Do you still believe in all things green and beautiful? Sure, fresh, delicate florals will look elegant at a wedding venue, but what about the trend for natural lush greens? Lush greens are returning to wedding decor with a hint of refreshing freshness. Whether you keep them as the main element of your décor or incorporate them as a complement to the pretty flora potted plants, you can brighten up your wedding venue in an extremely fresh way. Not only important for affixing pure natural beauty, but it also lends a fresh and energetic vibe at those grand wedding receptions (especially in the summer). Eco-friendly potted plants can do so much more than just rightfully adorn your space.
Here we round up 5 unusual yet beautiful ways to introduce potted plants into your wedding decor.
1. Create a tablescape
Dare to be a little different by using potted plants in your room. If you want to uniquely decorate the surroundings of your room and balance all the elements equally, nicely touch up the middle of the tables with potted plants with brightly colored flowers. Embracing foliage as filler is a trick to creating a calming rustic touch. Mix scale and shape to nicely spice things up in a green way. Accompany these greens with mini scented candles to give a magical dimension to your place.
2. A backdrop
Backdrops are the backbone of your wedding! Not only do they work great for creating lifelong photographs and memories, but they can also shape the overall decor by adding visual volume to it. The key to adding a new dimension to your backdrop is to take a multi-pocketed jali and add potted plants of the same size to it. You can mix and match varieties and complement the greens with LED lights to create a surreal look. It not only livens up your wedding photos but also adds a touch of contemporary uniqueness.
3. Line the driveway
Covering the wedding aisle with potted plants is yet another way to bring a new dimension to your decor while incorporating a refreshing splash of color and unusual texture into the ceremony space. Play around with the type of planters to secure endless interest. Think of pretty pots and different types of fresh herbs to give a typical summer-spring vibe.
4. The suspended ceiling
The trend for drapes and floral beauty is long gone! These days, people are turning to the norm of fairy lights, foliage, and mirrored floors to add a touch of whimsy to their wedding decor. To liven up the entryway, choose plastered jaali on the roof and hang potted plants in random spots for a soothing greenhouse touch. Accompany the space between plants with yellow bulbs for much-needed shine and glow.
5. Introduce an energizing touch to the mandap
Shape an exceptional mandap in an ecological way with lush vegetation all around. You can cover the pillars with potted greens and put the amalgamation of large and small potted planters here and there in every nook and cranny of the mandap for an energizing and lively touch. Make a splendid eye-catching statement by completing the space with a large chandelier.
