Wedding Decor Trend: Pampas Grass

Pampas Grass, a popular Instagram decor item, is currently showing up in wedding magazines, celebrity weddings, and Pinterest boards.

We’re seeing it EVERYWHERE and for every aspect of wedding decor from bouquets, centerpieces, and backdrops, to boutonnieres and aisle decoration. It is showy, but in a relaxed, casual type of way plus it has a sculptural quality that is very hip and boho.

The popularity of this grass makes sense because not only is it gorgeous, and on-trend but it also has amazing versatility and range. Its cool feathery texture makes it especially lovely to use fresh or dried. It even works still planted in the ground as an insanely gorgeous natural backdrop. The pretty plants remind us of summertime and beach vacays. And the fluffy fronds are kind of magical especially swaying gently in a breeze with a happy couple in front:

Magnificent Mandy Moore who recently got married in her own backyard (in a gorgeously dreamy pink Rodarte dress) used loads of this boho grass, and we can probably give her credit for making this trend go absolutely wild:

Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco said: “I Do!” to Karl Cook in front on an incredible horseshoe-shaped altar composed of Roses and Pampas Grass fronds.

We are in awe of this unique, light and airy bouquet featured in Martha Stewart Weddings. The addition of just a few fronds of neutral Pampas Grass to this protea and rose bouquet by Viridian Design Studio takes it to a very happy place:

Pampas Grass comes in colors that range from silvery white to blush pink, plus it is dyeable to any shade you can imagine so it can be incorporated into just about any style wedding. We envision it at beach ceremonies, in desert settings, quaint chapels, urban lofts or any outdoor space.

We are obsessed with this fabulous neutral-hued Pampas Grass wedding arch by Bows and Arrows which is lavishly adorned with Garden Roses and glorious Proteas! (Photo: Koby Brown & Event design: Strawberry Milk Events)

Revel Floral designed this exquisite, eight-foot ceremony backdrop which overlooked the San Fransisco Bay.

We are crushing on this beautiful bouquet composed of a dried arrangement of Ruscus, Ferns, Lunaria, and Pampas Grass. This ethereal piece was also created by Revel Floral:

Incorporating some Pampas Grass in your wedding decor is a perfect way to layer in natural elements and texture. This botanical is affordable and bountiful. Just a little bit delivers major style impact, like this Pampas Grass and Ivy chandelier:

Or how adding just a couple of vases of Pampas Grass instantly transform a space into a stylish wedding spot:

Pampas Grass also combines well with other florals, like roses and greenery to form elaborate aisleways:

Set your nuptial table with a soft bohemian style like this amazing tableau from the talented artists at Lady Liberty Events:

We just love how they incorporated rose gold, copper, neutrals, white, blush, and pops of greenery to create an absolutely dreamy wedding tablescape:

No matter how you choose to use Pampas Grass in your special day, we think you’ll be very glad you did. This easy, breezy natural element brings a soft style and a carefree vibe to any setting.
