand at florists up and down the country during wedding season this year – and brides may want to make sure they get their flowers sorted out sooner rather than later.
