Pastel Succulent Wedding Invitation Set

When cacti and succulents started showing up on the wedding scene, I admit that the look didn’t really do much for me. As with everything, though, styles come and go and what I like at one time I dislike at another. Case in point: 90s bangs. Such is the case with succulent weddings.

Succulents are plants that have some parts that are thickened and fleshy, usually to retain water in arid climates or soil conditions. Succulents are often grown as ornamental plants because of their striking and unusual appearance. The habitats of these water preserving plants are often in areas with high temperatures and low rainfall, which make them perfect for use on a hot spring or summer wedding day. In horticultural use, the term succulent regularly excludes cacti but I’ll be including them here.

Some of the most beautiful centerpieces and bouquets I’ve seen have consisted of succulents. There are just so many varieties of cacti and succulents to choose from too! You can even use them for double-duty purposes by having a single cactus act as a place setting and wedding favor all in one. Plus, with a variety of pretty flowering cacti on all your tables, you also have a lot of decorating done for you. The individual cactus or succulent can be planted in a small clay pot with sand and then topped off with decorative pea gravel. Then just stick a place card in amongst the stems or glue it onto a stick and plant it in the sand with the cactus for a unique look. Since these pots will require very little watering, these combination place card holder/wedding favors can be made well ahead of time and stored until the big day. Get the Bridesmaids together and go to town having a girls’ night while you whip these up.

I also love the versatility of using cacti and succulents for a wedding. The colors of the various plants can either be soft and romantic, or more vibrant. Some of the succulents, like the Stonecrops, Dudleya, Echeveria, and Aeonium have an almost dusty, pastel look to them which would be great for a spring or summer wedding using neutral shades of taupe, beige or tan with white, peach, sage green, blush pink, smoky plum, and lavender, like the wedding suite I’ve designed, or you can use brighter flowering cacti with bold yellow, pink, or orange flowers as found on Rebutia plants for a late summer or fall wedding. Begonias and Orchids are also succulents, so adding them to your tables by themselves or as part of a larger centerpiece would be stunning. For a really rustic look, hollow out the top of a log that will fit on each of your tables and then fill it with varieties of succulents, orchids, and some candles and really wow your guests with your ingenuity. These could also be made up well ahead of time and brought to your venue the day before the wedding. They would also be a beautiful take-home gift to someone from each table. Here is a link to a gallery of succulents for more inspiration: http://succulent-plant.com/thumbnails.html

The deeper greens of an aloe plant, or the soft grayish green of some varieties of Agave would pair well with burgundy, aubergine, deep red, and deep purple tones. Coral, orange, yellow, and lots of shades of blue would also go nicely with succulents, as would a pink color palette. I’m actually hard-pressed to think of a color scheme that couldn’t be paired with some variety of succulent or cacti.

I also like the use of watercolor design elements with the succulent trend. I think it works very well, especially if you are wanting to have more subdued colors in all your wedding details.

Choosing to use succulents in your upcoming wedding would also work very well with one of the modern wedding trends of 2017: incorporating copper or rose gold metallics to your theme. Using copper edged glass lanterns or terrariums filled with succulents and candles would be an easy way to blend in some copper elements.

As you can see, I opted for a softer, more romantic looking wedding stationery suite for my succulents wedding design. It features a pale sandy peach background with a faux craft paper look and a bracket shape text area in white, with a peach color inner border. Along the top, there is a hanging garland of green, pink, and blue succulents. The bottom and back of the wedding invitation and other cards has groupings of succulents in shades of smoky plum purple, pink, coral, peach, green, lavender, and blue. I’ve used green and smoky blue font colors with modern typography layout that also features green arrows as decorative elements for added style.

Purple Silver Wedding Invitation Set | Joined Hearts Jewel

Purple Silver Wedding Invitation Set - Joined Hearts Jewel
Purple Silver Wedding Invitation Set – Joined Hearts Jewel
There are so many possible wedding themes to choose from that it’s hard to pick a favorite, so in this post I will be focusing on an always popular color theme that can be used year-round – an elegant purple and silver wedding invitation set.

Elegant weddings are always in fashion and many people like to go very upscale with their once-in-a-lifetime wedding. Adding glitz and glamour to your wedding stationery and decor is so much easier to do now than just a short time ago. The Internet offers so many resources and shopping sites that you won’t have to look very hard to find everything you could possibly ever want to buy or DIY to create your perfectly glamorous, elegant wedding.

Purple Silver Joined Hearts Wedding Menu Favor TagsThe color purple has always been associated with nobility, royalty, and prestige. It can also symbolize mystery, magic, power, and luxury, so using it as one of your wedding colors is an excellent choice. A deep, rich shade of purple like the one shown in this wedding suite will add drama to your stationery and wedding decor. Metallics are also very popular elements to use for weddings, so pairing silver with the deep purple will create a truly breath-taking look.

I created this romantic and glamorous purple and silver wedding invitation suite using a simulated metallic purple look gradient over a simulated silver foil look border. I also added on a deep purple printed on ribbon with an image of a pair of diamond jewel and faux glitter joined hearts buckle brooch to add to the romance and elegance. The printed on purple colored ribbon takes all the fuss out of having to wrap and tie ribbons on yourself and it also allows you to have the look of embellished wedding invitations without the big price tag or all the mess from real glitter.

The front of the glitzy purple silver wedding invitation has the names of the bride and groom in an elegant cursive font. If you prefer, the names can go on the top portion and the bottom can have a Bible verse or a poem such as the popular verse “This day I will marry my best friend, the one I laugh with, live for, dream with, love”.

Purple Silver Joined Hearts Jewel Wedding Save the Date CardThe back of the glamorous purple silver wedding invitation has silver monogram detailing at the top, along with an ornate silver scroll frame. Depending on what wording you choose, there may be room to add on reception details and/or RSVP information which would cut down on enclosure cards, allowing you to possibly splurge on ice pearl paper and silver lustre envelopes to match. Or for a VERY upscale look, contact me about double thick papers which would be so gorgeous for this design!

Of course, if you do want to send out a full wedding stationery package with multiple enclosure cards, I created several different sized inserts that you can use for RSVP, accommodations, directions, etc. There are also matching address labels and envelope seals that you can use to dress up the envelopes with.

There are quite a number of matching pieces in this elegant purple and silver faux foil wedding suite, including favor tags and stickers, thank you cards, place cards, escort cards, and menu. I’d be happy to add any other items you might need, as well.

I also posted a photo wedding save the date card in this same purple and silver floral design which can be used for an engagement announcement or as a save the date card to announce your big day!

Burlap Leaves Rustic Fall Wedding Invitation Set

Rustic Fall Wedding Invitation Set - Burlap, Leaves and wine ribbon
Rustic Autumn Burlap and Leaves Wedding Invitation Set

There are so many possible wedding themes to choose from that it’s hard to pick a favorite. Narrowing down the wedding date to a season can certainly help in your decision. In this post, I will be featuring a design for the autumn season – a rustic fall wedding invitation set.

Rustic weddings continue to be very popular and one of the easiest ways to get the rustic look is to incorporate burlap in your wedding stationery and decor. You won’t have to look very hard online to find everything you could possibly ever want to buy or DIY to create your perfect rustic fall wedding.

The obvious color choices for an autumn wedding include the rich fall colors of the changing leaves, like burnt orange, red, rust, gold, yellow, and brown. I chose a deep burgundy wine color for this rustic burlap wedding invitation and matching items because so many other fall colors pair so well with it. It is a great color for use with the wedding party attire, the centerpieces and bouquets, and the decor.

I created this rustic burlap and fall leaves wedding suite using a simulated brown burlap texture with a simulated aged paper overlay with burnt edges. The printed on wine colored ribbon takes all the fuss out of having to wrap and tie ribbons on yourself and it also allows you to have the look of embellished wedding invitations without the big price tag.

I added another printed on golden yellow twine bow and images of assorted dried leaves in rich fall colors of red, orange, gold, and rust.

The front of the burlap and leaves autumn wedding invitation has the popular verse “This day I will marry my best friend, the one I laugh with, live for, dream with, love” on it, but that can be changed to have a Bible verse or the names of the couple, or “Fall in Love”, or whatever you would like there. The back of the rustic fall wedding invitation has ample room to add on the reception details and RSVP info too, making this a very affordable design to use for your rustic autumn wedding. Use the money you save from buying extra wedding inserts to upgrade to felt paper for a lovely texture that works great with the burlap look!
