For the past two years, brides and grooms have been moving away from floral elements in their wedding. They have been opting for more natural, garden and organic style and incorporating more greenery in their wedding floral design. This greenery trend is also giving way to its “sister” category: grass. More specifically, pampas grass. I’m sure you’ve seen it all over the internet when you have been doing some research for your wedding flowers. More so then ever, pampas grass is the most coveted non-floral element couples are using.
Pampas grass come in many different shapes and forms and they are very versatile. They can be incorporated into wedding arches for your ceremony, great for chair decor and they make beautiful bouquets and centerpieces too. I think my favourite is designing and creating pampas bridal bouquets! I think it’s the most important and personal piece of floral in a wedding. Look how absolutely stunning pampas grass bouquets are!
I very much look forward to creating more with pampas grass. The possibilities are endless. I’m imagining some pampas grass garlands down the aisle, a pampas grass semi-circle ground installation, pampas centerpieces, pampas cake toppers, pampas anything and everything!
Here are some inspiration for you! First set is a few snapshots from a destination wedding I was so honoured to be a part of in Mexico!

Back in Montreal I participated in a boho wedding shoot. So dreamy, isn’t it?

This pre-wedding photoshoot is one for the books. I adore the boho bridal crown, don’t you? It goes so well with the boho pampas theme!

Not only are pampas grass popular for weddings, people are finding other reasons to incorporate them into other celebrations such as baby showers and bridal showers. They are great alone or used with other floral elements, and even non-floral elements such as balloons. How stunning is this boy baby shower backdrop setup? What a beautiful photobooth idea for the guests. Pampas grass also make stunning flower arrangement to dress up your buffet table. And look at that bundle of pampas with the rattan furniture! This is a dream boho baby shower!
That’s it for all the boho pampas inspiration for now… Will you be jumping on this non-floral trend for your wedding design as well?
