Hi,

I LOVE this idea.  I think it is so wonderful- plus, your guests will have something from your wedding that will live on, that will continue to bloom and grow- I think it is lovely!

I was going to do this for my wedding, but my ideas slowly took a different turn, in order to minimize.  (Now I am using mainly candles and candelabras.)

You could have them in matching pots- that would be perfect.  Good luck!

I don’t have photos, but I went to one where teh centerpieces were all potted plants in cute little customized planters.  There was some sort of game (only took 2-3 min…something about people dancing around the table I think?) to determine who “won” the plant at each table and could take it home at the end of the night.  I think it’s a great “green” option if you don’t want to give up fresh flowers.

I think potted plants are a great cneterpiece idea. They are eco-friendly (and cost friendly) compared to to cut flowers. You can also work on them ahead of time!

@jordynrose, What’s the source for photo 4?  The really colorful one?  I REALLY like that one.

I think I would do this, and under each pot have different criteria

  • The couple who have been married the longest/shortest.
  • Person with the longest/shortest last name.
  • Youngest/oldest person.
  • Tallest/shortest person

I def thought about doing this!

Other options include potted herbs or succulents. To save $$ if you have time buy just the seeds and cheap pots from Dollar Store!

If we were having a wedding in our home town I would have definitely done this. We love plants and gardening so it would have worked out well.

I’m seriously considering doing dwarf evergreen trees as part of my centerpiece:

I absolutely love succulents…I think they would look great as centerpieces.

I am hoping to do wheatgrass with some flowers on top. I know that wheatgrass is suuuuuper easy to grow and I figure it will be easier than growing all the flowers.I plan to order my flowers from a wholesaler and just loosely place them on top of the wheatgrass. Here’s the inspiration for what i am doing.
