There’s something about a nature inspired wedding that makes us simply swoon. The rich green colors and the fresh flowers make a beautiful backdrop to exchange vows. Whether it’s an eco-friendly wedding or a lovebirds theme, the beautiful combination of growing greenery and rustic charm make for great wedding decorations. Which brings us to today’s absolutely awesome trend: moss. It sounds messy and complicated but there is something to the beautiful green plant that is really growing on us.
You can transform almost any decoration into a growing piece of art using moss. With a dab of glue you can create an outdoor garden for your wedding reception table. Wooden block letters can be covered in moss, centerpieces can be filled with decorative moss balls, and driftwood can be accented with moss driftwood branches. Create the ultimate nature inspired centerpiece by combining driftwood, moss and wildflowers for over the top greenery.
As a plus, decorative moss can last for years, so you can incorporate your wedding décor into your home décor. Small garden vases filled with moss can be small growing wedding favors for your guests to take home. Guests will be able to enjoy the wedding favors for years to come, especially if you use decorative glass vases. Another great moss wedding favor: picture frames. Decorate place card frames with moss for an escort card table that will have your guests green with envy. If the thought of gluing two hundred photo frames makes you a little queasy, stick with something simple: an escort card table lined with moss. Then add a personalized place card tag for each guest. The unique presentation will match your driftwood centerpieces and create a uniform theme.
