Succulent lurve

7 July, 2010

There are floral trends… and then there are floral trends. Of all the ones that have sprung up in the last few years, succulents have to be one of my favourites. They’re relatively inexpensive and lend themselves to DIY because they can be prepared beforehand, they’re neutral enough to be mixed in with a range of styles and palettes, and best of all, there’s something kind of kooky and unexpected but incredibly pretty about them. Safe to say, this is one trend that isn’t going anywhere! So here are some of my absolute favourites from around the web to inspire you.

First up is this seriously amazing bouquet. How completely romantic and unusual can you get? Photo by A Fly on the Wall Photography via Unruly Things.

Succulents also work so well as favours. Make them by following this DIY tutorial and then line them all up prettily on an escort table.

Alternatively, you could place the succulent favours at individual place settings. I LOVE this idea of putting them under an upturned glass! Photo by Josh McCullock via Style Me Pretty.

This wedding decor was all about the succulents, since growing them is a hobby for the groom. He made up centrepieces for all the tables, as well as this boutonniere. If you have a groom who is less than keen to pin a flower to his lapel, this is your solution! Photo by Heidi Ryder via Love and Lavender.

If you like the boutonniere idea, you are going to love this one! How amazing does the succulent hair flower look? Photo by Stephanie Williams via Green Wedding Shoes

And finally, if you’re incorporating succulents into your decor, why not carry them through to your cake? Photo by  Stephanie William via Pretty Chicky
