Pantone Color Report – Spring Weddings

spring weddingsEach year, the Pantone Color Institute releases a list of the colors that fashion designers are using for the following year’s hottest fashions. These colors tend to predict the hottest hues in fashion, in home design, and in weddings. From the dresses to the bouquets to the venues, these are the colors that will be trending. And if you are among those planning spring weddings, perhaps these colors can inspire you.

The 2017 Color of the Year has been announced – and it is Greenery! This yellow-green shade is similar to chartreuse and is found in blooms such as cymbidium orchids, green hydrangea, and Fuji mums.

The colors of 2017 range from understated to vivid, but they all reflect the beautiful shades found in nature and the elements. The designers at Bagoy’s Florist & Home are experts at matching your favorite color, whatever it may be, with the perfect flowers for your wedding day.

Tall Centerpieces for Your Alaskan Wedding

tall centerpiecesA wedding is such a unique and personal celebration; so although there are many trends each wedding season, there are just as many ways to make those ideas all yours.


When it comes to floral trends in 2016, there has been a return to romance. Chandeliers, Edison lighting and candles are all popular ways to create soft and romantic ambiance at this year’s hottest weddings. Bouquets and centerpieces are still relying on traditional flowers and colors such as whites and pastels; but they are often showcased in non-traditional displays and arrangements. An ongoing trend in wedding planning has been to utilize complementary flowers and details, but the arrangements vary from table to table; or even bouquet to bouquet.

Table flowers are ready to take center stage – this year, multi-level arrangements give interest to your décor. Tall and soaring centerpieces add elegance to your guest’s seating; surrounding them with lower elements such as lanterns, candles and baubles provides beautiful depth.


You can create impressive bouquets for your centerpieces in a variety of ways. You may choose to utilize tall, slender vases; vintage boxes as pedestals to elevate the bouquets, or to create arrangements with towering stalks of blooms – such as snapdragons, gladioli or larkspur – for added height. The floral designers at Bagoy’s Florist will be happy to bring to life your vision of the perfect wedding centerpiece.


However you choose to decorate your wedding ceremony, venue or tables, Bagoy’s Florist is your Anchorage wedding source. Tell us your ideas, and we will advise you as to the perfect varieties of flowers to utilize to achieve the desired effect. Tall and elegant centerpieces are trending in 2016 – how can you personalize this sophisticated favorite? Bagoy’s Florist & Home is here to help.

The top trending hues for 2016 are Rose Quartz and Serenity; muted but rich shades of pink and blue that look elegant on heir own, or paired together. These colors feel natural, softer than the vibrant choices of the past – and also convey the comfort of a vintage ambiance.
