Pampas Grass: A 2020 Decor Trend For Your Indian Wedding

Chances are that as you’ve skimmed through Pinterest or Instagram looking for wedding decor inspiration, you’ve come across chic, boho wedding decor using pampas grass. What is it? It’s a tall grass native to South America and planted in sunny coastal areas in California and the southeast. Not so great for planting in your backyard (it’s considered an invasive weed and is banned in New Zealand and Hawaii), but gorgeous (and affordable!) for your wedding floral arrangements. And while it may not be an eco-friendly addition to your landscaping, dried pampas grass is a great sustainable alternative to other wedding flowers. Unlike a lot of other flowers, you don’t need foam to hold together arrangements or water to keep them hydrated. And since they last forever – use an eco-friendly hairspray to ensure longevity and prevent color loss, especially if you buy the pretty pink ones – you can save them from your wedding and use them as decor in your home. Now that you know what it is and why you should consider using it in your wedding, it’s time to get some inspiration for what it can look like on your big day. Take a look below to find out how to incorporate pampas grass into your wedding decor.
