The very first wedding I ever worked at Ponte was a fall wedding in our Vineyard Pavilion. I will always remember the couple’s guest favors because they stood out to me as the most creative and sweet idea I have seen among the many weddings here at the winery. Each guest received a small potted succulent with a note that read, “Love grows where you plant it.” It was a perfect gift for the guests to bring home and keep nurtured just as the couple would go forth and do the same in their new marriage. Succulents have become very popular among florists, wedding designers and brides to be. Here are a few ideas for how to incorporate succulents into your own wedding!
I love the sweet note from the bride and groom describing the meaning for their choice. Succulents have the special ability to grow in various conditions. They can weather many storms and are not affected by extreme temperatures or changes in their environment. What a beautiful way to describe the marriage this couple desires to work for.
Succulents have the most gorgeous colors. They work well with many different styles and are very durable. What better way to keep your groomsmen looking classy than a boutonniere that is both fashion-forward and won’t be affected by a long day of photos and dancing?
Succulents make such a stunning impression when incorporated into floral designs. Some florists just use succulents as accents while others use them for the entire bouquet as shown above. Either way, they create such a fun dimension and texture to a bouquet for the bride and bridesmaids.
Don’t forget about the invitations! Sketched succulents shaded in with blues, greens and tans are exquisite on paper. You can use different types of succulents for each portion of the invitation and keep the design tied into the rest of the wedding.
I had never imagined using succulents to decorate a cake until I came across this gem. The light natural tones that they already offer pair beautifully with a simple white cake and a bit of moss below. This is so fun and looks absolutely gorgeous!
