Our Favorite Trends for 2018 Spring Florals

The wedding is fast approaching and you’re making your final decision. Trying to stay up to date and on trends for the season? We’ve got your back! We’re loving the classics but also some more unique options as well. But your bouquets and arrangements are more than just the flowers themselves… it’s also how they’re arranged! We’re looking at a couple of the trends this season for how arrangements are being done.

The Flowers

The Styling

There are two new trends we’re seeing for bouquets this season. The first is a big incorporation of the Pantone Color of the Year, Ultra Violet! While it can be hard to find florals in this tone naturally, we’re giving a nod to the color by using softer shades like lavenders and lilacs. If you’re looking to incorporate some Ultra Violet into your big day, be sure to check out our inspiration board for all things violet!

The other trend we’re seeing and loving is having a monochromatic bouquet. While we love seeing pops of color, this look is a bit more refined and gives you the opening to really spice things up with different textures and varieties of florals. This is a really fun way to highlight your wedding color in a major way!

Gone are the days of rose gold accents. This wedding season, it’s all about mixing up the metals, incorporating jewel tones, and really ramping up the greenery. Copper is really having a moment this spring, despite it usually making an appearance in autumn weddings, and we’re loving it! One of our favorite decor trends is utilizing copper in your place settings and silverware, especially against an off-white or cream table cloth - the end result is gorgeous and timeless. Go to our Rustic Copper Story for more inspiration!

Brides that aren’t into metals or the rustic charm trend have been opting for a more modern take on their decor, and it’s something we’re seeing pop up time and time again this season. Acrylic pieces are taking over the wedding scene! Make a bold statement by ditching the traditional ceremony seating and go with acrylic chairs instead. The see-through effect will leave the entire ceremony space open and minimalist, and the clean backdrop will really let your decor and florals shine.

In terms of florals this season, they’re bigger than ever - it’s spring, after all! Brides are going with a more innovative approach to how they style their florals by choosing to use more vertical space. Think flower walls for the ceremony space and hanging arrangements in place of an over-the-top centerpiece. This allows for more space on the table to really play with your place settings, and it fills the room with springtime glam!

Another trend we’re obsessing over is the huge amount of greenery brides are incorporating in their big day. Instead of going with a condensed, colorful bouquet, get on trend with a cascading bouquet that incorporates tons of different greenery and pops of vibrant colors. Carry this same feel throughout your ceremony space and reception area for a chic and unique look! Greenery was Pantone's 2017 color of the year and it's impact is not slowing down yet!

Ditch the single-color focus for your wedding decor and go with a more unexpected (but still cohesive!) palette instead. Rich colors and hues against a lot of greenery may seem a little dark for spring, but keep the space open and airy with light, white elements and those acrylic pieces for a glamorous and elegant springtime look. Violets, maroons, and blues against creams, blush pinks, and dark greenery have created some beautiful venue spaces so far this spring!

Texture is also one of the biggest trends in 2018. Instead of going with the classic satin accents, bring in textures as rich as the colors that you’re using. Macarame is really popular in the wedding scene right now, be it for statement backdrops, table runners, or hanging decor. Add in some more unexpected textures like velvet for an expensive and sophisticated feel, but keep the heavier ones in lighter colors to keep that springtime feel!
