I am going to let you in on a secret- During the summer, Sacramento can get really hot. I know! Shocker! When I am designing flowers for summer weddings here in Northern California I need to make sure they are going to hold up to the rigors of the day. This is where succulents come into play. They are super hardy. I love to use them in boutonnieres and other pieces for the wedding flower decor. Some of the reasons I heart using succulents in wedding flowers are:
Succulents will hold up to heat and abuse of the wedding day.
They are a stylish alternative to more traditional flower choices.
You can plant the succulents after your wedding and have a lasting reminder of your day.
FUN NOTE: The boutonniere above features succulents and scented geranium leaves plucked from my own garden.
