Greenery Inspired Wedding Theme

Add something lush and lively to your wedding theme. Just a little bit of greenery goes a long way to add a fresh and unique look. Whether it be on table runners, in bouquets, on a cake or the bride’s flower crown, greenery gives a little life to any wedding theme.

Make your wedding day a place where you both feel at home in your own beautiful style. Here are some ways to add greenery:

Finding areas to add fresh foliage is easy. Wrap ivy around draped pillars and run garland down the center of your reception tables. A favorite benefit using greenery is the affordability and how it can withstand cooler and warmer conditions. No worries about wilting arrangements!

We also love how olive leaves and lavender look so rustic and delicate on the cake. There are endless ways to incorporate greenery—even the bride gets a flower crown and bouquet that matches the big-day decor.

Go for a soft watercolor design, like this one, to introduce a romantic, outdoor wedding. The colors and fonts elegantly compliment its design and the wreath-shaped watercolor makes a subtle hint at the greenery theme.

For your ceremony and reception, use greenery in every detail to create a look that’s mesmerizing. Don’t forget you can add your style to boutonnieres and corsages in addition to the bride’s flower crown! Once you find the perfect theme that speaks to both your styles, decorate every part of your day to make it beautifully yours.

Rustic Pink Outdoor Farm Wedding in South Carolina

Today, we are elated to be sharing this classic southern-style wedding! Brooke and Steven were married on a stunning 50-acre family farm out in South Carolina. Their sweet ceremony took place alongside a serene lake, and was then accompanied by some hilarious wedding photos of the bride and groom. This rustic farm wedding is too much fun! Did we mention they even have a horse and buggy?

Steven and Brooke wanted a fun and casual atmosphere for their big day. They made sure to have some delicious home-cooked BBQ at their reception, as well as some rustic decor pieces. Brooke was most inspired by blush and gold colors, which are perfect for the summertime. Vibrant pink peonies were seen in every bouquet, and paired with whimsical bridesmaid dresses. The dance floor was a big hit that night and everyone danced to an array of great tunes, from Forever Young to Uptown Funk! These two lovebirds will be headed to Central America for their amazing honeymoon.

Blue and White Outdoor Wedding in South Carolina

Today, we are beaming with delight over this charming, rustic wedding! From the iconic Spanish Moss that grows on these timeless trees, the old wooden venue, and stunning twinkly lights strung up during the evening, we are smitten with the details Michelle and Peter picked for their big day.

These two first met, and fell in love, in dreamy Charleston. However, their sweet engagement didn’t take place in the states. During Easter Sunday while they were in England visiting Peter’s family, he took Michelle to a fun zoo in London. After nervously making laps around the park, Michelle finally asked him what he was doing? In order not to ruin his big surprise, he quickly dropped to one knee, and asked if she’d be his wife!

Peter and Michelle’s wedding day happened at Magnolia Plantation!The beautiful array of white flower bouquets, rustic blue and white reception decorations, and fun fire pit for roasting their sweet treats, all helped make this day a memorable event.

Southern Yellow Wedding with a Rustic Theme

Today, we’re loving this vibrant yellow wedding theme! Blake and Mac held their fun, rustic wedding at the River Road and Jasmine House, near Lake Murray in South Carolina.There isn’t anything more adorable than a rustic southern wedding. The sweet details and playful charm made this summer wedding extra special.

The ceremony area has an elegant iron gazebo at the front, and a permanent doorway at the end of the aisle, making it a unique entrance for the bride and groom. This garden wedding is so serene and quaint. Blake and Mac even chose to write their favorite bible verse above the door so it would be included in their wedding memories. Rustic wedding invitations help tie-in this cohesive theme, and can be customized to fit your special day!
