frame the bride and groom at the ceremony. All replantable in the garden afterwards.
I'll be honest, when first approached by the bride about doing this look, I was a little "Hmmmm.....I haven't seen this combo before, I hope it works." But I have to say, there's something about it that really appeals to me. It's more than just combining two of the latest hottest wedding trends (peacock feathers and succulents), there's something about the ethereal lightness of the babies' breath combined with the dense heaviness of the succulents, that totally rocks the quirky, but in a cool and balanced way.
We worked some gray feathery acacia foliage and delicate baby myrtle tips to keep the bouquet from looking too solid. Succulents are visually heavy as well as literally heavy so those tiny bits of greenery help. Oh, and snuck a couple silver brunia in there (gray ball shaped flowers), to bridge the textural divide.
What do you think? Does this combination give you shivers or make you shudder?!
