So, let's talk about 2013 and the trends we think will be hitting our bridal magazines really soon! Flowers, flowers everywhere and especially in your hair! Options available to you are flowers made from pure silk. These are usually hand cut, shaped and fixed on to either hair pins or small combs. The great thing about silk is that you get a lovely muted colour that looks amazing for the photographs and you can embellish the centres of the flowers with either Swarovski crystals or even fresh water pearls. You can ask for lace backing that surrounds the flowers giving a deeper, richer look.
Actual lines are very obvious. The eye can easily follow the design to its height and width. Actual lines sets up the skeleton of the design. Actual line flowers can be curving and flowing within the design. Implied lines in floral design provide a pathway for the eye to follow but no actual line flowers are there. Although carnations are not line flowers per say, if they are cut one taller than the other that can create a line effect. Greenery can also create a line effect. As our eyes connect the upward graduating carnations we see a line result. The third kind of line is the psychic line. This is a line that does not exist, yet we feel the line outcome. Psychic designs are made by placing flowers in a manner that directs the eye up and throughout. Two tall birds of paradise can be placed high in an arrangement, while all other flora materials are rather short and to the base. The two tall birds of paradise create a visual line and bring the visual path upward. Many oriental designs use this technique.
