We have a new love……a love for Succulents that is!

These amazing little plants are all the rage & rightfully so. They are so beautiful, easy to grow & care for!

Succulents come in all shapes, sizes & colours such as yellow, blue/grey and a crimson so dark it’s almost black

There are sedums as dainty as sea foam, fuzzy kalanchoes & frilly echeverias to name a few

Many brides are asking for them to be incorporated into their bouquets

The best part about using succulents in your bouquet is that when your bouquet fades you can remove the succulents & simply put them in a pot of soil or in the garden & they will re-root & continue to grow! Making a beautiful keepsake from your wedding day

As you can see, succulents look amazing mixed with beautiful blooms

They also make a stunning bouquet all on their own and if you’re looking to keep your wedding day “green” succulents are they way to go!

Many people consider flowers to be expensive especially when they die a few days after the wedding

Why not use succulents for your guest table centerpieces. Whether you mix them with colourful flowers or on their own, guests will have a memento to take home that will continue to grow & provide everlasting memories of your special day

Now why stop there? When mini succulents make a fantastic guest favor!

A budget friendly idea is to have your favors dub as escort cards as well. Have them displayed on a table with your guest names in alphabetical order & their table number

The bottom line is succulents are worth the money you spend on them. Unlike flowers, they will last long after the wedding day has come & gone. With the proper care (which is very minimal) succulents can last for many years and for all of you “eco-conscience” people (which we should all be) succulents are grown locally, therefore keeping your carbon footprint at a minimum
