Succulents at the wedding: decorative all-rounders
Everyone has definitely held a succulent in their hands at some point. Not only at home they are a true all-rounder, but also at a wedding. We show you what a wedding with succulents can look like. You can see how the plants can be found in the table arrangement as well as in the bridal bouquet and even in the boutonniere for the groom at this succulent wedding.
In this post we will show you many beautiful ideas on how to use succulents at the wedding. Most of the photos come from a styled shoot, which was planned under the motto “Classic elegance meets succulents & accent color purple”. Some really great wedding service providers have created a wonderful and, above all, romantic backdrop for a wedding. The accent color purple represents a strong but very nice contrast to the classic wedding colors silver and white. You can see the photos of the wedding further down in the article. There you will also find a list of all service providers, which is definitely worth a look.

What are succulents?
Succulents usually attract attention because of the unusually grown leaves. The different growth forms with the striking leaves are a distinctive feature of the plants. Incidentally, the best-known succulents are cacti, although these only make up a very small part of the plant group. For this reason, a distinction is usually made between cacti and “other” succulents.
The name of the plant group is derived from the Latin word “suculentus”, which means “rich in sap”. The leaves, which serve as a water reservoir, are often succulent. This water reservoir is why the plants are considered to be one of the easiest garden and pot dwellers.
How can succulents be used at the wedding?
Succulents come in many different types, shapes and colors. They stand for perseverance, patience, resilience and warmth – everything you want for a happy marriage. Not only do they go well with a wedding because of the meaning, but above all because of the wide range of types, shapes and colors.
Wedding invitation with succulents
There are many really beautiful wedding invitations for your wedding that match the Greenery style, on which you can discover succulents. A nice overview of different designs can be found on this page.
If you are also planning a wedding with succulents or in greenery style, then you should definitely include this in the stationery. In the following photo, succulents have been printed in the corners of the various parts of the stationery. It is also particularly nice if you decide to have torn edges for your stationery. By the way, you can read what exactly a Greenery wedding is in the linked article.
Table decoration with succulents
Even if succulents look good, a table decoration with only these plants would probably be very monotonous. So feel free to combine the succulents with other plants and flowers. A flower arrangement is a good idea that you can add additional small vases with succulents to. We will show you how this can look in detail in the photos of the succulent wedding below.
Wedding favors with succulents
Especially at a wedding, succulents can be presented effectively and above all beautifully. Not only for table decorations, but above all as a gift. In our article small flowers or plants as a gift for a wedding, we tell you how you can quickly and easily put together the ideal gift for a wedding with succulents.
Often the gift for the wedding with succulents in small pots or vases is placed in the respective place. You could also use this as a place card at the same time. Simply put a flag with the name in it and every guest already knows where to sit.
Bridal bouquet with succulents
As with the table decoration, succulents are usually combined with other flowers in the bridal bouquet. The following bridal bouquet comes from the succulent wedding “Classic elegance meets succulents & accent color purple”. There you can discover the succulents right away, which have been supplemented with roses and other plants for a harmonious overall picture.
The following pictures are from other weddings. But they should give you a little more inspiration on what a bridal bouquet with succulents can look like. This can of course be designed to match your color scheme at the wedding.
You can see more inspiration for other bridal bouquets on Etsy.
Boutonniere with succulent
What the bridal bouquet is to the bride, the boutonniere is to the groom. Of course, you can also incorporate a succulent here, even if only in a smaller version. Did you choose a specific color for the wedding? Then also use this for the boutonniere. In the following image, for example, the accent color purple is used in the form of a flower.
Wedding cake with succulents
At a succulent wedding, of course, the plant also belongs on the wedding cake. You could theoretically use this as a kind of cake topper, but we would recommend that you only use it for decoration. Otherwise you would first have to clear the cake before you cut it. So feel free to place succulents in small pots next to the cake for decoration, or use a few succulents for decoration on the side of the wedding cake.
photos of the wedding
We ourselves always find it very successful when the various components and colors run through the entire wedding like the proverbial red thread. At this wedding, the color concept is reflected in the entire, elaborately designed floristry. The silver is picked up in the table decorations, both in the underplates and in the candlesticks. The purple can be found in the serviettes, which create an accent to the silver decorative elements as well as the white tablecloths and the chair covers.
We find it particularly nice when the central elements of a wedding can also be found in the stationery. The stationery specially designed for this wedding fits perfectly into the wedding with its playful flower ornaments and romantic acrylic colors. The refinement is done with torn edges and small details, such as the heart around the wedding date and the name of the guest on each menu card. The menu card can be used as a place card at the same time. A really great idea!
In addition to the details already presented, there is much more to discover at this wedding. The wedding dress with long arms and a romantic lace as well as a skirt lined with glittering soft tulle was specially made for the bride. You can find the purple accent color in the bridal jewelry for the hair and the earrings.
