Spruce Up Your Wedding With Succulents

Trendy, visually striking, and low maintenance, succulents make the perfect plant for enhancing your wedding decor. Succulents, or water-storing plants, are natively found in hot, arid regions where rainfall is scarce. These plants store water in their roots, stems, and leaves, making their parts thicker and fleshier than other types of plants. If you love plants, like us, and want to bring even more nature into your wedding scene, succulents are the recipe for botanical bliss that you seek. We’re here to inspire you to bring these beautiful and quirky plants into your wedding day with some green ideas on décor.
