According to the SAF magazine "Floral Management" this month, the "fresh-picked" look is in for weddings, including wild flowers, garden roses, etc. Smaller flowers are desirable.
(Is this a rejection of the huge south american type rose which has been perhaps overdone and costco-ized? Could be.)
It also could explain why our maidenhair fern is so popular this year.
