Dusty Miller Leaves Are The Perfect Textured Accent For Your Wedding Flowers

If you're going for lush organic floral arrangements at your wedding, you need to think beyond just flowers — leaves can be just as important as the blooms you choose (and we even love the idea of an all leaf bouquet!). Accent leaves come in all shapes and sizes and lately dusty miller has been having a moment. If you're not familiar with the lingo, dusty miller is the name of a group of leafy plants that all have a felt-like texture and look like they've been dusted with silver. The metallic gray coloring on top of the plant's natural green gives the leaf its "dusty" name, but also makes it a softer, lighter shade of green than other leafy accents.

Dusty miller is the perfect textured leaf for any season — it blends in well with wintery white and silver color combos and lets more summery bright colored florals really stand out. See our favorite dusty miller floral arrangements below to get ideas for incorporating them into your own wedding flowers.
