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!

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.

Top Wedding Flowers 2013

According to there are ten flowers that will be on trend in 2013.  Before going to meet with your florist it is always good to have an idea of flowers you like and maybe more importantly what you don’t like.  I suggest looking in magazines and on-line and saving as many pictures of bouquets and centerpieces.  Many brides find that after saving the images they like, they see many of the same flowers in each of the pictures.  Whether you like lush and large arrangements or modern and simplistic you will probably see some of the flowers and plants you love in this list!
