If you’re planning to use succulents for your wedding this is the perfect resource for you. Find out where to get succulents for bouquets, boutonnieres, favors and centerpieces!
Succulents are a great floral choice for any wedding.
They are durable and won’t wilt if they don’t get water for a few days which means you can make arrangements ahead of time. They are also very popular right now which makes them a great wedding favor for guests. But…
Finding the right succulents, especially for favors, at a good price can be difficult if you don’t live close to a succulent nursery.
I’ve had a lot of people ask me where they can find succulents as well as small terracotta pots to use for succulent wedding favors. I also get asked a lot about where to buy cuttings to use for boutonnieres, bouquets, cake toppers, centerpieces, etc.
General Succulent Purchases for Weddings
There is a shop called The Succulent Source that really caters to people looking to use succulents as wedding favors as well as in bouquets, boutonnieres, favors and centerpieces.
If you want to use succulents but don’t want to go to very much effort, this is the place for you! Even if you want to put favors together yourself, the quality of these succulents is incredible for the price. Click here to shop their wedding collection.
Mountain Crest Gardens is another great option for purchasing sets of succulents for your wedding. You can see their selection by clicking here.
The Succulent Source makes everything extremely easy for you. You can buy a variety of 2″ succulents that are perfect for favors. If you have pots already picked out for them you can just buy the plants.
However, if you’d rather the favors almost ready to give away, you can order the succulents to come with votives, pails, and terracotta or ceramic pots. All you have to do is transfer the succulents from the plastic pot they are shipped in into their decorative pot!
You can purchase the succulents in small numbers (or just one) and then order as many as you need for the actual event. If you don’t see the exact number you want just send them a message and they’ll get you set up.
One of my favorite things about The Succulent Source is their incredible customer service. They’ve done this a lot so they realize the importance of having perfect plants on time and as requested.
If you want just rosette shaped succulents, no problem! They have sets that are just rosettes.
If you want specific colors of plants, just ask! They are happy to accommodate you as much as possible. You really can’t go wrong with The Succulent Source!
Succulents for Bouquets, Boutonnieres and Cake Toppers
If you’re looking to buy cuttings to create boutonnieres, bouquets or cake toppers, they have a great selection for you! Again, you can choose either a rosette only selection or a mixed variety. These cuttings are high quality and much cheaper than ordering from a florist!
If you need centerpieces for tables at your wedding or reception, you’ll want to visit the Succulent Salon online. Lois creates gorgeous centerpieces with succulents.
These succulent centerpieces are put together extremely well and arrive in perfect condition. You’ll love the succulents she combines!
Another fantastic and really unique option for succulent centerpieces are wine bottle planters. My friend Nicole of Looking Sharp Cactus creates some amazing succulent arrangements in wine bottles.
You can either buy the wine bottles as a DIY kit (you can also request to have them pre-assembled) or get the empty bottles and fill them with your own succulents. Whichever suits your fancy!
Her pre-made arrangements are put together extremely well and just need a tiny bit of “dusting” (the soil shifts a little during shipping so some ends up on top of the succulents so it just needs to be gently brushed or blown off) once they arrive before they’re ready to be displayed.
If you don’t have a wedding coming up, don’t worry! You’re sure to find some way to use these gorgeous succulents. They would work great for any sort of party including bridal showers, baby showers, birthdays, etc.
You could also purchase cuttings to create a succulent wreath, topiary ball or anything else you can think of! Be sure to check out the links and see the gorgeous collection of succulents that are available to you.
