Succulents as Centerpieces
Posted by Margaret. Filed under Flowers, Wedding Inspiration


Looking to reduce the carbon footprint of your wedding? Opt for eco-friendly centerpieces such as succulents and/or cacti and the earth (and your wallet) will thank you. I went with a mix of succulents and cut flowers for my centerpieces and it was one of the smartest wedding decisions I made. After the big day my new husband and I replanted all of my centerpieces and one year later, my Southern Californian garden is filled with big, beautiful succulents. (I actually had too many plants and had to give some to my sister who now has them in her garden.)

Call me sentimental, but I love the symbolism of these plants growing in the garden that my husband and I built together. Every time I see them I think of our wedding and how special it was. And because you can cut and replant these succulents, I give them to friends and family all the time. It’s a simple act that makes me feel like I’m spreading joy.
