5 Ways to Use Greenery in Your Wedding Decor

We all know that flowers are the most popular decor element for weddings, and act as a way for couples for showcase their taste and style.  Another very simple way to add some depth to the decor on your big day is by also incorporating greenery.

 Beautini recently partnered with Rothweiler Event Design and Alicia King Photography for a styled shoot where greenery was a huge part of the decor, and they did it in such a cool and creative share that I have been dying to share with you. Here are five of my favorites:

1) LINING THE BANISTER

If you’re a bride who is lucky enough to have a staircase to walk down when making your grand entrance, lining the banister is a MUST.  Flowers can be too much, but greenery adds just enough color and texture without taking the focus away from the main event… you and your beautiful dress.

2) DRAPED FROM THE HORSES BRIDLE

Ok, so I know most people don’t have a horse just hanging out at their wedding, ready to pose with for photos.   But I love how greenery was creatively used to have the horse “match” the rest of the wedding decor!

3) TOPPING THE CAKE

Chances are, your probably worked tirelessly with your cake baker to design the perfect cake for your big day, so you don’t want anything too crazy to take away from it. Greenery adds a subtle pop of color and texture to a simple cake!

4) SPILLING OUT OF EXTRA DECOR PIECES

Again, not many weddings have a beautiful antique dresser to use as a photo prop, but this is a GREAT idea to add some texture and detail to your big day.  No matter what the prop, the use of the greenery spilling out of the drawers tied the dresser in with the rest of the decor!

5) LINING THE PHOTO BACKDROP FENCE

In this shoot, we were up on a hill and there was a beautiful valley that created the most stunning backdrop for photos.  The fence that lined the hill had some greenery draped along it, which made the backdrop feel lush and colorful, but didn’t overpower the shots.  Look at how beautiful!

Have you seen greenery used in wedding decor in a cool way? Let me know if the comments!

Thanks to Alicia King Photography for the beautiful photos.
