Palm leaves are the ideal embellishment for a wedding with a beach or tropical motif, and they have been used in various wedding details, including invitations, the bride bouquet, and even the wedding cake. Recently, dried palms have been making an appearance in floral arrangements created by florists. When palm leaves are completely dry, they take on a completely another persona, becoming more sculptural, wispy, ragged, and textured than they were before.
When palms are totally dehydrated, their vibrant green color changes to softer, desaturated tones of mint, sage, taupe, and tobacco. These colors give floral arrangements a charming aged and earthy patina. Celebrations that are conducted in venues that provide a “blank canvas” with lighter color palettes and surfaces, such as stone walls, industrial concrete, or arid deserts, are enhanced by the addition of gorgeous dried palm leaves.
Some of our preferred methods for decorating with dried palm leaves
Bridal Bouquet in Peach and Mint Colors
This bouquet of garden roses and ranunculus is given a three-dimensional quality by the incorporation of dried fan palms with spiky leaves. A little coating of pale menthol green paint was sprayed onto the palm fronds that had been maintained.
Trendy Wedding Background
You’re not into the floral arch, are you? Suppose the Museum of Modern Art is more your style than the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In that case, the notion of a contemporary, attention-grabbing ceremony background for your vow exchange is one that we adore. This impressive installation, which was created by the most talented Studio, is made up of a dozen enormous palm fronds that were allowed to dry out before being assembled together.
Mood of Generosity
Some couples decide to forego the use of a conventional ceremony arch in favor of exchanging their vows in front of an impressive tree that had been adorned with cascading garlands of baby’s breath, white blossoms, and a spray of dried palm fronds. Both “planting seeds” and “developing roots” were recurring metaphors that ran throughout the couple’s wedding vows, and the floral arrangement maintained a level of sensitivity to the natural setting that surrounded the location.
Flower Bouquet for Love
This elegant bohemian color scheme is so on point that it could pass for an Instagram filter. Roses in tones of pink, brown, and ivory, as well as bleached and dry desert palms, teeny-tiny sprigs of foliage, and feathery pampas, are all wonderfully gentle and charming.
A traditional bar would not be appropriate for a Hawaiian wedding with Costa Rican elements. The vivid designs, native greenery, fresh fruits, vibrant colors, and dried pink desert sun palms give this station an exotic feel that plays off all the pleasure that can be had in the tropics.
This centerpiece will not go unnoticed at all, nor should it, given the fact that it also contains the signage for the signature cocktails. The luxuriant arrangement is brimming with anthuriums, fluffy pampas grass, dried palm fronds, and other locally foraged blossoms.
Frame of Respect for the Sacred Ceremony
In this old Guatemalan chapel, the use of floral arrangements that are often associated with femininity or an elaborate wedding arch would have been entirely inappropriate. This extraordinary display of dried palm leaves, indigenous flowers, pink anthuriums, and lighting kept the spiritual nature of the place while also providing a sympathetic frame for the event.
Accented with pale pink anthuriums and the organic subtleties of dried palms, foraged blooms in spicy hues of scarlet, ruby, and ginger are featured in the arrangement. The bride decided against having a typical dress train, so she riffed off on the idea by adding a 60-inch long amber ribbon to her bouquet to give it a “feeling of movement.”
Palms with Gold Leaf
If there isn’t even a trace of ’70s elegance, you can’t call it Palm Springs stylish. This dessert table was decorated with a hanging installation consisting of a rose-gold hoop that was decorated with white flowers, ferns, and dried palm leaves that were, of course, painted in gold.
The guests dine beneath a spectacular canopy of baby’s breath, amaranthus, and dried palm fronds in a setting that combines a contemporary and bohemian aesthetic with elements of the tropics. The color scheme is washed out and neutral, which gives off the vibe of a beach party.
Flower Wall in Honor of Name
This flower wall is the epitome of sophistication, with its elegant, natural color palette consisting of ivories, champagnes, creams, and tans. The inclusion of bleached and dried fan leaves, as well as sun palms, maintains the idea while also contributing a spiky texture and undeniably bohemian air to the overall design. Not to be overlooked, a personalized neon sign bearing the newlyweds’ couple’s names adds a dash of coolness to the wedding celebration.
