Floral décor can so often be underestimated in the design and styling of an event. Weddings are meant to be romantic and flowers have the ability to impact that feeling. The color, shape, style, and size of arrangements all play a large role in defining the overall feel and style of your wedding. This article will outline some of the floral trends dominating the wedding industry this year. Once you have picked out some of your favorite trends and ideas you would like to include in your wedding, your florist can hone those ideas to create a cohesive style.
We are on the tail end of the mason jar trend and 2017 is looking a little more elegant. Sparkling or metallic vessels (copper, gold, + brass) are a great way to add a bit of elegance. OR. Stick to a more modern feel with terrariums, geometrics, and cloches.
With the trends steering towards organic free flowing shapes, lush greenery is the perfect addition to create a wild, weeping arrangement. Incorporating lavish foliage to your arbors, reception chandeliers, and centerpieces is stunning and an area at a lower price point than full floral arrangements.
Displaying your centerpiece midair draws the eyes up giving the illusion of a larger space as well as creating an unobstructed view for your guests.
Brides are being increasingly creative in their décor selections and utilizing not just flowers but even potted plants. This trend saves money and leaves you with a memento that can be given to family members, attendants, or planted in your own garden and cherished for years to come.
The explosion of succulents in wedding bouquets and arrangements happened in 2016 and has been featured on Pinterest, in wedding magazines, and on Instagram. In 2017 we expect to see succulents even more! They are stunning in arrangements but can be even more beautiful on their own.
Beautiful blooming Peonies and Garden Roses are classics and will remain on the scene. Other blooms we are admiring this year are Tulips, Anemones, and Ranunculus. These blooms come in an array of colors to coordinate with many color schemes and when cut long they are a perfect fit for the wild arrangement styles we expect to see.
