I love using succulents (as you can see from my Hearts and Flowers: Decorating For Your Wedding Day Blog and WDW (Wedding Day Weekly) Blogging for Brides.
Succulents can be used as centerpieces, part of a bridal bouquet or for almost any other decoration for your wedding day. They are especially great for weddings with a southwestern or Mexican theme.
I love how the photo above combines the use of pinto beans and succulents. The pinto beans almost look like pieces of rock from the desert and the flowers add some color to make the display pop.
Then reverse the combination for the bridal bouquet, more flowers than succulents. Wow!
