Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 16, 2013
With the wedding season in full swing, couples across the world are choosing to have weddings that convey a particular theme, idea, or feeling. On June 12, 2013, the Los Angeles Times published an article detailing ways to incorporate a gardening theme into a wedding, and Do the Bride a Favor is drawing inspiration from this article to give advice on incorporating garden elements into a wedding and reception.
1. Stay Native
Native plants and flowers are readily available during the spring and summer months. Contact local greenhouses and nurseries to find native flowers and plants to display at the wedding. These flowers will not only be more affordable, they will be able to stand up to the local climate.
2. Plant Together
Instead of performing a sand ceremony or a candle lighting ceremony at a wedding, have the bridal couple plant a tree or flower together in a pot during the ceremony. The tree or plant can then be transplanted to the couple’s home, where they can enjoy it for years to come.
3. Gardening Favors
If the couple purchased local plants from a greenhouse for the ceremony, they can be given as favors to the wedding guests. Brides can also purchase small pots at a local craft store or on-line, and fill them with dirt and seeds. If the bride is looking for personalized wedding chocolates that are garden-themed, choose monogrammed flower-shaped chocolates, a chocolate oak leaf, fruit flavored jawbreakers, or chocolate covered fruit. The couple can also plant a garden together the year before, or visit a u-pick farm and collect their own fruits and vegetables to make into favors. Another wonderful garden-themed favor idea is to create paper from local flowers and seeds, and include a few pages in a small bag for wedding guests.
Do the Bride a Favor gives inspiration ideas for incorporating gardening elements into a wedding such as purchasing local, native flowers, performing a planting ceremony, and giving guests garden-themed favors.
