Few weddings are quite as stunning as a botanical wedding theme – it achieves the perfect balance of simple and stylish.
And it’s little wonder why botanical weddings are one of the biggest trends in the bridal world right now – fresh whites, wood and decorative vines are a gorgeous combination (with a smattering of rose gold for good measure!)
If you’re considering a botanical theme for your own wedding, read on to find out how to plan the perfect botanical wedding with our stunning Beautiful Botanics wedding supplies.
How to plan a beautiful botanical wedding
The colour scheme
For the most stylish look, keep the colour scheme for your botanical wedding very simple and stick to these core components:
- Fresh whites
- Decorative vines
- Rose gold
As for your venue decorations, mix and match a selection of white, wooden and rose gold decorations with decorative vines. Try not to go too over the top – simplicity is key for a successful botanical wedding.
Here’s a selection of our favourite decorations from our Beautiful Botanics wedding range for inspiration.
Vines are top of this list for a botanical wedding theme – hang them along the walls or over your tables for an instant transformation. These faux vine decorations would be perfect.
Rose gold bunting
Rose gold garlands
These rose gold garlands add a modern touch to your botanical wedding decorations. Don’t add too many – rather just enough to break up the green and white.
Another wedding trend for 2017 is confetti balloons. And these white confetti balloons would look gorgeous as standalone decorations around your venue.
White heart balloons
These white heart balloons would also look super stylish. They’re rather large so don’t overdo it with too many – one heart balloon next to your wedding cake would look stunning.
White paper fans
Who doesn’t love a paper fan or two? A couple of these white paper fans would look lovely hung from the ceiling.
Once you’ve chosen some decorations for your venue, it’s time to think about dressing your tables. Here’s a selection of our favourite wedding table accessories from our Beautiful Botanics range.
Wine bottle table numbers
Botanics is a rather rustic wedding theme so we love the idea of using old wine bottles as table numbers. Simply pop some plants and these table number tags (fastened on with twine) on each bottle for a beautiful rustic look.
Mason jars are the epitome of rustic style – even if you buy them new, specially for the occasion. 😉
Fill each jar with these string lights to help create some lovely mood lighting for later in the night.
Wooden table numbers
The odd wooden decoration will add to the lovely natural look of your botanical wedding. These wooden table numbers would be lovely.
Simple place settings
As for your place settings, keep these simple with fresh white plates and napkins and decorate them with twine, a fresh tree cutting and these beautiful rose gold name tags.
Confetti is a wedding staple but this wooden Mr & Mrs confetti steps it up a notch and makes your table confetti at your botanical wedding much more stylish.
Wooden heart confetti
How about mixing and matching Mr & Mrs confetti with this lovely wooden heart confetti?
‘Best Day Ever’ napkins
It’s always a good idea to have some paper napkins but there’s no reason why they can’t match the rest of your botanical wedding decorations. How about these white and rose gold ‘best day ever’ napkins?
Jam jar glasses
Sticking with the rustic theme, how about serving some of your drinks in these jam jar glasses?
Wooden heart tags
You could even decorate your drinks and party favours with these cute wooden heart tags!
Photos of your big day are bound to be posted on Instagram, so why not pop an Instagram sign on each table to let your guests know which hashtag to use?
The wedding cake
Next up… the perfect wedding cake for your botanical wedding!
We love this plain white cake that’s been decorated with vines. And this rose gold table runner is just the thing to make it look extra special while it’s on display.
This wooden Mr & Mrs cake topper would be a lovely way to decorate a plain white wedding cake, and tie it into your botanical theme.
Or how about going ‘modern’ and not having a wedding cake at all? This doughnut wedding cake would go down a treat!
Time for some finishing touches on your beautiful botanical wedding! Here are a couple of our favourite ideas.
And if you’ve got an old picture frame lying around the house, you can turn it into a lovely prop by taking the glass out and hanging your confetti cones on some twine.
We’re a big fan of photo props and they’re a wedding trend that doesn’t seem to be dying down. Hand these Beautiful Botanics photo props out to your guests and take some silly snaps as a memory of your big day!
It’s important to have plenty of mementos of your big day, so leave a couple of these advice cards on the tables for your guests to fill in. They’ll make a lovely keepsake to look back on in years to come!
These advice coasters are also rather cute! Pop one under each glass for your guests to fill in during the wedding reception.
For something really different, how about this jenga guestbook? Ask each guest to sign a piece as a memory of your wedding day!
