Beautiful blooms, breathtaking arrangements, and bold unique pairings can transform your event into a magical boho gathering, give it a touch of old world romance,  or call to mind the formal elegance of a traditional Victorian-style wedding.

So what wedding flower trends can you expect to see this year?

1) Bringing The Outdoors In – The Natural Look

One of the leading trends you can expect to see in 2017 is “bringing the outdoors in”, as couples lean towards a more natural, seemingly effortless look. This look combines large, over-sized foliage accented with  flowers, berries,  seed pods , and branches or twigs as accents.

This trend is especially popular with couples who would love an outdoor wedding, but are concerned about the weather ruining their special day.

2) Garden Style – Informal Bouquets & Florals

Another aspect of ‘the natural’ look is one hard-to-miss trend –  the move away from tight, perfectly arranged florals  – towards the loose, informal, garden-style  bouquets.

3) Soft Color Palettes accented with Rich Pops of Color

Color palettes featuring soft creams, pastels and light pinks – with pops of brights are growing in popularity, and you can expect to see a lot more of it in 2017!

The arrangements feature primarily light, pale flowers, accented with the occasional pop of color –  fuschia, orange, red, deep green or blues create accents of color in this unique floral style.

Another commonly combined aspect of this look is the use of grays, and gray-blues, to really make the colors pop.
