Rustic Wedding Ring Box

What is a ring box? A wedding ring box is an alternative to a ring pillow, which is used as a vessel for holding your wedding rings until the exchange of vows.

While a traditional ring pillow can be used, many couples are choosing alternatives as a fun thematic touch. This rustic wedding ring box — today’s handmade-a-day pick — is one example. The box is handmade by Red Heart Creations and can be re-used after the ceremony as a safe place for holding your rings (if you’re cleaning or painting) or as a jewelry box.

35 Best Ideas for Succulents in Weddings

Hi, lovelies! Emma here and I’m crazy in love with succulents, especially lately. Aside from my front porch project involving succulents and planter boxes, I’ve been researching these pretties ever since I spotted these. My thumbs finally turned green this weekend (my hydrangeas are winning and my roses are alive and well, thank goodness), I really appreciate how hardy succulents are. Succulents require very little care, so even if you send favors home with guests and they aren’t great gardeners, you can rest assured they’ll still thrive. Plus, you won’t have to worry about succulents wilting through a hot humid wedding reception: they look great all the time!

To inspire you, we’re sharing thirty-five creative succulent wedding ideas. These finds are from all around the web, ranging from bouquets to boutonnieres to wedding decor — even invitations. We’ve found a mix of Real Wedding ideas along with handmade wedding finds. Check them out below along with helpful tips on where to buy succulents for DIY projects. Enjoy!
