Dallas’ Best Kept Secret, DiFiori should be a secret no more. We were able to catch up with the design extraordinaire, Robin Brogan with DiFiori and ask her a few questions about wedding trends for the upcoming seasons. DiFiori was featured in D Weddings recently with this gorgeous lavender bouquet : Purple Reign. We love it!!
DiFiori is so excited for weddings in 2012! Weddings for this year so far are right on track with all of the color predictions. After looking at what is going on in the world of weddings, soft pastels are going to be prominent for dresses and decor. Many experts predict that soft pinks, grays, lavenders, and yellows will be the chic colors for next year. We are recommending that our brides spice up the soft hues of the décor and dress colors. Mixing bright yellows with the soft yellow dresses, or hot pinks and purples with the lavender or pink dresses. Remember one very important rule of thumb for choosing your floral colors; never mix more than three colors. If you decide to go tonal, meaning one basic color, feel free to use as many shades as you can. For example, if you want to use pink, use all shades from the palest pink to the darkest pink for beautiful depth in your floral décor. We rarely have new and unusual flowers come into our market. Flowers you can always count on getting anytime of the year are roses, spray roses, hydrangeas (in most colors), lilies and orchids (colors vary). Floral décor and design for next year will continue to reflect the passion for “lights, camera and action!” Crystals, branches, draping and lighting will be important for the ultimate wedding design.
What a fabulous designer. She keeps up with trends and starts her own and it works flawlessly! She was one of the masterminds behind Alice in Weddingland….see below for her gorgeous handy work.
Asking your designer to recommend floral that is readily available for each month of the year will help you to be able to have more affordable arrangements so that your reception can be completely decorated. Alternative centerpieces such as beautiful lamps or candles decorated with ribbon and crystals will also help to alleviate the pressure of decorating each table. These concepts have always helped us succeed as designers.
