The flower décor is the main attraction of your wedding, from the floral runners to the flower petal, everything sets a pleasing scenery that adorns the reception tables to the wedding aisle. Keeping these fresh and beautiful flowers to decorate the venue, the arrangements may appear good for a day or two but unfortunately, the freshness will not last long and these gorgeous blooms have a fleeing time.

These ideas of succulent plants can fit the rustic, barnyard, vintage, outdoor or go green theme weddings.
Now the point comes that what things we need to create these succulent centerpieces, create a living keepsake instead by making a pretty habitat for your wedding plants using:
- Potting soil
- A cup of water
- Layering materials like sand, dirt, gravels, rocks, sea glass, shells etc.
- Clear glass vessels
- A jug of water
- A spoon
Steps to follow:
- Firstly, create a base layer of dirt in your vessel, spooning in a layer in and patting it down so it's lightly packed.
- Then fill the vessels with the layer of dirt, sea glass, rocks, bark. Fill it in a way (pour more than you think it requires) that it will appear thick from the outside.
- Wet your hands and then grab a handful of potting soil to place it on the top of the bark. Water will keep the soil together. Use the spoon to carve the hole to plant the succulent in the glass vases.
