Flowers and floral arrangements will remain a central part of wedding décor and spending in 2011, according to the We TV network's annual Wedding Report.

The report found that more than 2 million weddings are projected to take place in 2011, with the bulk of wedding spending going toward bridal attire and reception entertainment as well as floral arrangements and décor.

"The overall trend for 2011 seems to be 'subtle luxury,' with a heavy emphasis on creativity and personalization," said wedding planning expert Susan Southerland. "Every element of the wedding should be tailored to reflect the couple, but not cross the line into lavish or excessive."

Other trends wedding florists see  for the year ahead include:

1. The use of large, single blooms. Many brides, bridesmaids and flower girls will carry one single flower, surrounded by minimal greenery. Varieties such as lilies, sunflowers and birds of paradise are ideal on their own. These smaller bouquets are also cost-effective and elegant!

2. Floral arrangements and bouquets with texture. According to, adding greenery, herbs and even vegetables such as mini red bell peppers can help keep costs down while achieving an eye-popping display. Choosing cheap flowers to complement these other elements can also keep the budget in check!

3. Bold colors are in! Rather than pastels, many couples are choosing shades such as rich corals, vibrant apple greens and goldenrod.

Overall, couples are expected to continue to focus on being unique, simple and elegant in all aspects of their big day - including the flowers!
