Okay, first order of business: geodes are cool. They make great bookends, they make great earth science projects (hey, elementary school), and they make incredible wedding decor.
Geode Place Settings: Radiant Orchid may have been last year's color, but that's not stopping us from dreaming about these gorgeous geode place settings now. Now we just need to figure out where those plates came from. Don't worry - as soon as we figure it out, we'll let you know.
DIY Ceremony Backdrop: While we're on the subject, this huge geode-inspired ceremony backdrop (from the same shoot) is incredible. Just think how well that long white dress is going to pop against this non-traditional background.
Gold Table Numbers: There's not much to say about these hand-lettered gold geode table numbers except that we want them in all the weddings.
Fancy Cake Toppers: Who knew that Southwestern wedding details and geode cake toppers would be a match made in heaven? Fortunately, this bride did.
Unique Hanging Installation: We're currently dreaming about making this gorgeous green agate slice hanging installation (originally created by La Boheme Events) ourselves. The simple slice and string idea would be a great DIY for hands-on brides to tackle.
Interactive Wedding Favors: A definite two-for-one deal, these geode wedding favors are a unique gift for guests to take home and an awesome way to provide some unique entertainment during cocktail hour or while you and your spouse are out and about with your photographer.
Simple Cake Toppers: This sweet two-tier white cake and its accompanying stack of geodes are proof that decor (whether it includes crystalline rocks or not) doesn't have to be extravagant to be completely elegant. Consider us smitten.
Agate Slice Escort Card: These gold handwritten agate slice name cards would be beautiful at a wedding of any size. Tuck them away at individual seats for guests to discover their own spot or set them out on a table near the entrance and add the table numbers to each "card."
"You're A Gem" Favors: Let your guests know exactly what you think of them with a sweet thank you sign and some extra-pretty geodes like the ones above.
Purple Wedding Invitations: These purple and white invitations channel geode vibes across every element from RSVP cards to envelope liners — and the result is stunning.
Styling Inspiration: Sometimes the best place to put your ring for that detail shot is right in the center of your favorite geode. Case in point.
Elegant Place Settings: This gorgeous place setting is just the place for a small slice of agate. The addition of the stone (which has its own dose of gold sparkle) makes for an unexpected but beautiful pairing of elegant details and natural elements.
Geode Centerpieces: If in doubt, piling gorgeous geodes and crystals in among your favorite thrifted decor is always a wedding win.
