Wedding Wednesday: Sweet & Succulent

Since I did a winter wedding theme last week for Wedding Wednesday, I thought that it would be fun to do a wedding theme for warmer climates this week. 

Now that I'm living in a rather hot climate myself, in South Australia, I'm learning to appreciate plants that do not need much water to survive and thrive. (Especially since I'm really not much of a "green thumb"!) One such type of plant is succulents. These little beauties are perfect for hot dry climates, and they come in so many shapes and colours. If you live in a cooler climate, you can grow them in pots in a sunny window. They really are gorgeous.

Succulents are becoming popular for weddings. As you can see by the images above, they are quite versatile for floral arrangements. Whether they are styled into fabulous bouquets, tucked into a bride's up-do, or handed out as easy-to-care-for favours for guests to take home, succulents make a wonderful theme for weddings.

These are really beautiful selections! I'm a big fan of succulents. I had a fall wedding, but I would have loved to used some of these ideas if I'd tied the knot in the spring/summer!
