As our year draws to a close, we are busy looking ahead to 2017! We’ve pulled together a few of the best trends we see for the new year, including what’s hot and what’s not for your upcoming wedding or event. Read on to ensure that your own special day is right on track with the most current designs to impress your guests and create a truly memorable look.
We saw more and more couples choosing to make or purchase beautiful floral garlands to dress their venue. These garlands are a fab DIY project that lets you cut costs by ordering your flowers in bulk from a reputable online vendor. Use the garlands to dress up your ceremony, frame an aisle, decorate special seating areas, or accent a chandelier. There are so many uses for floral garlands that your imagination is the limit!
Old Fashioned Flowers
Flowers like mums, carnations and daisies are making a comeback! This is also wonderful news for your budget as these beautiful flowers also tend to be some of the most cost effective. This vintage look will continue to trend big in the new year. Think also roses, hydrangeas, peonies and other old fashioned blooms and add special charm to your big day.
Floral Table Runners
More couples or event planners are opting out of traditional centerpieces in vases in favor of the more “wild” and unstructured look of a floral table runner. You can DIY this too: simply pick your fave flowers and greens and artfully arrange them down the middle of your tables. Your guests are sure to be impressed!
Flower Colors: Neutrals plus Bolds
Blush continues to be hot for 2017, especially when you pair a relative neutral such as blush, cream or white flowers, with a more saturated hue. Think cream paired with deep burgundy blooms, rich coral paired with pale dove accents, blush paired with hot pink or red. Mixing light with dark flowers gives life and energy to your arrangements and will keep things looking fresh and current.
We are also seeing more use of containers such a lanterns, mercury glass globes vases, vintage etched glass jars, or gold footed vases instead of more common looking vases. Again, creating a unique, unstructured ambiance or old world charm is a great way to go in 2017.
