Why you should have SUCCULENTS as your Wedding Flower

Succulents wedding theme ideas bouquets

Succulents are now a regular feature in your florists window and here's why


The trend for having succulents, deemed a quirky little flower / plant as part of a wedding bouquet, or table / cake decoration and even as potted favors and featured on wedding invitations began around five years ago and this trend is showing no signs of diminishing.

So why are these Alpine, desert like plants so popular?



Succulents are evergreen

Whatever time of the year you're getting married, you will always be able to feature these plants with flowers at your wedding, unlike many other flower varieties. They also bloom in any season.

Succulents only require watering approx. once a week and enhance health

While other flowers (cut) will dry out and die if not displayed shortly after cutting, your succulents remain fresh and plump holding their appearance for longer. They also are known for purifying the air around them and humidifying the air as well only releasing oxygen even at night, all of which is an added bonus! They may help you avoid becoming ill on your wedding day.


Succulents offer a variety of colors

Watercolor Succulents Wedding CollectionYou may think succulents are mainly green and you'd be correct, but they have a wide variety of greens, and greeny blues and even purples and deep red to contrast, meaning they can co-ordinate with many wedding color themes.

Succulents are masculine and feminine

And by this I simply mean that generally flowers are seen as a feminine thing whereas succulents with their sturdy appearance can work just as well for men as for women and make excellent button holes for the groom and grooms party.


Succulents are easily available

Due to their ever growing popularity, not just for weddings but for other events and as a home decoration, you can purchase succulents in the Alpine/desert section of garden centers, in home stores and even in your local supermarket. They're inexpensive and transport easily.

Now we know why succulents are so popular and what their many benefits are, it's easy to see why they're a hot favorite at weddings. Before we take a look at how to plan your succulent wedding, here are some fast links to items you'll need.
