If you type in “rustic weddings” into Google or Pinterest, you are sure to get quite a few results. The rustic wedding trend has been very popular in the last few years. What makes rustic weddings great is that you can tailor the decor to your personal tastes, and what better way to do that than the addition of air plants?
Whether your wedding is being held in a barn, church, or other venue, air plants can add that natural rustic touch to the festivities. Air plants can add visual interest and natural textures to your head table, bar carts or tables, and guest tables. Incorporate them into the centerpiece design or scatter them randomly around your venue. You can find xerographica plants and air plant kits on our website that can help you get started.
The bouquet is an important part of the wedding day, and air plants can make your bouquet that much more special! As you can see from the photos below, the elegant xerographica air plant helps create a stunning bouquet, and one that you can continue to grow and display after your wedding day!
Air plants lend well to use in boutonnieres due to their compact size and versatility. Below the floral designers created beautiful greenery rich boutonnieres and used an ionantha air plant in the photo on the left, and a small streptophylla plant in the photo on the right. These add the perfect rustic touch to the Groom's lapel.

Use them in unusual ways around your venue, like a greenery swag adorned with large xerographica plants or air plant terrariums placed around your reception space.
