More Than Bouquets

We all know bouquets are full of beautiful greenery these days: eucalyptus, myrtle, ferns, and more. But there are so many unique and fun ways to use greenery in your wedding décor and details! Scroll through for some of our favorites.

Greenery in Backdrops

A statement backdrop wall or arch can get expensive quickly. Making your backdrop entirely from more cost-effective greenery is a clever way to make a statement without blowing your budget. Greenery is neutral and can be included with almost any style or theme, so it won’t limit your other décor. Add in a few large blooms throughout your greenery-filled backdrop to add a romantic look, or weave in pampas grass for a more boho chic vibe.

Your wedding stationery sets the tone for your entire wedding. Show your guests a sneak peek of the luscious greenery they can expect at your wedding ceremony and reception by including some greenery on your wedding invitations. The greenery look can be modern, romantic, traditional or bohemian. This means you can customize your wedding invitations with greenery and still carry through your overall style.

Greenery Table Runners

Want to make a statement on your reception tables? Consider using abundant greenery as a table runner. You’ll get a bold look without the expense of blooms. You can accent your tables with greenery table runners and any other décor that fits your theme: candles, small bouquets or loose flowers. We love when couples decorate the head table with an abundance of greenery and then carry a smaller version of greenery table runners onto the other tables.
