Bamboo Themed Wedding
Posted: Apr 16, 2009 1:39 AM

Alright so, my wedding started out with no theme. The only thing that we had was colors (red, white, and silver) but, as things went along we ended up with a bamboo theme (inspired by the bamboo arch that my fiancee is building). (We have lots of bamboo growing near us)

This is my Centerpiece (I made it myself, real bamboo stems with leaves and a silk flower )

centerpiece

This is my cake (Also made it myself...this is the practice one, There is real bamboo and real leaves on it)
cake

The Arch isn't finished yet but it is going to be awesome.
Alright, here is my question....What other ways can we incorperate bamboo into the wedding?
I have already made the boquets (mine and the bridesmaids) and the flower girl baskets (no ring bearers). What else can I do?

You can get a couple of large urns or containers and use those really long, thick rods of bamboo for sort of a zen look to emphasize areas like your cake table, dance floor, entryway, etc. Some lumber yards, garden centers, florists warehouses, or home decor places have this bamboo, or you can buy it online. You could do lucky bamboo favors, or use bamboo as a motif on your printed materials (invites, programs, menus, etc.)

I like your theme!

You could possibly work in other plants or vegetation as decorations so you dont' feel overwhelmed by bamboo. Handing out live baby pandas as favors would also be pretty memorable.

I like the idea of bamboo :) Love your centerpiece & cake too! I haven't been to a bamboo theme wedding. So, i think it is very cute and unique. Are u going to have place card? I think this bamboo placecard holder is cute too and match your theme. What do u think?

Aww cute theme! You could use bamboo placemats or coasters (like these ones: http://www.beau-coup.com/natural-bamboo-coaster-favors.htm). You could also get a bamboo room divider to place in a corner (maybe the gifts table?) or you could use bamboo steamers to cook rice. Maybe even include bamboo shoots into your menu.

Ok am I the only one who noticed what Rose said?

I'm still laughing about handing about baby pandas. It makes me think of the panda express commercials. If you gave a real baby panda I think I would def come to you wedding.
I feel like a kid. Pinch me. This kind of love certainly can't be real. Oh wait, it is :)

Zen was mentioned above, so maybe you can incorporate some sort of flute or pan pipes? I'm not sure about the technicalities of making a flute, but I'm guessing for presentational purposes you could just drill holes into the bamboo?

All the best,
