Succulents for the Big Day

Wednesday, 8 October 2014

Even though our house will probably always be a work in progress, we are starting to work on the finishing flourishes. It’s amazing what a difference a few of your favourite pictures on the wall makes (even though I winced when Jordan started brandishing that famous dollar store hammer on our brand new white walls). New walls called for new pictures - even though our wedding album sits in full view, I seldom open it - it was great to have an excuse to spend the afternoon reliving that day. Our day was perfect but I do wish that I had a little bouquet. At the time, I deemed it overly fussy and unnecessary but it is definitely the missing piece in our photos. Maybe one day we’ll have it over and I can right this tiny little wrong but in the meantime, I’ll live vicariously through the beautiful brides I come across every day. I’m particularly fond of the bouquets of succulents that I have seen popping up all over the internet. How about you? Which flowers did you have/would you have in your wedding bouquet?

  1. OMG those bouquets. Gorge. We were just at a wedding a few weeks ago, and Neel and I reminisced about our own wedding (nearly 20 years ago) on the drive home. It's nice to think there's not a lot we'd change. :) And still, the idea of a do-over (same guy, of course!), has me thinking...

  2. Hi Meghan, It's been too long! As you know, we're suckers for succulents, especially in bouquets. We'd like an "I do" redo, too, and we'd have ours out in a barn somewhere. Hope you are well and enjoying the life down under!

  3. This is the first time I have seen suculents in a wedding bouquet but they look so unusual and effective. Lovely images.

  4. my cousin and succulents and i loved it - though i loved carrying black magic roses as well. deep, red roses in the fall was all the romance and glamour i thought it would be :)
