I looked into using succulents and they’re pretty expensive b/c at the floral markets I visited, the succulent selections were for really small ones.  Succulents make for expensive bouquets also because they typically need to be wired in order to have a handle.  I ended up using this lettice like product.  Actually, I’m pretty certain it was real lettice just with the long stalk still attached.  Talk with a florist… they could give you some alternatives if it ends up being too expensive.

I’ve seen it done for centerpieces, but not bouquets.  I love the idea though, if you do it please post photos!

Isn’t Flora Grubb’s site yummy? Their lead wedding designer, Susie Nadler, is extremely nice as well.  The lettuce like alternative that Hotwings mentions is probably ornamental kale, and I think it’s also gorgeous in bouquets! There is a good tutorial on making a succulent bouquet that shows wiring techniques here (not that you were going to make your own) but it’s interesting


succulents are cool because they can be potted and survive indefinitely after the wedding after having been in a bouquet!

I talked to several florists about doing it, since I absolutely love succulents.  Basically, I was told it’s a super expensive option — some stems of succulents can be up to $20 for a single “bloom.”  So, I’m either going with small succulent accents, or none at all.
