5 Wedding Floral Trends for 2017

Since Spring (and Spring weather!), has officially arrived in Wisconsin, we asked our Wedding Coordinator, Wendi, to put together a list of the top floral trends for 2017. Here’s what she said:

1. Paper Flowers

“We’re seeing paper flowers EVERYWHERE this year,” Wendi says. “They’re great because they’re not only budget friendly, they’re also a beautiful way to provide a unique, customizable look for a ceremony and reception.”

You can purchase paper flowers online via sites like Etsy, or if you’re creative, you can have your bridesmaids help you make them with tutorials like this one from Design Every Day.

2. Pantone Greenery

7“Every year, Pantone releases a color of the year. For 2017, it’s Greenery, so we’re seeing a lot of this color in floral displays.”

If you love this color, you can also incorporate it into your entire design scheme, including bridesmaids dresses or bouquets, linens, invitations, menu cards, and place cards. If you’re going for a more subtle look, try pairing this color with ivories, golds, and darker greens. If you love a bold look, you can use other colors like raspberry, magenta, golds and silvers, and navy blue.

3. Hanging Florals

“We started seeing floral wreaths a lot in 2016, and it looks like hanging florals are not going anywhere for 2017!” Wendi says. “This year, weddings are featuring not only several suspended wreaths at varying heights, but also one large floral wreath either hanging or as a backdrop.”

4. Succulents

“Succulents are sticking around, too!” says Wendi. “From bouquets to centerpieces to favors, succulents are a great way to add greenery and texture to your floral accents. You can use real plants, or you can find some very nice fake ones at stores like Hobby Lobby and JoAnn Fabrics.”

5. Botanical Palm Leaves

“This is my favorite trend because you can actually use it as the theme for your stationery,” Wendi says. “I’ve seen couples who have even gone so far as to have smaller leaves for their place cards!”
