The Sweetest Ways to Use Berries Throughout Your Entire Wedding

Berry wedding color palettes are extremely popular (we personally love them, too), but if you're really obsessed with the small fruits, we recommend taking your event design to the next level and incorporating actual berries (or realistic renditions of them) into your celebration. Natural décor is practically a wedding must-have, but flowers and greenery aren't your only options. Produce—including berries—makes a memorable addition to any aspect of your big day. To prove it to you, we've rounded up a number of genius berry wedding ideas.

Berries work well for casual summer weddings (they're a huge part of the season's harvest), but you really can use them at any type of event, from a rustic fall fête, to a whimsical spring celebration, to a formal winter affair. Plus, because they come in a range of shades depending on variety and ripeness (think: red, blue, purple—and even green, yellow, and orange—hues), they can seamlessly fit into any type of color scheme. Whether you focus on their delicious tastes or simply adore how berries look, the menu and décor possibilities are plentiful.

The first example on our list of beautiful and fun berry ideas for weddings? This sweet naked confection by Leaf & Crumb, which had cranberries, raspberries, and strawberries displayed atop its cake stand and two tiers. If this design is right up your alley, you'll love what we've spotlighted ahead. From blackberry wedding centerpieces to blueberry wedding place settings, there's tons to savor on the following slides.
