The Greenery Trend


It’s seems that greenery is THE thing to use for weddings now a days. More and more brides are incorporating lush greens into their designs and overall wedding visions. The truth is that when greenery is used correctly, it can be absolutely stunning. However, when overly used or poorly designed, it can look like a hot mess!

So, what’s the trick to pulling off a beautiful and chic wedding using greenery? To me, it all boils down to the products you choose; and there are hundreds of greens to choose from guys! Not. Just. Eucalyptus. #Justsayin



Now, I know Pinterest fills our feeds with beautiful designs using eucalyptus, I'm not knocking it. I've used it myself quite a bit actually. Seeeeeeee.


All I am saying is that obtaining a posh look with greenery can be exciting, fun and beautiful! And it can smell nice too! - Ehem... #herbs. Here are some of the greens and herbs I've used in design work.


  • Olive Branches

  • Bay Leaf

  • Rosemary

  • Bush Ivy

  • Mint

  • Basil

  • Elaeagnus

  • Wild Smilax

  • Sage




These are just a few examples of wonderful greens that can be used to create spectacular designs that will give your wedding day a tasteful, chic and modern look.


In the meantime, get your greenery inspiration on by taking a peek at some of my past weddings with gorgeous greenery.

On the next blog post, I'll talk about cost. Is greenery cheaper than flowers? Stay tuned!
