Succulent Love!

Time for another style lounge installment as featured by Save The Date Magazine yesterday!

If, like me, you enjoy reading some of the gorgeous American wedding blogs like Style Me Pretty and Green Wedding Shoes, you will have noticed a massive trend over the last few years toward using lots of natural elements and textured foliage in bouquets and arrangements. I think we are definitely going to see more of this over here as brides become a bit more daring in their flower and style choices.

The use of succulents in particular is becoming very popular as an accent in both rustic and glamorous wedding styles alike. The perfect choice for adding variety and gorgeous texture to your arrangements.
Here I've used succulents with vibrant coral and pink peonies, roses, dahlias and thistles to create relaxed and informal arrangements perfect for a garden wedding...

Why not try an alternative table linen such as hessian and rustic wooden boxes for your centrepieces to compliment this outdoor country style!
Alternatively, these succulents which have been sprayed silver would be perfect with white roses for a contemporary winter wedding...

Use silvered vases and votives with crisp white linens and geometric table runner designs for a luxurious and stylish celebration.

If you’re looking for a touch of Hollywood glamour why not try gilded succulents with lavish arrangements of gold and white flowers with elegant silvery foliage...perfectly glam!

They are even perfect for the groom who’s looking for something a bit different!
