Nowadays, everyone is on a budget; so, when it comes to your wedding, it’s important to get the most bang for your buck.  One way you can do this is by having centerpieces that double as favors!

One of my favorite dueling decorations is potted or replant able centerpieces that your guests can take home and enjoy long after the disco lights dim and the dances are done.  By using dual purposed décor, you’ll not only create a standout look for your reception, but a standout memory for all your guests.

Everything from fragrant herbs and superb spices to vibrant blossoms and tall grasses can all be arranged to your liking and sent home with your guests for theirs.  It’s a win / win for everyone! 

And depending on your budget, you can easily make homemade plant boxes for super cheap, simply by using wood, nails and a stain of your choice… or leave the wood as is for an even cheaper, more rustic solution!  As always, it’s really up to you.  Get as over the top or under the radar as you want… just be sure to have fun and stay happy :)

Here are some of my faves:

    That’s awesome! Just think how inexpensive it would be to start them from seeds! And it would be even more personal because of all the care involved in helping them grow, rather than just buying an already-potted plant.
