Succulents can be a fantastic addition to your wedding! Although not a flower, succulents are plants that are a quite stunning and interesting way to enhance your wedding flowers. Growing in popularity, succulents are a perfect match for wedding because of their unique characteristics. Succulents are plants that can retain a high amount of water and hold that water for long periods of time (which I guess is the reason mine are still alive even though I have not watered them in a while)! They can also survive in mostly all climates. These are particularly great attributes to have for a wedding because they can with stand hot and cold climates without worrying about wilting or drying out which you do have to worry about with say a hydrangea or tulip.
Perhaps the best part of using succulents in your wedding is that you can keep them and put in your house and with the proper watering and care, they can last until your 20th wedding anniversary…SERIOUSLY!! My in-laws have had a jade plant for 15 years and it has tripled in size since it started!! Unlike preserving a bouquet of flowers, it would keep growing like the love you and your new husband have for each other! What a fantastic way to have a memory of your wedding day with you each day when you are home.
Stunning and perfect for an upcoming Spring wedding!
This would be a perfect winter bouquet!
What an AWESOME favor idea since your guests can actually keep these and use them in their house or office!
Beautiful way to incorporate succulents into the reception centerpieces!
Beautiful and Vibrant!
I hope you enjoyed the beauty and variance that these plants can lend to a wedding as much as I do!
Do you know what a succulent is? It is a truly wonderful plant that comes in shades of green and purple. This small plant is showing up in weddings everywhere and gives a simple arrangement texture and dimension. It may be the perfect addition or even theme for your upcoming wedding. Here are some of my favorite ways you can incorporate these adorable plants in to your wedding!
One if the most common ways to incorporate succulents is in your bouquet. They look great with bright colored flowers and gorgeous in simple bouquets.
Succulents are perfect for the guys boutonnieres as well!
They even look great in the brides or bridesmaids hair!
My favorite way to use succulents is for place cards. They also can double as a great favor for guests.
Of course succulents look beautiful in the wedding centerpieces. You can choose to accent the centerpieces with a few succulents or have centerpieces only made with different types of plants and succulents.
Don’t forget about accenting the cake with succulents!
