I love foliage and I especially love foliage at a wedding. Foliage has become just as big as flowers in recent years and it seems to be featuring more and more in modern & rustic wedding décor. I have seen some amazing foliage installations, by florists, in the last year. From a full on woodland entrance, which had the effect of walking down a tree lined street with overhanging branches, to a ceiling hanging foliage installation like the one below! They were both amazing but if your budget can’t stretch to something like this by a professional, foliage is still a great way to decorate. It can really make a room come to life and it is also a great way to stretch your flower budget. Have a look at the Gallery section to see how foliage was used in some previous weddings.
The table above is also using foliage as a runner and I love this look. How about sprigs of herbs for your place settings or as table ends? A display of potted herbs clustered together works beautifully and smells so good! Leaves can be used as place cards for your guests, cheap and effective.
Foliage backdrops are so popular and it’s easy to see why. I have 2 faux foliage backdrops in the Props section but I like to add real foliage to them too.
It is also a very effective way to make displays come to life with a few bits of foliage placed in bottles, vases or tied to hoops and ladders. The possibilities are endless, and it is definitely a favourite of mine.
