Go Green: Substitute Plants for Flowers In Your Wedding

It’s normal that many brides-to-be picture fresh cut flowers for their wedding. However, there is an excellent alternative to this norm- one that could save you money while also creating a natural, fresh approach to your theme. Substitute the flowers for greenery with potted plants, cacti, and succulents.

A Garden Wedding

Arizona brides have the advantage to using cacti and a garden themed wedding would be ideal. Desert Botanical Garden is a beautiful garden where can host your wedding. It was even voted “The Knot Best of Weddings” for the past three years. (https://www.dbg.org/events-exhibitions/hold-an-event#weddings)

Plant Decor

Use potted plants rather than flowers and no matter what location you choose for your wedding, you can create a gorgeous atmosphere.

Small potted plants for reception table centerpieces, plants such as African Violets, Lisianthus and Mini Carnations are perfect. Larger plants like Calla Lilies, Jasmine, or Roses can be used in the ceremony aisles, to accent the wedding cake table, and more.

Another great benefit to using potted plants and cacti is that you can use them multiple times- for the rehearsal dinner, wedding, and the reception. Cut flowers will die in days and can get expensive, while you can save these plants even after the wedding for your home and even as mementos.
