7 Succulent Bouquets You Wish You Knew About|Succulent City

When you think of wedding bouquets, the thought of bright, colorful, and lush flowers immediately pops into your mind, not succulents. Succulents are known to be plants that grow low to the ground, in harsh conditions. They flower, some once a year, others a little more. However, creating wedding bouquets out of succulent flowers has never been an objective for succulent growers.

Now, boho-chic enthusiasts and modern events organizers are using succulents to create stunning bouquets. They make great table toppers and look stunning in the arms of a blushing bride. These use more than flowers; the delicately arranged leaves of the succulent are the key appeal. Here are 7 succulent bouquets you wish you knew about!

All Succulents Bouquet

Finally, Senecio Rowleyanus are hanging succulents which make this bouquet stunning to view from all directions. This collection of succulents would be ideal to use for a wedding bouquet.

The Cactus Wedding Bouquet

Though Cacti may not seem like an ideal bouquet choice, they can create a fabulous aesthetic. Not to worry, with the proper arrangement you will not prick your fingers. Start with a Moon Cactus as there is a range of colors to choose from. To these, you can also add some Hatiora Salicornioides. When they are in flower, they also add in a burst of color. To add some more character, Blue Thistle is a stunning flower that embodies the elements of a cactus.

Bright and Happy Bouquets

A succulent bouquet can brighten up any day. For one that is light and bright, combine succulents with flowers that are linked to joy. One excellent option is putting together some Sempervivums and accentuating their features with daisies or small sunflowers. White Daisies are an excellent option, and if you prefer, they are available in many other colors as well.

A Touch of Unusual

For a real conversation starter, a succulent bouquet that is a little unusual is ideal. Instead of using the rosette-shaped succulents that do so well in these bouquets, zebra plants can take center stage. These add an element of height and can serve as an excellent backdrop for the back of the bouquet. The front can feature some shorter succulents or a collection of brightly colored seasonal flowers.

The Single Succulent

For a romantic and memorable bouquet, you can make a succulent the focal point of all the flowers. This allows for a personalized creation, that can combine one’s favorite flowers, with their favorite succulent.

Echeveria is ideal for use in a single bouquet as they can grow up to four inches in width. Surrounding flowers should ideally all be one color so that the succulent can really pop. Peonies and roses are exquisite flowers to have in a single succulent bouquet.

Reasons why Succulent Bouquets are Becoming More Popular

Brilliant Contrasts of Textures, Colors, and Structure.

With succulents, what traditionally would have been a beautiful bouquet, can turn into a sculptural masterpiece. The key is to make use of different shapes and sizes for a unique result.

Succulents Can Be Reused or Replanted for Lasting Memories.

Propagating succulents is the easiest way to grow them, and all you need is a single leaf. To remember a special day, one can pick at their bouquet and create a whole garden.

Succulents are Cost-Effective.

Unlike exotic flowers, common succulents are inexpensive. A brilliant bouquet could cost you around $50 only.

Succulents are Long-Lasting.

A succulent bouquet will last the entire day without wilting or drying out.

Final Tip:

Succulents do not have long stems, so a fake stem is a solution. This can easily be achieved with some floral wire and floral tape. The amount that you use will depend on the weight of the succulent. Rule of thumb, the larger the succulent, the more tape and wire you will need.
