Etsy Thursday: Plant Inspired Wedding

“Go Green” with this Plant Inspired Wedding

Sharing in the beautiful spirit of Spring and knowing that love is in bloom, this week’s Etsy Thursday provides inspiration for a plant infused wedding! Below you will see lots of creative Etsy wedding decor ideas for the use of succulents and plants. I personally have a little bit of a green thumb and love plants, so I think that this is an awesome idea for nature-loving couples that want to “go green” and include a bit of nature’s beauty in their marriage celebration.  I think you’ll fall in love with these beauties!

Inexpensive DIY Wedding Decorations


For all you DIY brides out there, did you know there are two inexpensive products that can add so many beautiful details to your wedding? Here are some ideas on how to use decorative tape and decorative stamps for a unique wedding look.

Decorative Washi Tape from Pretty Tape on Etsy

Decorative Washi Tape from Pretty Tape on Etsy



I love decorative tape and there are so many different types on the market now from fabric tape to paper tape to washi tape. One $4 roll of tape could do your whole wedding!

Use it to Embellish:

  • Centerpiece Vases
  • Envelopes (money envelopes for gift table or wedding invites)
  • Seating Chart
  • Candles
  • Guest Book
  • Paper Lanterns
  • Banners
  • Paper Garlands
  • Mason Jar Drinking Glasses
  • Wedding Cake Base
  • Wedding Favor Boxes
  • Serving Trays
  • Wine Bottles

Make it Different:

  • Mix a combination of 2 or 3 tapes together
  • Use pinking sheers to give the tape a scalloped edge
  • Cut into squares or use a paper punch and make circles or other shapes
  • Punch small holes into the tape for a decorative polka dot design


Lace stamp from mieryaw on Etsy

Lace stamp from mieryaw on Etsy



How gorgeous is this lace stamp above, and again, we are only talking a few dollars. If you are having a vintage wedding, it’s a necessity, but it will add a romantic feel to any wedding.

Use it to Embellish:

  • Wedding Favor Tags
  • Place Cards
  • Table Number Cards
  • Banners
  • Table Cloths & Runners (use fabric paint to stamp)
  • Envelopes (money envelopes for gift table or wedding invites)
  • Signage
  • Cupcake Picks
  • Wedding Programs
  • Menus
  • Paper Napkins
  • Drink Coasters
  • Backdrop Fabric (again, use fabric paint)

Make it Different:

  • Use metallic ink
  • Add glitter when ink is still wet
  • Only use parts of the stamp (as shown in photo)
  • Experiment by dipping in tea to get a vintage feel
  • Stamp over top of one image in a different color, off slightly to create a 3D effect

It is amazing how these two inexpensive products offer you so many possibilities to add all those unique finishing touches to your wedding. How many more can you think of?

WANT MORE UNIQUE WEDDING IDEAS? Then please see my ebook, 663 Must-Have Wedding Ideas, which also has tons of inexpensive and DIY ideas, available at my Etsy shop.

I’ll be back next Monday with more ideas….until thenGail.

Real Wedding: Gaby Ruiz & Jorge Marquez

I was hired by Gaby & Jorge to coordinate their wedding and make sure that all the details that this DIY bride and groom wanted were carried out seamlessly on their wedding day! I would definitely say that this was the most challenging wedding that I have coordinated simply because when they hired me, less than 2 months from their wedding date, they only had the venue secured. I assisted this couple in locating and securing their vendors, provided timelines and checklists to stay on schedule, listened to their vision of the wedding and provided additional inspiration, expertise, and ideas on how to best bring their wishes to reality on their wedding day within the short time frame and tight budget we had to work with. In order to make this the dream wedding that my clients wanted,  a lot of time and effort went into planning and coordinating this wedding prior to the day of, and I am happy to share that on September 2, 2012, this lovely couple shared wedding vows and expressed their love for each other in front of 170 of their family and friends at the Red Horse Barn!

This outdoor wedding turned out beautifully and I received many amazing compliments from the venue, vendors, guests, and the bride and groom regarding how lovely it turned out and how perfectly the day went! (Actually the venue and one of the resident vendors said that out of all the hundreds of weddings they had witnessed at the venue, this one was the best coordinated and planned, and that I was a pleasure to work with.Yay!) I can easily smile along with these two love birds because I was able to plan and coordinate a beautiful wedding for 170 people in less than 6 weeks!  Please take a look at this shabby-chic vintage-styled outdoor wedding held in Huntington Beach, CA.

DIY wedding? Free wedding printables!

Save some money and make your own paper suite (invitations, response cards, place cards, table numbers/names, favor tags, etc). If you lack the time and creativity here are some FREE wedding printables I found on Intimate Weddings website. (There are other printables available there as well.)

I love these creative place cards found on Martha Stewart Weddings website. (Click the pictures below to go to the site and download the free printables.)

Patterned placecards

Butterfly placecards

This oozes creativity…LOVE IT!


What’s In a Name?

Some guests are too shy to share their life stories. Help them bypass the small talk and go straight for the good stuff with introductory cards that reveal shared interests or personal triumphs.

Play It
When a guest slides out her place card (calligraph her name under our design), she’ll see an arrow pointing to the left with the name of the person seated there, plus an interesting tidbit (e.g., “Joel was a Connecticut tap-dancing finalist!”). A second arrow shares info on the person seated to her right.


Here are some lovely favor wraps you can DIY, courtesy of Martha Stewart:

Beautiful paper Dahlia favor wrap

Wedding Favor Cone

Heart box favors

Matchbook seeds favors
