Terrariums for Weddings: Learn More + Enter to Win!

Posted June 30, 2011 by EmmalineBride | ♥ 1 Comment

Good morning lovelies – today we’re discussing terrariums for weddings! What’s a terrarium, you ask? A terrarium is a collection of small plants growing in a transparent, sealed container. It’s sort of a mini, DIY eco-system filled with nature-inspired finds. Terrariums for wedding centerpieces has become a popular decor choice for rustic weddings. Terrariums use natural, eco-friendly materials and are handmade easily. My favorite part? Terrariums can be made weeks before the wedding and still look perfect, since they do not require much care. This means you won’t be running around a few days before the wedding frantically assembling centerpieces. Terrariums can contain any type of materials you dream of (rocks, moss, grass, etc.) and incorporate personalized details (a mini deer, instruments, tiny toadstools, miniatures – there are literally no rules). These tiny nature-filled treasures will look great as centerpieces at your rustic wedding or outdoor event!
