Like clothes, food and music, weddings are subject to trends. One year it’s pastel colours, the next it’s humanist ceremonies. Things fall in and out of favour. But there’s one wedding trend that doesn’t seem to be going away. And that’s terrariums as wedding centrepieces.
We all know that flowers are a staple of any wedding. The bride and her bridesmaids each hold a bouquet and the groom and his groomsmen have flowers for their buttonholes and then there’s corsages for the mothers and any additional hair accessories for the bridesmaids.
And we haven’t even gotten to the reception.
With that in mind, the budget for flowers can get pretty huge.
And fresh flowers are incredibly expensive, don’t travel well and die very quickly after the wedding. Which is why many are abandoning large displays of fresh flowers for their reception and turning to terrariums as their wedding centrepiece.

Terrariums are fantastic wedding ideas because unlike fresh flowers, they can be prepped ahead of time, leading to less stress on the actual day. Terrariums filled with succulents, cacti and moss don’t need lots of care and attention to thrive, so you don’t have to worry about it being too hot or cold on the day. There’s no wilting here! Succulents are the perfect wedding plants if you want a stress-free day (or really, one less thing to worry about). And just because they’re low maintenance, doesn’t mean that terrariums are any less beautiful than traditional flowers.wedding centrepiece
One of the fantastic things about wedding terrariums is that you can simply hire them for the day and then send them back. Something that can’t be done with traditional flowers. These stunning little vessels can brighten your wedding decor and then can be sent back without a fuss.
Your wedding day is the most special day of your life and so attention to detail is key. To make your wedding centrepieces extra special, you can add personalisation to your terrariums in the form of a natural wooden round. You can choose whatever message you like to commemorate the special day which your guests could take home and keep as a memento. You can even add fairy lights to your terrariums to illuminate your tables come evening time.
