The Pantone Colour of the Year is always a big indicator of what’s to come in wedding trends. Greenery – last year’s colour of choice – saw an influx of brides opting for a more foliage filled wedding day. For 2018 it’s going to be all about Ultra Violet and we could not be more excited. This glamourous shade transcends the seasons and lends itself to a variety of beautiful flowers including roses, orchids and hydrangeas. A bride looking for on-trend purple wedding flowers is sure to be spoiled for choice.
Moving on from the rose gold tones of 2017, copper will resound as the metallic of the year. Bronze accents added to your wedding flowers bring warmth and a feeling of luxe to designs. Combine with crisp white for a super stylish look.
These started to appear in some of the most stylish weddings of 2017, but for 2018 expect to see a more colourful approach to living walls. An impactful flower wall provides a brilliant backdrop not just for photos but to cake and gift tables too.
BRIDES WILL WEAR THEIR WEDDING FLOWERS
Flower crowns have been huge on the wedding scene for the last couple of years but the brides of 2018 won’t just be wearing flowers in their hair but in place of traditional wedding jewellery. Floral necklaces, tiaras and cuffs will become the accessory of the moment for fashion-forward brides.
Move over peonies, there’s a new wedding flower in town! Once dismissed as an old-fashioned flower, the Dahlia will enjoy something of a renaissance in 2018 as it tops the wish list of many a bride-to-be. This fabulously showy bloom comes in a huge range of colours and is in season from May to November, making it one of the most versatile wedding flowers around.
One of the biggest trends for 2018 will be using a single colour for floral arrangements. Using one colour creates intensity and impact while emphasising the beauty of the individual flowers. So whether it’s a sea of blue, a blanket of pure white or an array of purple tones, we can expect to see many brides sticking with a solo colour palettes this year.
Succulents are having more than just a moment. They were big in interior design in 2017 and this year they’ll be huge on the wedding scene too. Whether sitting pretty on their own or used to complement other blooms, these durable plants are a great way of adding texture to designs and arrangements. There are endless ways to style succulents for your special day but we love the idea of gifting mini succulents as favours – that way your guests will have a lasting memento of your special day.
