The succulent wedding theme can be incorporated into your wedding from the time that you send out your invitations. Imprinted with a classic succulent design, your wedding invitations can be uniquely created either on traditional card or on unusual wood, as seen by these Real Wood Wedding Invitations from Sara Sofia Couture.
For your wedding ceremony, line your aisle with a few succulents carefully placed alongside alternative ceremony chairs, as shown here by Style Me Pretty.
Succulents are so versatile in that they can be combined with flowers and decor items to create a one-of-a-kind centrepiece! For your table décor, real succulent plants can be used as place card holders that double-up as wedding favors for your guests! The DIY tutorial for these awesome succulent place cards from Michaels can be found on The Sweetest Occasion. Another great idea for wedding favors are these rosette-shaped ‘Echeveria’ succulent wedding favors from Martha Stewart Weddings, which will ensure that your guests are left with a long-lasting and easy-to-care-for keepsake of your wedding day!
Options for your table centrepieces are endless, with vintage containers being a great companion to a variety of succulent plants. Vintage silver planters make wonderful succulent centrepieces, such as this one from Garden Therapy and these stylish silver vintage champagne glasses from Cactus Jungle. Make use of a collection of silver pots, jars, tins, glasses and some colorful succulents to add a whole lot of vintage to your wedding table décor. We love DIY ideas and these succulent can planters are so easy to achieve by following the DIY tutorial from Apartment Therapy. One can also add a sweet touch to your table décor with adorable succulents in vintage tea cups, as shown here by Simply Julie or reuse a large brandy glass as Flower Duet has done to house a few succulents.

The thought of how to use succulents in your bridal look may leave you a little lost! Apart from bridal bouquets, succulents can be used to adorn your hair, neck and bridal accessories! Choose a delightful succulent hairpiece such as this freshly handmade one from Green Wedding Shoes or grace your mane with a fabulous succulent floral crown as seen on Elizabeth Anne Designs. A succulent hair comb such as this one from Succulently Urban is another great way to embellish your hairdo. Striking succulent necklaces either created from the real thing, like this unique succulent mini-garden necklace or from a precious metal like this succulent bronze necklace, both from the wonderful Woodlandbelle. And we believe that there’s nothing like this gorgeous ranunculus-covered clutch purse with a hens and chicks succulent as a brooch in the centre, designed by Renny and Reed via Garden Design, which is perfect to dress up your look!
For your wedding bouquets, the amazement of succulents may make choosing just one succulent bouquet, a challenge! Succulent bouquets are a long-lasting alternative to floral bouquets that you can treasure in your home as a keepsake from your wedding day. We love this bright and happy yellow flower and succulent bouquet as spotted on Once Wed and this succulent boutanniere to match from The Bride’s Cafe. Enhance a rustic-themed wedding with an overwhelming succulent bouquet filled with different succulent textures and tones, such as this succulent bouquet from B.loved Weddings.
