Lush and lavish.. Your Lush Greenery Wedding Design Guide..
We’d say a theme inspired by Mother Nature will not easily go out of style. Look for the right combination of greens, pretty blooms, plus wood and gold elements, and you’ll have a picture-perfect design for your event.
If you’re planning/organizing an intimate (micro!) wedding (backyard!), engagement dinner, or a special get-together, let us help you create a dreamy, lush greenery wedding design and guide you through table/decor set-up. Most products/inspiration shown here are available online! This means you might not even need to head out to put this design together!
Lush Greenery Wedding Design Guide. Here’s how you can do it:
To start, we chose to use wooden furniture to keep with the natural feel mostly. If you’ve been around here, you know a few of our favorite table setting details are gold-rimmed chargers & glassware, as well as gold flatware.
These classic gold pieces will elevate any setting. Having them handy will always give your event that extra “glam,” not too much, just enough to give out that regal feeling, even for this lush greenery design.
A banana leaf with a beautifully handwritten menu adds a unique and personal touch. While custom-made roses were used as place cards, guests’ names and a short “thank you” note were written on the rose leaves. Lush greenery, right?
Wedding favors are Sugarfina candies placed in small clear boxes and placed on the table for guests to bring home.
We used lots of greeneries (salal, Italian Ruscus, Queen Anne’s lace) for the centerpieces; we added white roses, white dendro orchids, and white waxflower inserts. We used vases of varying heights. You can also opt to go easy on using flowers and go for an all lush greenery wedding design arrangement, especially if you’re working on a budget.
A white napkin cuts through the gold and the wooden elements, which creates a more balanced effect.
An intricate yet DIY, lush, greenery wedding design is achievable. You have to have a touch of inspiration, a dose of creativity, and the right items to pull it off.
If you’re looking to re-create this wonderful theme for your next celebration, we have rounded, easy creative tips that you can use to execute this seamlessly using our wedding design guide.

LINEN / WOODEN TABLE: Here’s a hack, use linen that has a wooden print. We’ve included a curtain that has a wooden finish. Just ensure to tuck in the part where the rod goes, and you should be good! NO ONE WILL KNOW! (unless you tell them!)
CENTERPIECES: You can use pre-made faux arrangements. Suppose you’re still opting for lush fresh greeneries, order bunches of greenery from your local flower shop. If you’d like to DIY it, you’ll need to stick to groupings. You can buy vases of varying heights and let the greeneries flow freely. (Here’s an inspo from Restoration Hardware.)
Another hack is that you can use potted plants (real or faux!), and you can use wooden boxes to raise them and have varying heights.
MENU and PLACE CARDS: If you’re still practicing your calligraphy skills, a simple hack is to print out the text you want to include in a regular paper and trace over (careful not to make holes) the leaves. Lift the paper, and you’ll have a guide to write the names and menu using a white ink pen.
HACK ALERT: get a silk potted banana plant (see link); you need to cut off the leaves and get on with your calligraphy (and tracing!) skills!
RE-PURPOSING: If you chose to buy products (especially for a micro wedding!), select products that you can easily store and that you can also bust out on your next event. Products that can work easily with other designs/themes.
This lush greenery wedding design is one of our favorite designs! Just altogether classic, yet with some details, it can be easily modernized.
**Our main goal is to share designs, ideas, product choices, and resources that will lessen the working hours (for research, going out shopping, picking up products and set-up) while still keeping it within the budget. These ideas closely (not exactly!) resemble a variation of a theme or design. The execution of your event using our guides will depend on how open you are to alternatives, other options, and unexpected products/design/ideas.**
