I love the idea of potted plants. Two of my favorites are African Violets and Cyclamens. However, I have always had trouble getting them to bloom again. An easy one is Petunias….with a bit of sun and some watering they bloom over and over again.

I was going to do them, but instead we’re using bear grass and a few florals…  What about some succulents.  I think they would look fabulous!

Planning on doing it myself…it works for us because it will be a more casual outdoorsy wedding. I think its a great alternative.

I think thats adorable!

Maybe you could even invest in a cluster centerpiece type. with a while bunch of potted plants in the middle rather than one large one, so all your guests can take something home!

This is what we’re doing. I’m thinking potted herbs like lavender and rosemary. We’re getting married in two weeks and I’ve been putting off actually going and buying everything because I don’t want to inadvertently kill them before the big day. I’m thinking in a week I’ll drop by the nursery and figure it all out.

I love that idea & actually doing it myself for my bridal shower with potted herb plants with their meanings attached to them in relation to the wedding/love. Good luck! I too dont get the point of paying tons for flowers & then they are just going to die – which is why I am using single orchids in vases with tons of candles for the wedding.

We used potted orchids on some of our tables and got rave reviews from guests.  After it was over, we kept some and sent the rest with our parents and a few select guests/friends that were instrumental in pulling off our day.  They are a little more difficult to care for, but they were/are beautiful, and I’m so glad we were able to use them.  I’m afraid I don’t have any suggestions, but I love this idea!

We are probably going to do the potted mums that look like daisies. And then this we can give some away and still have some to plant in our yard to have something to remember our day by.

Martha Stewart weddings is always using this as an idea. Check out their website for inspiration. I almost did this and then my mother objected. She likes everything very very traditional.

I love the idea.  We wanted to do it with potted hydrangea and then we could take them home and give to family to plant (hello?  Forever reminder of the day! ) but it ended up being more expensive to do somehow.  That probably just because they were hydrangeas.  I like the succulents and herbs idea.  Or Lavender, something yummy smelling
