5 beautiful wedding flower trend predictions for 2017, by Ali from Bloomologie

2016 will go down in history as the year flowers won Instagram. Take a glimpse at any wedding blogger’s pics, or any wedding planner’s – or see the incredible follower numbers of any creative florist for proof. Flowers are our new favourite thing in the world – fact – and so 2017 weddings are going to have some of the most amazing floral art you can imagine. If this is your year, my lovelies – then you’ve got it made.

Lovely Ali from Bloomologie very kindly shared her tips for the year’s biggest floral trends, and we can’t WAIT to see how these themes are brought into life by all our amazing florist friends. Here’s all the floral inspiration you’ll need for the next 12 months…

1. Greenery

Top of my list, and certainly top of Ali’s trend predictions as well – the Pantone colour of the year. Every year they choose a trendsetting colour, and in 2017 they’ve chosen my favourite. Greenery is the most wonderful style trend: a few statement blooms surrounded by oodles of glorious greenery are all you need…

Ali says, “I’m a sucker for succulents and in love with leaves, so the news that colour gurus Pantone have named “greenery” as their official Colour of the Year 2017 has got me super-excited. Last year I predicted the rise of foliage and botanical influences, this year I think we’ll see entire foliage-only weddings and even bouquets. It’s all about the verdant tones and lush textures.”

2. Britain is blooming

The sweeter side of Brexit (yes, there is one) – is that home grown produce will be popular, more affordable and higher in our consciousness. This means our favourite grower-florists will thrive; imported blooms and air miles will lose a little of their appeal. Ali loves British flowers – “they are seasonal, scented and so delicately beautiful. As most flowers are bought from Europe (Holland is the world’s flower capital and where the daily flower auctions are held) this means they will become more expensive this year. Savvy brides will buy British where prices are flat, and the blooms are freshest – what’s not to like?

3. Geometry class

Last year it was all about metallics, and they will still be a major feature at stylish weddings in 2017. You can expect to see more angular, geometric vases and shapes this year, in crisp white, charcoal grey, and – yes – metallics. Geometric vessels will instantly add a fashion-forward vibe to your vows.

4. Organic shapes in compotes

Wedding florists are artists: the arrangements they create have breathtaking impact because they take such skill to put together. I’ve watched many florist friends at work and seeing an asymmetrical table arrangement of fabulous flowers being made is one of the loveliest things… until Ali explained, I had no idea they were called ‘compotes’!

Compotes are elegant footed vases that lift your flowers off the floor and lend themselves to chic, asymmetric arrangements with a fluid, relaxed style – they’re ideal for raising the style stakes at a country wedding or softening the edges at a formal city venue. In a word: versatile.

5. Insta-cool Installations

Everyone wants a show-stopping, eye-popping ‘Instagram shot’ – so we predict installations will get bigger and bolder, whether it’s flowering arches, overflowing, over-sized urns, hanging floral meadows or flower walls (but cool, natural and wild ones, NOT the false, overly perfect Kardashian-style block of flowers). And a #hashtag to go with them, of course!
