7 Best Types of Greenery for Your Wedding

love the fact that many couples are choosing to incorporate more greenery and foliage into their wedding decor. While flowers and other types of elements 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 a nd skipping those big blooms!


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. 


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!  Plus there are so many varieties of ferns, with colours and textures to match any style.

Herb Leaves

Bay leaves (pictured) 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!  Sage, Basil, and other herb leaves add a wonderful touch and fragrance to any bouquet.


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.

Winter Greenery

If you are lucky enough to have booked your big day when there is snow on the ground, you are lucky enough to use winter greener.  Not only will this last outdoors in the sometimes chilled weather, but the smells this gives off is heavenly.


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!
