Even before the official start of the wedding season, brides-to-be are eager to plan every detail of their big event—from the venue, to the dress, to the wedding flowers. This year, floral trends have moved away from highly stylized arrangements and toward the wild and free.
Here are just a few of the most popular inspirations for the upcoming wedding season:
- Fresh Farm Flowers: Brides-to-be are seeking straight-from-the-farm flowers because they are less expensive and consistently fresh. Picture handpicked seasonal blooms in cascading bouquets tied with coarse twine, tables decorated with woodland flowers, and take-home flower pots for guests.
- Creative Foliage: Another 2017 hit is the use of branches, leaves, and vines. Many florists have shifted their focus from traditional choices to supporting greenery. Passion flowers and jasmine top the list for today’s wedding flower arrangements, and an increasing amount of couples tend towards wreaths, flower crowns, and garlands.
- Red Wine Hues: For the most romantic day of your life, you can’t settle for less than the most passionate hues. That’s why blooms in burgundy, plum, and merlot will continue to appear in late summer and fall wedding designs. Dahlias and “chocolate lace” flowers in darker shades pair beautifully with a variety of color palettes.
- Special Requests: Custom floral arrangements will always be on-trend. Most people want to personalize their big day as much as possible, so they request specific wedding flowers to be included in their bouquets and venue decor. Favorite choices include garden roses and peonies, Queen Anne’s lace, dahlias, and dusty miller.
