Succulents Make Stunning Wedding Flowers

Looking for something a bit different than the usual roses and baby’s breath? Why not consider succulents for your wedding flowers?

Succulents are a great addition to wedding bouquets and centerpieces. They can also make great favors for your guests to take home and enjoy for years to come. They are also one of the most eco-friendly choices for your wedding flowers, as they can be replanted after your wedding.

You can also work succulents into bouquets with other flowers. The rich leafy look of the succulents is beautiful alongside the deep reds, purples, or whites of more traditional wedding blooms.

Succulents can make great wedding flowers because they also come in so many different varieties. They range from a wide variety of greens to whites, purples, and pinks. They are also available year round, which means you don’t have to worry about seasonal availability like you do with so many types of flowers.

Wedding Budgets Are Up

Weddings can be expensive, and according to the Real Weddings Survey, the amount spent on weddings has increased for the second year in a row. While there’s some variation by region, and many couples go above and below the averages, the numbers give some interesting insight.

Wedding Budgets

In addition to the figures in the graphic above, couples also spend an average of nearly $2,000 on their decor and flowers. This might seem like a lot, but it is worth thinking about what that will generally include.

Decor costs can include everything from table cloths to lighting. It can also include other rentals, such as chargers, chair covers, and flatware.

Flowers are a big part of most couples’ wedding dreams. From the bride’s bouquet to the reception centerpieces, they’re something that makes a wedding so very special.
