herbs at weddings

From Left to Right/ Top to Bottom:

ONE: Bouquets– they’re the perfect place to start with herbs! The scent, the muted colours, the delicate greenery… why opt for traditional filler when you could choose stand outs like these?

TWO: This Tuscan wedding captured our hearts from the moment it popped up on Pinterest. Can you blame us? Heaps and heaps of potted herbs paired with jars upon jars of candles. It’s dreamy.

THREE: Doesn’t this checkered bow tie make you cheerful? Well, that and the buttoner! Fresh herbs are a great alternative for men who don’t want to have girly florals (some men are dead against it!).

FOUR: All white cakes certainly have a place in classic weddings. Topped with fresh flowers and now… herbs! This lovely cake looks like it’s wearing a crown of herbs on each layer!

FIVE: I have to say, I would love an herb crown like this. Sage and lavender? It would smell amazing! The muted soft colours of these herbs can’t be beat either.

SIX: I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s walked away from a wedding wondering what on earth to do with the favour. I can guarantee I would not be questioning what to do with a potted herb! Not only are these favours stunning to look at- they’ll be a total hit!

SEVEN: How simply perfect is this? Bunches of fresh rosemary were hung above reception tables at this rustic wedding. The scent must have been divine!

EIGHT: Speaking of bunches of rosemary… Not all of us have gorgeous wood beamed ceilings to feature. But what do we all have? Tables. We love this simple way of finishing off table runners with twine and herbs.

NINE: Dress up the simplest of escort cards with a spring of rosemary (or any fresh herb for that matter) for unbeatable charm.

TEN: One from our archives, we can’t get enough of herbs as edible garnishes. Whether you tie them to baguettes at each place setting or add a spring to a plated appetizer- we’ll never complain.


Tell us- what do you think of this trend? You’re not about to change our mind 😉 If I had to pick a favourite image from above… it would be the floral crown. Because I want one so. darn. bad. But I could also stare at that cake for days! What about you?
