Here’s a pretty trend you’re going to see at nearly every wedding this year

So stylish.

The flowers.

As brides across the country will know, weddings require lots of planning and there’s so much to think about.

If you’re currently deciding on the decor and colour scheme you’d like or even just starting to think about what you *might* choose, read on.

Greenery is Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2017 so it’s only natural that it would influence certain trends, and of course you can adjust it to suit your personal taste.

Flowers are an important part of any wedding theme and this year, there’s likely to be plenty of foliage in keeping with the Pantone vision.

The great thing about this trend is that it can work with multiple colourways and to get an expert opinion on how to nail this, we chatted to Sara Gordan, Brand and Creative Director at Bloom & Wild.

“We’re seeing more foliage like green bell, ferns, bupleurum and delicate flowers set amongst them like scabiosa and spray Veronica”.

This is one area where you can potentially cut costs and plenty of brides are now doing their own flowers.

Sara says that the foliage trend lends perfectly to this as you don’t need to be a professional to get it right.

“Foliage is a really simple look to pull off for a DIY wedding as you can easily style these stems in a really chic, undone way.

“Ferns also make great table centrepieces and gifts to take home.  They’re also a symbol of grace and sincerity, how lovely is that?”

Oh and if you want to get everyone together the day before, Sara says that more and more brides are having “flower parties” the day before to make the wedding bouquets.

Save money and add another day to the wedding festivities? Now that sounds like a plan…
