Eco-friendly Wedding Centerpieces
very serious about—can also be cost-effective when planning a wedding on a budget.

A Sweet, Edible Arrangement
One of the most popular eco-friendly centerpieces are succulents. Whether you are using them alone, or adding them to flowers, these beautiful plants bring life to your centerpieces. They’re inexpensive and come in a variety of colors. There are so many types of succulents that it isn’t hard to find the perfect match to fit your wedding style.
Store bought flowers are overpriced and usually contain pesticides and chemicals. To be cost-effective and friendly to the environment, grow your own! Use potted flowers or create a flower garden in your backyard. Make sure to plant your desired flower selection in the appropriate season to ensure your flowers are perfect on your special day.
One of my favorite wedding centerpieces are photos of the bride and groom. Number your tables by having photos of the bride and groom at that age. On table one have baby photos, or for table 16 have photos of the bride and groom getting their driver’s licenses. Guest will enjoy the photos at their tables, and the bride and groom can create an album using these photos after the wedding.
If a beach or destination wedding is your dream, then a sand and seashell centerpiece is ideal. Collect seashells together while walking on the beach a few days before your wedding. Take sand and add the seashells on top, or collect driftwood for a more rustic touch. After the wedding, put the sand and seashells in a glass bowl to create a centerpiece for a bathroom at home.
A wedding should be a reflection of the bride and groom, and so should your centerpieces.
Have fun together while creating new ideas to bring your dream wedding to fruition, while being friendly to the environment.
