How To Decorate Your Wedding Without Flowers

Décor & Flowers

It’s ironic that it’s the middle of Spring and we’re talking about how to decorate your wedding without flowers. The reality is that flowers aren’t for everyone – and that’s ok! In fact, our editor had zero flowers at her wedding and instead, opted for mini potted trees which served as centrepieces and wedding favours.

So, want to know how to decorate your wedding without flowers? We think these ideas are pretty clever!


Fresh herbs

Eco-friendly couples will love this one! Put potted herbs on the table as centrepieces and allow guests to take them home as wedding favours. They look and smell beautiful – win win!

Paper flowers

Looking to incorporate a vintage or retro vibe into your wedding decor? Grab paper from old books or sheet music and turn them into pretty paper flowers.




Fresh vegetables add gorgeous colour and textures to the wedding table decor! A bonus: guests can snack on them during the wedding too.

Edible and beautiful! You could incorporate pretty citrus and other colourful fruits into your centrepieces. Even better if you’re after a tropical theme.

Add a statement to your wedding decor with sculptures – large or small! You’ll save money by renting sculptures and you’ll save time with setting them up too.

Potted plants

Fill your table with pretty potted plants and allow your guests to take them home afterwards!



Seaside elements

Planning a nautical wedding? How about using large sea shells and pieces of coral! You could also include pieces of driftwood.



Fresh greens

Vases of your favourite greenery will make your venue sing!

All about the lighting

Just because you’re not having flowers, doesn’t mean you can’t embrace the romance of good lighting. We love lots of candles to create a cosy atmosphere.
