Wedding Planning

Petal Pick: Air Plants

When you’re planning a wedding, the last thing you need to worry about as you’re walking down the aisle is whether or not the delicate flowers you’ve selected for your bouquet are going to bite the dust before you say I do.

When you’re planning a wedding, the last thing you need to worry about as you’re walking down the aisle is whether or not the delicate flowers you’ve selected for your bouquet are going to bite the dust before you say I do. And if you’re getting married in a particularly hot, cold, or dry location (okay, even if you’re just looking for a unique wedding arrangement)…well, I have a plant I’d like you to meet.

Have you run into these seriously quirky and unique plants before? Air plants, also called tillandsia, are becoming one of the prettiest parts of one-of-a-kind floral décor and happen to be easy to care for, grow and keep alive from your first photos all the way to the last dance at your reception. Seriously – because what’s more low maintenance than a plant that doesn’t ever require soil to grow? An air plant arrangement, or an air plant wedding bouquet, can be just the detail you need to add an extra bit of personality to your wedding. But wait, there’s more. I’m not a professional (if you want to know how to plant air plants, try this article), but odds are that you’ll be able to take your air plant décor home with you after the celebration and keep it growing as a lovely, living reminder of your wedding day. Hint: this also makes these plants perfect for wedding favors.

Whether you’re looking for an air plant boutonniere or decor, I’ve got piles of inspiration below. Let’s take a look!

 

What do you think of these air plant arrangements? After all time I’ve spent looking at them in wedding décor, I’m realizing I really want to get some for my home, too. They could be the perfect plant, even with my black thumb!
