If you’re looking for unique succulent wedding ideas for your reception, you’ve come to the right place! I’ve been an admirer of these sweet little plants ever since I spotted my first one. I like them because they’re small, so they take up little room, and they require very little care (so even people with more of a black thumb versus green can handle ‘em!) You may have seen succulents all over the wedding scene, especially in the past few months; these plants have become a permanent fixture in the wedding industry – and for good reason. As favors, succulents make an excellent option because they’re an eco-friendly gift to give (and, who wouldn’t want to receive a sweet plant to take home?) As centerpieces, they’re re-usable, so you can enjoy them in your home (and give them to friends and family) after the wedding is over. I’ve seen succulents used as centerpieces, favors, bouquets, boutonnieres, and even hair accessories. Read on to see some of our favorite succulent wedding ideas PLUS we’re answering a new ‘Ask Emmaline’ question sent to us from Marie. She asks, “Dear Emmaline, I love succulents, but can’t find anywhere near my home where I can buy them in bulk. Any suggestions?” Marie – we have a great solution for where to buy succulents in bulk… and it’s cheaper than you think! Read on to find out more…
Succulent Wedding Ideas
First, let’s take a look at the first of our findings: the succulent wedding bouquet. This is quite the statement piece!
1. Succulent Wedding Bouquet
2. Felt Succulents
This next one looks like the real deal, but is completely made of felt. How cute are these? I love them because they’re the succulents that last forever; and, they’re handmade!
3. Succulent Wedding Boutonniere
If you’re carrying a succulent wedding bouquet, you’ll want your groom to coordinate, too. This succulent boutonniere is one of the prettiest we’ve seen yet. I’m digging that striped ribbon, too.
4. Succulent Escort Cards
5. Succulent Wedding Invitations
I LOVE this wedding invitation spotted at Yes, Dear Studio. I like how it’s a more modern, colorful take on the succulent; the front image with your initials deserves to be framed after the wedding!
6. Succulent Wedding Terrarium Favors
This is a beach themed succulent favor featuring a terrarium. I’ve never seen anything like this! It’s made of hand-blown glass, too, so each piece is unique.
7. Succulent Wedding Cake Topper
Dress up your cake topper with these sugary, edible succulents! Amazing.
8. Succulent Wedding Hair Crown
This hair crown is perfect for the bohemian bride.
Where to Buy Succulents
Wondering where to buy succulents? You can buy them in bulk here! I haven’t purchased them personally from here, but if I was in the market for them this is where I’d buy. It has great reviews and is cost-effective: you can snag 20 succulents for around $24.99. Amazing!
