Classy and timelesssucculent bouquet ideas
There's not much you can do with bouquets these days. But a bouquet that uses succulents has a far bigger impact. It does not matter what the theme of your wedding is. Succulents come in a large variety, and the most popular ones, blue succulents, can be easily paired with other flowers and greenery to achieve whatever look you prefer. For example, if yours is a summer/spring wedding with the popular salmon and mint theme you can easily make a stunning bouquet of coral roses and mint green succulents. Since succulents come in different hues and structures, a hand-tied succulent only bouquet is also a great option!
1. Different texture
Succulents can be paired with literally anything. And we are going to prove that. All you need is a vision, creativity and some good quality bulk succulent. A highly textured bouquet is great for brides looking for that something extra.For this type of bouquet, you need to add accents like cotton, berries, and branches to your succulents. May sound a little weird but trust me it's the best. The blue dried berries and white cotton flowers compliment the minty green and blue succulents beautifully. The branches and twigs work as excellent fillers in this arrangement.

We know about statement jewelry. The one piece that shines above all. But have you ever heard of a statement succulent? In this floral design, we aim to make the bouquet look soft, pretty and radiant too. One large succulent surrounded by soft roses, peonies, anemones and Bruno’s berries is exactly how you can create this look. Another great way is to make an enormous succulent bouquet with a lovely combination of pinks, peaches, and pastels. The floral structures succulents will look stunning against the soft ruffled petals of flowers.
3. Dark, moody tones
Dark, moody tones are easy to create and a very important aesthetic for evening weddings or dark themes. Make a lovely jewel-toned bouquet by using blue succulents with citrus Ranunculus and vibrant dahlias. This will create a lovely, lush bouquet that will be the center of attention. If you wish to use other succulents, then go for it, because the neutral green succulents can complement dark maroon roses beautifully.
4. Bright and vibrant
To make a bright and vibrant arrangement using succulents you'll need lovely bright flowers to pair it up with them. An absolute favorite setting is using sherbet colored flowers, roses if you might get with many small succulents in bulk. This makes a great hand tied looking voluminous bouquet. The small succulents let the flowers pop by staying neutral and acting as fillers. The texture and shape of this arrangement will be different anything you’ve seen before.
5. Classic ivory tones
Many brides do prefer a classic white bouquet. It's timeless and effortlessly elegant. Adding succulents to this arrangement as accents will probably be the best decision you ever make.
