16 Ways to Dazzle with Geodes at Your Wedding

Geodes are a stunning natural occurrence where crystal quartz formations develop inside hollow rocks. Agate is a similar-looking, colorful and patterned type of rock often used in conjunction with geodes, and is formed in lava or volcanic rocks. Lately, they have been forming in other ways: cakes, jewelry, nail polish, wall art, and more. We absolutely love how geodes are being used in art, food, and parties to add some color and sparkle! The beautiful crystals are basically begging to be used in your wedding. Here are some ideas for how you can include geodes as decorations, favors, foods, and more!

If you love color, sparkle, glitter, pizazz, or even just are looking for something different, consider using geodes in your decorations. They make beautiful escort cards – and if you write the table number on a piece of paper attached to the stone, guests can take them home and use them as paperweights, coasters, or bookends.

The escort cards and candle holders mentioned before make awesome favors, but there are other options too! Remember those geode-and-succulent centerpieces? If you put them in small containers, give those to your guests to take home. Better yet, take those hollowed-out geodes and plant the succulents directly in them! Air plants also work really well inside geodes, and you don’t need as big of a hole for them.
