2018 & 2019 wedding style forecast… BEAUTIFUL!

Wedding styles are constantly in transition… that is part of what makes this business SO EXCITING! Staying a few steps ahead, forecasting the next trend styles, interpreting style trends to each client and making it their own.

2018 and 2019 weddings will continue in the overall trend of beautiful and romantic. Currently, blush pinks, champagnes, and ivory dominate with soft, fluffy blooms to create a soft, romantic, feminine look. This will continue through at least the first part of the 2018 wedding season. I predict a gentle shifting further down the road of rich, jewel tones including lush, velvety burgundy with varied shades of purple. The wild “Boho” look of the past few years is quickly being replaces with more sophisticated, elegant styles… while foliage will continue to be important, it will be more controlled as an accent to floral. I see a move stylistically to gentile southern and Mediterranean-chic.

Do you want to see our interpretations of these styles and others? Join us at area wedding showcases during January. We will be at.

Butera The Florist at PA Garden Show of York 2016

For the 2016 PA Garden Show of York, Butera the Florist will bring to life a fusion of two current wedding style trends.

According to Vincenzo Butera AAF, AIFD, PFCI, Founder and Creative Conductor at Butera The Florist, their display will feature a fusion of “Eco-Chic” and “Grandeur”. The look will blend organic, natural, even woodsy elements with rich, elegant Jewel-tone colors of Burgundy, Purple and Coral, accented with sleek glass and metallic gold.

“The combination is perfect for a somewhat rustic venue to bring in a feel of elegance, or an elegant ballroom to add rustic touches” said Butera. “This color scheme could coordinate nicely with a wide variety of dress colors, including Deep Burgundy, Purples, Gray, Champagne or Coral.”

Vince will also be a featured speaker from the Main stage on Friday March 4 at 11am and 2pm. His live floral design programs will show artistic floral design in addition to wedding bouquets created before your eyes. The highlighted wedding styles on stage will be Romantic-blush, Sorbet and Grandeur.

All fresh flowers on display and used on stage are American Grown from California and Pennsylvania. #cagrown #americangrown #originmatters
