Cactus Themed Wedding Ideas

Here in Arizona, it's quite common to see a desert themed wedding and what better way to highlight the Southwest region than incorporating cacti into the theme.

The awesome thing about cacti here in Arizona is the tremendous variety. We have cactus in multiple shapes, sizes and colors. Many of them blooming into beautiful floral arrangements during specific times of the year.

Here are a few ideas that might inspire your cactus infused wedding...

Cactus Centerpiece:

The centerpiece is always a great place to start when theming your wedding. Your day-of wedding coordinator will make sure the centerpieces will be looking absolutely beautiful for when your guests arrive at the reception.

Cactus Bouquet:

While most individuals outside of Arizona consider the cactus to not be incredibly stunning or beautiful, those of us Arizonans know that the cactus can actually be a remarkable addition to any wedding.

Talk to your florist about a cactus inspired bouquet that infuses different blooms from different cacti, different textures and different shades of color to truly give your wedding bouquet that needed pop.

Wedding Favors:

You can also incorporate cacti in your wedding favors. They can stand alone or serve a purpose like holding the escort cards. Your out of town guests will love taking home a piece of the desert with them.

Cactus Themed Drinks:

Cactus water is a thing. And if it is made from cactus, it needs to be in your Arizona themed wedding.

Here in Arizona, prickly pear vodka is quite popular. Prickly pear cactus is actually quite beautiful and apparently quite tasty. Prickly Pear Margaritas are a big hit out here in Arizona as well.
