Weddings by K'Mich - wedding planning - wedding on a budget-succulents

What are succulents? Succulent plants, also known as succulents, are plants that have some parts that are more than normally thickened and fleshy, usually to retain water in arid climates or soil conditions. The word "succulent" comes from the Latin word sucus, meaning juice, or sap. They are available all year round and very affordable!

These hardy plants are pretty and blend well with all floral arrangements. It could be their unique shape, their organic color palette, or their natural beauty… Whatever it is you are dreaming of, here are 13 fresh ways you can use succulents in your wedding.

13+ Fresh Ways to Use them Now!

A. Steal-worthy Ceremony Style 

1. Pinecones 
Who knew that planting succulents directly into a pinecone would create such a beautiful hanging planter? This idea is perfect if you want to add some flavor to your wedding. I like that the string is not overly visible, so your focus remains on the plant. Alternate between pues or chairs

B. Zinger Bridal Fashion Ideas

Greenery bouquets are definitely a hot wedding trend, so why not fill it with succulents in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes. Add them to your bouquet, wrist corsage, necklace, flower crowns (for your bridesmaids), and boutonnieres!

D. The Zinger Reception Style  

11. Entrance - Bricks 
If you have a stash of bricks laying around, use them to decorate the entrance. Add candles (your wedding color) and succulents (different styles) and make it your own! If you don't have any bricks laying or around, you can DIY your initials using a few pallets and add a few succulent (mix the colors)!

Rustic Idea - Turn a birdcage into a hanging basket planter with a few simple modifications and the addition of gorgeous plants!

E. The Double Work Table Setting

13. Escort Cards and Table Numbering
This idea does double work; it shows guests their name and table number ( add numbers to the front of the container) and goes home with them at the end of the night (favor)! 
This succulent decoration idea doubles as both a centerpiece and table number, and will compliment your outdoor wedding reception.

  1. Succulents come in such a huge variety of shapes, colors, and sizes. They're quite beautiful! I especially like the succulent wedding bouquet and the pinecone hanger for succulents. Thank you for participating in Talent-Sharing Tuesdays Link-up 10.
