A new trend in wedding floral design is the use of hearty succulents. These unique plants are low-maintenance to care for because of their ability to store water in its leaves for a prolonged period of time. As a result, a succulent floral arrangement will outlast any bouquet. This means they are a great option for brides, especially those hosting an outdoor wedding in South Dakota (because we all know how hot it can get.)
There are an endless number of varieties of succulents, but some of the most common ones include aloe, bear paw, black rose, hen and chickens, and many kinds of sedum.
Your wedding décor can also incorporate the use of succulents in a number of ways. From modern bouquets to unique boutonnieres, these unexpected stems will add a twist to any floral design. Pairing succulents with other blooms such as, billy balls, parrot tulips, or orchids will create an arrangement that will for undoubtedly surprise and impress your guests. Give your centerpieces a distinctive flair by pairing succulents with manzanita branches, pods, and protea. Whatever the combination, using succulents will add a unique, memorable element to any wedding or event.
