11 Unique Ways Agate Can Rock Your Wedding

So we are going to science nerd out for a second before we introduce our latest roundup of unique wedding ideas. We know geodes are ever so popular right now, but we wanted to share another type of rock to make your special day equally awesome. Because did you know that agates and geodes are actually two different kinds of rocks? Yep, they are! Geodes have a hollow cavity with rocky crystal clusters while agate stones have smooth bands of marble-looking layers. Geodes can have some agate patterns inside of them, but overall, agates aren't geodes. We have seen this term be interchangeable when it comes to these neat details in wedding publications, so we wanted to set the record straight and inspire you on the path of rocky gorgeousness with a dash of geology know-how.

With all sorts of colors, shapes, and sizes to choose from, we are obsessed with the versatility that agates have for any modern or boho wedding day. From smooth slices for escort cards to hanging agates for backdrops, the romance of geological wonder is alive and well! Curated from fellow wedding editor friends, we hope you'll rock out your celebration with a few of these unique ideas that are definitely not from the Stone Age.
