I’ve always loved air plants, so I’m really into this look! Tillandsia are a type of Bromeliad (the same tropical family as pineapples), commonly called air plants, that don’t require soil to grow. They’re low maintenance, as they only require a light misting every couple of weeks and can survive pretty much anywhere in a house. They’ve started turning up everywhere recently, including wedding websites. There are many different varieties of air plants, so you can create your own unique look with them as well. Here are some ideas:

Bromeliad Bouquets

This wedding band for him reflects that same concept.

Air plants can also work as inexpensive conversation starters for table centerpieces. The plants themselves are interesting, unique and require little in the way of display. Using plants instead of cut flowers is an easy way to “green” your wedding, too.

Here are some beautiful matching diamond wedding bands that are also unique and look great!
