moroccan oasis

orange desert wedding with air plant One of the best details in this Moroccan styled wedding inspiration board is the air plant bouquet. I’d definitely call succulents the ‘go to green’ for 2012, but in 2013 it’s going to be air plants. They are amazing! I love how structural and unique they are – plus, they take their water and nutrients from their leaves (roots are used for anchoring to things like rocks and trees) so they are perfect for weddings because you can remove the root system and place them wherever you like (be sure to mist the leaves with water) and not worry about them drying up!
