Flowers are traditional and greenery is so last year — this year, it’s all about the succulent wedding decor. This durable plant is both functional — it won’t wilt as quickly as florals do — and pretty — it infuses different shades of color into your wedding. From cacti to aloe vera, there’re a variety of succulents to choose from that can suit your wedding theme, whether it’s nuptials in the desert or a rustic chic affair in the barn. And there are equally diverse ways to flaunt them — in bouquets, centerpieces, escort displays, or ceremony aisles, to name just a few.
