Wedding season is in full swing at the moment. We’re in the last of spring and the summer of 2017/18 is on the horizon. So what’s coming for the new season? What are the floral wedding trends we’re looking out for?
For the summer season we’re moving away from the muted blush colours of spring and mixing it up with an array of different flower varieties, shapes and colours. Mix daisies and lily of the valley with oversized garden roses, ranunculus, and spiky astilbes for volume and rich colour contrasts. Feature all of it against a backdrop of lush greenery that’s fast becoming the signature of 2017 for all seasons.
More and more we’re seeing floral headpieces that match the bride's bouquets for an elegant affordable bridal accessory. Use a few carefully selected, colourful blooms featured within the bouquets along with some ornamental greenery for a bridal headpiece that’s bohemian luxe to a T. For bridesmaids, matching wrist corsages can be added to the mix and, of course, for groomsmen and the groom delicate boutonnieres can be used for a cohesive, put together bridal party that embodies rustic chic.
Maybe it’s because the Pantone colour of the year was greenery or maybe it just because mother nature is beautiful, either way, this summer we’re seeing greenery being used as a feature piece in all aspects of the wedding. From hanging installations, ceremony arches to table runners and even an increased presence of flowers with foliage, green leaves are being featured. A unique, organic way to celebrate the joyfulness of spring and summer especially at an outdoor venue.
Wild Wild Bouquets
Lush, opulent relaxed bouquets are becoming increasingly on-trend for the summer season. This look combines luxurious, bold, statement flowers with an abundance of greenery, continuing on the above trend. A straight-from-the-garden, these bouquets often feature seasonal, local flowers that are bold, rustic and organic in nature. The trend also makes use of deeper colours such as burgundy and dusty rose.
Overall, the trend for this season and even this year has been relaxed, natural looking bouquets that don’t look perfect and put together. Greenery is featuring heavily across all trends and mixed floral arrangements are capturing everyone’s hearts this season.
