FREE watercolor cacti art printables and why Succulents make the perfect wedding flower

Why are succulents so popular as a wedding flower in 2021?

The trend for having succulents, deemed a quirky little flower/plant as part of a wedding bouquet, or table/cake decoration, and even as potted favors and featured on wedding invitations began around five years ago and this trend is showing no signs of diminishing.

So why are these Alpine, desert-like plants so popular?

Note: You can source your succulents via my wedding succulents page on Amazon where I have sourced everything you need.

Succulents are evergreen

Whatever time of the year you’re getting married, you will always be able to feature these plants with flowers at your wedding, unlike many other flower varieties. They also bloom in any season. Succulents only require watering approx. once a week

Succulents offer a variety of colors

Succulents are masculine and feminine

And by this, I simply mean that generally flowers are seen as a feminine thing whereas succulents with their sturdy appearance can work just as well for men as for women and make excellent buttonholes for the groom and grooms party.

Succulents are easily available

Due to their ever-growing popularity, not just for weddings but for other events and as home decoration, you can purchase succulents in the Alpine/desert section of garden centers, in-home stores, and even in your local supermarket.

They’re inexpensive and transport easily
