These rustic metal plant stands are perfect for an outdoor or garden themed wedding……although I have used them for a very earthy and elegant themed wedding where the colors were brown, green, ivory and champagne! I use them to frame the ceremony location, on either side of the head table, or at the beginning of your aisle. They have some weight to them so they can take a very tall and big arrangement without being top heavy. I use them often at St. Clements Castle at the river side. The wind just howls through that location and these have no problem standing since the wind can move through them.
