Hello! Our last blog was a fun one–it was all about Fall wedding trends, and the coolest things we’re seeing on the flowery side of all that wedding planning craziness. (Here’s the link, in case you missed it.) Today, we thought we’d expand, exclusively, on one of the bigger trends that we’ve been witnessing though–the use of succulents on your big day. Check out the video of this gorgeous array of Succulents we just got in for a bride. She’s planning to give them away as wedding favors. (These are WAY better than personalized chocolates, in our opinion. Don’t tell the candy shop next door that we feel that way though. 😉 ) Below the video, you’ll find our top, eight, favorite wedding succulent ideas! If you’re thinking to use these adorable plants on your big day–we can order just what you need, in the same way we would order your regular flowers. 🙂
As promised…here are our favorite ways of incorporating succulents into your wedding. (In no particular order…)
-We love succulents in Boutonnieres. You can mix them with a small flower, or, just leave them alone. Either way, they look fabulous–especially for a more rustic themed wedding.
-Of course, as wedding favors! Like we said, as a guest, taking a little plant home is much more exciting. It’s healthier, longer-lasting, simple, and way cuter than the ‘regular’ take home gifts.
-Place settings. This one can go right along the above idea. Use the little pots the succulents are in to write your guests names on, and then not only do you have a great table marker, you also have the guest favors taken care of.
-In the bridal arrangement, and/or the bridesmaids flowers. Flowers, and succulents, work beautifully together; plus, the succulents can be salvaged after, so you can keep them around for years to come.
-In the centerpiece(s) either on your table, the guests tables, near the food, or, all of the above.
-As alter decorations. Succulents can be planted in just about anything. Old pieces of hollowed out wood, large seashells, regular pots, glass vases, bowls, broken pottery, teacups, cake holders, vintage mixing bowls, Mason Jars, bird baths, etc.
-On wedding cakes.
-In decorations such as monogrammed items, wall hangings, chair hangings, etc.
