2016 Trend: In the Green

If you’ve been swimming in bouquets and scratching your head trying to figure out your roses from your lilies, then maybe it just might be that floral isn’t for you and your wedding. And that’s OK. 2016 has seen simple greenery as a huge wedding trend and its elegant simplicity makes it easy to figure out why.

The Bouquet

Where you’d normally be colour coordinating your tulips with your roses while making sure that neither clash with your daisies (heaven forbid), swap the flowers for all-green foliage. Use a succulent as the centre and create some depth and texture with ferns, plumosa and salal greens.

The Decorations

Ivory and white offset green perfectly – so keep the rest of your décor simple and understated so your pops of green can really do the talking. Create garlands with different size leaves to drape across the front of the top table. Decorate light fixtures with hanging ferns and replace flowers with cacti for the table decorations. Simple, quirky and sure to get your guests talking.

The Backdrop

Dedicate a wall in your venue to transform into a “plant wall”. The statement décor will be the perfect backdrop for photos of you and your guests to savour the memories. We suggest hanging strips of leaves downwards to completely cover the wall, or discreetly pin the foliage so it hangs decoratively.

There are loads of other ways you could make greenery your statement theme, but our main tip is keep it simple!


A massive thank you for providing an amazing and unique tent for our wedding. We were both so glad we went with the stretch tent for something a bit different and we couldn’t have been more pleased! All of our guests said how fabulous it looked! A big thank you also to everyone at Morton’s for helping and answering all of our questions in the run up to our big day. I definitely feel I know more about luxury toilets and generators! We would recommend Morton’s to anyone planning a wedding and wanting a tent which is a little different.

We were delighted with the marquee supplied by Morton’s Events.

Our guests were bowled over by the interlinking hexagonal “pods” (as we called them) and all commented on how special it made the wedding breakfast seem. We managed to accomodate 170 guests in plentiful space while making it seem intimate and cosy.

Mortons’ staff were incredibly helpful,flexible and obliging and decorated the marquee beautifully,with fairy lights and a fabulous starcloth ceiling over the dance “pod”.

Together with table decorations designed by my daughter,the effect created was magical,or as one guest put it “breathtaking.”

We would unhesitatingly advise any family contemplating a wedding in a marquee to opt for Morton’s.

Morton’s were professional, accurate, knowledgable and nothing seemed a problem.


The pods lend themselves in any situation and function and looked far better than we had both dreamed of.
Thank you Simon for making our day go without a hitch and for all your hard work and for what seemed like ours was the only function that year!

We had Mortons marques for our daughters wedding. With 200 guests we had 5 pods, a 5×5 square for the bar area and another as the entrance.

The seating for the guests wrapped round the dance floor giving a wonderful view to all and creating a great atmosphere. Mortons were so helpful always at the end of the phone and the whole day and all preparations went to plan. We would definitely use them again.
