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!

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.

Southwest Wedding Style

This year is all about prints, prints, and more prints!  Brides are choosing prints like chevron, polka dots, and stripes to be their wedding theme.  Some of the more unique prints are Aztec and Ikat prints that are great inspiration for a Southwest themed wedding.  Just looking at the colors in these unique prints can be the foundation for your wedding colors and decor.  If you love the bold colors, have a bohemian style and love unique prints then a Southwest wedding might be a perfect wedding theme for you!

Invitations are a great way to introduce your guests to your theme so these Aztec inspired invitations are perfect for a Southwest wedding!

To stay with the theme of the wedding the bride has to compliment her own wedding theme.  As a bride, consider a bohemian look and style to best match this theme.  I love this bride’s feather earrings and belt.

I think this Aztec inspired ceremony background is so unique and graphic!  Plus this couple used southwest rugs for guests to sit on at the ceremony instead of chairs.

For the flowers, use plants like cactus and succulents that are naturally found in the Southwest.  Succulents look beautiful in bouquets and make great boutonnieres.
