Succulents are one of the new trends in wedding 'flowers.' One reason brides and their florists love using succulents in wedding bouquets is they don't need much water and are unusually hardy plants.
Wedding colors have changed from the pinks and blues of yesteryear to the more modern peach, orange, pink, and coffee combinations. This bouquet mixes the traditional elements with the more contemporary ones. Cafe au lait colored bridesmaid gowns are the perfect foil for this peach, pink and yellow combination of traditional flowers and alternative color choices (seen above). This bouquet contains a blend of traditional and alternative elements combined in this artistic arrangement of garden roses, paniculata hydrangeas, bittersweet, and scabiosa pods.

Another succulent option courtesy of Martha Stewart is the hand-tied bouquet above. Succulents resembling flowers are the perfect combined with spotted phalaenopsis orchids. The assortment of succulents shown above is wired and tucked among columbine, white-and-pink ranunculus, and plum-colored tulips.
This white floral bouquet with varying shades of green is perfect for the bride who wants a bouquet free from color. Fresh millet, bay laurel, and succulents are combined in this bouquet full of natural beauty. For the link to Martha's site where you can find this and other succulent bouquets click here.
