2017 Wedding Flower Trends By Season
Posted on 30 November 2016
We at Bloomingmore are proud to work with some of the best wedding planners and floral designers around the country and love to see how they turn our blooms into works of art. With so many options available, brides can easily get lost in the details. For this reason, with the help of our network of designers, we have created a list of the biggest trends we expect to see in 2017 and simplified them into easy to follow looks.
Without a doubt 2017 winter weddings are focusing on neutral color pallets with lots of white flowers and pops of natural leafy greens. Brides are opting for a fresh and elegant look for both indoor our outdoor weddings.

Within this look, 2017 Winter Brides are making their bridal bouquet a central focus of design. They are either going big and natural or staying small but adding pops of color. Winter weddings are opting for roses, carnations, and football mums with touches of minty eucalyptus, fresh green ruscus, or ruby red hypericum.

Winter brides are big on flower crowns for their little flower girls. All green crowns are a new trend for this season and can be made at home following a tutorial using cocculus, ruscus, or viburnium. More traditional brides can use baby’s breath for a softer look.

2017 Spring Weddings will be romantic events with dreamy details from the ceremony to the reception. Welcome your guests with little flower details on the chairs and stay consistent throughout the event with similar colors and styles during the reception.

In outdoor weddings these small details buildup to a grand backdrop which creates a stunning alter. 2017 Spring Brides are either opting for one grand gesture such as a giant wreath with natural greens (try ruscus or eucalyptus) and soft roses or going more vintage with a curtain of roses and old frames.

Personalization is key to achieving this dream-like ambiance. Ensure your reception has a message table with a small bouquet of flowers (could be a bridesmaid’s bouquet following the ceremony) and invite your guests to embrace the moment with either a Polaroid camera or a guest book.

Summer 2017 Weddings are all about pops of color. White flowers are used throughout the ceremony and reception with soft pinks, golds, and tiny details of navy. Taken together, this color palette creates a warm sparkly atmosphere full of summer life.

Summer 2017 brides will be looking to add details to their tables using a mix of painted greens and petals in coral, pink, and gold against white linen. Summer brides are also including these soft details into their hairdos. We recommend using baby’s breath, greens, and mini calla lilies for an extra romantic look.

The trend for 2017 will be to celebrate outdoors where guests can enjoy nature and better appreciate the small details of your wedding. With this, comes the freedom to be able to use fresh petals in your wedding colors. Provide each guest with a small amount of petals for the perfect exit.

Cranberry will be the official color for Fall 2017 Weddings. We began to see this color in a few weddings this year but it is sure to take off in the following years. Small touches of white, orange, and yellow are being used to complement this deep red. Ideal flowers for this season include cranberry roses, white carnations, and deep greens such as viburnum.

These colors are not only for the bridesmaids but are found in all the details. Include these colors in your ceremony either in the form of chair decorations or petals along the aisle. Contrast this free look with small yet sophisticated centerpieces for the reception.
