The More Exotic the better.
In recent years, a trend that has taken centre stage and added a burst of freshness to wedding decor is the inclusion of fruits and veg in wedding floral displays. This innovative approach not only introduces vibrant colours and unique textures but also infuses a wonderful scent and a sense of playfulness into wedding design.
We thought we’d take a look at what kind of fruit and veg you can incorporate into your wedding styling and how it can elevate your design.
A Riot of Colour
From the deep reds of strawberries to the sunny yellows of lemons, fruits bring a lively and dynamic colour palette to your floral arrangements. Whether you’re aiming for a bold and vibrant celebration or a soft and romantic ambience, the addition of fruits allows you to tailor your floral displays to match your desired aesthetic. Getting married in a Barn? Why not try a little rustic table setting with trailing strawberries, or woodland mushrooms (check to make sure they’re edible first!)
Adding Texture and Depth
Veg and fruits add a layer of texture and depth to your floral arrangements, creating a multi-sensory experience for you and your guests. The smooth surface of apples contrasts beautifully with the velvety petals of roses, while the juiciness of berries introduces a playful element. The juxtaposition of textures adds intrigue and complexity to your wedding florals, making them truly memorable. Try the rough texture of Kiwi fruits intertwined with glossy leaves, or grapes still on the vine?
Lemons, lemons, lemons. There is nothing quite like a touch of citrus to get your mouth watering. Fresh citrus fruit such as lemons cascading from elegant vessels is an instant winner. A zing of yellow and a citrus aroma is enough to please the eye and the nose. Why not try citrus trees down your aisle or in the middle of round tables? Vibrant limes or oranges can work just as well. Oranges, lemons, and limes can be incorporated into bouquets, centrepieces, and even floral archways, infusing the air with a refreshing fragrance that complements the floral aromas. Citrus fruits bring a sense of elegance and sophistication to your wedding decor.
I know we’re probably stating the obvious, but of course, the joy of fruits and veg in wedding flowers is the fact that your guests can tuck into the edible tablescapes! Juicy berries, tangy fruits, crunchy veggies… it’s a nibblers delight!
Aligning your wedding decor with the seasons is a timeless trend, and fruits offer a versatile way to achieve this. Berries and cherries evoke the vibrancy of summer, while apples and pears bring a rustic autumnal charm. Citrus fruits can brighten up a winter celebration, and tropical fruits can transport you to a summer paradise. The seasonal flexibility of fruits ensures that your wedding florals are always in harmony with the time of year.
Whether you choose bold citrus fruits, juicy berries, or the timeless elegance of apples and pears, this innovative approach adds a unique touch to your celebration. Talk to our wonderful florists today to see how you can use fruits and flowers in wedding styling,
