We polled our community of florists to find out what the experts think will be the biggest trends of 2018 and which trends our florists think will stay back in 2017 (so last year). We also asked YOU to see what you think about floral trends in 2018.
As the Pantone Color of the year, Ultra Violet is going to be all the rage when it comes to wedding flowers. With couples opting for more color in general, the majority of our florists picked Ultra Violet as the biggest trend of 2018.
Bloomerent florist Bride and Blossom shared with us, “The beauty of ultra violet is that it pairs so well with many different color palettes, from a monochromatic palette of ultra violet, fuchsia, lavender, pink and burgundy, to a muted palette of lilac, violet, dusty rose, mauve and hints of olive and pale green.”

Dutch Masters Inspired Arrangements
Couples have been requesting more deconstructed arrangements in the past few years and the current trend is remarkably similar to the old Dutch Masters paintings. The combination of fruit and greenery paired with fewer, but larger, blooms draws upon the artistic nature of this period.
San Francisco Bloomerent florist Rust and Flourish adds, “I love the Dutch Masters floral trend picking up! We are exposed to so many unique materials to use for these beautifully large statement centerpieces with intense movement and bold colors.”

Unique Floral Installations
The trend started with flower walls but in the past year has been consistently elevated. In 2018, we can expect to see amazing ceremony pieces, incredible hanging arrangements and floating floral pieces over dance floors.
