Not to worry jackie t4701, I too love succulents! We are doing succulents as our favors/escort cards. They look great I think! I wanted to add succulents into our flower centepieces and bouquets but I already had them planned out so I didn’t want to change  it up too much.

Post some pics if you do use them. They really add a bit of intrest and modern flair!

I think they’re awesome! I haven’t decided on my floral arrangements yet but I just might include them.  The things you posted are gorgeous!

I love them too and have been debating whether or not I am talented enough to make a succulent wreath. 

I think the pics you posted are perfect for a modern, clean look.

That wreath is gorgeous!  I haven’t met with a florist yet, but does anyone know if they’re pricy?  I don’t want to have my heart set on them if they’re expensive.

jackie t4701– I actaully saw this

and thought, why don’t I do that! So I did. I bought inexpensive glasses that look like pots at Ikea. I bought the copper garden markers and the succlents from our garden store. Once the succelents were planted I affixed a label with our wedding monogram to the rim and planted the garden marker/table assignment into the little pot. Like so:

People can take them home at the end of the night. I liked the idea of having a living favor that can grow just like how myself and Fiance will grow in our marriage.

I love them! I just wonder, are they cheaper or more expensive than regular flowers? Or do you have to diy?

Love the wreath you posted, Derbybride! 🙂

I am also in love with succulents! Specifically, with the idea of having them as the favors/table cards. I love the idea of a favor that people can take home and grow!

One thing I’m a little worried about though, is that many of our guests are coming from out of town, some driving and many flying. Has anyone had any experience with using succulents as favors, and figuring out a way that guests will be able to transport them without having the dirt spill out everywhere when they travel home? Any ideas?

I love succulents too! For those of you using them as favors/place cards, are you ordering them through a florist or are you going to DIY? How much does this roughly cost?

Do you think succulents are appropriate for a modern AND urban wedding?
