7 Best Types of Greenery for Weddings

love the fact that many couples are choosing to incorporate more greenery and foliage into their wedding decor. While flowers and other types of blooms are stunning, there’s a unique beauty and simplicity of focusing more on greens in bouquets, boutonnieres and centerpieces.

If you want to have a non-traditional look to the pieces of nature you bring in to your wedding, consider the following greenery and foliage options. And bonus: you may even save some money by going all green and skipping those big blooms!

Silver Dollar Eucalyptus

For a soft, silvery green color, eucalyptus is a fantastic choice for your wedding. Not only does it go well with other pastel colored flowers, it’s also a beautiful option on its own!

Monstera Leaves

Having a tropical themed wedding? Monstera leaves might be the perfect way to incorporate a tropical feel no matter where your wedding ceremony takes place. For a little inspiration, you might even want to head over to see Hunter and Brittany’s boho tropical wedding with a monstera leaf backdrop!


Want something with a lot of texture? Use ferns! These plants are great for a variety of uses, from tablescapes and reception settings to bouquets and backdrops. And golden ferns are a gorgeous option for a fall wedding bouquet!

Bay Leaves

Bay leaves are small enough to avoid looking over-the-top, but large enough to have a beautiful impact on nearly any bouquet. They also have a lovely scent as well!


These little plants are becoming extremely popular — and for good reason! They are easy to use in a myriad of ways on your wedding day, and their color variations bring a unique look that everyone will love.


Whether you want to make a statement on your long dinner tables or you are dreaming of something truly beautiful winding down a staircase, fresh garland is the perfect choice.


If you want a down-to-earth vibe, consider having potted herbs as your centerpieces. You might even consider giving them out as party favors for your guests to take home at the end of the night!

Highly recommend Roots Floral Design - absolutely beautiful!

“Kaytee is an absolute GEM! She has so much passion and care for what she does, that you feel like she's a friend more than a vendor. She walks you through each step of the floral process with organization, examples, cost, and detail -- all things that make my detail-oriented heart happy. The end result far exceeded anything we could have hoped for or imagined. ALL. THE. GREENERY. Future brides, run, don't walk to Roots for your wedding. From start to finish, she took care of every single floral need to make our day positively beautiful.”

-Laura, Summer 2019 Wedding


"Kaytee became so much more than a vendor for us. The first time I met her I felt as though I met a long lost friend. She was the very first vendor I chose for the wedding (even before the venue) and she lived up to all my expectations and went above and beyond.  Each time I met with her I felt confident that she completely comprehended my wants and would fashion them into something that looks put together, yet natural. The day-of she silently transformed a bland rustic space into an enchanting, romantic barn. I couldn't have asked for anything more beautiful or unique."

-Grace, Spring 2019 Wedding


"Kaytee was so great to work with!!! I provided her with some floral inspirations from Pinterest and Instagram but gave her a lot of free rein coming up with the flowers for our wedding and she went above and beyond expectations. Our photographer was obsessed with all the bouquets and we got so many great pictures of them! She did such a good job making my smaller budget work to make high impact arrangements. She's also the sweetest person to be around!"
