Botanical Wedding Gifts & Wedding Décor Ideas
Wedding season 2023 is upon us and don’t you just love it. Here at Team TLB, we think you just can’t beat a good wedding. From the flowers and the fancy outfits to the fine food and fizz, they really are very special occasions filled with love and happiness.
And of course, one thing that everyone wants to get right is the look and feel of the wedding. Obviously, we love a green-themed wedding! We’re also here to help find that oh-so-perfect unique wedding gift for the happy couple or if you’re the bride and groom and you are looking for something special to give to your bridal party as a thank you, choosing the right present can be tricky.
That’s why this week we’re bringing you our hand-picked list of beautifully unique wedding gift and wedding decor ideas. Add some botanical beauties to your dreamy wedding venue, make a statement with our XL plants or give them as favours. Make your guests’ day with a gift that grows. Giving the gift of green will ensure everyone gets a chance to nurture and watch grow and remember your wedding for many months to come.
The Wedding Edit – Green-Themed Wedding Ideas
To make your venue beautifully unique with a whole lot of green we suggest some of these ideas to really up the green theme.
Create a lush green aisle to walk down. Line the aisle with potted ferns or small potted houseplants, creating a vibrant and natural pathway for the bride and groom. This looks perfect in photos too.
Instead of traditional floral centrepieces, go green! Create a living centrepiece with living plants as your table décor, mix different varieties of ferns, mini trees like dracaenas and incorporate different heights and textures for a real wow factor.
Make a beautiful botanical backdrop. Create a stunning botanical backdrop with large potted plants to dial up the green theme. The backdrop can serve as the focal point for the ceremony including your seating plan or why not use it as a fabulous photo booth area.
Create a green arch or half arch (our favourite!) using green foliage like monstera leaves, areca palms and ferns and decorate the arch with lights too to make it magical and romantic. A real focal point for the ceremony and a photo opportunity too!
Add mini potted plants to the tables as decoration. These will serve as a unique place setting but also double up as a memorable favour for your guests to take home and enjoy.
To add even more green to your table, instead of traditional tablecloths or table runners. Use long strips of greenery such as fern fronds or palm leaves as table runners. Intersperse them with candles or mini potted plants for extra lush greenness.
Give your guests mini succulents or houseplants as wedding favours. Why not add a personalisation message to make them extra special like the wedding date or their name.
