Staying Trendy for your Wedding April 11, 2017 05:13

Los Angeles FloristWhether you’re the kind of bride who’s always been ahead of the curve when it comes to trends or you have a more unique style, when planning a wedding, it’s impossible to avoid incorporating some trends entirely as they’re so pervasive. Vogue online recently comprised a list of wedding trends you likely won’t be able to, or want to, avoid for your 2017 wedding. It’s important for Los Angeles wedding florist, Socal Petals, to stay on top of these trends to best provide Atlanta brides with the best possible floral experience for their wedding day, so we’ve comprised a list of the hot trends you’ll want to keep an eye on this wedding season.

Grand Gestures: In years past, couples have waited until midnight for a romantic send off coupled with some grand, unexpected gesture like a rice toss or dazzling sparkler display. These grand gestures create unique experiences for guests (not to mention awesome photo opportunities!), and as such, couples have stopped waiting until the very last moment to enjoy them. Now, we’re seeing couples incorporating these types of events into the ceremony itself, usually right after the first kiss. One prognosticated trend from Vogue the florists at SoCal Petals loves is filling the ceiling of the ceremony space with drapery and flowers, and even floating orbs. This creates such a unique, romantic ambience that wows guests and allows couples to incorporate their signature floral design in new ways.

Trees: If this is the year for grand gestures, one way couples are accomplishing this is by incorporating trees. Yes, trees. Trees create a sizable impact and the atmosphere of the ceremony or reception space can be manipulated by the size, shape, and variety of tree included. Couples are using everything from Birch, Olive, and Lemon trees in their wedding spaces. Trees are an especially great option for couples who are environmentally conscious, as they can be planted after the wedding rather than tossed out like most wedding day decor.

Greenery and Color: Neutrals have been at the forefront of the color palette for weddings in the last few years, but 2017 brings about an important shift in this trend. As Pantone named Greenery as 2017’s color of the year, an emergence of the use of greenery in weddings has begun and has only picked up speed since the beginning of the year. As such, we’re seeing couples moving away from using an abundance of blooms in their floral decor and bouquets, and instead using more greenery and plant life.

While green is this year’s "it" color, neutrals are being cast aside for brighter, more vibrant colors as a whole. For what flowers are being used for weddings, Vogue has recognized a trend of color. For 2017 wedding flowers, the bolder, the better. All colors and varieties are on trend this season, and we especially love the pairing of these bright colors with the range of green hues popular at this time.

Be it greenery, trees, floral ceilings and archways, or traditional bouquets and centerpieces, this Los Angeles wedding florist can do it all.
