Different Type of Succulents to Choose From:
Succulents add just the right amount of texture to the overall look of a decoration arrangement. So, incorporating them into your wedding decorations adds a refreshing touch and uplifts the overall ambience.
If you love greenery, make wreaths of succulents, tillandsia, ferns, and passion vine to grace the doors of the church where you will be saying ‘I Do’. The wedding table can be decorated with succulent printed napkins and seating cards staked into mini succulent pots. The groom and his best man can gussy up their lapel with succulent boutonnieres.
Succulents can also be made great wedding gifts for your guests to take home. Stenciled glass jars filled with cute, tiny succulents or mini terrariums with succulents and air plants nesting in white sand will add a special touch to the ceremony.
