A Modern, Eco-Friendly Garden Wedding

Kailee Palileo 30 May 2023

One of this year's hottest trends includes sustainability, which means more couples are getting creative when it comes to planning their eco-friendly wedding.

Deciding on a venue can set the theme and style of a wedding. Brannon and Seth decided to celebrate their ceremony and reception at Lairmont Manor, whose gardens provided a beautiful, natural backdrop.

"I wanted a lower waste wedding. Obviously this is hard to figure out when buying flowers, gowns, decor, people coming into visit the list goes on, but I was determined clever solutions were possible," Brannon said.

Reusing their wedding flowers was one of the ways the couple was able to make their important day eco-friendly. They were able to reuse their ceremony flowers by transitioning them into reception decor; reusing arrangements can cut down on the number of flowers you’ll end up needing. Reusing your bridesmaids' bouquets as centerpieces is another great eco-friendly idea!

DIY Pink Wedding Bouquets

These pink, monochromatic bouquets were made up of hypericum berries, roses, spray roses and astilbe. Going for a monochromatic color palette allowed the bride to be more flexible with the arrangements she DIY'd.

The Bridal Team

Inspired by her wedding flowers, the bride chose beautiful English rose velvet dresses for her bridesmaids and flowy, pale green dresses for the rose petal ladies.

Ceremony Floral Arrangements

Each chair was beautifully decorated with small arrangements made up of spray roses, greenery and decorative ribbon.

Free-Standing Centerpieces

When it came to the centerpieces, the couple wanted to stay as eco-conscious as possible so they decided to create these free-standing, hand-tied bouquets for every table! To seal in moisture, she used Crowning Glory wax sealer all over the blooms. After the wedding, her guests were able to take these centerpieces home.

Romantic Sweetheart Table

The sweetheart table was beautifully decorated using hardy greenery, long-lasting carnations and other beautiful flowers like roses and heather. Notice how the hanging floral display compliments the centerpiece and runner perfectly.
