Botanical wedding style is a huge trend for 2017 and 2018 weddings so you will find no shortage of beautiful wedding stationery with a hint of greenery – it’s the perfect way to show your guests just how on trend your wedding is going to be. If you really love the meaning of the Pantone Colour of the Year then you could even consider putting a quote about the meaning of new beginnings in your stationery.

When it comes to showing off your greenery themed wedding – your bridal bouquet is definitely the way to do it! Lush and leafy green bouquets will look stunning against a crisp white lace or satin wedding dress and you can create the most beautiful bohemian style bouquets using trailing greenery. Your wedding budget will also thank you as a greenery bouquet is likely to be far cheaper than sourcing more expensive flowers such as lilies and peonies.  Alternatively add colour to your bridal style with eye-catching greenery wedding accessories – Glitzy Secrets has a fabulous range of green jewellery and hair pieces.

Add to your greenery wedding style by choosing lush green bridesmaid dresses – this is a more unusual choice for bridesmaids so you can feel safe in the knowledge that your wedding style is different and unique. Try a variety of shades including emerald, lush forest and jade green to find a shade that suits your wedding and your bridesmaids beautifully.

When it comes to creating the perfect lush theme, the groom, his best man and his ushers can also co-ordinate with this style. Ask your florist to create delicate buttonholes using the same greenery that was included in your bridal bouquet, this uniform style will look great in your wedding photos and it’s amazing how the little details can really tie the whole look together.

If you love the idea of a woodland wedding or laidback boho style then a greenery wedding theme will give you some gorgeous wedding décor options. Use trailing green foliage for your wedding chairs and consider swapping more traditional floral centrepieces for lush green table runners – the contrast against a white table cloth will be so striking. Small pieces of greenery will also make beautiful place settings and can add something a little bit different to your wedding reception.

You can also have so much fun by creating a rustic style wedding cake with your cake maker. Consider having a more relaxed buttercream finish that is then completed with trailing leaves and beautiful botanical style, we are in love!
