Sweet & Succulent Wedding

With so many abundant floral choices available in the Spring and Summer months, couples often forget about the amazing vegetation and plant life they can incorporate into their weddings. Opting for a plant alternative for wedding décor is a less expensive way to garnish your reception, without breaking the bank on floral arrangements. Using plants as wedding decorations is also a great way to please brides, grooms, or guests that may have a flower allergy or pollen allergy! It can also be more eco-friendly when using potted plants that can be given out as favors later on.

Here is our inspiration board for a succulent inspired wedding. Succulents are great plants to incorporate into a wedding, or any summer party décor, because they retain a lot of water and can sustain arid climates. We have seen this succulent plant décor trend emerging on Pinterest lately, and believe it is a great wedding theme option for brides who want a more DIY (do-it-yourself) feel or casual style to their wedding.

The motif of the invitation is then carried on to the wedding cake, which reflects the design of the wedding invitations in a sleek and modern baked design. Fondant Succulent Wedding Cake by OneWed.com

Succulents are an excellent choice for your bridal bouquet because they can hold up throughout the ceremony, photo shoots, and the reception. They can also be prepared ahead of time if you are a DIY bride. Pair the soft greens and neutrals greys of the succulent plants with a pop of color like yellow or pink to keep the event looking monochromatic. Succulent Bouquet by StyleMePretty.com

The rustic romance feel of the wedding should not stop at the wedding décor. Make sure you, your groom, and your wedding party are comfortable yet chic with sweet touches of rustic accents. Bridal braids are a huge trend for summer and are fuss-free so there is not much maintenance throughout the event. Rustic Bridal Hair by GlamourandGraceBlog.com
