Succulents

Succulents are a great alternative to traditional flowers.  They have a different texture, look and feel but equally as beautiful.  You can integrate them into your bouquet, centerpieces, or line the aisle with them to create a dramatic look (see photo below).  

Another great use of succulents is to create monogramed planter boxes with your initials like these!  I came across these on Etsy the other day and they are SO incredible!  Wouldn't these be so adorable on a card table or behind the bar?  I've got to add this to my list of things to do to make one...more to come on that :)

Alright, one more amazing example of using succulents for your wedding day.  How about lining the aisle with candles and small accents of succulents?  Check this out:

How gorgeous is this?!

I lied I found another one I wanted to share.  (Just can't get enough!)  If you are looking for a less traditional wedding favor how about giving each guest a mini succulent with their table number assignment as well.  This not only is dual purpose but also adds color, interest and texture to the tables during the reception.
