The lack of vegetation around here lately has me coveting all things green, leafy, and full of petals. One of my favorite plants used abundantly at weddings is the succulent. If you can believe it, I had never heard of succulents before seeing them splashed all over wedding blogs. But once I saw these lush, green plants I was smitten. I love that succulents are low-maintenance plants that are earth-friendly decoration.
Plus they are gorgeous:

This would be perfect with our color scheme.
Plus succulents come in a wide variety of colors, shapes, and sizes:

Don’t they make you want to soak up the sun and forget these gray days? Ahhhhhhhh…I can’t wait for summer.
It was love at first sight for me and succulents, so I knew early on in planning our wedding that I was going to incorporate them into our wedding decor.
Despite having little knowledge about succulents, Mr. Pony and I set about growing our own little plants to use for our wedding. Next, I’ll show you our results.
