We love the idea of using Bougainvillea in your wedding... these flowers come is just about the most gorgeous colors, especially the pink. This couple used the plants as a ceremony arch and backdrop. What a perfect frame for their first kiss as husband and wife! Am I right?!

Succulent Place Settings...

These are just the most charming! We truly believe that what makes a good wedding are all the little details that are so thoughtfully constructed and different from the norm. We love these tiny succulent and cactus name card alternatives. Adding plants to your wedding literally adds extra life... and as your marriage grows, so will these sweet souvenirs from your big day. Plus, succulents are the easiest to care for!
