If you’re looking for another way to be ‘green’ with your wedding plans, consider using veggies in your wedding day décor as flower alternatives!
In the world of wedding decor, couples are embracing unconventional and eco-friendly alternatives to traditional floral arrangements. For those seeking a unique and whimsical touch, vegetables have emerged as an unexpected but clever option.
We love the ‘green’ aspect of using veggies and fruits in your wedding day decor as flower alternatives! Not only can they look beautiful, but you can also eat them later! (Just be sure to wash first!)
The vibrant colors, textural variety, and the affordable cost of vegetables can make them a refreshing stand-in for fresh flowers in wedding decor. You know how growing up they told you to eat a colorful plate? Well, produce comes in a variety of colors to fulfill your palette or decorate your wedding day.
