If you're planning a celebration with little or even no flowers, you're in luck as green botanical weddings are on the rise this year. Filled with greenery, these kinds of celebrations feel refreshing yet elegant at the same time.
Leaves might not sound too exciting at first, but they actually make such versatile decorations. Style your greens loosely for a rustic celebration or pair them with modern trinkets for a more sophisticated feel. For more ideas on how to incorporate greenery into your wedding decorations, go through the slideshow below!
We’re sure you’ve seen wedding arches covered in flowers and fabrics or peppered with bits of leaves. How about an earthy wedding arch entirely made of greenery?
Don’t forget to enhance the aisle with greenery as well. You can pair the leafy plants with candles or just let them shine on their own.
And to complete the aisle decoration, add some lush vines to the chairs. You can put them on the sides or on the back of the chairs for a different look.
Welcome your guests to the reception area using wedding signs adorned with greenery. This is a great way to decorate your entrance area and introduce the guests to your botanical wedding theme.
After the signs, come the escort cards. Go beyond simple paper cards and take some cues from these beautiful, botanical-inspired escort card displays.
Greenery make perfectly adequate centerpieces for a minimalist wedding. You can add some flowers for variety, but let your greens be the star of the show by putting them in larger vases.
Getting bored of traditional table liners? Let green vines do the work instead. Using greens as table runners is an easy way to make your wedding table look instantly elegant.
On the plates
Give your guests a complete green botanical experience by adding sprigs of leaves on their plates next to the menus and place cards.
On the chairs
Don’t forget to adorn your Mr. and Mrs. seats with some greenery! This seemingly unimportant detail can really tie the whole room together.
Your wedding stage or head table will be the main focus of the evening, so make sure to decorate the area with greenery as well. One idea is to place vines and leaves or hang them from the ceiling as your reception background.
Ceiling decorations are predicted to be very popular in the upcoming year. Why not combine two trends and add greenery to the ceilings if you’re having an indoor or tented wedding?
