Recent trends in flowers for weddings and parties have been leaning more towards clean lines and very little, if any, greenery. While that look can be very beautiful and classic, here is an example of how greenery can be used in fun, unique, and interesting ways.
Laura and Robert were married in September at UMSL Provincial Chapel. Laura LOVED texture and greenery. She wanted all of her bouquets to be lush with greenery and minimalistic on the flower blooms.
The bridal bouquet included white dendrobium orchids, white lilies, white freesia, and waxflower filler. The different types of greenery really made the whole bouquet comes together. We used variegated pitt, fern, and variegated hosta leaves. The brown, curly accents, or monkey tail, really added even more interest to the already texture rich bouquet.
The bridesmaids’ bouquets were very similar to the bridal bouquet. They used lots of mixed greenery and monkey tail as well as minimal white flowers.
At the church, different types of greenery, including variegated hosta leaves and Italian ruscus, were clustered to decorate the pews.
The reception was held at Greenbriar Hills Country Club. All the table decorations were rustic-looking urns filled to the brim with lush greens of all shapes and textures, with a little white filler accent.
The urns included several different types of greenery–variegated pitt and hosta leaves, Italian ruscus, magnolia leaves, fern, lily grass, and hanging amaranthus. More monkey tail and lotus pods were used to bring in brown accents.
We had a lot of fun designing the pieces for this wedding! It was so great to incorporate greenery in unusual ways to give the whole wedding a very earthy and gardeny look!
Best wishes to Laura and Robert!!
