One of the hottest trends this wedding season has been the addition of succulents to your ceremony. They can replace virtually any flower on your special day and succulents are much more hardy and sustainable. That means you can take home and admire a token from your special day for months even years after the party. Plant them in your garden and watch them grow like the love you and your partner share.
You don’t need to live in California to appreciate the fact that succulents need very little water and maintenance. When planted, they only need to be watered once a week. Succulents come in a wide variety of astonishing shapes and colors that can be made to look as elegant or as casual as you would like. The thick, fleshy leaves on succulents give beautiful contrast to delicate flowers in an array of different arrangements at the ceremony. We’ll talk about the different locations and ways you can incorporate succulents into your chic wedding.
Deck out your reception with custom centerpieces containing succulents.

Also, you will save a ton of money using succulents instead of flowers. You can always mix succulents with fresh flowers as well!
