Choosing the floral arrangements for a wedding is arguably one of the most important pieces of planning. From the aisle to the bouquets to the centerpieces, flowers set the mood of the day. They bring color, context and ambiance, transforming your venue into an oasis of natural beauty. However, one of the hottest trends this year is the increased use of greenery and green plant elements into your wedding – from rustic to romantic, greens are making a bold statement.
Increasing greenery has the effect of making the color scheme “pop”. Have you ever seen a sea of green bushes, interrupted by the occasional brilliant bloom? That flower seems to stand out even more vividly on its own. The same effect can be had by using large ivy leaves in your bouquets, with large, colorful flowers interspersed. Mint and rosemary leaves are also wonderful in bouquets.
The ceremony and reception venues can be similarly dressed. A traditional chuppah or altar can be graced with climbing greens, accented by your floral color scheme. This gives off a wonderful, natural feeling; and by incorporating the same greens as in your bouquets, the entire day will be tied together beautifully.
Similarly, depending on the theme of your wedding, green plants and succulents are surprising and elegant choices for table runners, centerpieces or even individual favors for your guests. We love the idea of tiny terrariums for guests to take home; vines draped from the ceiling, or tabletop succulent gardens
