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!

Painted Mason Jar Centerpiece

Good morning! It’s Friday, can you believe it? It feels like I was just talking about how fast last week went by. We are kicking off this beautiful Friday morning with a painted mason jar centerpiece spotted over at Beach Blues, today’s #HANDMADEADAY find! When it comes to painted mason jars, Missy of Beach Blues is the expert. She has some of the prettiest painted mason jars I’ve ever seen — and a bunch of color combinations to top it off. If you’re looking for a color palette, I recommend checking out her ready-made designs where she has tons of pretty shades (even ombre). In this find, she’s paired together a light pink and white mason jar set, tied them together with a personalized ribbon, and filled them with elegant flowers. It’s an easy-to-do centerpiece that ties in well with a shabby chic, romantic, or classic wedding theme. See the photos below!
