Top Five Trends For A Bridal Bouquet
Getting married in 2017? Flowers are a big feature in most weddings and none more so than the bride’s bouquet.
Let’s take a look at what’s trending in bridal bouquets:
Green has been named Pantone’s trending colour of the year for 2017, so you can expect to see lots of on-trend brides opting for an overwhelming green colour in their bouquets, moving away from traditional reds, pinks and purples and yellows. From showy big acanthus leaves to small ivy, there is a natural look when opting for natural greenery in a bridal bouquet.
Whilst the dress used to be the sole attention grabber in a bride’s ensemble, the trend of over-sized bouquets means that there will be more than just your outfit to think about in 2017. This year, the saying the ‘the bigger the better’ has never been more apt. Think long draping bouquets and full arm covering arrangements rather than smaller posies.
3. Jewel Tones
In previous years, the trend for bridal bouquets has always been to favour pastel colours, but 2017 is predicted to be the year where brides are encouraged to embrace jewel tones. Don’t be afraid of bolder colours that will perfectly accent your wedding gown. Jewel tones mean sapphire blue, amethyst purple, emerald green, ruby red etc. These bright colours are the perfect accent in a colour scheme.
4. Hot Pink
Hot pink has been the colour of choice this year so far for many new collections on the catwalk as well as some of the best looks on awards show red carpets. Add some hot pink buds or blooms into a pastel bouquet to really make your flowers pop on your big day and echo it in the groomsmen’s buttonholes and bridesmaids posies.
5. Home Grown
The trend for making your bridal bouquet from scratch is going to be bigger than ever this year. If you have the time and commitment to be able to grow your own stems, then having a homemade bouquet at your wedding is a special way to make the day really personal and special.
