Urban brides who relationships tell a vivid love story may be drawn to one of 2017’s trend that ventures “into the jungle.” Flower Trends Forecast describes this trend as “exotic textured prints and patterns encompassed by brilliant muted tones of jungle hues that voice a passionate call for the wild.” Let’s take a closer look at how to achieve this jungle-infused trend.
More traditional wedding flowers like yellow tulips, calla lilies, Cymbidium orchids,and maidenhair ferns intermix with exotic varieties of Birds of Paradise, plumeria, Parakeet Heliconia, pincushion proteas, and orange freesias to create trendy designs. Choosing these blooms in vibrant colors ensures you hit the mark when it comes to the trend’s reputation of alluring, sun-kissed patterns and glowing tropical hues.
Multicolored succulents, as well as tropical fruit touches like pineapple and citrus, can help add texture and color to your centerpieces.
Pull together a palette featuring splashy, lively shades of red, pink, orange, yellow, and green. Flower Trends Forecast recommends colors that appeal and add to “the allure of this refreshing, gentle trend…a warm summer tropical rain as the colors of the jungle radiate throughout the surroundings.” You can’t go wrong with sherbet or citrus-based hues or anything that screams sun-kissed. Pair them against organic, earth tones like khaki, dark olive, and gold, or even variations of blue for a truly vibrant statement.
Look for containers made from vine, cork, bamboo, and woven baskets accented with moss or foliage. Patterned vases in either bright colors or muted, earth-inspired tones work well for this style as well. Experiment and don’t fear taking a walk on the wild side when it comes to your reception decor.
An “into the jungle” theme will be most eye-catching and attractive when you work closely with a florist who understands the intricacies of blending inherently primal pieces and flowing flowers with stimulating color and texture. This is one trend in which it’s necessary to go big and go bold with your bouquets.
