It almost feels sacrilegious to say this…

Foliage might just be our new favourite kind of flower.

We know, we were taken aback too.

But it’s organic, rustic, and oh-so-chic.

From flowing ivy to laurel adornments, springs of rosemary to spikes of eucalyptus, foliage not only adds a lush factor to your wedding, but it’s a cost efficient way to beef up the botanicals and spread out your flower budget.

From centre pieces and chair decor, to foliage crowns and full on leafy bouquets, step aside anemones, and turn away tulips: foliage is the new flower.

Be inspired for your own wedding with all kinds of lovely leaves…

Aren’t they so fabulous? I think they look really full and luxurious, and so much more budget-friendly than an abundance of blooms.
