Smitten with succulents

Lately, we have been smitten with succulents.
They have such great texture, and come in so many shades -  from grey to blue, green to purple, even orange.
Pastels,   Orange,   Purple,   Multi
They are so versatile in their appeal. Somehow they manage to work for weddings of all seasons. And somehow, they manage to look as casual, formal, rustic or elegant as you want. 

Here's just a few of the many ways to incorporate succulents into your day. 
  • Bouquets. 
  • Centrepieces. 
  • Tiny potted ones for guests to take home as favours. 
  • Boutonniere. 
  • Cake decoration. 
  • Place settings. 
It was so hard to choose just a few photos.. there is so much gorgeous inspiration out there!

Given that we live in one of the driest and most water-conscious states in world, these plants are also very practical. They retain water so require very little watering to flourish. And they also last forever - unlike cut flowers.
Come to think of it, this would have been a great option for our last post on 'alternatives to bouquets'. A fabulous choice for the eco bride. 

We really want to plant some of these in the garden now!
