Discover, manage, and track all of your vendor communication, contracts, and timelines in one place.


- An assortment of potted mini succulents
- A collection of vintage teacups or decorative pots
Before you get to planting, you'll need to work on your teacup collection! We suggest giving yourself a couple of months to scour flea markets or sites like Etsy and eBay to stock up on cups or small vessels. If you aren't looking to go the vintage route, check out home stores like Anthropologie and West Elm. When it comes time to shop succulents, look to your local florist or home and garden center, or buy in bulk online.


Once you have your materials, transfer each succulent and its soil into one of your cups. A large spoon will help limit the mess as you make the move.
If you'd like these crafty keepsakes to work double-duty as escort cards, attach a small tag to each cup with the guest's name and table number. For a sentimental touch, add a sweet personal note on the back of the tag.
These eco-friendly favors are on-trend and easy to make. Plus, you can assemble them up to a week before your wedding. DIY doesn't get much better than that!
