Wedding Flower Trends for 2017
As a Toronto area wedding florist, we see the trends in flowers every year, and are always excited to create new ideas and designs for our brides. Like our brides, we love getting inspiration from Pinterest and customizing that inspiration for their weddings. Check out our Pinterest page here to see what we’ve been up to and to get some inspiration for your wedding. https://www.pinterest.com/ExquisiteOcc/
We strive to stay on trend for our clients, and have already begun designing beautiful bouquets, centerpieces and floral décor for our 2017 brides. Here are some of the trends we are seeing for next year.
Garden Style Bouquets – Long gone are the perfectly round, tightly bound bouquets of roses. Brides are instead choosing to mix it up with blooms like peonies, dahlias, garden roses, and even the African protea for a more organic look. Rustic was a huge trend a few years back, but now we are seeing brides looking for a more refined look while still incorporating a loosely tied design.
Greenery – Foliage like Italian ruscus, seeded eucalyptus and varieties of ferns are being used in larger quantities in everything from bouquets to centerpieces – this is really adding to that garden feel. Brides are also opting for long garlands of greenery to run down the center of their tables instead of traditional centerpieces. We are seeing garlands being used on ceremony arches and on the backs of chairs at the reception. We’ve also had many requests for plants like succulents and air plants to be used in the overall designs.
Metallics – Touches of silver, gold, copper and more lately rose gold, are being incorporated into floral designs. Either some spray painted foliage or succulents to be tucked into the bouquets, boutonnieres and centerpiece flowers, or more bold accents being used in the vases for the centerpieces.

Pops of Colour – Soft shades like blush and cream combined with pops of colour like burgundy and dark pink are the popular colour combinations for 2017 wedding flowers. We are seeing many brides in Toronto looking for that eclectic feel for the overall floral design of their weddings.
