But, Since I'm Not Rock and Roll...

... maybe I can be a little bit badass with my rustic-girl styling?

As a kid, the only thing I knew about weddings was that veils were awful and I'd want a flower in my hair (I was an opinionated little feminist who was already indignant about bridal veil origins.)  I may not think veils are awful anymore, but I'm still pro-flower.  And, over the last several years, I've developed a serious crush on succulents: They're the only plants I haven't killed yet, plus they're so structurally and visually interesting. Also, despite the current rain, Los Angeles is a desert and, unfortunately, most of the popular wedding flowers are decidedly not desert blooms.  

I said I wanted a local wedding.  So... succulents for my hair?  What do you think?


  1. YESSSSSSSS! that's what i think :)

  2. Really pretty. I haven't seen succulents in someone's hair before, but it looks lovely. Go for it!

  3. I love this post. I am still iffy about the veil. It looks like flowers for me...maybe.

  4. Great idea! GO for it!!! I did a flower in my hair, no veil. Succulents are a step above. How unique!

  5. how funny! this is ME! :) glad you like! it was a last minute inspiration...then as we arrived in the woods for the ceremony, we found the lovely little moss and added that too! thanks too, for the photography link for Lachlan Burrell Photography! we are all the way over in Australia and appreciate the credit!

    ps...the succulents looked awesome still at the end of the day!
