Pros of Using Succulents for Decor at Weddings

The succulent craze has taken over weddings in recent years. They are easy to maintain, have the ability to grow in virtually any climate, and are considered by some to be more ecologically sustainable than flowers. If you're looking for something different that will cause your guests to do a double-take, succulents may just be what you need!

The Succulent Craze Has Taken Over Weddings

Succulents are succulent plants that are native to arid parts of the world. The succulent craze has taken over weddings in recent years and succulents have been one of the most popular choices for centerpieces, aisle decor, and décor accents. Succulents are easy to maintain, require copious amounts of light, and there's a species that can thrive in virtually any climate. They also last more than a week thanks to their ability to store water and go dormant during dry spells.

The succulent craze is not without some controversy as succulents can be difficult to care for if not properly tended. Basically, they shouldn't be watered as often as normal plants. They also shouldn't be exposed to freezing temperatures and hot afternoon sun. However succulents do live longer than traditional flowers which need to be replanted at least every few days or they will start wilting.

Succulents are More Ecologically Sustainable than Flowers

Succulents are great for the environment because they require less water than traditional flowers and don't need fresh cuttings. Other pros of using succulents for decor at weddings include:

  • no matter the weather or time of year your wedding is, there's always a succulent species you can count on to thrive
  • they last forever thanks to their ability to store water and propagate
  • succulents cuttings and leaves can be turned into rooted plants quickly in the spring and summer months
