Green flowers for a wedding can be a challenge because the most popular flower choices are colors that contrast from green flower stems and green bouquet fillers. If your wedding theme or color choices include green, then green wedding flowers would be a likely choice for your wedding decor. Green flowers for a wedding do not have to include the unnatural, neon-dyed carnations that we usually see when searching green flowers. There are luckily several beautiful, natural options out there if you are willing to get a little creative!
Few flowers present such understated elegance as an orchid. Even if presented as the only flower on your reception tables, the orchid would hold its own as a beautiful focal piece. Pair with crystal pieces for an upscale look, or offset with floating candles in your accent colors. This particular orchid is on the lighter side of the green scale and is reminiscent of a green apple in color. It would look gorgeous paired with pinks, oranges, yellows or navy blue.

Succulents are becoming a huge hit with brides who are looking to for a low-maintenance, rustic, muted look in their wedding. Succulents are generally desert-dwelling plants and require very little upkeep. They come in a variety of colors — muted greens, pinks and yellows, and they are being snapped-up by brides who are going with rustic, vintage and elegant themes. They are also a great option for the allergy-prone bride and/or groom, and can be paired beautifully with other unexpected adornments, such as baby’s breath and lace, as shown here.
