The iconic banana leaf pattern that famously graces the walls at the Beverly Hills Hotel is having a resurgence, and it's bringing all things tropical with it. This on-trend aesthetic is playful, vibrant, and visually dramatic. To inspire your wedding planning, here are some of the best ways to include tropical decor at your wedding.
Palm leaves, banana leaves, and any other tropical leaf can be a great design accent for a wedding. These voluminous plants are often a more affordable floral option, which is just another reason to love them.
