Some Fruity Inspiration

September 24th, 2013

What’s a wedding trend we currently love? Fruit-inspired weddings! There have recently been many wedding appearances by each season’s favorite fruits. This past summer, we saw lots of peaches and pineapples and now with fall already underway, we would like to share some fruits that will add a nice touch to any wedding aiming to incorporate seasonal details.

It’s officially apple picking season and we love the idea of incorporating these tasty fruits into the big day. They make great centerpieces, chair displays and even wonderful additions to a fall bouquet. Not only are they the perfect element for modern décor, they also make a great dessert. Include a table of sweets ranging from candied apples and pies, to hot apple cider for everyone to enjoy.

Whether it’s strawberries, blueberries, blackberries or raspberries, there’s no question that adding a mix of these fruits are lovely for a fall wedding. Their jewel toned colors make a great palette to start with and you can mix and match each of the colors from anything to the bridesmaid dresses to the floral arrangements. One idea we love when including berries is giving vintage paper bags to the crowd so they can stuff a variety of berries in it to snack on throughout the night!

With October approaching, it’s time to go crazy for pumpkins and we certainly have in the wedding world! Pumpkins of all shapes and sizes make a wonderful seasonal piece at a fall wedding. You can have fun carving meaningful designs into them, such as your monogram, or line them up along the aisle.  They also make great props to hold in wedding photos, so be sure to have them ready for the camera.

Using seasonal fruits for more than tasting purposes can quickly turn a wedding into a fun nod to the season at hand. No matter what time of year it is, there is no doubt a fruit that can be incorporated into a wedding, so get your creativity flowing with some juicy fruits!

See You Soon,
