Succulent wedding favors were a feature in our vintage style wedding. This is one of the most important “personal touches” that you can put into your wedding decor, and every guest will love them.
Thanks to a venue cancellation we jumped at the chance to book a gorgeous mansion leaving me only 3 months to plan. The entire event was decorated virtually by me since it was 200 miles away.
The 3 month planning window and decorating that morning was a bit stressful, but it all worked out!
Succulent Wedding Party Favors
Labels on your galvanized buckets are totally optional but it was fun looking around to see what I could affix to the front of each bucket. I found a printable that complemented the style of my invitations. In my case, Paper & Dime (on Etsy) offers this download for only $2.95.
I realized the labels were too big as-is, so I reduce them on my printer to 50% of the original size, then they fit perfectly on my pails. Perfect for Mod Podging onto the pails.
I made a few prototypes prior to the wedding using plants from Lowe’s. I was trying to decide if any additional embellishments were needed. Here is what I came up with – you can choose what works for you.
In case you’re wondering on the exact names of the succulents I used…here you go.
Be sure to click around for vintage style wedding and party planning ideas, this 3 month planning window made me wish I could have done a few things differently, but overall I learned that “less is more” and it’s better to under decorate than overdo it!
Best of luck as you plan our own wedding!
