Greenery wedding themes are popular this year where couples choose to use arrangements made completely with foliage, but you should not just limit yourself to that. Did you know that greenery is inexpensive and can help you stretch your wedding flower budget.

By incorporating more greenery in your arrangements and using less flowers, you can still have lush and beautiful displays without the extra expense of ones that use three or four times the number of flowers in them.


If you plan it right you may not even have to spend that much for example:

  1. You could have an evening outdoor spring wedding where you can take advantage of mother nature and the flourishing surrounds, twist some small twinkling lights amongst the trees and bushes and you have a magical evening venue.

  2. If you are lucky enough to have a lovely garden you could use the greenery from you garden and it will cost you nothing.

Use the ideas below to start planning your greenery wedding theme today.
