I also like the rocks idea, maybe some white pebbles?

I like the rocks idea, too. Or coloured glass. Depends what your theme is.

Date twin!  And I was totally going to say river rocks, too.  I’ve got them all over the place in  my decor.  (We’re getting married by a river.)

Pebbles and stones are a good idea. 

I can see your feet on the right 🙂

I like the pebble idea.

Fresh fruit might also look good. Lemons, limes etc.

I like the white pebbles idea….I think it will really “set off” the succulents.

I was going to suggest ItWasntMe’s idea! Poke them into the soil and arrange some small white river rocks around them. Greedy succulents!

if you want live flowers, can you “segment” them? meaning the succulent in its own container within the wine box with live flowers surrounding and then you can cover the seams with dirt or river rocks or something? same look, but separately contained so no water stealing.

I think white rocks would be super pretty as well.  Are you doing table numbers?  You could get larger rocks to put on top of the white pebbles with the table numbers painted on them.  Or you could spray paint the white rocks to be any color you want.  I’ve seen some tutorials on Pinterest where they spray painted beans different colors and that looked really neat.

They look beautiful, btw!  So green and shiny and healthy!

@Eight6Eleven:  This! A combo of white rocks and the aqua tubes with white flowers in them will looks great and give you the look you want.

Go to an aquarium store with the centerpiece.  See if they sell assorted colored rocks, colored pebbles, etc (what you would buy to put in a home fish tank).  I think this would work, and on each corner, add a gerber or regular daisy with aqua tubes.  You may want to mix mulch or wood chips as well (at a plant supplier).

Around the perimeter of each centerpiece, glue on rustic ribbon, which you could get pretty cheap at any craft, discount or 99 cents store.

I like the rocks idea, but just to throw some other things out there: you could buy more small white flowers and plant them in the boxes a couple of days beforehand so that they don’t have time to die, you could make cute signs or pics of you and your Fiance or old family wedding photos on sticks and stick them on either side of the succulent (could tie a ribbon on the stick to make it more cute), beach glass would be pretty…
