Fill my heart with song and let me sing forevermore. You are all I long for, all I worship and adore… Us speaking to these fabulous ideas for using dried grasses in wedding decor? Or Frank Sinatra? Okay technically the answer is B, but we can’t echo his sentiments any more when it comes to this texture-forward wedding trend that is on the rise for all the right reasons.
While we will always have a soft spot for lush, gardenesque blooms that evoke soft, poetic and romantic feelings from winding aisle to flourishing pillars, there’s just something about dried grasses in wedding decor that feels multi-dimensional and design rich. We love the way it volumizes any space and directs the eye to other textural elements in serioulsy intentional way. We love how natural it feels, celebrating Mother Earth in its most raw, authentic form. And I suppose we love the cost effectiveness of this approach to floral design too.
Don’t be fooled – this is still floral artistry at its finest and takes enormous skill to pull off, despite how effortless it may look. So while it may not require as much of a budget line item as a rose-packed flower wall per-say, you’ll still need to take into account the intricate labor that goes into creations like this. All that being said, dried grass wedding decor is a true art form, and we are beyond excited to share some of our favorite looks from the past year with you today!
You’ve gotta love the floral designers + tastemakers that have brought these concepts the forefront of the wedding scene lately. And didn’t rely on pampas grass to do so! While we love pampas grass in weddings as much as the next person, it’s fabulous to see a fresh spin on the dried grass wedding trend. The skills these designers have honed to bring us this beauty is beyond comprehension and we certainly hope to see more couples embracing the au naturale floral approach to their weddings now and forevermore!
