Flower Arranging Recipes - Succulent Bridal Bouquets



Flower Recipes for Succulent Bridal Bouquets

Thanks for purchasing our DVD, "How to Create a European Wrap Bouquet." Here are three recipes for you to create a beautiful bridal or bridesmaid bouquet. After you make a few, you'll be able to substitute all types of flowers. Have fun and experiment. Don't be afraid to try new flower combos. Get inspired on our Pinterest boards and always do a mockup trial before you do a big event so you know exactly how many stems you'll need.

A good rule of thumb is to use about 30 stems for a bridal bouquet.
Want to learn how to add succulents to a bouquet? Watch our YouTube.com video "How to Create a Succulent Bridal Bouquet" and then order our Hand-Tied Bouquet DVD to learn how to incorporate the stems into a hand-tied bouquet. You can find succulent bridal bouquet flower recipes on our website, too.


White Roses and Varied Succulents

White Roses Succulent Bouquet
As seen in the Succulent Bridal Bouquet How-To video we created, this is a photo of the finished bouquet. Incorporate a wired succulent into the bouquet as you would any other floral or greenery stem as we show you on our DVD "How to Create a European Wrap Bouquet." TIP...this type of succulent bouquet is very heavy! When you use a lot of succulent rosettes, be sure your bride is ready to carry this heavy bouquet throughout her day.
