    @wildflowerbee:  I think that’s a great idea! You could really do any potted flower you want and you could even grow them yourself if you wanted to.

    This is a great idea, and I’ve seen plenty of pics on pinterest with just what you’re describing. It looks awesome!

    I want to do something along these lines. Succulents are kind of a theme in our wedding decorations and I want to do succulent terrariums. I made one on my own for practice to see if I could grown them all, but I’ve realized I don’t have enough space so I’m thinking about contacting a greenhouse to grow them for me. Here’s my trial one:

    @wildflowerbee:  I love this idea! It sounds much more affordable too. Roses are a great pick but you could really do any flower you want!

    I really really considered doing potted plants! But it didn’t match my over all idea :-/ They are so natural and way cheaper! Plus guest can take them home after the wedding, I think it’s a great idea!

    I’m doing this, I got ivory urn shaped pots from a wholesaler and will be planting cyclamens in them. Mainly to save flower costs. we also bought black pebbles to put on top of the soil to keep it clean. We have potted some lavender as well that we plan to use as aisle decoration.

    I did this! I used mini roses and popped them into some cute planters from Ikea. I also used florist picks to hold the table numbers:

    @wildflowerbee:  Potted flowers make a lovely centerpiece. Potted roses can be a little sparse though- it depends on how bushy they are and how many blooms per plant.

    I have seen many kinds of plants used depending on the timing and color scheme of the wedding. Orchids are gorgeous and very elegant.

    You can also use tiny little plants in what’s called a breakaway centerpiece. You cluster the pots in the middle of the table and each person takes one home, so they double as favors.

    I have seen weddings with them before. I might do this. I think spending thousands on flowers that only last a day is ridiculous so this would make more sense and you can plan ahead and keep them after.

    I used to work for a restaurant that catered, and one of the best weddings that we catered while I worked there had potted flower centerpieces! And the bride’s family owned one of the local floral farms, so they could have done all cut flowers. They had long tables with potted flowers, tea lights in little glass containes, and bud vases with one or two flowers in them. Guests at that wedding were scrambling to grab as much as possible. People really wanted those flowers!!
