Plant Wedding Decor•
Posted on October 12 2023
Greet your guests with the theme of plants straight away with plants lined up down the aisle or place them near your welcome area to make it feel warm and inviting. It will help you set the tone immediately. You want to create the same feeling like when you walk into someone's home, if there are plants around you, you feel welcomed and the surrounds feel fresh. Whether you are getting married outdoors or indoors it will help you tie in the natural surroundings too.
Plants look great grouped together to create more interest. Here I have popped a selection of grasses and ferns in some vintage wooden crates to help bring the ribbon table plan alive. The lush greenery really helps add interest and a vibe and would feel empty without them there.
Plants look amazing on the tables in either terracotta pots or coloured plant pots of your choice, depending on the look you are going for. You could use any small house plants such as succulents, cactus's or even herbs to help you decorate. There is something more earthy and natural you receive from using plants, so if this is the vibe you are going for, you will really love this type of look.
This next idea you will love as it's a total game changer!
Indoor and outdoor plants don't just have to be used as a whole, so remembering that you can snip the leaves off of the plants to help you create a different look in bud vases for example, will give you more exciting options to be creative. I use lots of plants and grasses in my garden to get playful and create a different look with the greenery I have at my finger tips.
If you are going for a strong theme and you want everything to tie in with the botanical look you may want to add them in some way to the smaller details, such as your napkins.You can get hold of patterned napkins in botanical designs to help you bring more life onto your plates, like I have done below.
Another way of tying in your plant theme is to incorporate them in your stationery. Using designs with leaves on to give a botanical look can be use to set the tone with invitations to guests, or to and add fun to menus and place cards. It helps you achieve a cohesive theme throughout your whole design.

Using plant leaves is also another fantastic way to style your space. This is where tropical leaves like tree ferns and fan palms really come into their own as there are great from making structural pieces.
As well as the main areas of your venue, you can also add plants to your display areas, you may be having some signage that needs something extra to liven it up or your may need some decor for an empty corner. Tall plants work particularly well for this scenario or popping a few at different heights will add interest.
