22 ways to use succulents in your wedding

It’s easy to see why succulents have become popular these past few years.  Their low maintenance, relative cost-effectiveness, unusual plant forms and stunning colors make them an excellent choice for wedding planning.  So what are succulents?  They are basically plants that store water in their leaves, which makes them able to endure long periods of drought by relying on the stored water and nutrients in their leaves.  The word “succulent” means juicy.  Their leaves tend to be thick and fleshy.  They come in many colors but their color can also depend on the amount of sunlight or water they receive.  Receiving a little more cold, or sun or dryness then they prefer shocks them, making them even more lovely.  Some succulent leaves will intensify in color when stressed turning them vivid shades of orange, pink, red and purple.  Brides are using them in all aspects of their wedding; from wedding bouquets, to centerpieces to wedding favors.  With succulents, you can’t go wrong.  Below, a little succulent inspiration.
