Lavender Succulent Wedding Ideas

Whether you are having a wedding in a city park, or an old barn, succulents are a fresh update for a rustic, simple outdoor wedding. Combine kraft and organic elements with a soft color palette of purples and blues. Flowing lavender bridesmaid dresses are perfectly paired with fresh lavender bouquets while miniature succulents make the perfect parting gift.

Featured Wedding Invitation: Splendid Succulent. See our full Wedding Invitation Collection here.

Beautiful hand-illustrated succulents bloom against a natural kraft backdrop. Names and details pop in elegant calligraphy-style fonts. The back of card is just as beautiful with a fully illustrated succulent design. A color palette of green and lavender is perfect for an outdoor wedding.


Succulents come in a variety of colors—from light green to deep purples. Mix them together and play with sizes big and small to create an artistic centerpiece. A rustic crate serves as the perfect vase to pull them all into one unified look. We love the pastel colors certain succulents come in. This lavender succulent really shines in this wedding inspiration board!


Mix sweet succulents into a neutral bouquet of peonies or roses. It’s a great way to incorporate the trend and make your wedding feel natural and organic. Succulents are also great in a bouquet because they add a lot of substance, making your bouquet feel lush. Sprinkle in some lavender sprigs for a green and purple color palette.


Lilac Gray bridesmaid dresses are a great way to introduce color into your wedding theme in an understated way. Don’t feel the need to go matchy-matchy. You can choose from a range of hues to suit every bridesmaid. Lavender bouquets are a fresh twist on tradition.


The gift that keeps on giving. Mini succulents make a great wedding favor because it’s something guests can keep forever long after the champagne has been popped and dancing shoes have been taken off. Wrap them in natural paper for an organic look.

Romantic and soft, this lavender color palette paired with sweet succulents is perfect for any rustic, outdoor affair.

Pink, Black and White Garden Wedding Ideas

Bold, vintage botanicals take a modern approach when paired with a simple black-and-white dot pattern. Playful yet sophisticated, this look is feminine without being over the top. A color palette of blushes, corals and watermelon reds add an energetic appeal to the dresses and floral centerpieces. Perfect for an outdoor fall féte or a spring soirée garden wedding.

A great way to make pink less girly and more sophisticated is by infusing black-and-white hues. Colors: dark coral, ecru, blush, black, ivory

Take a bow. Bow ties don’t have to be serious or stuffy. Have fun with a polka dot pattern. It’s an easy way to add a playful touch to otherwise traditional groom attire.

Peonies and zinnias bloom in deep reds, oranges and blush pinks. Jewel-tone berries and leaves add a rustic texture while a silver vase keeps things polished. If you’re going with a larger centerpiece, make sure to keep it low so that guests can still have visibility across the table.

Forget the matching bridesmaid dresses. Right now, the trend is maintaining the same color in a variety of shades. From pastels to jewel-tones, the look is cohesive but not boring. Similar bouquets give their wedding attire a unified look.

Black-and-white and dotted all over. White buttercream roses and black sugar pearls adorn this cupcake tower. This ties in beautifully with the bow-tie and invitation details.

Vintage yet modern. Playful yet chic. Ornate botanicals create a garden-inspired look that’s made to be coveted.
