We love the anti-austerity aspect of this trending aesthetic, favoring comfort and freedom above uptight strictness of the past.
“It’s like you’re at home, maybe the home of your ancestors, grazing off a huge table,” says Rebecca, who suggests building out this look starting with our Elegant White Palette.

Rather than sticking to a specific color scheme or floral variety, maximalism embraces a mix of textures, colors, and floral types to create a stunning and eye-catching display. This trend is perfect for couples who want to make a statement with their wedding and create a look that is both bold and beautiful.
“With so many enforced limitations from the pandemic and the post-pandemic recession haze, it’s no wonder people are celebrating with color,” says Rebecca. “And this doesn’t have to be expensive.”
“We’re seeing disco balls in flower arrangements, fabulously over-the-top retro cakes, a mix of low and high-brow ingredients, and even more so, openness to the art of a mess: a food fight, or a bunch of parakeets. “People are having fun.”
When it comes to maximalist wedding flowers, the possibilities are endless. Bouquets can feature a mix of different flowers, such as roses, cremons and anemones, in a range of colors, from bold reds and pinks to soft pastels. Centerpieces can also feature a mix of floral varieties and colors, along with unique elements like feathers, crystals, or branches.
You can’t go wrong with maximalism, especially in the vibrant and diverse city of New York, where our bold, jewel tones palette has been chosen the most. It’s the perfect way to add an extra touch of magic to your big day.
