Castroville, CA (PRWEB) September 25, 2013
While many brides opt for traditional flowers that quickly fade, a recent trend of using succulent bridal bouquets is spreading from the West, where these low-water, resistant plants thrive. Marialuisa Kaprielian, owner of Succulently Urban, a succulent arrangement design firm, will be demonstrating to floral professionals and enthusiasts how to create a beautiful succulent bridal bouquet at this year’s Succulent Extravaganza.
Kaprielian, who has been designing succulent floral arrangements for more than 10 years, frequently works with brides looking for unique floral bouquets and centerpieces. Her succulent bridal bouquets, succulent combs, and succulent boutonnieres can be shipped anywhere without compromising their quality.
“Besides lasting longer than fresh cut flower bouquets, succulent bouquets are sustainable; when you are done with them you can replant them. Succulents are also available all year 'round,” explained Kaprelian.
At Succulent Extravaganza, Kaprielian will illustrate how to cut succulents for a bouquet, as well as how to wire the blooms to ensure stability. She will also teach attendees how to tie the bouquet and dress it, as well as how to care for the finished product. Her event will be at 3 pm at the event in Castroville, California on September 27, 2013.
