I want a bouquet with a lot of greenery...

Bouquets featuring greenery are a growing trend in wedding florals. Actually, not just in bouquets but for the entire look. Perhaps it surfaced because green is the new Pantone 2017 color of the year. Sometimes it's touted as a budget friendly way to provide the maximum floral-ness to the day. It is a beautiful look. But it does require a skillful hand and sometimes a lot of greenery to pull it off with class, which challenges the premise that it is budget friendly.

Here are some beautiful examples of this trend. This style of bouquet can be described as a natural "just picked" look, gathered and a little wild. What makes them so striking is the variety of greenery used. The different textures give them interest. In the bouquets below, there are several textures and varieties of eucalyptus. The blossoms are quite secondary. As for the arch dressed with hops, the scale and generous use of this distinctive foliage makes it a standout!
