20 Succulent Wedding Bouquets Perfect for the Boho Bride
When brides dream up their big-day bouquets, succulents don't always make it onto the final bloom-type list—but we think they should. Especially since this unique, up-and-coming plant is quickly becoming a favorite option for brides and florists alike. We can see why: They're durable, low maintenance, and bring unexpected color to all arrangements. Ultimately, succulents can make a striking statement in your spray. It doesn't matter if they are the main focus of your clutch or an accenting player—succulents always stand out, regardless of the blooms they're paired with.
Succulents come in an array of colors and shapes, giving you plenty of options to choose from. From dark green types to purple varieties, there is a succulent for every bouquet palette. We suggest making like this couple and combining different succulents together for an arrangement rich in texture and color. A succulent bouquet can also nod to your big-day locale. Since this plant derives from warm-weather climates, you don't have to worry about your succulent- or cacti-centric arrangement wilting—which means it's the perfect nonfloral for a celebration under the sun (their sturdy composition and and water-retaining qualities also ensure that your spray will last all summer-night long). Speaking of sturdy: If you want to toss your bouquet at the end of the evening, but don't want to ruin your florist's hard work, compose your clutch out of succulents. As long as your clutch is made of this plant, it will stay in good condition.
