  • Wedding: June 2013

We had a bunch of potted planters around our tented park reception.  We got married in early June, which is when you plant flowers in the ground in Minnesota (where we got married).  My SIL and an Aunt volunteered (actually came up with the idea) and put them together for us, then after the wedding brought them home and replanted them.  They both have very green thumbs and just used the normal plants they would use in their gardens, since I wasn’t too particular.  Do you have some good gardening friends that could give you some help or input?  If not, and if you are in the US, your local Extension Office can help with a bunch of resources.  (Almost every county in the US has an Extension office!)

We did this. Honestly our wedding backdrop looked like a magical garden it was gorgeous.  We had one lady buy flowers and srubs and actually we BORROWED a bunch of big planters from a local nursery. Legit its amazing what you can get for free if you ask. We ended up buying some other planters from her since she was so generous but we borrowed like $150-200 worth of shrubs we just brought back the next day.

Since I’m at work I don’t have a lot of pictures, but here are a few that I could find showing some of the plants we had.     The first one is actually there to cover a fire pit!  We didn’t just want a random open hope in the ground, so we just turned it into something nice!
