Gorgeous Laurel Leaf and Wreath Wedding Ideas August 07, 2017
As you may know, greenery has been one of the hottest wedding trends of 2017 and it looks like it’s here to stay. Inspired by Pantone’s Colour of the Year, we are smitten with the thought of using lovely laurel leaf and wreath details throughout your wedding day. It can effortlessly adapt to any season, whether you’re planning a Summer or Winter celebration. You can give it a rustic vibe by using lots of natural wooden and hessian details, or you can give it a luxurious feel by teaming it with glamorous metallic hues. The choice is yours…

We will start with your wedding stationery, as this is the first glimpse of your gorgeous wedding that your guests will get. Watercolour wreath illustrations on white paper will set the scene for your special day, and you can use the same design for your invitations, table stationery and even the ‘thank you’ cards. Using watercolour tones will help to keep your stationery looking soft, romantic and ethereal.
There are so many lovely ways to decorate your wedding venue using laurel leaf and green wreath details. You could use an oversized wreath as a backdrop for your wedding ceremony space, cake table or for a DIY photo-booth. Hanging installations are still a huge hit, and a greenery-inspired centrepiece will look amazing above your wedding guest tables – not to mention the extra space it offers!
Laurel leafs and wreaths can also be used to decorate the end of your aisle pews or as boho-inspired chair covers for your wedding breakfast. Why not add an array of silk ribbons to the wreaths for an extra pretty touch? Opt for ribbons that match your colour palette and it’ll help to tie your theme in together. You can also use smaller wreaths as wedding favours on your place settings – simply attach a ribbon and luggage tag with the name of each guest on.

If you’re dreaming of a romantic wedding getaway car, swap traditional tin cans with a large greenery wreath teamed with colourful ribbons. It will look incredible as you drive off as newlyweds, and just imagine those gorgeous wedding photographs!
Glitzy Secrets have a stunning collection of crystal and diamante wedding side tiaras and jewellery, and I think their Vintage Wreath or Silver Goddess tiara will add the perfect amount of sparkle to your aisle style. If you want to channel your inner boho, why not rock a greenery hair crown with lots of wild foliage?
Your flower-girls would look divine carrying small wreaths down the aisle as a fab alternative to traditional flower-girl accessories! If you fancy something a little different to bridesmaid bouquets, consider having laurel leafs or bouquets made out of lots of greenery and foliage.
Laurel leaf and wreath details create an envy-inducing wedding theme that’s feminine, elegant and oh-so-gorgeous!
