What better way to start a new life together with your significant other than to be surrounded by something that symbolizes longevity, luck, fortune and enlightenment? Bamboo is a great element to sprinkle throughout your wedding. There are lots of ways to incorporate this eco-friendly resource into your special day.
Here are some ideas for how to do so …
The stationery you choose will likely be your guest’s first impression of your wedding day. Whether your guests realize it or not, your save-the-dates or invitations are the “preview” or “sneak peek” for the theme/color/or recurring elements at the wedding. Use bamboo right off the bat!
Thank your guests and wedding party by giving them a bamboo favor to remember the day!
I love this “Hand in Hand” bamboo salad server set. You can even personalize the labels!
Now these favors are, by far, my favorite. Give your wedding guests a lucky bamboo plant! They are very cute and super easy to take care of.
Lucky bamboo plants come in all shapes and sizes – go with whatever you prefer. Check out these heart-shaped ones …
Another reason I love the lucky bamboo plant favors is because they can double as your escort cards! Just hang a little tag around them with the name and table number … They look great set up on a table together. AND it’s an awesome way to welcome your guests to the reception!
You can even add your monogram or directions for taking care of the plant on the other side of the tag.
Use bamboo sticks as a base for your flower centerpieces. Of course you could also use the lucky bamboo plants, again, as centerpieces. The number of bamboo stalks you put together changes the meaning of the plant. If you are using bamboo to symbolize certain meanings or benefits, you can find a list of what those are here.
As you can probably guess … the bamboo list goes on and on. You can use it in everything from a bamboo altar to decorations to place settings and silverware!
