The rustic trend is set to continue in 2017 + beyond, but with one major difference: scale. Rural vibes and countryside influence will still be evident, but everything will be amplified. // Key elements to watch: wild flowers (and more of them), full table decor, neutral colour palette with darker undertones, sultry photography, reclaimed wood / heavy duty furniture decor, local produce featuring in gourmet grazing stations, and more outdoor venues; tipis, forests, farms.

Relaxed foliage with a modern edge has been growing in popularity, and Pantone’s announcement of Greenery (15-0343) as colour of the year will only help this trend grow in popularity in 2017. // Key elements to watch: green foliage, simple yet high-end styling as a must, sleek lines (think geometric shapes), white as the overriding colour, metalics, perspex menus with modern calligraphy, industrial and modern venues such as warehouses and restaurants, a relaxed atmosphere.

Nudes and neutrals can work on their own, or combined with bursts of warmer colours. There is a feeling of elegance with this trend: think luxurious and feminine. // Key elements to watch: neutral colour palettes, elegant decor and styling, traditional blooms and large bouquets, blush wedding dresses, handwritten calligraphy stationery, softer boho influences, works across most venues.

so we asked our flowery pals what floral trends they are loving at the moment .. and here’s what they had to say, along with one of their favourite seasonal bouquets :

Hedgerow Bouquet Image 1_1000px

This bouquet is full of lots of texture and muted colours. It was inspired by Dutch master paintings.

Rebecca asked for a large, chunky and loose, unstructured hand tied bouquet. When I met Rebecca it was clear from her beautifully decorated home that she loved jewel colours, so we incorporated lots of rich reds, purples and blues into the flowers along with a hint of mustard yellow and lime green for high contrast. We bound with chartreuse velvet to tie in with the jewel tones, and to give a lovely luxurious finish. We kept the style really loose and natural, with lots of big shapes and textures for autumnal impact.

Little Botanica bouquet_1000px
This day-dreamy bouquet represents a move towards the cooler and softer side of the colour spectrum. Peony, lavender, sweet pea and scabisoa create an eclectic mix of understated brights, pale pastels and natural neutrals. Petite in size it is the perfect pretty, delicate and feminie bouquet for a summer boho-chic wedding.

I love this bouquet – loose & wild with a handpicked feel. The colours are perfect for this time of year.

Spring is the perfect time for using colourful and scented flowers, from soft pastels to bold brights, I think just about any colour palette is possible.  This bouquet includes some of my Spring favorites – Lilac, Soloman’s Seal and Daffodils.

We are often given open briefs by our brides who want us to be as creative and original as possible.  The PYRUS ethos is to use as much locally grown and foraged material as possible and we embrace all natural elements in our work, not just botanicals.  We have recently begun learning to taxidermy and the delicate, ethereal beauty of bird wings adds a surprising edginess and touch of the avant garde to a bridal bouquet.

Nick_Skye146_1000pxI loved using the dusky blue alongside the vintage purple flowers for this bouquet. Using silk & artificial flowers gives me the scope to include unique colours. This bouquet was very special as it was for my sister’s wedding last November.

Floral Menagerie Bouquet 1_1000px
Spearheaded flowers and foliage appear to spring out from a central focal point, drawing the eye and at the same time blurring the edges, so to speak. This style of bouquet would suit Brides looking for wild and whimsical flowers that are comfortable to hold and look just as fantastic perched on their own as they do held in front of the perfect dress.
