Gorgeous Ways To Incorporate Greenery Into Your Wedding

  |   By Kimberly Aglipay

The greenery trend shows no signs of slowing down any time soon, and we're totally on board. Whether you use seeded eucalyptus or olive branches, gorgeous green leaves and stems are a great way to give your wedding a lush, dreamy garden vibe, without having to incorporate a ton of pricey blooms. At this point, green is practically a neutral colour at weddings, and it works with practically any theme from woodsy and rustic to modern and elegant.

We've seen tons of gorgeous ways our real wedding couples have incorporated greenery into their own celebrations -- everything from minimalist garlands to glam chandeliers covered in foliage. Here are some of our favourite ideas.
