I think brides are more often looking at alternatives to flowers these days. I did a search for favors on etsy today and found this great option for favors or even centerpieces. Succulent Designs offers these amazing wreaths, but my favorite are the tiny succulents in the containers perfect for favors. I love how they look all lined up. They would look great on a long table with a row of these as centerpieces and then every guest would also get to take one home as a favor. You could fill it in with some lovely white candles or a few larger arrangements of succulents. I love when things can be used in 2 ways!
A bit about the shop owner: “I have been an avid container gardener for over 35 years, with a particular passion for designing with succulents. Now that I am retired and our children are grown and out of the nest, I’m blessed to be with my husband of 30 years and our beloved dogs on a stunning piece of acreage in the mountain foothills in our great southwest. I grow hundreds of succulent plants, sedum, cacti, and herbs here, and have been designing and creating succulent wreaths for a number of years. It is such a joy to be able to supplement our retirement income with something that brings me joy and fulfullment, and to bring beauty to others as well. Thank you so very much for visiting!
“If you’re having a succulent-themed wedding, I have packages available at discounted prices that can include wreaths or large dish garden plants, plants for favors, bouquets, corsages, boutinnieres, and if you have other ideas, let me know! I can also accomodate bridal or baby showers, corporate gifts, or just any special occasion. Drop me a convo, I’d love to meet you!”
