While flowers are an integral part of wedding decor, probably even its backbone, there's something about the presence of greenery that amplifies the entire function's look. It's like the presence of green in wedding decor brings the outdoors inside and the natural shade creates a classic, crisp and clean look. 

Irrespective of whether you’re hosting a glam, boho, tropical, or modern wedding; lush greens are a gorgeous addition to any theme. Plus, there's plenty of room for creativity when it comes to selecting the greenery you want to include. You can keep it simple with a few branches or make it lavish with suspended green installations. Furthermore, seasonal greenery can be used to modify your decor according to the time of the year, like fragrant pine for the cold weather or eye-catching monstera leaves for balmy temperatures. 

Not only are green leaves a stunning decoration, but it’s also a budget-friendly option. So,  if you’re looking for ways to make every head turn without breaking the bank, these fresh greenery ideas will not disappoint. 

Incorporate Greenery Into Your Wedding Decor

1. Add A Botanical Design To Your Invites

8. Use It for Your Centerpiece

The classic floral centrepiece has been done before. If you want something bigger and bolder, place lemon trees in the middle of your reception table or pick some terrariums with succulents in them. Each centrepiece is either tall enough or short enough so that people can see the person across them. These plants won't just look pretty and smell fantastic; they’re also practical!

9. Ditch the Traditional Floral Bouquet

For the Christian brides out there, it's time to shake up the traditions. Choose a bouquet of foliage over florals and walk down the aisle in your cascading outfit with an ethereal vibe. Not to mention, the vivid rich hues will pop against a white wedding dress. 

10. Combine It With Drapery

Transport your guests to a tranquil garden by using greenery indoors! You can wrap green strands around wooden rafters on your ceiling or mix your drapery with leafy wreathes. Adding soft drapery and pretty floral chandeliers will give your venue a glam and upscale feel.

11. Dress Up Your Chairs

Chair decor is a great way to express your personality on the big day, and many of them can be creative and easy DIY projects, from fabric bows, ribbons and flower wreaths. A unique and fun way to spice up your decor is by marking your chairs with beautiful wreaths of greens. Affixing these greens to the back of the chairs gives it a more rustic and modern vibe.
