11 Creative Ways to Use Succulents in Your Wedding

What’s not to love about succulents? They’re versatile, easy to maintain, inexpensive, instantly give a striking look, and last much longer than flowers! Available in greenish greys to deep purples, succulents are a great way to add colour and natural beauty to your wedding day. Since Pantone announced that "Greenery" was 2017's colour of the year, succulents have been springing up everywhere, from flower arrangements to decorations. And because we’re fans of this top trend ourselves, we’ve rounded up some great ideas on how you can make succulents a big part of your big day.
