A Shift into Deep Purple: Wedding Flower Trends for 2018

This year sees a move away from the rustic, softer palette that thrived in 2017. Now bold is beautiful with a much more vibrant, rich range of colours are coming into the mix.

Green was a huge influence last year, thanks to Pantone naming ‘greenery’ as their colour of the year. Likewise for 2018, its choice ‘ultra violet’ is set to be a big influence, with richly purple roses, orchids and hydrangeas featuring loud and proud, says Interflora.

There’s also a bigger shift into florals as statement pieces to be worn. Say goodbye to the flower crowns though, this is more along the lines of small exquisite headpieces or tiaras and wrist corsages.

It’s also about a move away from traditional table centrepieces and moving up, up, up with statement hanging arrangements of floral chandeliers providing a venue’s memorable ‘wow’ factor.

Interflora also tips dahlias and succulents as having a big presence, with the latter also doubling as a lasting gift guests can take away as a memento of the day.

There will also be an emphasis on free-flowing, looser bouquets. Elegant, delicate wreath-style bouquets and hoops as decor will also be making their mark, creating a stand-out, unique edge.

The vibe this year will be shaking things up and doing things differently – it’s all about unleashing a creative spirit.
