You saw it here first. The next hot wedding flower trend is to use giant king proteas in your wedding day arrangements. It's really no wonder because these oversized flowers are just about as versatile as succulents. They thrive in arid climates so they're super hearty (no soft petals here!), they grow naturally in a range of colors (from white to pale yellow, soft pink, bright coral and even a deeper burgundy), and they can take a typical bouquet to seriously stunning. Take a look!
