5 Ways Greenery Can Enhance Your Wedding Design
Trees, flowers and garlands, oh my!
If there’s one thing brides are hearing while planning their wedding, it’s “so, what are your colors?” It can be stressful to coordinate colors for the flowers, bridesmaids’ dresses and tablescape. But what if we told you to forget all of that? Let greenery be the focus, and add neutrals to complement it. Not only will you be on trend (it is Pantone’s color of the year, of course), but adding greenery to the setting will give an organic and lush touch for all to admire.
1. Step Up Your Venue Game
Don’t book a less-than-extraordinary venue – this is your wedding day, after all. The ceremony venue is the perfect place to naturally infuse elements of greenery. The Wayfarers Chapel grounds, for instance, are surrounded by a sanctuary of gorgeous redwood trees, Native California plants, rose garden, forest floor garden and extensive lawns. Not to mention the additional seasonal greenery throughout the chapel’s interior walls. With greenery galore, this wedding venue will capture the elegance and nature you’re looking for.
2. You’re Invited
Incorporate the greenery theme with your wedding invitations. We love the look of these watercolor-inspired designs. Get creative and have fun with it!
3. Color Palette, Be Gone!
Let greenery neutralize other colors that you are incorporating into the wedding details. Allow it to be the focus and guide your decor. Don’t be afraid to use pops of color like mint, yellow and peach in addition to neutral colors like white, cream and blush. Your greenery will be a floral masterpiece!
4. Time to Accessorize
Create cohesion and have the wedding party accessorize with subtle hints of greenery. Sprigs of lamb’s ear, lemon leaf and fern make for the perfect boutonnieres for the groomsmen. As for the bridesmaids, make them feel like garden princesses with handmade floral garland crowns. The bride-to-be can swap out the traditional hair brooch, veil or flower for fresh florals woven into a braided up-do.
5. Greenery Galore
For the reception, add touches of greenery in more places than just the tablescape. Complement the scenery with tree branches, eucalyptus leaves and garlands to create a festive, floral-filled look. Deck out the bar cart, photo booth, centerpieces and even the cake!
