Rosemary, olive branches, parleys, jasmine leaves, succulents – there are so many incredible textures (and scents!) in greenery. Why, you don’t even have to consider flowers at all! I have fallen head over heels for bouquets using greenery as their focus. So much texture, so much amazing smell and a subtle feeling of getting back to nature.
There is something about natural greens that is almost a neutral – the bouquets of green go with every colour of the rainbow and have every hue you could imagine. If you’re not into flowers but still love that beauty of carrying something from nature than maybe a bouquet of greenery is for you.
Love warmer weather? What about olive branches? Fancy yourself a gardener with a love of cooking? Why not a bouquet of pure herbs? There are so many beautiful natural elements we have yet to really consider in wedding arrangements and greenery gives a softer, yet somehow modern look to a wedding.
To inspire you, I asked florists to send me their beautiful green bouquets and their work shows just how versatile greenery in a bouquet can be. From trailing, to tightly bound posies. Additions of a few pink or white blooms, or none at all. Herbs and sweet smelling leaves to succulents.
