Flowers truly make a wedding and this year’s biggest trends do not disappoint. Gigantic bouquets and sculptural arrangements are seriously chic while punchy-coloured floral streamers add pop to any party. Other fresh ideas include loading your reception space with tons of greenery and wearing your flowers instead of carrying them.
Bigger is certainly better when it comes to bridal bouquets in 2017. Colossal, billowy arrangements like this one comprised of foraged foliage, tweedia, delphinium, anemone, caramel antike garden roses, blushing bride protea, ranunculus, scabiosa, snowberry, roses and spray roses make for a dramatic more-is-more look.
Greenery is the Pantone Color of the Year for 2017, and a great way to showcase the shade in a big, beautiful way at your wedding is with foraged garlands decorating your reception tables. We love a luxe looking table runner like this one created with clematis, garden rose in bud, jasmine, golden curly willow, magnolia, silver dollar and seeded eucalyptus, Italian ruscus, asparagus fern and salal.
If you want to create the ultimate Instagrammable wedding detail, this is it! We chose a palette of pink and orange carnations for our fun and fabulous streamers—it took 600 blooms, which were individually threaded on fishing wire and fastened in to place to create 30 six-foot-long streamers. Use them instead of a floral wall for amazing, interactive photo ops.
Softer bouquet silhouettes have given way to stronger, structured shapes that are both modern and romantic. An incredible mix of flowers gives this bunch its punch. It consists of ranunculus, roses, calla lilies, alstroemeria, phalaenopsis orchids, Veronica, mums, baby eucalyptus, green pittosporum, bells of Ireland and Queen Anne’s lace.
Wearable blooms are a cool alternative to traditional bouquets. For 2017, we’re loving the look of dainty floral armbands for brides and their bridal parties. These romantic accessories work with a variety of dress styles from pretty princess gowns to breezy boho sheaths. The key is keeping the flowers simple and classic like this dreamy mix of anemone, tweedia, ranunculus, dusty miller and omithagalum.
