With their thick and fleshy parts, succulents are an easily distinguishable plant, even for those of us without a degree in botany. They’re also sometimes called ‘fat plants’ but lets stick to succulents for now, this is a wedding blog after all.
Succulents have become a very popular feature at weddings, especially here in Portugal where they seem to grow everywhere.
With succulents in more than 60 families of plants, there are plenty of shapes, sizes and colours to choose from, as our photos show.
They offer an excellent alternative to flowers, lasting longer and creating an air of enigmatic chic.
Perhaps the best thing about succulents is just how versatile they are. You can use them in bouquets
….and even as wedding favours.
