The ease and beauty of these incredible 'flowers' is an exciting new
trend. They combine equally well with rustic seed pods and moss, or
lovely and fragile looking orchids.
They can even be painted to match the colours of the bridal party.
Sempervivum, one of the hardiest of all succulents is ideal for
this, as there are many that although they have a beautiful shape, tend
to be in a plain old green colour.
Paint them deepest purple or teal to match what the bridesmaids are
wearing. Many can survive this treatment, although they'll look a bit
off until the paint wears off, or they grow out of it.
Keep in mind that when you paint them, it will clog up the pores
that they breathe through, so be kind to them afterwards, and put them
outside in a recovery bed.
Whether it's a solemn occasion, or one that makes you giddy with joy,
succulents with their complete lack of fussiness will allow you to
enjoy your special day to the fullest.
After, once the excitement is over, you can put the Sempervivum
(shown in several of these pictures) outside to grow, and
the other tender succulents will be happy potted up into well drained
soil to sit on a bright window sill.
As a reminder of your special day, succulents for your wedding flowers are unparallelled.
If it's a gift made by an auntie or loved one, you'll appreciate the care and consideration of a centerpiece that will last for a lot longer than just flowers, like the picture of the succulent wreath below;
Jean Thielmann sent this gorgeous picture and says; My niece was recently married, and wanted succulents in her design. I made succulent wreaths for her guest tables.
