Oftentimes the most elegant inspiration comes from nature, and leaves are no exception. I saw these stunning Ziad Nakad gowns the other day and just couldn’t help myself (each one is like a fairy tale!) I had to create a glamorous leafy theme board! There are plenty of ways to incorporate leaves into your wedding, real ones or designs that are simply inspired by their shape. Use real or faux leaves to decorate your favor boxes, your invitations, your hair, the cake. Leaves are timeless. A major plus? If you’re going to decorate a ceremony arch or chair backs with all leaves, it will be much less expensive than if you covered them in flowers!
