Wedding succulents and ideas for your big day

When planning the perfect wedding, you will need to make several important decisions. One of which is the type of floral décor that you will use at the ceremony and reception. If you want something different, why not consider wedding succulents? Not sure how to include them in your décor, here are some ideas.

Party favours

It’s always nice to give your guests something that they can take home with them. In the past, party favours were usually some sort of sweet treat or another keepsake to remind them of the newly wed couple. Order mini wedding succulents and plant them in cute containers or mini buckets. Set one at each place setting with the name of the guest. This party favour is one that is sure to last for many years.


Wedding succulents will make a grand statement if placed on each table at the reception. Centrepieces that consist of succulents will look fantastic all night long and you can have them designed and arranged in advanced too.

Handheld bouquets

Wedding succulents are not just for décor, you can also have your florist include them in your bridal bouquet. Using succulents in a handheld bouquet will ensure that you don’t have to worry about it wilting. These plants can hold up extremely well even in very dry conditions. This means that they will last longer than any cut flower. Once you toss or pass your bouquet along, the succulents can be replanted by the lucky recipient.

Cake décor

Just as you would place flowers on your wedding cake, so too can you decorate your cake with wedding succulents. You can use a variety of these small plants all around your cake. Whether you have a single tier or three tier cake, you can be sure that succulents will add colour, texture and elegance to the design.

As you can see, you can use wedding succulents in every way that you would cut flowers. Their lovely shades of green also make them an elegant accessory. Make sure that you combine several types of succulents in order to create designs that include various shades of green and different textures too.
