Monday Mood Board: Botanical Wedding Inspiration
Morning everyone, how was your weekend? To banish away those Monday Morning blues we have an extra pretty post today, filled with one of our most favourite things, botanics. I think we’re all craving some in this sizzling summer weather!
If there were one style or theme that always feels like a perfect fit for a wedding, it would be botanical. Flowers, styling and weddings are a match made in heaven so, in today’s mood board we are bringing forth this refreshing take, showing just how greenery marries perfectly together for your summer time affair.
So, sit back with a cuppa’ in the sun as you feast your eyes on todays dose of wedding loveliness.

Flower Design & Styling
A botanical theme is both sophisticated and delicate. This married with lush styling, the dress of dreams and trailing blooms can really make a stunning theme. Whether you are looking for a winter wedding and want to have it in a grand venue surrounded by candelabra with giant fern styling. Or a summer wedding in an Orangery, surrounded by greenery with the sun casting shadows through the leaves.
A venue with a neutral rustic feel to it would also be great as it can work as a blank canvas, go as minimal or as extravagant as you would like! A soft neutral colour scheme can be the perfect complement to the surrounding blooms, styling and expanses of your venues grounds.
A botanical wedding theme would also be absolute perfect for a destination wedding, the freshness of green florals, the scent of fresh herbs mixed with an ivory or white palette, would make for a spectacular colour scheme.
If you’re feeling brave, mix up your colour palette of the colour green. Incorporate different shades and tones for an opulent chic look. Use large leaves of foliage, perhaps ferns and rows of Ivy for banqueting tables. We find that using the colour with neutral wooden furniture and whites just works wonderfully. If you are seeking that elegant look, then this is 100% the way to go.
Pops of pale pink will add a romantic feel whereas white will add more elegance. If you’re feeling the tropical vibe, then scatter some limes and lemons into your greenery filled displays for a hint of colour and zest.

At The Wedding Affair we adore Jenny Packham’s bridal gowns and think they would pair dreamily with a greenery inspired and botanic filled affair.
The soft hues ranging from dusty pinks to soft champagnes would look so beautiful married with the colour and her whole collection of dresses are just so simply elegant; often adorned with delicate embellishments, lace and jewels we are struggling to think of what there isn’t to love.
Pair with a delicate pair of heels, droplet earnings and a leafy headpiece or crown to complete your sublime bridal look.

We couldn’t forget the details either: for this theme, you wedding cake would look gorgeous in a simple ivory or champagne colour complete with iced foliage, or even real foliage. Our favourite elements of this theme is the ‘less is more’ look and we feel that a cake looking this gorgeous will make the perfect centrepiece. So, forgo the fuss and opt for an oh-so elegant cake.
Stationery is a must. Match the theme with simple clean cut colours with a little pop of pastel. Complete the look of your day with matching name tags, order or service and a place setting map for your guests.
And, for the brides bouquet? A wild, unstructured yet refined combination. Create the perfect bridal bouquet with lush blooms and trailing vines… why not add a pop of colour to your colour scheme and mix in shades of blush or white? Tied together with a ribbon will complete the look and add a touch of femininity and romance too.
