Floral Love: Succulents, Pt. 1 (Bouquets)

We return to our Floral Love series with a bang — with versatile and pretty succulents. It would have been easy to incorporate succulent centerpieces, boutonnieres, favors, etc. into one post, but we found so much inspiration in just the bouquets that we had to make it a two-parter. It’s no wonder that succulents are a popular choice of florals in California. According to MarthaStewart.com, succulents are “plants that store their water in their stems, leaves, and roots, causing their ‘succulence.’ Succulents have evolved in the desert and need direct sunlight.” Succulents are easy going, too. You need only to water them every 10 days to 2 weeks, they require minimal fertilization, and are easy and sturdy to work with. Enjoy the post!     Credits: 1 Brett Heidebrecht / Malakanoff Nursery (via) 2 NK Photography (via) 3 Ampersand Wedding Photography / Village Green Florist (via) 4 Nancy Neil (via) […]

Bunched together, carnations can pack major punch. They’re affordable, easy to get, light and airy, and can be the star or costar of your wedding. Quick facts about this sweetly-scented flower: Available year-round, they are never out of season. Carnations are symbolic of mother’s love. 3 weeks: Length of time carnations can last once cut.
