Why Gift a Succulent?

Think about it. A little two-inch succulent in an adorable container that matches your wedding colors. But can also be used as place settings with name cards for guests. Not only can your local florists have them ordered and arranged ahead of time. But these little live mementos also are completely durable, do not wilt and require very little care. The variety of shapes, textures and hues succulents offer give you the freedom to match any table setting and you can custom tag them for that extra charm.

The allure of a succulent as wedding favor does not stop there. You have the option of having different bases for the succulents. Choose between glass votives shaped to suit your succulent. Tiny metallic pails painted to your liking, miniature terracotta or ceramic pots for an earthy feel or even rustically wrapped in burlap. The best part about it is they can be replanted in a new home where they can grow and bask in the sunlight on a window sill, a quiet reminder of the big day.

4. Gymnocalycium mihanovichii (Prickly Favors)

Nothing says ‘sculptural masterpiece’ more than a cactus. But why stop there? How about a cactus growing on a cactus?

Mutant cultivars of the Gymnocalycium mihanovichii are grafted on to the Hylocereus cactus, thus producing dark green stems with wildly colored heads. The cultivars mostly lack chlorophyll and this produces the red, orange, yellow, or pink heads. As a tiny, no-nonsense plant, this is one succulent we can stare at, all day.

There is a wide range of exceptional succulents that would complement any theme, mood, color, or setting as an impressionable gift for wedding guests. Succulents are more price-friendly as compared to ordinary flowers, especially when watching budget costs. Do-it-yourself couples can have fun putting together individual succulents into pots of their choice, while there are garden centers that can organize everything, freeing up valuable time. Succulents are pretty tolerant of most temperatures, and they take away the apprehension of receiving droopy flowers on the big day.
