20 Tropical Leaf Wedding Bouquets
Some of the most beautiful and exotic plants originate in tropical locations. Oftentimes, it's this natural vegetation that attracts so many couples to these breathtaking destinations—especially for weddings. Although we can't all tie the knot at these vacation spots, that doesn't mean we shouldn't use their resources to elevate our own events. The best way to do this? Incorporate tropical leaves throughout your wedding, particularly in your big-day bouquet. Whether you use tropical greenery as filler or as the main element of your clutch, there are so many ways to enhance your arrangement with this type of flora—and there are so many different types of greenery available to you. From split leaf philodendrons to colorful Chinese evergreens, the possibilities are endless.
Areca palms are one of the most popular tropical leaves you'll find in bouquets. Include them in your spray, and you'll instantly imbue your florals with a summery aesthetic. This particular plant is also compatible with a wide variety of blooms. Take this Flower Duet bouquet, for example. Though its palm elements stood out, they also played up the arrangement's other statement florals and greenery. Palms can also work as a subtler aspect of a more diverse selection thanks to their thinner shape. Either way, you're promised a stunning outcome.
Since no one tropical leaf looks quite like the other, you can even combine multiple types for a non-floral bouquet—they're that striking. It's no wonder that tropical foliage has inspired a major wedding bouquet trend. As you will notice ahead, there is tropical leaf bouquet inspiration fit for every bride and wedding theme.
