Decorating Your Wedding with Potted Plants: Part 4: Seating Assignments and Everywhere Else

As we wrap up our series, Decorating Your Wedding with Potted Plants, we explore ways to utilize potted plants as both seating assignments and guest favors and we note other spots where they’d look amazing as well. We simply love this idea. Potted plants are fashionable and functional. They will dress up each area of your wedding and you’ll be able to enjoy these potted gems long after the wedding day is over.

We hope you’ve been inspired to incorporate potted plants, in your wedding day decor. There are so many options for color, style and texture that you are sure to find a plant that fits your design. And, potted plants make great gifts so if you find you have a few extra, send one home with your photographer and caterer. They’d love that!
