Hot Wedding Trend: Succulent Bouquets

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something… succulent? Succulent bouquets are a hot wedding trend right now. Easy to care for, environmentally friendly, and far from ordinary, succulents in wedding bouquets, boutonnieres and centerpieces make for a unique and intriguing wedding day assemblage.

Succulents can come in a variety of unique shapes, textures, and fun colors – ranging from different shades of green and grey to soft pinks and rich, earthy purples. Exotic yet muted, it’s easy to see why they’re becoming this year’s top wedding trend. A few of the most commonly known succulent plant groups are:

  • Kalanchoe
  • Aeonium
  • Agave
  • Aloe
  • Echeveria
  • Sedum
  • Sempervivum

For a pop of color, mix in creamy tulip blossoms, bright yellow Craspedia, purple Delphinium or dark red spray roses. The textural combination of succulents and blooms is amazingly magical. For a more rustic appeal, sprinkle in a few wildflowers. (To maximize your budget, choose blooms in season.)

You can save money by making your own succulent bouquet or centerpieces. Everything you need, you can easily find at your local nursery or big box hardware store. When the reception is over, be sure to replant your succulents. This will allow you and your groom to treasure them from the comfort of your home for years to come.
