The Theme: this bridal shower theme is as simple as it sounds – greens and gold! By “greens”, we mean lush, live greenery. This trend is all over weddings and we, the budget-wedding experts, love its simplicity and super-affordable price tag. But…every bride needs a little sparkle, right? That’s why we’ve mixed in a bit of gold. Wham, bam, glam! She’ll love it.
The Style: a bridal shower with a nature-based theme can go down a number of different style avenues. Rustic. Romantic. Vintage. But to create style that looks like the one we’ve featured here think Minimalist. To create a minimalist look, keep the styling super simple. Your mantra should be: less is more.
The Budget Savers:
Idea #1 – Don’t think you can afford to send real invitations out? Think again! The greenery bridal shower invitation featured in our mood board is just 69¢ (yes, no matter how many you need!).
Idea #2 – Run to your nearest Trader Joe’s and scoop up all the fresh eucalyptus you can handle. This gem of a grocery store is the best source for cheap greenery at a fabulous price. Use floral wire to string them into a floral garland, place cut stems in a vase or pluck leaves and use them as toppers on cake or cupcakes.
Idea #3 – Embroidery hoop DIY! Create hanging decorations that fit your minimalist style with two simple supplies. Purchase embroidery hoops at your local craft store, then hot glue those cheap eucalyptus branches on for a simple look that can be used long after the bridal shower is over. Bonus points if you spray paint the hoops gold to match your theme.z
