What's Up Weddings

Trend Watch: Greenery

Move aside bright blooms! Luscious greens are the newest trend in wedding florals and we are loving it! Affordable, available in any season, and impeccably classic, the use of greenery in your wedding décor will add natural texture and effortless drama without breaking the budget.

It’s easy to start with a canvas of foliage and tweak the look to meet your intended look and feel. If you are looking for something more modern and sophisticated, keep the greens trimmed, tight, and geometric (think boxwoods). If you are hoping for a whimsical, foraged look, add some tree branches, berries, and wildflowers to the mix.

You won’t go wrong with an understated, simple theme of greens and white flowers. Sprinkle black and gold elements throughout, strategically place some romantic candles and you’ll be all set.
