2017 brought in new wedding ideas, optimism and anticipation for the wedding season ahead. In 2016 we saw bride bouquet’s filled with meadow flowers, rustic arrangements and draping foliage. Venue dressing followed suit with the same flower design placed in floral arches and wall displays.
2017 was all about bringing the outdoors inside. Large oversized foliage was a trend for the year to create a very natural and organic look. The key style is simple tone flowers, pastel hues are still high in demand but the New Year brings in mixing them with a delicate amount of metallic to create a contemporary vibe.
So, 2017 was full of natural elements with lots of personalisation, geometric shape and sophisticated elegance. Read on to get the full scope of what this year showcased for wedding flower arrangement design trends.
Metallic colours brought sophistication and style into 2017 weddings. There was opportunities to incorporate metallic accents through floral designs in creative ways. Silver, copper and rose gold were the colours to go for and adding in glitter and crystals is an on-trend way to enhance any wedding floral display.
When mixed with creamy flowers and even a dusky pink, metallic is really striking. Be aware of using shine strategically though, lots of metallic is too much, save it for a delicate touch to your floral display.
Elegant footed vases that lift your flowers off the floor are the perfect addition to your floral arrangements this year. It is a hugely versatile look and can fit well with a country house wedding as well as soften the edges at a formal city venue.
Asymmetric arrangements have a fluid and relaxed style to them and give a chic feel. Compotes are perfect vases to use for this style and they can create a breath-taking impact. This garden style of arrangement fits in with the trend of bringing the outdoors inside without taking away any elegance.
Greenery was announced the 2017 Colour of the Year and it will be used in an abundance of colour schemes in the future. It is a perfect colour on its own or can be paired with a darker kale green for a monochromatic vibe. Pairing with a pale dogwood pink gives a pretty spring vibe. You can put together greenery with a hazelnut beige, kale and black for a chic contemporary vibe.
There are a few other on-trend colours you can add in with your greenery to personalise the feel of your floral design. Bright yallow pink gives a retro vibe, flame orange and pale dogwood provide a holiday vibe and island paradise blue, primrose orange and lapis yellow add in a summer-at-the-shore feel.
Large, Lush and Loose
The shape trend for 2017 featured wild and ‘gathered from the garden’. Traditional tight balls and tidy neat bouquets are a thing of the past and it’s all about going big, wide and organic. Brought in from the continued popularity of boohoo gypset-inspired wedding décor, this design style looks natural and gives a laid-back vibe, while still looking elegant and formal.
Table floral design is taking the same path this year with a mix and match style. This entails alternating elevated bouquets, with long, low centrepieces, sprawling low profile compotes, or clusters of single blooms.
