2018 Trends in Floral Design

Move over 2017, a new year is coming and it is bringing with it a whole new take on wedding floral design. While some changes may seem like a subtle shift from what we have been seeing on the cover of wedding magazines and all over our favorite floral Instagram feeds, other new trends are going to add a whole new fresh take on the flowers that will adorn your big day.


It is no secret that for the past several years, we have had major heart eyes for all things flower crowns. They have certainly been swoon worthy for brides, bridesmaids, and flower girls alike, but you may just start seeing this past trend start to evolve from larger headpieces to more petite flower tiaras. It is a more subtle accessory that has much less bulk than the traditional crown, and ties nicely into the bridal bouquet. Similarly, brides are taking that simple elegance a step further with floral jewelry such as flower bracelets, showing a new take on what is considered to be the more  traditional corsage.

Flower crowns and corsages aren’t the only thing getting a makeover in 2018, boutonnieres are also getting a face lift. New shapes and styles with the use of more unusual flowers, paired with unique textures, are giving the guys a whole new look all their own, while still complimenting their beautiful brides.

One trend from 2017 that we will see continue on throughout the next year is the “less is more” look with wedding cakes. Brides are loving a simple, sophisticated look when it comes to their cake flowers and who could blame them? The delicate touches of natural elements and pop of color make the wedding cake a centerpiece all its own without weighing it down with heavy florals. There is one thing we know we an count on, the cake will always look too beautiful to eat!

One of our favorite trending wedding details that is rising in popularity, is that of incorporating geometric shapes into the look and feel of the event. We love the idea of balancing sleek geometric shapes with soft flowers and natural elements. Whether you put gold hexagons on your wedding cake or incorporate terrarium-inspired vessels in your centerpieces, geometric shapes are an unexpected (and totally cool) addition to your décor.

You may have noticed that muted and monotoned pastels have made their way into many a bride’s color scheme, but look out 2018, bright colors are finding their way back into the spotlight. And thanks to Pantone picking Ultra Violet as their Colour of the Year, we’re expecting the trend for foliage pops of bright color to carry on way into 2018. Bouquets and decorations with plenty of beautiful leaves not only give your wedding a natural woodland look, but they’re also a lot easier on the budget! As far as bouquets go, that older traditional, compact ball shape bouquet will continue to be left behind in favor of free-flowing garden style bouquets, as well as other unique shapes for the wedding party. Already, we are seeing brides opt for a more eclectic assortment of flowers for their bouquet that combines traditional and contemporary design, with foliage that enhances the texture and gives a chic and timeless look.
