Top Floral Trends
By now you may have heard that Pantone has named “Greenery” as the Color of the Year. At FiftyFlowers, we expect to see this shade of green being incorporated within a range of styles and color palettes, as it is so versatile. For Spring and Summer the light and fresh lime color can help ground colorful bouquets, or be used as a stand alone color. Moving into Fall and Winter, Greenery can be paired with deeper shades like plum and burgundy. This versatile color really can be used with
so many different palettes!
In addition to the color Greenery, we also expect to see a lot of actual greenery used in weddings this year. Hang vines to create a stunning ceremony backdrop, place a sprig of rosemary at every place setting, wrap your cake with olive branches, or drape garlands anywhere and everywhere. You can even forego flowers altogether and just use a variety of greens to create fresh and lush arrangements. As an added bonus, most greens are cheaper than flowers.
Another great way to incorporate flowers and greens into your wedding is to use them on your arch or canopy! You can start with one of our pre-made garlands, then add in clusters of flowers by attaching them with floral wire, or you can use loose flowers and stems of greenery tucked into floral foam and create arrangements to mount at the center and on either end of your canopy. Take a look at how these FiftyFlowers’ Brides used greenery in their weddings.
These greenery trends aren’t limited to florals either! Look for greenery to make an appearance on wedding invitations, favors, linens, jewelry and attire! So, how do you plan to use Greenery in your wedding?
