The eucalyptus is also known as Tasmanian blue gum. It is a native evergreen broadleaf tree native in south-eastern Australia. And lately, it has been making bold statements in weddings despite its simplicity. This leaf will surprise you with its variety. These include seeded, silver dollar, true blue and gunny eucalyptus.
What Does Eucalyptus Mean at A Wedding?
A factor that makes eucalyptus a favourite wedding item is its symbolism. The Indigenous peoples of Australia consider eucalyptus as a holy tree. They believe this tree has a purifying and healing effect. It is a protection from any negative energy.
It is very fitting for a couple who found purification and healing in each other. After all the struggles they experienced during singlehood, they found peace. And also, they vow to protect each other forever.
Is Eucalyptus Cheap for Weddings?
Another factor that makes eucalyptus a good bet for a wedding is its affordability. Eucalyptus is cheaper than wedding flowers and it’s easier to DIY eucalyptus decorations. Its availability and accessibility year-round help it maintain a fair price.
We prepared 11 eucalyptus wedding ideas for a fresh and affordable wedding.
Eucalyptus Wedding Invitation
Make a formal announcement to your near and dear ones that you are getting married. With the help of a eucalyptus vellum wrap invitation, express your intent to invite them. Seal the pre-scored wedding invitation with gold wax and add ribbon for added elegance. If you want, you can use a personal embellishment instead. This invitation will also help set the mood and vibe of your eucalyptus wedding theme.
Eucalyptus Wedding Table Decoration
Excite your guests' appetite by tickling their sense of sight. Clothe long wooden tables with clean white linen. Then, line the guest tables with a runner made from sage green eucalyptus, white roses, and candles. You can expect an air of joyful elegance at your eucalyptus-themed rustic wedding.
Eucalyptus Wedding Centrepieces
We enjoy using eucalyptus as part of floral arrangements. But this sage green plant can still look stunning with other greenery.
Mark the guest tables with a eucalyptus wedding centrepiece. Do this by creating a puffy wreath of eucalyptus and other greens. Some foliage you can add are bells of Ireland, zinnia, and sweet annie. Then, slip a white rose or two to calm the explosion of green. In the middle, place a lamp that houses a candle. You can also insert a gold table number to complete the look.
Eucalyptus Wedding Decoration
Eucalyptus works well with non-flowers like pampas grass. If you aren't familiar with the term, this grass looks like a beige or cream-coloured feather. We bet you saw this already since it is a popular addition to rustic and boho weddings. Combine green eucalyptus and light brown pampas grass. Place them along the wedding aisle.
Eucalyptus Escort Cards
Sustainable weddings have been rising in the past years. And using eucalyptus leaves as escort cards will help you join this green trend. Instead of writing guests' names on stationery, write them onto single eucalyptus leaves. In this way, you can create a Pinterest-worthy eucalyptus wedding guestbook on your big day.
Eucalyptus Wedding Bouquet
Flowers are a staple at weddings but can get pricey and inaccessible when not in season. So, if you want an affordable yet creative choice for your bridal bouquet, use more greens than flowers.
Do this by combining green eucalyptus, white and light brown roses, and pampas grass. Add other green foliage and brown ferns for added volume and colour.
Eucalyptus Wedding Brooch
A brooch is a statement piece of jewellery usually made of silver or gold. But you can ditch the entire metallic accessory and use something organic. Gather a few leaves of eucalyptus, make sure the stems are still intact, and another greenery. Tie them together with a light brown floral wire. You can now attach it to your groom or groomsman suit.
Eucalyptus Hair Accessories
The number of ways you can use eucalyptus at your wedding never stops. Add it to your bridal or bridesmaid hairstyle for an ethereal and fairy-like look. For your hairstyle, gather the upper half of your hair and tie it with a black and thin ponytail. Comb the remaining half down, letting the air touch it. For the final touch, add a few leaves of eucalyptus for a bohemian look.
Eucalyptus Wedding Garland
You do not need complicated table centrepieces to make a bold statement. A thick table runner of eucalyptus with candles and flowers across the table is more than enough. This organic decorative braid makes a lush statement making it a feast for the eyes. A eucalyptus garland can add the needed level of romance for your wedding day.
Eucalyptus Wedding Cake
Flowers are at the centre of the spotlight as wedding cake decorations. And thus, a three-layered wedding cake with only eucalyptus decorations might look plain. But behind a simple-looking cake is a burst of sweetness no one can resist.
Eucalyptus Arch Decoration
The arch serves as the focal point of a wedding ceremony. Also, it serves as a wedding backdrop during the exchange of vows. So, if you want to make the mood even more romantic when you say I love you, consider decorating an arch well. Use fresh peach roses, pink carnations, and eucalyptus.
