When summertime rolls around we all think-VACATION! For a lot of us, our ideal vacation is on a tropical island where we sip fruity cocktails out of coconuts and dance to the sounds of the local jams on white sandy beaches. You can recreate all of those amazing feels for your wedding with floral arrangements that are bursting with intense hues and deep greens that tropical flowers provide.

Our bride’s bouquet by  Beautiful Kreations  is delightfully scattered with protea, larkspur, and alpinia with a split leaf philodendron as the base.

Tropical flowers come in such a variety of colors that complement one another so your color palette doesn’t have to be a long thought over topic. Your florals are sure to be show stopping no matter what combinations you decide! They are hardy flowers that are used to being in hot and humid environments so they will maintain their beauty through the whole day and even longer.

What better way to express lasting love than with bouquets and arrangements filled with succulents. These sturdy plants are all the craze right now. With over 60 succulent families to choose from and each with such unique patterns and bright blooms, you can easily replace the greenery in your bouquets with something unique.

Ever After Floral Design  made this bouquet with the perfect combination of neutrals and greens to compliment our bride’s tranquil oceanfront wedding. It is full of garden roses, ranunculus, eucalyptus leaves, and scattered with various echeveria and graptopetalum succulents.

While most flowers only last for the day, succulents can be replanted to remind you of the day you said “I Do” to your forever love. They also make great wedding favors!
