Each guest received a three-inch succulent as a place card and a favor. Flat escort cards, custom-printed with each person’s name and table number in different ink colors (corresponding with their meal choice) were ordered from Etsy, then adhered to tiny green sticks and stuck in the soil. Connie spray-painted the containers gold, unpacked 280 bare root succulents, then repotted them all a week before the wedding to avoid watermarks on the containers. Kent and Connie planted and replanted the succulents a few times. “I knew this would be a lot of work but didn’t realize just how much work,” she says.
