Succulents are having a major moment and we are loving them! Not only are they utterly gorgeous but super easy to take care of and grow – that’s the kind of plants we like! How amazing would it be to start growing your own now and have them for your big day! You can incorporate succulents into so many aspects of your wedding day from decor to the bouquet to the wedding cake, here are our favourite ways!

BRIDAL BOUQUET Choose succulents to add a unique element to your bridal bouquet – either let the succulents shine as the main focus of the bouquet or choose smaller varieties to incorporate with additional flowers. For colour we love them mixed with dusty pink roses, hydrangeas and eucalyptus leaves! There are so many options to discuss with your florist so try to bring images with you to show them what you love!

BRIDESMAID BOUQUETS For the ‘maids pull the look together using similar tones to their dresses. Different succulents have differing accent tones so use the right ones to ensure a cohesive look to the bridal party.

BOUTONNIERES For the groom and groomsmen again keep the succulent theme strong with cute additions to classic boutonnieres. Keep it simple with additional greenery or choose to match colours with the bridesmaids!

VENUE DECOR Incorporating succulents into your venue decor could not be easier! Choose alternative hanging baskets like candle holders and add floral displays to them for a incredible ‘gram worthy showstopper! Want to hide some posts and pillars – add gorgeous floral displays and no one will notice them!

Have fun with your venue decorad incorporate natural elements to the entrance, stairways etc. Also make your own terrariums using lanterns filled with flowers and succulents to be used as decor pieces throughout and a pretty option for collecting cards from guests!

TABLESCAPES Add succulents to centrepieces to make for really cute and fun displays. Succulents look great in rustic boxes, with natural elements like wood as well as with metal pieces – just choose the right one for your special day!

THE WEDDING CAKE How amazing are these cakes! Choose to add succulents to your cake for a very unique look that is sure to wow your guests!

WEDDING FAVOURS Allow your guests to bring home some of the magic of your special day with succulent wedding favours! Create a cute table with signage for guests to collect their own succulent or leave them at their place setting with a cute note from the bride and groom! If you have time and the capacity to grow your own this is a super cheap way to do favours as you can buy a few succulents and grow as many as you need from them!
