When we heard that some of the most creative and talented minds in the wedding industry were gathering in one of the most beautiful places in America, we were thrilled and excited to see what they’d come up with! We just knew we’d get some amazing and creative content when Ginny Au, Sarah Winward, and Rylee Hitchner all teamed up on a trip to Sundance, Utah. These wonderfully gifted women all gathered together and sent us some of their beautiful work on their return!
First, we featured their DIY Wild Vine Arch, which is the perfect backdrop for any bride looking for a simple, yet stunning alternative to a traditional wedding arbor. And we’re excited to share a little more content from our favorite lovely ladies today. You can easily take their ideas and execute them for your own wedding. Not everyone thinks that flowers are an important part of their wedding day, so this foraged greenery decor is the perfect alternative for a laid back bride looking for a truly organic and minimally styled wedding.
Take beautiful greenery, which you can either forage or order from a wholesaler (we recommend jasmine, passion vine, ivy..etc.) and place it around your wedding to give you the look you’re aiming for. The key is to forage material that will stand up well outside of water, so choose vines that have a thicker stem and hardy leaves. Once you have your material, it’s simple to take your wild vines and form them into a wreath by simply laying them out on the ground and using a few pieces of wire to keep them in place. Take your scraps and place them around your wedding in bottles and maybe even just lay it on the table for a simple, yet elegant look!
