@sealevels:  Honestly…they are underwelming. I think you just need more to it. It’s a great start, but they could use more…volume.

Maybe add candles or a larger planter box (sorry if you already planned on doing this) to cluster them together and still have a cohesive look.

I’d love it!  Knowing that you are an avid gardener it would add a personal touch!  I say definitely go for it!

@sealevels:  I’ve seen potted plants as center peices. My sorority often uses african violets

@sealevels:  It is just hard to visualize what the end result will be. It sounds like you have an idea of how to give the centerpieces more umph and presence, so that is good!

I think greenery could be SO pretty for a wedding centerpiece. I am having a difficult time envisioning them with these plants because they are all so different in style, and I can’t really picture what you’re thinking with the pots.

I also think you risk a ton of stress in the few weeks before the wedding waiting to see if they bloom/grow the way you want, repotting, transporting, etc.

Love the idea of plants, though, I think the idea just needs a little bit of development. Can you do a mockup one or post some inspiration photos?

@sealevels:  I would honestly feel delighted to see them, and would enjoy scoping them out. I’m assuming they would be quite large by then too, nice and fiilled out; mature, if you will.

I like this idea very much.

Agreeing with the PP. I think you have the foundation for a great centerpiece but it’s hard to see bc the plants aren’t blooming. Do you have a backup just in case they don’t fill in by the time of the wedding?

I think this could be really cute provided that your beautify them. Maybe you could do some iron trellises or old watering cans as containers?

Oh, how pretty! You are going to save so much $$$ doing it this way. If I could harness the discipline to grow my own plants and flowers, and be successful at it, I can only imagine the possibilites.
