Fall Floral Trends for Your WeddingAugust 30, 2017
Type in ‘fall wedding’ into Pinterest and you’ll be bombarded by vibrant oranges, deep purples, neon yellows, and pumpkins, so many pumpkins. While your traditional autumn wedding themes, will never fall out of style, we’re looking ahead to what’s trending in 2017. Here are our three favorite floral themes for fall weddings this year!
A neutral theme in the flower world, rarely suggests a strictly white palate. While a crisp, bleached out, theme can be stunning, we love using a mixture of pale colors, to provide subtle beauty, with plenty of greens, to add dimension. A neutral color palate is the perfect option for any bride who wants her wedding blooms to look just as stylish 20 years from now, as they will when she walks down the aisle. Neutrals also span across seasons. Meaning, your mid-september wedding doesn’t have to fall into a categorical theme, giving you freedom and more range on Pinterest (and who doesn't love that?!).
One of our favorite things about neutrals is your ability to choose from so many varieties of flowers. If you’re a rose girl at heart, we love pairing white and peach roses, with elegant stems of ruscus and eucalyptus. If you’re dreaming of something a little bit more unpredictable we suggest a mixture of white ranunculus and peonies with the addition of silver brunia, pear foliage, and dusty miller.
The Wild Side
We know it's not just our Insta feeds that have been blowing up with wild-inspired blooms. Flower designers to the likes of @freshdesignsflorists, @textureflorals, and @tinge have brought back the gardenesque arrangements. Gone are the days of tight, well formed, styles that have graced the wedding industry for decades.
So what’s the key to wild blooms? Texture! If you’ve ever attended one of our classes you know that a textural element is one of our keys to a striking arrangement. Not only does it add movement, but it brings that wow-factor to life! This fall we love the idea of opting for feathery crocosmia and velvety coxcomb. If you’re looking for non-floral accents we often use hypericum berries, and love the natural feel of unique elements like fiddlehead ferns or wooly lamb's ear!
Shades of Burgundy
No matter your wine preferences, the deep tones of merlot, pinot noir, and cabernet always remain in style in fall wedding arrangements. So what makes this style unique to 2017? The tasteful pairing with blush pinks.
By pairing such daring and rich colors, with muted hues, you’ll gracefully brush past the Christmas palate and still give wind to the summery colors that will be fading. Pair this combination with one of our favorite textural elements, eucalyptus. It’s frosted leaves will add a contrasting color to the mix, giving life and depth to a timelessly, romantic ensemble.
