I am debating on whether or not to have a tree planting ceremony at our wedding. I was hoping to do a hydrangea plant (my favorite) as a symbolic moment for my Fiance and I but now I’m not too sure about the logistics behind it.
Has anyone done this or something similar? Planning on doing it?
What do you need? What do you do?

This isn’t exactly related, but we’re using succulents all over the place and will be transplanting them into a succulent garden when all’s said and done. Maybe something on the smaller side would work out for you?

@Blanche: So you aren’t doing anything during the ceremony? Just replanting afterwards, right?
I am tempted to do this, just have the plant there at the ceremony and plant it in our yard aferwards without a big to do. Not sure. I really do like the symbolism of the ceremony itself but it seems like it can be awkward.

What if you incorporated the Blessing Tree into it and had guests tie notes onto it following the ceremony?
You could take it home and plant it following your big day.

@Treejewel19: Correct, not during the ceremony. We’re already doing a ring warming and a non-traditional ceremony so adding in yet another unique thing would probably make my grandma’s head explode.

@Blanche: Ah good point.
I’m not doing anything else in the way of unique traditions that is why I wanted to include this tree ceremony. I am just going crazy trying to figure out how to make it not awkward.

I would just be prepared, emotionally, if the plant doesn’t thrive. I wouldn’t put too much meaning into something that could die, even if you do everything right.
Sorry to be negative but I tend ot think cynically.

@LemonLavender: Oh I totally understand. When I was new to gardening plants had a 50/50 chance of survival so I get it.
Hydrangeas are pretty successful in my garden so I think it will be okay.
