The trend for beautiful natural foliage in wedding decor continues into 2019, and is a really effective way of creating a scheme that celebrates nature while being soft and romantic. If you’re looking for ideas to incorporate greenery and foliage into your wedding decor, here are a few ideas that are sure to enhance and tie in with your scheme…

Wrap garlands around seating

This is ideal if you’re using rustic looking seating to add interest and make what might otherwise be a simple and practical element into something beautiful. Avoid making the look uniform – try wrapping greenery around the top of the chairs, but miss a few our here and there, add lots to a few, and just a little to the others. You could even consider adding a subtle spritz of metallic paint to your greenery to add a high-end finish.

Line your top table

Define the top table by lining the front edge in greenery. A pine garland works brilliantly, decorated further with pillar candles nestled in and dotted with roses in whites or very pale pastels.

Create a garland centrepiece

This idea couldn’t be simpler, but it is very effective. Swap out fussy individual centrepieces on your tables, instead of line the full length of your table down the middle with a thick garland made from natural foliage. To decorate further include grand candelabra in among the foliage, or tea lights in simple glass holders and florals in a neutral colour palette.

Drape greenery over your entrance board

Give a nod to what’s to come, by draping greenery over the top of one side of your entrance board. Make sure the board is still readable, but make a statement with something big and eye catching, rather than just a sprig or two.

Fill metal buckets with beautiful blooms

For those empty spaces that are just crying out for a finishing touch, try filling vintage buckets with bouquets. Stick to the natural theme and fill mostly with greenery, adding a touch of colour with lavender and white blooms.

Getting the balance right is key to creating the perfect wedding decor using greenery. While you might not necessarily want to do all of the above, work out what works with your scheme and venue and go from there.
