DIY Wedding Favor Inspiration: Succulents

DIY wedding favors are the perfect way for a bride to add a touch of her personality to a wedding reception. We love favors that coordinate with the theme of the wedding, whether rustic, modern, outdoors, or seasonal.

For this easy DIY wedding favor project, we chose to complement a trendy wedding theme – rustic elegance that is perfect for fall! With succulents popping up everywhere from bouquets to center pieces, the hardy plant makes for a fantastic wedding gift for your guests, especially when paired with a chic wedding gift tag.

Steps:

  1. Fill the base with sand, and arrange the succulent cuttings. Use 2-3 varieties of succulents for the best look – we recommend pairing contrasting heights and widths!
  2. Delicately place the mini bell jar onto the base. You may want secure with invisible tape for transportation purposes.
  3. Attach the gift tag sticker to a piece of paper, and cut around the border. Using about 10 inches of twine, wrap the handle of the bell jar several times, and then tie on the gift tag.

Real Wedding: Grace and Onwing

One of our stylish staffers recently attended this stunning wedding between Grace and Onwing at the Four Seasons Resort in Wailea, Maui on April 17, 2009. The intimate celebration included 40 guests who traveled to Hawaii for the event. Photographers Bill Stockwell and Scott Drexler of Photos on Maui took these beautiful photos.

We love the bursts of vibrant red and the luxurious elegance found in every detail! They even used our wedding menus to complete their sophisticated look.

Real Weddings: A Simple Affair at the Little Church on the Lane

Today’s Real Wedding was submitted by photographer Critsey Rowe.  The simple and elegant wedding of Amy, a neonatal ICU nurse, to Aaron, a North Carolina highway patrol officer, took place at the Little Church on the Lane in North Carolina. The event planner was Ivy Robinson (“Whose Wedding is it Anyway?”).

What is Amy & Aaron’s advice to engaged couples? “Don’t worry about every single detail, because the day goes by so fast that you are not going to be focused on the details but on your new spouse.”
