Renting plants for a wedding can be more "green," more distinctive and more affordable than buying flowers. Start with a floral arch, or series of arches, for the ceremony. Then carry the look through to the reception with trees, hedges, bushes and plants decorated with twinkle lights, ribbons or your own special accents. If your local florist doesn't rent plants for weddings, you can find plant-rental companies online.
Things to Consider
Ask the plant-rental companies for pictures of the actual plants you will be getting. The plants often suffer from being carted around. Book well in advance and be prepared to put down a 10-percent deposit. Make sure that the plant renter and your wedding coordinator have shared contact information. The coordinator or some trusted friend should be at the venue for the delivery, with a checklist of all the expected items. Be sure to give your provider all of the pertinent information, such as stairs, delivery entrance, delivery elevators and any other special instructions, such as hours of delivery.
