Beautiful flowers will always be in style, but if you're looking for wedding arrangements that are more unusual and unexpected, consider going green. Using all greenery in your wedding decorations is a seriously cool and trendy alternative to fresh flowers. Plus, brides on a budget should take note: greenery and colorful foliage leaves will always be much more affordable than fresh flowers. So if you're looking to save on your wedding decorations, going heavy on the greenery is a major cost-savings move.

These days, we're seeing lush foliage without the flowers take center stage not only in ceremony backdrops and reception table centerpieces but also in wedding bouquets. It's a gorgeous option for both the bride and her bridesmaids to carry down the aisle, and since greenery and foliage come in so many beautiful shades, textures, and interesting shapes, there is so much room for creativity. Play with scale and opt for an oversize greenery bouquet if you want to really turn heads—you could even ask your florist to add elegant, wispy trails and tendrils cascading from the sides for a more romantic look. Or, opt for a simple, all-foliage posy containing just one or two types of greenery if your style is more elegant and understated.

If you're concerned that foliage will just blend into the backdrop, rest assured: A verdant, all-greenery bouquet is guaranteed to turn guests' heads and have a major impact. Not to mention the fact that the deep, emerald-green hues will beautifully pop against a crisp white wedding dress.

To get you inspired, we've rounded up some of the prettiest all-greenery bridal bouquets we could find.

If you prefer a loose, organically shaped bouquet, you'll love this cascading arrangement. The free-flowing shape feels unfussy and totally fresh, and the deep-green hues are a dramatic juxtaposition against her creamy white wedding dress.
