6 easy ways to implement greenery into your wedding decoration

Brides are ditching ornate floral setups for simple, elegant greenery as a beautiful (and budget-friendly) wedding decor alternative. It seems like it looks good in both boho and rustic styles, as well as for a stylish, minimal look. It will also resolve your problem with thinking about the whole color palette and finding perfect combinations. It’s enough to choose just different shades of green. As 2017 is the year of Greenery, it will be taking over the wedding scene this season, so see how to easily implement this color into your wedding scenery.

  1. Lush Garlands

Treat leaves as a table runner and put a lush garland on the table or above the doors. An oversized woodland table runner is a budget friendly solution and gives the table the wow factor. If you want to create a rustic and natural vibe, combine the greenery table runner with linen napkins, crystal glasses, and wooden accents. We love the idea of personalized gold place cards that you can make for each guest. However, if you want to achieve a more elegant look, complete the tablescape with romantic calligraphy stationery, as well as copper accents. Read more about terrariums below or simply use gold or copper cutlery.

  1. Dress up your chairs

If you want to bring even more greenery inside your seating area, hang leafy decorations on the backs of chairs to underline the places where guests of honor are sitting. This will look best with vintage wooden or metal chairs, but it’s also a good way to cover chairs in your venue that don’t exactly fit your style.

  1. DIY eucalyptus cake

Another way to impress your guests without spending the whole wedding budget is with the decoration of your wedding cake. You can check how easy it is to make a eucalyptus garland in our DIY guide.

  1. Invitations

Remember that your invitations are the first hint to your guests about the theme of your wedding. Use the leaves and greenery decorative elements on your stationery as a clue! You can put the same motif in your save the date and thank you cards, and use it as a table decoration as well. However, if you print the invitations on natural or recycled paper it will give them a more rustic vibe!

  1. Use terrariums and metallic accessories

A touch of copper will complete the whole table setting look and add to it a more stylish and elegant character. You can you use geometric terrariums as candle holders or non-traditional guest book. Furthermore, you can even give away small ones as take-home gifts for your guests.

  1. Draw their eyes to the sky

If you plan your wedding in a large room or a tented space, draw your guests’ attention upwards with eye-catching dangling green installations. Hanging garlands help create a more romantic feel and add color to space. If you want to achieve the “wow” effect, pair it with good lighting so everything is visible all night long.
