We've touched on succulents in your Gilbert wedding a few times in the past, but today I really want to dive into succulents specifically for your bouquet. Over the past few months, succulents have become quite trendy, not only in the backyard or home, but in weddings.
I personally think succulents are adorable. They're just so small and precious and cute. They come in so many different styles, shades of green and even blossoming colors. When you think of succulents, you probably think of cactus, pokey daggers protruding out of your bouquet, pain, maybe even the heat of the desert...all the things you'd like to avoid for your Gilbert wedding.
But, succulents are not what you think they are...
Different Shades of the Same Color - Succulents come in the most beautiful, subdued colors. In this link from PInterest, we've got multiple shades of subtle purple that make a beautiful arrangement:
Dark and Light Together: The great thing about succulents is that they come in so many different shades of the same color. In this Pinterest photo, we've got multiple colors but shaded in incredibly dark mixed with incredibly light colors, making for a beautiful bouquet.
Combining Succulents and Traditional Bouquet Flowers: Succulents come in such great, creative designs. In reality, the arrangement of many succulents actually looks like flower petals, so combining traditional flowers, like roses, with succulents makes for a unique and amazing bouquet.
There are just so many varieties of succulents that can be used to make an incredibly unique and memorable bouquet. It's definitely worth taking a look at.
