If you’d like to give something a little more permanent to your friends and family, you can give them arrangements in small terra cotta pots, cute pails or glass votives.

You can get a set of succulents from Mountain Crest Gardens that comes with either pots or pails. They are adorable! Plus, they are quick to assemble.

Just brush off the succulents, gently remove the succulent plug from the tray, and insert it into the pot or pail. You can also add some twine or ribbon to add a little more personal touch.

To care for the succulents on wood slices your guests can wet the moss every week or so. They can last for several weeks this way.

They can also remove the succulent and moss and plant them in small terra cotta pots or something else if they’d like. The succulent will last longer this way and they can follow the general care recommendations for succulents.

This post has great ideas for wedding favors using succulents! Plus you can buy everything you need in one place!

The succulents in pails or votives can also be kept for several weeks. Simply pour a tiny bit of water in the pot, just enough to get the soil wet. Then wait until the soil has dried completely before watering again.

Your wedding guests are sure to love these simple favors and they don’t take much effort to put together. The great thing is you can make them several days in advance, even a week if you need to.

Plus, if you have any left over (although they’ll be so popular you likely won’t) you can use them to start your own succulent collection!

Cassidy, Your website is addicting!! I’ve found myself on here know for several hours and was originally just going to take a quick peek! My daughter is getting married in August 2016 and wants to use succulents in her wedding. We are trying to propagate them, but wondering if we really have time for them to grow. We live in Minnesota, so it isn’t warm enough out yet to put the outside. I have them sitting in a window. Do you think we have time for them to grow big enough to use in arrangements, bouquets, wedding-favors, etc?

Is there anything along the lines of the succulent source available in the UK? My and my partner want to use small succulents as wedding favours. It would be great to find somewhere which could supply us with the stuff we would need 🙂
