In order to incorporate the very best of nature into your wedding, there is nothing more beautiful than enjoying the colours from our natural environment; those tones so full of energy can play a huge part in your big day, especially if you’re capable of creating a style full of bright and pretty fruits. The delicious taste of these little delicacies won’t just add a unique note to your wedding, but you will also please the most fussy of palates. A real pleasure for all senses. Don’t miss these magnificent ideas!
On the most important day of your lives, let your imagination and creativity run wild. If you’re prepared to create a unique style, where colours and nature are the stars of the show, why not include the vivid tones of fruits? A real trend for summer weddings in 2014, fruits will really allow you to play with every detail of your decor; those details that make your event stand out from the very first moment. Show your guests that you are unique in every sense and delight them with delicious tastes and an original design.
If you’re thinking that this theme might be a little difficult to create, you’re wrong! Fruits allow you to create a setting where nature is present in every aspect. Your wedding is outdoors? Perfect! With a setting in natural daylight there are thousands of ways in which you can incorporate these pretty, edible details. You’ll find that your ideas are so easy to put into practice as the versatility of fruit and their different shapes and colours are ideal to add a touch of freshness and life to your wedding.
A great example for your wedding reception, would be to create table names with the help of a tasty peach, a lemon, an orange or a green apple; this way, when your guests arrive at your reception venue, they can look for their names amongst the delicious fruits. This is definitely something they will never forget! If you want to take this theme to another level why not go all out with a fruit stall. A great alternative to a dessert table! Instead of a huge range of sweet treats, your guests can refresh themselves and feast upon a selection of seasonal fruits. Make sure you include a wide range of shapes and colours: bananas, cherries, watermelons, apples, strawberries… and always seasonal fruits when possible.
During your reception, let your tables really enhance your theme and style them with some vibrant, fruity centrepieces. It’s really important that you either stick to your chosen colours or chose contrasting colours that will complement each other and not clash. For example, peaches are a great colour choice for a vintage wedding; a good dose of oranges and lemons will add a touch of vibrance and zest to your wedding, while red fruits will create a completely rustic and warm feel for your special day. Why not choose your favourite fruits? Isn’t your wedding supposed to be all about you?
Don’t forget to include fruits into the bridal bouquet; some berries or a couple of satsumas will be enough to really add to the whole theme. For dessert, why not go for a naked cake with a minimalist look, so that you can then integrate matching fruits.
