Weddings, rehearsal dinners and outdoor bridal parties are all events needing decorations reflecting the essence of the wedding. This can be done with color, texture, flowers, hobby or another unique element of the wedding while using fresh greenery.
Fresh greenery is an affordable way to incorporate earthy elements and dress up the landscape, while having fun. Below on the front of the pergola hangs fresh greenery consisting of 4 plants; scotchbroom, magnolia, pink yarrow and oak leaf hydrangea.
These plants are simply tied together with twine and hung on the pergola with string and bound with pink ribbon on top.
These are great decorations for the homes where out of town guests will be staying too.
If you would like to decorate for the rehearsal dinner or before, look at the same fresh greenery 3 days after being in 90 degree whether here in Greensboro, North Carolina.
The trick is to combine different textures so there is an obvious contrast. Foliage from evergreen plants hold up quite nicely for days. The oak leaf hydrangea flower is very durable as well.
Fresh greenery for your weddings and other parties can be attached to candle holders, trees, pergolas, fences and doors.
Take inventory of the plants your family, friends and neighbors have before you plan the outdoor decorations. Iwould strongly suggest foliage from magnolias, pine, holly, scotchbroom, helleborus, lavender, osmanthus, rhododendron, ligustrum, gardenia, cypress or eleagnus.
When you have selected what plants you are going to use, incorporate elements of the wedding into them. Adding ribbon the color of the bridesmaid gowns, string seashells into the greenery for a beach theme wedding or glue craft butterflies onto them if releasing butterflies at your wedding is planned.
Fresh greenery is one element worth spending time assembling. Another idea is to have someone else put them together for you. Brides have enough on their plates.
