20 Wedding Bouquets and Arrangements Packed with Fresh Herbs
It's common for future brides and grooms to lean heavily on traditional blooms and greenery for their wedding-day floral arrangements, but it's important to note that classic varieties aren't your only options. In fact, there are many ways to make your wedding flowers feel fresh—including using herbs in your big-day decorations. More and more couples are turning towards these unexpected plants for the many benefits they offer. Besides looking beautiful (both on their own or when paired with other plants!), herbs smell incredible, too. Eucalyptus, mint, and lavender, particularly, exude a relaxing aroma. The best part? They're perfect for calming your nerves before your walk down the aisle.
Herbs can also play up popular big-day themes. Any bohemian bride would look angelic in an herbal flower crown, for example—it's a sweet way to incorporate the wedding's aesthetic into a bride's ensemble. You can include herbs in the groom's boutonnière for the same effect, too. For a farm-style wedding, opting for an herb-filled arrangement is an easy choice. Chances are, you can pick the plants straight from your venue's grounds, like Blush Designs did for this display. Lavender broke up the peony-centric arrangement and added a rustic element; the fragrant. The purple sprigs also referenced the event's locale and proved that herbal bouquets can also be colorful (not just green!).
Best of all, herbs are known for being budget-friendly. Placing fresh, potted herbs on your reception tables is an affordable décor solution that'll impress your guests. Alternatively, these plants can serve as an arrangement filler that'll help you save in a big way. Overall, displaying herbs will elevate your day without costing you. If you aren't convinced yet, the ahead herb wedding bouquets and arrangements should do the trick.
