They look great!

We did potted herbs (enough for each couple, more or less), which were super cheap and really fun.

As an FYI, I recently saw very similar orchids at Costco for about $15/each–a friend has had one for more than a month now and it looks great.

I love the idea of a potted orchid as a centerpiece. They’re so beautiful & I think would be very special to your family members who get to bring them home after your wedding.

Cute idea!  We almost did potted herb escort "cards"/favors.  Terracotta looks great with anything!

Sorry, a PS–I was recently at a wedding where people at each table "won" the centrepiece in some sort of game (questions about the couple, I think)–it was really fun for that crowd.

This is a great idea!

great way to "freecycle" (www.freecycle.org) your centerpieces – plus your aunts/grandmas/etc will have a growing remembrance of your wedding day!

I think it’s a great idea- I just worry that guests will be claiming them the minute they walk into the reception!  You might have trouble keeping them for you grandmother!

Very cute idea! My old roommate had a big DIY wedding and had potted mums as her centerpieces (her wedding was late September and outside). I think it’s a perfect way to honor everyone!

An idea would be to give it to the oldest person at the table or someone with their birthday closest to your wedding date.

We are planning to do this as well.  We will have 4 on each table of 8, so that each couple can bring one home at the end of the night, and they will double as favors (in addition to the fans we are giving at the ceremony).  We will attach some sort of tag with care instructions, and some sort of cute wording that invites them to take the orchids home at the end of the night.

 

There are online retailers as well as big box stores that sell them for 10-20 a piece.  That might be a better bet.
