Geodes Are Having a Moment—Here's How to Incorporate Them Into Your Wedding
In case you haven't noticed, geodes are kind of a thing right now. Need some inspiration on how you can incorporate them into your wedding décor? Look no further. Whether you're planning a boho-chic bash or glamorous soiree, they'll add just the right amount of grandeur—incorporate as much or as little as you want.
Start With The Invitations
If you're going all-out geode, pick an invitation style that mimics the natural design of the rock as a way to introduce the theme to your guests without being too over the top. They'll get a taste of the décor and it leaves you with options to tie it all together at the reception.

Number Your Tables
Table numbers are the right time to splurge and use actual geodes as opposed to paper representations. Pick a color that matches your theme but is bright enough to stand out against the table linens.

Dress Up Your Table
Geode napkin rings add a natural touch to place settings, and the juxtaposition between the raw rock and soft linens make for an interesting design moment.

Inspire Your Centerpieces
If you're going for a vintage feel, grab your favorite books and add geode bookends to create unique centerpieces. And you can reuse them in your own home after the party.

Accent Any wall
If you're looking for a statement piece to use in your ceremony and reception, go with some wall art. A painting behind the altar will add some color to your first-kiss pictures, and it can be repurposed later at the reception. Think: super-fab cocktail bar décor.

Find an Edible Favor
Sending your guests home with chocolate is a great way to say thank-you, and when it matches the reception décor it's even better. (Bonus: How cute would these look styled on each guest's place setting?)
