Pretty Sage & Succulents Wedding Inspiration
This week we draw inspiration from the humble but beautiful succulent. It’s gradually crept into wedding styling over the last couple of years and doesn’t seem to be going anywhere in a hurry. And I adore the colour palette it sits in; dusty grey-greens and the succulents’ distinctive surface texture.
The succulent’s more structural shape, in all its wonderful varieties, lends itself to the more contemporary look that brides and grooms are crying out for. But for me, it’s that dusty green colour, Sage, that really excites me. It’s subtle and natural and can sit alongside any neutral palette. And who doesn’t love neutrals for a wedding day?
So how do you use this inspiration in your own planning? Well, the succulents are easy… you can ask your florist to include them in table centres, floral displays, bouquets and even flower crowns. Tiny succulents work brilliantly in button holes and place names. If you’ve got green fingers, you could gradually collect and look after your own succulent plants, and scatter them in grievous neutral pots across your whole wedding day. Even maybe to decorate your cake.
But what about the colour Sage? it can be used in so many places… just think of it as a gentle thread running through your existing wedding style. A light dusting of green across an eyelid; layers of Sage tulle on bridesmaids dresses, green ink calligraphy in every stationery opportunity. Add to this a super pulled back background palette, of barely there creams and greys, and this subtle colour can really sing out.
