As you know, I’m a sucker for wedding trends, and there’s one gorgeous floral trend that started as something niche for boho weddings, but is now popping up in luxury events, rustic celebrations, and even city bashes too.

It’s pampas grass. And it can be eclectic, romantic, beautiful, and entirely stylish.

A tall versatile grass, it adds instant texture to bouquets and backdrops, adds a retro Southwest vibe for alternative weddings, or a pretty, almost ostrich feather flutter to more classic soirees. Plus it’s the perfect alternative if you and your other half aren’t into flowers.

And I’m a little bit obsessed!

Pampas grass actually has a bit of a racy, rather than romantic, symbolism. It’s said that couples who grow pampas in their front gardens are actually swingers!

But we’re not ones for myths, we’re ones for style, and there’s something just so cool about the look and feel of pampas at a wedding.

Not only does it look good, it’s also cost effective, long lasting, a little goes a very long way and a lot can make a BIG statement.
