If you’re one of the lucky ones who received a sparkling gift for Valentine’s Day, congratulations! Here is the beginning of the wonderful process of planning your very special day! The next few weeks and months will more than likely be a whirlwind of congratulations wishes, wedding fairs, Pinterest boards and wedding magazine purchases. Ultimately, choices such as your dress and venue and colour scheme will start to dictate your choices, but for now enjoy imagining the endless possibilities!
Here’s is our view on the top wedding flower trends for 2017 for you to peruse at your leisure!
1, Back to traditional bouquets
Teardrop or trailing and shower bouquets are making a comeback, with a less formal feel of days gone by. These look particularly spectacular when held against with a sleek and simple dress, really becoming a focal point of your bridal image.
2, Floral head crowns
Floral crowns are still a huge trend that shows no sign of slowing, whether full crowns of blooming peonies or garden roses or simple and delicate hairbands made from waxflower, spray roses, lavender or gypysophila. These can truly transform any hairstyle and be a true crowning glory!
3, Wild and natural
Over-sized, unstructured and loose arrangements and bouquets continue to grow in popularity, accentuating your chosen blooms with masses of foliage including seeded eucalyptus, asparagus ferns and flowing ivy or jasmine. These large arrangements use flowers at varying heights to create a feeling rich texture and depth.
4, Vintage vibes
Big blousy blooms of peonies, hydrangea, garden roses and wax flowers in muted soft hues of pink, peach and ivory, are remaining popular as ever. They look just as gorgeous massed together in bouquets as they do as single stems in distressed votives or pretty china teacups.
5, Geometric, the new go to!
The interiors trend for geometric shapes is clearly visible in wedding design. Geometric lanterns and bold shapes look amazing as table centres, especially when teamed with the ambience and glow of candlelight.
6, ‘Just picked’
With the popularity of tepee’s, barn and outdoor weddings grow, so does the request for that ‘just picked’ look for wedding flowers. Wild, country flowers in jam jars and relaxed, sat on logs with hints of natural moss are the way to go with this look.
7, Metallic muse
There is a visible sign that metallic are hot news! With the return of rose gold, gold, champagne, silver and pewter. These work well to create to your look, with distressed mercury glassware for a vintage shabby chic feel to high shine trumpet vases for large elegant and opulent tablecentres. Or a timeless look with candelabra and candlesticks or votives. Make metallics your new muse!
8, Go big or go home
With Pantones colour of the year being named as Greenery, foliage is HUGE this year and should be used in abundance. Ferns, eucalyptus and ruscus and ivy are really effective and can be used in floral installations such as arches, wreaths and garlands to create a really dramatic look!
