Upgrade to a Bride's Maid!

Afternoon Delight

The bridesmaids carried potted plants!



What do you think? I like it but wouldn’t do it myself – know what I mean? 🙂
Bonus: Carries over nicely to reception decor!

    I think it is cute and clever but slightly awkward for them. Holding a bouquet is weird enough.

    Walking down an aisle holding a potted plant seems odd. I like the idea of using potted plants in wedding decor…we’re strongly considering them for our centerpieces but I wouldn’t do that to my girls!

  3. There is a lot of LOVE going on in this photo: love the different yellow dresses, love weddings in general, love the aimed-for simplicity (at least I’m assuming that was the goal), love how happy everyone looks.

    But this reeks of something that was thought up as a ploy to be different strictly for the SAKE of being different. I mean, seriously…POTTED PLANTS? In decor, I’m loving it. It’s delish and cost-effective! Do it. But down the aisle? Wat. On top of the fact that the girls are carrying POTTED PLANTS, they happen to be succulents…aren’t they known all over this blogosphere as one of the chicest must-haves to guarantee your wedding is featured on the most popular blogs? A la…let’s carry potted succulents.

    End vent. After re-reading this, I might be a tad bit cruel. I’m sorry for taking this pent-up frustration out on an innocent photo. But having been a bridesmaid myself, I clearly have a lot of passion in my heart when it comes to crazy bridesmaid accessories 😉

    • My thumb is every color but green – did NOT know these were succulents or I might not have posted it! Now I feel like a ‘joiner’. 😦
      But Hollie I will always love you and your opinions! For reals. And for what it’s worth, it really was a sweet wedding based on the other photos… Minus the succulents, natch. Ha.

      • Oh shush, you are not a joiner! I totally appreciate you posting this picture for the sake of sparking some conversation. Now I will forever count on you to get me through the afternoon by way of scandalous post!

        And I’m sure this wedding was beautiful, I just wish those poor ‘maids didn’t have to deal with carrying pots down the aisle. God forbid they have sweaty hands! But for the sake of being devil’s advocate, I bet those bouquets are still alive X number of months after the wedding!!

      • True! No ‘wasted’ money there! And the more objective I was I realized – maybe they DIDN’T actually carry them down the aisle? No pics of that so maybe they just held them for the photo? Don’t know. Still – interesting idea and I love hearing feedback!
