2017 Wedding Trends: SucculentsAugust 28, 2017 by The Marquardt Ranch
Choosing flowers for your wedding can be overwhelming. There are so many varieties, and even more kinds within each variety. If you’re still trying to decide which flowers to use on your wedding day, consider succulents! These simple plants can be used in many ways, from bridal bouquets to subtle centerpieces. Check out some of our favorite ideas for using succulents on your wedding day below!
Incorporate succulents before your big day arrives by choosing succulent-themed save-the-dates and invitations. You can keep them subtle with hues of light blue and green, or go bold with bright colors. Add gold lettering for an elegant touch!
Bouquets and Boutonnieres
Succulent bouquets are gorgeous for weddings in any season. Create a bouquet entirely of succulents or use them to accent other flowers. There are so many types you can use to make your bridal bouquet truly unique.
We can’t forget about the groom! Succulent boutonnieres are perfect for grooms who aren’t crazy about the idea of “wearing flowers,” and every other kind of groom. They’re also really easy to make, if you’re a DIY bride! If you’re not, don’t worry. You can order beautiful succulent bouquets and boutonnieres online.
We’ll never get over how dreamy flower crowns are, and succulents make the perfect touch to any crown, from simple to extravagant. Wear a crown entirely of succulents for an earthy look, or add some of your favorite flowers for pops of color.
Succulent centerpieces bring extra life to the best day of your life, and you can pair them with all kinds of objects: teacups, books, mason jars, and more. You can even display them in your new home after the wedding, or let friends and family take one home with them.
Haven’t decided how to thank your guests for celebrating with you? Give them each a mini succulent to take home. Personalize them by adding a tag with a cute saying about letting love grow. Your guests will have a new plant to brighten their home and the perfect token to remember such a beautiful day (and couple!).
There are so many things you can do with succulents on your wedding day, and this list is just the beginning! Add them to your cake, ceremony backdrop, gift table, or wherever you please; after all, it is your day.
