Having just gone through the summer wedding period, it’s been interesting to note the popular flower choices for bouquets among brides this year and one in particular has been particularly popular and for very good reason.
Succulents have been one of the favoured bouquet flowers of the season. One of the reasons why is that they’re available all year round and don’t present any seasonal concerns and don’t wilt in the heat.
We recently did a wedding, where the bride chose a beautiful combination of green and grey succulents to contrast the white roses in her bouquet. It turned out to be a gorgeous arrangement and when we added a ring of doda vine to finish it off, I must say, it looked like a work of art if I do say so myself!

Hey guess what? These succulents were grown organically from our very own Miss Maggies Farm!
Over the years, I’ve created lots of beautiful bouquets but there are some styles that I’m always asked about! So I thought it might be helpful to brides to talk about some of my most popular bouquets and this is one of them! I think one of the reasons it’s so popular is because the colour of the roses are so eye catching.
The colour is called “Champagne” and it can be described a few ways; sometimes as a very pale pink or a pale, peachy cream colour. It’s a really soft colour too, so it’s great for brides that want a hint of colour but do not want to be over taken by stronger coloured flowers. In between the roses are white freesias which smell so fresh and beautiful. For this bouquet, we haven’t used any foliage at all but what’s a little different is that the we used artificial doda vine to wrap over the brides maid’s bouquets to add a more rustic feel to the bouquets.
Using artificial doda vine meant that I was able to easily move the vine across the top of the flowers to ensure that it was evenly spaced. We also chose artificial as we didn’t want the doda vine to catch on the brides maid’s dresses as they were wearing a light chiffon material. Food for thought when choosing your flowers 🙂
Finally my van is finished & I love it! Covered with flowers….well most of it, if you see me on the road, please stop and say hello! Instantly recognisable now, you won’t miss me around Adelaide or the Barossa!
