2017-2018 Wedding Floral Trends to Love

While there are many wedding styles that have increased in popularity over the last few years, only a select few of these fads are timeless and are likely to stick around for a while. As a wedding florist, I see new color palettes, styles, themes, and specific flowers that become the “must have” for brides each year.

For weddings in 2017 and 2018, I’m beginning to see a few gorgeous trends that I absolutely love — and you should, too! Take a look at these floral trends to spark your wedding inspiration.

Muted Tones and Earthy Colors

In 2017, there has been a huge shift in color trends, and I expect this will extend far into 2018 as well. Arrangements in the past used to be bright, bold, and loud. Over the next couple of years, you’ll notice an increase in neutral, soft, and earthy undertones.

And this doesn’t mean they won’t be colorful! They will simply have a more organic color palette to them, focused on more natural colors with a softer style. Out of all the trends I’ve seen growing popularity, this is by far my favorite!

Natural Elements

What goes best with flowers? Other natural elements of course! More weddings now than ever before are including wedding ceremony decorations that have a truly organic feel — and I love it!

We will be seeing lots of pinecones, leaves, branches, varieties of greenery, and other natural elements intermixed in our arrangements this year and next year. Having these elements will give a beautiful texture that every bride is craving. These natural additions are subtle, earthy, and cost friendly. They can also say a lot about the theme or season, which makes it all the more fun to plan and decorate.

Lots of Green

Whether it’s a beautiful garland winding down the handrails on a wedding venue staircase, or soft sage centerpieces along the reception tables, more couples are beginning to add more greenery to their wedding decor.

There are also many brides adding a touch of this beautiful color palette to their wedding-day hairstyles and bridal bouquets, letting the leaves take on a more important role in bringing an organic vibe to their wedding.

Over-the-Top Floral Installations

Whether you are saying your vows or shedding a tear during your Maid of Honor’s speech, a flower installation gives the the right amount of impact to “wow” your guests without taking away from the moment. I truly believe that each arrangement should only enhance your wedding day and never take away from the love that is being celebrated.

Some beautiful examples include hanging floral arrangements above reception tables, dramatic flower backdrops for indoor ceremonies, and the ever-so-gorgeous vine-and-drape archway combo!

Highly recommend Roots Floral Design - absolutely beautiful!

“Kaytee is an absolute GEM! She has so much passion and care for what she does, that you feel like she's a friend more than a vendor. She walks you through each step of the floral process with organization, examples, cost, and detail -- all things that make my detail-oriented heart happy. The end result far exceeded anything we could have hoped for or imagined. ALL. THE. GREENERY. Future brides, run, don't walk to Roots for your wedding. From start to finish, she took care of every single floral need to make our day positively beautiful.”

-Laura, Summer 2019 Wedding


"Kaytee became so much more than a vendor for us. The first time I met her I felt as though I met a long lost friend. She was the very first vendor I chose for the wedding (even before the venue) and she lived up to all my expectations and went above and beyond.  Each time I met with her I felt confident that she completely comprehended my wants and would fashion them into something that looks put together, yet natural. The day-of she silently transformed a bland rustic space into an enchanting, romantic barn. I couldn't have asked for anything more beautiful or unique."

-Grace, Spring 2019 Wedding


"Kaytee was so great to work with!!! I provided her with some floral inspirations from Pinterest and Instagram but gave her a lot of free rein coming up with the flowers for our wedding and she went above and beyond expectations. Our photographer was obsessed with all the bouquets and we got so many great pictures of them! She did such a good job making my smaller budget work to make high impact arrangements. She's also the sweetest person to be around!"
