We Do: Succulents


succulent: 1) a. full of juice b. moist and tasty 2) rich in interest.

If you are looking for just one thing to inspire your entire wedding or party, look no further. It is all about the succulent plant and just how, well, succulent it really is. This one plant, in all its varieties and textures and colors, can be the perfect starting point for inspiration from beginning to end. Starting with your event colors. Here are two color inspiration boards perfectly pleasing.

Simple, rustic and elegant bridal bouquets.




Succulents can even adorn the bride's hair in lieu of a traditional veil.

Bridal party bouquets are simple and beautiful against a pop of color.

And of course, boutonnieres for the men.


Is this not the most perfect ring bearer pillow? And so easy to make.

An amazing backdrop. 
Easy to create your own vertical succulent wall in any venue.


Flora & Grubb have a great DIY kit available here.
And to think that you could actually keep the floral decorations after the event.
That is just one of the many beautiful things about succulents.

Wreaths of succulents would be great decor as well.

Perfect escort cards and guest favor in one.


And a great table set up with succulents 
at one of our favorite rustic venues, Devil's Thumb Ranch.

Simply elegant.


Perfect place settings for a smaller affair.

And of course, the cake. There is always room for more.

How sweet it is.
