FLOWERS ARE EXPENSIVE! Flowers are generally a must at weddings and I fully agree they are an essential part of setting the mood. However, rather than paying thousands for flowers everywhere consider limiting the amount of real flowers and using a bit of creativity. Vines, twigs, tall grasses, and even live planted shrubs, vegetables, fruits and herbs can be used to create beautiful centerpieces. Many brides like the idea of keeping their wedding bouquet after the big day. If that sounds like you consider a none-traditional piece composed of only a few flowers or be really edgy and try the bouquets below with no plants at all. If you’re thinking table center pieces choosing live planters can also double as great gifts for your guest.
If you want to get your hands “dirty”…I crack myself up….consider growing your own ferns, rubber plants, herbs, etc for use instead of floral arrangements. If you decide to DIY your plants it will also double as a great Bridal Shower event, a.k.a use your bridal party for free labor.
