Happy first day of the rest of your lives together. We can think of so many reasons to try potted plants as decor opposed to fresh cut flowers, but let’s start with the obvious: they last! What says everlasting love better than florals that will live beyond the beauty of your wedding day? Bridechilla™ has already fallen in love with potted herbs and plants for thank you favors, but now we would like to offer another eco-chill alternative.

By having potted florals as your table centerpiece, you can open your floral options up to even the more sensitive flowers that would normally wilt when snipped from the stem. Feel free to choose potted gardenias, and let your guests enjoy the amazing aroma of a flower they normally wouldn’t be able to enjoy at any other wedding.

With the cost of floral design costs, why not spend your money on something that you can take home to have for years to follow instead of just one day? Take home the potted plants and adorn your backyard, front steps, tables, coffee tables, etc. with memorabilia of your wedding day. You can even send them home with your guests!
