Succulent Bouquet's

Succulents have become so popular recently and at first I didn't understand why. When I pictured  succulents I just saw a cactus. I couldn't be more wrong.

After finding out more about succulents, I started looking into different floral arrangements. These are a few of my favorites.

I love this one. The colors of these succulent flowers are beautiful and really stand out much more than I would have thought.

This bouquet, although relatively simple, I find very pretty. I don't know if I would have a bride carry it, however I think it would work very well for bridesmaid's wearing bold colored dresses.

Great Wedding Flower Alternative: Red Graptosedum

There are many great, colorful, hardy succulents you can incorporate into your wedding. One of my favorites is the Red Graptosedum.

The Red Graptosedum is a hybrid cross of Sedum and Graptopetalum. They come together to form a tiny, beautiful bronze-colored rosette. To change the color of these hardy succulents, simply place them in direct sunlight, and watch the fleshy bronze petals turn a pinkish reddish hue.

Best of all, if you have wedding during the spring or summer months, Red Graptosedum blooms yellow flowers to add that perfect pop of life and color to every piece of your wedding decor.

Red Graptosedum, and all succulents for that matter, feature qualities a typical flower used in weddings can’t. Besides being colorful and beautiful, they are long lasting, reusable, hardy, and an extremely cost effective alternative for your upcoming wedding!

Succulent Wedding Ideas

Try taking succulents out of the norm and use them as you would any flower.
A succulent corsage is something I've to see in person, but I'm certain I wouldn't be disappointed.

How about some boutonnieres to match?

Looking for a unique hairstyle? No succulent themed wedding would be complete without...

Finally, add some life to your venue. This is one of my favorite ideas because they are cheap, easy, and fun to make. Add a little splash of succulents.
