Green Succulent Themed Wedding w/Succulent DIY Projects

Succulents are beautiful, colorful, and easy to care for - perfect for your wedding day & for your guests to take home. And they can do triple duty at your reception as decor, table numbers, & favors.

For those who love succulents as much we do, here is the best & most unique succulent related wedding decor along a few amazing D.I.Y. projects.

The photo to the left is exactly what you can do if you put your mind to something while holding a hot glue gun - paper succulents created with the Tutorial for 7 Paper Succulents on LiaGriffith.com.


And if you have a green thumb succulent spheres are another amazing option, although you will need to get them ready a year ahead of time.

The full D.I.Y. project to create these beautiful indoor gardens is available at the Drought Smart Plants blog in the post; Punctuate your Garden with a Succulent Sphere.

You can also create a beautiful succulent wreath following the instructions on Better Homes & Gardens. And for the very craft check out this great post on Needles & Leaves to make a D.I.Y. Succulent Crown.
If you're planning on cake or cupcakes check out these great D.I.Y. projects on creating sugar succulents including; How to Make Wired Sugar Succulents from My Delectable Treats blog, an insane guide on creating cupcakes that look *exactly* like actual potted succulents from Pixel Whisk, & the Mini Succulent Tutorial (perfect for cupcakes!) from Man Bakes Cakes on Facebook.

Opting for live succulents in cakes is also an option, and you get them them ready the same way you do as for a bouquet. And the post How To Make a Succulent Bouquet from P. Allen Smith can show you how.

And for those who aren't that crafty, like myself, or if you're just too busy with other projects right now, you'll love these handmade products we found on Etsy.

Featured below, left to right & top to bottom, are a Clay Bridal Wreath featuring Succulents, Peonies, & Freesia from LoveClayFlowers that retails for $65, a Printable Succulent Wedding Invitation Suite from DivART selling for $22, and this awesome Succulent Hair Pin from FORvHER that sells for $12.07 that would make a great bridesmaids gift.
