I’ve Got a Fever, and the Only Prescription is…

…no, not more cowbell – more succulents!

I’m addicted to these fat little plants. They are gorgeous, modern, and rustic – which is exactly the look and feel I want for our winery wedding. The best part is, this hot little trend is popping up everywhere – even Martha Stewart has the Fever! She has posted numerous gorgeous examples of how to incorporate these plants into your parties, including centerpieces and even favors.

In all honesty, this isn’t a Martha-stolen idea – I actually received my inspiration from the R.H. Phillips Winery itself. The landscaping is comprised of many beautiful flower beds, as well as several wine barrel planters filled with assorted flowers and – you guessed it – succulents. They were everywhere! So I figured, why not work with what’cha got?

Of course, this idea was cemented when I attended a wedding show and found that succulents were sneaking their way into bouquets. I loved this idea! I decided that my bridal bouquet, my bridesmaid bouquets and the groomsmen boutonnières will all have elements of succulents in them.

What I love best about these plants, is that you can ask your loved ones to graft pieces from their own plants and grow your own. If you used these plants in your wedding flower arrangements, they would also include a little bit of love from each of your friends and family members. Does anyone else have the Succulent Fever?

    Our favours are succulents in cute little pots – doubling up as placecards too.
    They’re SO easy to grow, it’s the easiest DIY project I’ve done so far!

    I’m also having them in my bouquet and FH’s bout :)
