6 Spectacular Ways To Use Pampas Grass On Your Wedding Day

Updated: Dec 8, 2018

Bohemian style weddings just got a facelift

Bohemian or Boho-Chic weddings have been running the wedding game for more than a decade now. Martha Stewart Weddings calls Bohemian weddings, "More woodland nymph than fairytale princess" The article continues, describing boho weddings as,

"Boho weddings incorporate an eclectic mix of natural, rustic, and vintage details into the design." --Martha Stewart Weddings

Whether you're embracing the Boho theme or are going with your own style. Pampas Grass is the perfect ornamental grass for any wedding, especially, desert, boho, mid-century modern, beach style weddings. The tall, fluffy, feathery, neutral hue, ornamental grass is great for billowing alters, textured backdrops, ultra fancy hanging chandeliers, cost-effective aisle liners, or bouquet fluffers!


Though Pampas grass came straight out of the 70's, it's finally making a comeback in 2019. The trend has been slowly growing over the last two years, with over 31,000 tags on instagram! We predict it's going to get even bigger this year!


Pampas grass can range in color from silvery white to Himalayan Salt pink.

We can see the color range featured by the timelessly beautiful, Mandy Moore. The voice of Rapunzel married her fiancee Taylor Goldsmith in this ultra-low-key backyard boho wedding fit for a princess.

Jen, from The Green Wedding Shoes called the Moore-Goldsmith wedding:
"One of the most dreamy boho backyard weddings we've seen this year."

Mandy did a great job of incorporating the latest trends to her beautiful day! Congratulations to the beautiful couple!


#1: Cake Toppers

Oregon based cake decorators @wildflower.cakes proved that you can use Pampas grass in all aspects of your wedding to create a beautifully moody wedding. The caramel was a sweet touch as well.

UK based wedding photographer Karen Forte writes, "Having an autumn wedding means you can embrace the trend for dried flowers and grasses. We love this mix of autumnal colours and textures + that cake!!" We couldn't agree more. Just look at those deep autumn colors!

#2: Bouquets

#3 Walkways


Use Pampas grass to create a walkway guests will never forget. We love the way Spain based wedding decorator @millepapillons used the grass to accent the aisle.

Super jealous of the lucky couple who get's to walk down this stunning aisle! Thanks to Florida based wedding planner @weddingtidbits for hosting the most fun weddings and renewals. Getting married in Naples Florida? Contact Kelly McWilliams by clicking the photo below today.


#4 Back Drops

Adding just a few stems of Pampas grass will add height, volume and texture to your backdrop. Use it for the wedding photos, the alter, or the reception head table!


This couple, Meghna and Naveen, used a huge variety of flowers in their arrangement, coupled with several feathery Pampas stems to give their backdrop the height it was needing. The two were married in Rome on the 7th of February, 2018! Congrats, and great use of Pampas grass!

Hong Kong based wedding and event decorators did a phenomenal job of incorporating the Pampas grass to this stunning alter arch.

#5 Centerpieces

For these beauties to work, you should remember the height. Either lay them down on the table or find a fun, boho vase that compliments the height!

Colorado based florist @laceandlillies really knew how to get the height on these amazing centerpieces just right!

These centerpieces are exploding with fluff and perfection! Not to mention the creative use of Pampas grass in the flower curtain as a backdrop! Some great inspiration here!

#6: Hanging
