Wedding Succulents - An Introduction

Posted by Mountain Crest Gardens Staff on

We made a new YouTube video that explains why succulents are great for weddings, and how we organize our wedding succulent category on our website. If you prefer, you can read the point by point video recap below the YouTube embed.

Succulents are ideal for weddings. They are durable, colorful, easy to use and maintain so you don’t have to add to your busy day by worrying about watering plants or flowers wilting. They can be used in many ways for your event.

After the wedding, they don’t have to go to waste. You and your guests can take them home.

We can help you get your DIY wedding project going in the right direction. The plants in our  wedding category are selected to give you a variety of colors so you can find something that matches your color scheme. They’re also sorted by style so you can have clean and tidy plants or exotic varied shapes.

We feature rosette succulents that pair nicely with flowers.

Our wedding category is divided into two sections to narrow your search.

DIY Centerpieces & Décor features showy plants that can quickly fill a pot. 

It also includes plants that work well in bouquets, boutonnieres, and corsages.

DIY Favors category features a variety of affordable bulk flats with plants that transfer easy into pots, jars, pails, or other creative containers.

If you have specific questions, or want help selecting plants, call or  contact our customer service team (877-656-4035, M-F 7-4 Pacific). They love finding the perfect plant for your needs.

And may your marriage be “Sempervivum” ( Always Living).
