Green Wedding Design: Plants!

Whether or not you have a green thumb, incorporating plants into your wedding design is the perfect way to add a natural element to your style! It’s an environmentally conscious design choice and also can be the perfect take home gift for your guests. Whether it is houseplants, potted herbs or outdoor plants for the garden it adds that perfect organic touch to create a warm inviting atmosphere. Using them from ceremony to reception here are some beautiful elegant ways to incorporate plants into your event:
