More and more couples are putting seasonal, locally sourced food on the menu, and they’re extending that philosophy to flowers. They want farm fresh flowers, preferably from a grower with whom they’ve developed a relationship. Buying local and in season goes along with the ecofriendly mindset some couples have when planning their weddings.
Romantic dahlias are extremely popular. They’re available in a variety of styles and colors, which make them versatile for all styles of weddings. “Old” flowers are making a comeback, too, according to Floret Flowers. Look for heirloom and new cultivars of classic flowers like carnations, zinnias, and chrysanthemums.
You won’t see as many bright and bold bouquets in 2017, according to flower experts. Toned-down and muddy tones are popular, and they go well with neutrals. You’ll also see a lot of red wine colors in wedding flowers, which is a throwback to Marsala, Pantone’s 2015 Color of the Year. Trending neutral gray also begins to make an appearance in wedding flowers, and couples are using simple greenery to decorate, a nod to Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year.
