Herb, Succulent and Other Non-Floral Bouquets

Look beyond flowers. Greens, herbs, succulents and other non-blooming or floral plants are just as gorgeous.

Herb Bouquets

We all know that flowers symbolize certain things – roses for love, violets for loyalty and devotion, lilly-of-the-vally for sweetness – but did you know that herbs have meanings too? More than just tasty things to sprinkle into your supper, these lovely plants make gorgeous bouquets that can symbolize love and romance just as well as flowers can.

Succulents

So, what the heck are succulents, anyway? These somewhat cabbage-like, squat plants have thick, waxy leaves and the ability to store water so as to thrive in arid conditions, much like cacti. There are many, many varieties and a majority of them are really quite lovely. With their range of greens and even purples, they work very well an accent – or as the main focus – of bridal bouquets.

Greens

Greens don't have to be boring. If you don't want to go all green, add a few pops of color with small blooms, flowering plants or less traditional flowers such as craspedia (the little yellow balls) or even thistles.
