Whether you envision a more minimal, modern bouquet or something deliciously romantic, adding a succulent element can take your bridal style to another level of chic. Succulents are native to hot weather climates, so they are perfect for a destination beach wedding.

I have loved echiveria forever, since my first days in the flower market in NYC, shopping at 5AM for the freshest blooms. They are both earthy and ethereal, with soft, elegant colors that work with any palette you might choose. 

For my Karen Bussen Wedding Collection, designed exclusively for Weddings by Palladium, I’ve created a number of different Couture Bouquet styles that feature echiveria. Take a look here…

Or, if you want to start with another base bouquet, such as those that are included in my Wedding Collections, you can feel free to ask your Wedding Coordinator to add in a succulent element. They’ll be happy to communicate your wishes to our local florist partners!
