During the winter, options for wedding flora can be varied and in far less abundance than the summer months. That being said, you can still source some beautiful options for your bouquets and decorations. We love the stylish plethora of beautiful succulents, available during winter, low maintenance and fashionable right now. Creating a desert scape during winter might just trick guests into thinking they’ve travelled to an exotic warm continent for a day (or have them wishing at least!).
The resilient nature of succulents makes them so wonderfully versatile for wedding décor and if you’re environmentally conscious, they are the perfect options as they’re eco-friendly and can be re-planted after your wedding. One of our favourite varieties is the Echeveria succulent, not only is it absolutely gorgeous (arguably the most attractive of all succulents), but it will also tolerate cold wet winters. The best part is you can source Echeverias in different hues, from purple to green to redish pinks, meaning you or your florist can be creative with your arrangements.
Rustic, organic elements suit the understated elegance of succulents best. Natural woods and metals really bring the unassuming beauty of the desert into your setting, which means you have the freedom to experiment with many DIY projects. Don’t worry if they’re not perfect, this styling concept is about raw natural pieces that will look even better with an imperfect finish. Throw some stylish elements into the mix, such as opulent silverware and magical fairy lights to maintain a hint of elegance.
These beautiful rugged plants are tough enough to be planted in some creatively unconventional ways! Bring some of the desert’s beauty to your wedding with some simple DIY projects. A succulent curtain is an interesting backdrop for your ceremony, simply use floral wire to attach small clippings and buds to strands of twine and hang them. Placing different colours and textures in picture frame planters will create original wall hangings. Create a succulent chandelier by hanging a pot rack or birdcage filled with potted succulents and candles for effect. Re-plant all of your succulents after the wedding as a lasting reminder.
