Our Top Tips for Using Pampas Grass for your Wedding:

  • Leave this one to the experts! Pampas grass can be difficult to handle. Its leaves are blade-like so difficult to manage or cut back. To find the perfect florist to create your dream look, check out the handpicked florists in our suppliers directory.
  • Pair pampas grass with other statement-making flowers rather than dainty blooms. King protea, blousy roses, and orchids all work perfectly with this chic plant.
  • If you live in New Zealand make sure to check the regulations around using pampas grass (yes really!). You can find out more here.
