Remember that "no flower rule" the bride implemented? Well, to be honest I was kinda freaking out about it. Sure, there are lots of other ideas for centerpieces and bouquets, and I presented a few of them here, but none of these alternate solutions were really doing it for me. Truth is, I like living things. Flowers and greenery bring LIFE to an event, not just color and beauty. In a last ditch effort I threw a couple succulent photos toward the bride, and wouldn't you know, she liked them!! (We won't talk about the fact that I had presented those same photos to her earlier in the process and she had said no to them at that point. :)
We got the go ahead from the groom and then started brainstorming on how to incorporate them into the decor. Here are a couple of the ideas!
Boutineers @ Engaged & Inspired
Favors @ Oh Lovely Day
Bouquet @ Ruffled
(I realize this bouquet has actual flowers in it, but you get the idea:)
Centerpieces @ Style Me Pretty
If anyone has any other great succulent ideas send them my way!
