If you’re a plant lover who is stuck for wedding ideas, then look no further. We have found the best botanical features for your plant themed wedding. Now you can express both your love of plants and of your partner on your special day.

The Venue

Nothing is better for a plant lover than a luscious green backdrop to their special day. For a summer wedding, why not consider a botanical garden.

For rainy or wintry garden weddings, an orangery is the ideal setting. You and your guests can enjoy the beautiful greenery while remaining warm and dry.

The Dress

If a bougie botanical garden is out of your wedding budget, bring the florals to you and try a 3D lace wedding dress. There are so many options for floral inspired appliques, ranging from over the top flowers to grown-up, elegant leaves.

Brides who have opted for a venue with more wow factor might want to consider something sleek and elegant to balance out the backdrop. Think garden party chic with plenty of smooth silk to contrast the riot of green and colour around you.

The Rings

For a plant themed wedding, you can’t go wrong with rings that echo the theme of the day. This stunning forget me not ring is decorated using traditional hand-engraving methods, and is akin to wearing a piece of art on your finger.

The flowers entwine around the entirety of the band, catching the light for a subtle sparkle.

Garden loving grooms will love the earthy splendour of a ring with a wooden inlay. There are rings available with several kinds of wood, so you can choose one that is meaningful to you.

The Invitations

For a plant themed wedding the world is your oyster when it comes to invitations. There are hundreds of gorgeous floral designs available from every wedding invite manufacturer, so it is down to you to narrow down what you like. Make sure you have a firm colour scheme, because it can be overwhelming when trying to choose a design otherwise!

You can easily press fresh flowers between the pages of a heavy book. Make sure you put a piece of parchment paper on each side of the flower, and stack more books on top of the first to get them nice and flat.

You could also do a beautiful DIY wedding invitation using pressed flowers and good quality paper. This would be a great way to use up any floral arrangements you receive as engagement gifts! Leave a comment below if you would like to see an easy DIY tutorial for pressed flowers.

The Details

Of course the most important aspect of a plant themed wedding is the flowers! We love the concept of using potted plants as centrepieces. Not only is this better for the environment, but they can also double up as favours for your guests. Potted plants look best as part of a low profile centrepiece that runs the full length of a long table – think banquet style. Pair the plants with tall candle sticks and rustic table runners for a good mix of height and dimension.

Scented herbs like lavender make for delightfully fragrant and appetizing centrepieces.

Another fun idea is to use mini potted plants such as succulents or cacti as name card holders. Again these make ideal wedding favours, and they look so cute at each table setting.

Finally, for couples looking for a real wow factor at their event, why not go for a floral backdrop wall. This is perfect for wedding photos, guest images, and is a great backdrop to get married against. You can customise the florals to match your favourite flowers and plants, and even the colour scheme of your event. This is the perfect show stopper for any plant themed wedding.
