2017 Floral Wedding Trends with Florals by Sam Nass

April 11, 2017

Finally some warmer weather!  With a bit of spring fever around here I got together with Florals by Sam Nass to talk about the 2017 floral wedding trends. Much to my surprise, 2016 was already ahead of the ‘greenery’ trend. With greenery being the 2017 Pantone Color of the Year I expected this would be a wedding trend that we would see a lot of. It turns out greenery was already a popular choice when it came to wedding flowers in 2016. Well I say bring on the green! Read on to see what else 2017 has in store.

I had the pleasure of meeting Sam at a few of our local networking events and since have become great friends.  She’s a sweetheart and truly passionate about what she does.  After leaving a corporate career to pursue a creative passion, she opened up shop in our little home town of Saratoga Springs, NY and is bringing her style of free-spirited modern elegance to the capital district.  We absolutely love her work and are so thankful she took some time to give our brides a few tips on what’s trending in the floral industry!  Thanks Sam!

What are some newer trends you are noticing with boutonnieres?

I am seeing grooms and groomsmen falling into two camps: no boutonnière or opting for a highly personalized one. Black tie events lean towards having pocket squares and no boutonnieres, a trend we saw with the “Gatsby era” and people looking for that classic look from yesteryear. For non formal events, where couples have opted to go with boutonnieres we are seeing them reflecting and complementing their chosen venue and incorporating their own personalities and interests – i.e. golf tees, fishing flies, hops etc…
Color wise, what do you predict we will see a lot of in 2017?
My prediction is that we will continue to see the monochromatic palette of white/ivory/blush with contrasting greens. This has been very popular in 2016 and I feel it will continue throughout 2017. Foliage is also taking more of a centerstage, with many couples opting for no florals at all and looking for highly textural arrangements and bouquets of contrasting foliage and berries (love!). Tall centerpieces are being replaced by foliage runners, foliage decor on chandeliers and bringing the outdoors in. I have been seeing this trend since last year –  way ahead of Pantone’s announcement of “Greenery” being the color choice for 2017.

Seasonally, are brides still sticking with the classics (pastels in spring, fall foliage.. etc)
I see couples largely opting for monochromatic palette with muted and darker hues introduced in the fall/winter months. Couples are using seasonal colors and hues as complimentary additions to more a muted palette, not necessarily as a primary feature.

“I am excited to see that the mason jar movement is fading (hurrah!).

Couples are becoming more interested in unique vessels and mixed metals continue to be a popular ‘go to’ for vases and candleholders.”

 

When it comes to floral wedding trends, Samantha Nass is quite the expert.  We are so excited to work with her more in this upcoming season!
