I like them. You have time to develop and tweak some things, but love the price of the plants 😀
I say go for it!!! The inspiration photos are awesome – and I know yours will look equally cool!
I think it could be really pretty or.lame depending on how you do it. My sister had plants for her centerpieces but it wasn’t just chilling in a pot on the table so it looked pretty.
I tihnk you need something colorful to break up the green. I know next to nothing about plants, so if they bloom with colorful blossoms, I take that back!
I think its a great idea and will look amazing! I love personal touches like this at weddings 🙂
Thanks for all of the input – positive or otherwise. 🙂
By The Way, I realize not many of you guys are active in gardening or think about plants on a semi-often basis. Plants do grow fast, some fast than others. For instance, this is one of my plants in May:
And a few months ago in October:
One summer’s growth! I have two years to fill these babies out and it’ll look much better.
Of course, I’m not going to put them on the table in their original pots. I’ll be using the same theme of cache pots. Some centerpieces will be one plant (either raised and cascading for a hanging plant), or bunched together for the smaller ones. I’ll be using candles and glass vases next to the plants.
And yes, gardening is a huge part of my life. We want the reception indoors but next to our ceremony space. Bringing the garden inside! Besides, it’s close family and friends and they all know I have crazy amounts of plants. It would be my biggest personal touch.
Also, some more of my plants that I can group up.
This is making me want to garden! 🙂
This may sound odd, but I like the metal loops, gives them height. Maybe you can recreate it with leaves? and a candle in a hanging votive holder….IDK, I think if you have a large group of them in differing heights, not just sitting on the table, it’lll look awesome.
I love this idea!!! It gives your wedding soe personality. And I would definately include little signs of something in the program that explains that you grew the all!
Love the idea — especially naming the tables after kinds of plants and having a card with information about them.
I think it will be especially charming in an outdoor/garden setting in April. It might be nice to toss in some bulb flowers for spring.
