It’s been said that succulents are the new mason jars when it comes to wedding design. While we can’t argue with their popularity, we can’t help but love seeing our favorite plant popping up throughout the beautiful weddings we publish here on Junebug. From bouquets to cakes to favors, there’s plenty of room to incorporate succulents into your wedding decor, and we’ve got plenty of ideas from real weddings to inspire!

Make a statement with a succulent in your bouquet.

  1. Succulents definitely have a place in floral arrangements, they are hardy and easy to work with and you can plant them when done :) – plus as you have shown they look great!
    Thanks for the great post Nicole, the images are superb!
