Succulents for Spring Weddings

April 6, 2009 | editorial team

After seeing numerous outdoor succulent gardens thriving on our last trip to Southern California and with my happy little potted succulents on the windowsill next to my desk practically swelling in the sunshine, I’m reminded of how wonderfully succulents go with spring wedding floral decor! So sculptural and compact, they make perfect little green favors for your guests to take home, and their dusty colors add interest, texture and dimension to spring floral centerpieces, bouquets and boutonnieres. Ask your florist about creative ways to incorporate them into your wedding decor, or choose a fun DIY project to bring their quirky personality to your wedding style.

  1. I used succulents for my wedding in Texas and the best part is they survived the 100 degree heat. Thanks to lots of big umbrellas and some afternoon wind, we did too.

  2. I just posted about Dandelion Ranch yesterday and of course my favorite photos of your post are from them as well. So much talent!

  3. Those succulents really fit their name! Absolutely lovely for weddings! Nice photos!

  4. oh my gosh! such pretty flowers!

  5. Oh yes! I am planning on having succulents as part of my floral arrangements for our summer wedding. Love the pieces that you chose to feature. -Brittni

  6. Do succulents have to be used in the spring/summer? I love the look but want to get married in the fall.

  7. Lovely pics! Succulents are really lovely. Best of all, after the big day, the plants can be grown in the garden- a nice reminder of the event and memorable day.
