Flowers play a significant part in every wedding, from the bridal bouquet to table centrepieces, and just like wedding dress designs, floral trends are regularly developing. Here are the major summer wedding trends for 2018.
Full of Foliage
There has been a dramatic increase in couples choosing designs that are filled with foliage and greenery. This trend displays a more natural look that mirrors what grows in the gardens and the fields in the summer season which is perfect for a summer wedding. You can select elements that can be directly sourced from nature, like vines, leaves, branches, which can give your décor volumes of both texture and colour.
The pantone colour of 2018 is ultraviolet, so the main palette on trend right now consists of mauve, plum, lavender and violets. Whether it’s a constant theme throughout the wedding, or there are just pops of colour here and there, this vibrant shade is perfect for the summer season. It lends itself to a variety of flowers, especially lavender: fields of lavender are known to bloom during the summer season and the purple tone dominates the horizon.
Over the years, voluminous floral décor has been on trend in all aspects, especially centrepieces. But, for 2018, the trend has moved in the opposite direction and favours minimal arrangements and simple bouquets. With one stem table decorations, you can get creative with the vases and the statement flower that you choose; have a look at our bud vases for inspiration. Also, with smaller bouquets, a more natural and loose design can enhance and flatter the wedding dress even more.
Whether you choose to follow these trends or not, your summer wedding décor plays an important part in your unique setting and whatever you choose will be significant to you. Want to keep your bouquet or decorations as a keepsake long after your special day? Contact us to discuss your wishes.
