Even though I'm married I always enjoy looking at wedding florals. There are so many great ideas for bouquets, centerpieces and party favors. It seems succulents are taking a permanent place in weddings these days and for good reason. They are extremely durable and will last for days, if not weeks, before they need care.
Today I wanted to share with you some great succulent wedding favor ideas. Below you'll find 5 different ideas, all for $5 or less per favor. First off, I want to show you how to make these wood or agate stone and succulent favors.
- Succulent cuttings
- Wood slices or Agate stones
- Reindeer moss
- Glue (I prefer this floral glue, but you could also use hot glue or tacky glue)
These are so simple to make! Start by putting some glue on the wood where you want the moss to be. Then, add glue to the succulent cutting you'd like to use.
You can do these favors with wood slices, agate stones, or anything else that matches your wedding decor. My personal favorite are the agate stones. The colors are so bright and fun, perfect to pair with a group of bright succulent cuttings.
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.
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!
