Your Wedding Five-a-Day: Veggies

Fruit as centerpieces and fruit in bridal bouquets? Then there’s fruit on wedding cake, and even fruit used as place card holders. Fruit has definitely found its way into the modern day wedding for a lot of brides and grooms, with beautiful (and tasty) results. But what about the fruit’s more savory cousin, the vegetable? I’m not about to argue that fruit is prettier or lends itself more readily to use in centerpieces and such. Vegetable centerpieces are just as easy to DIY – just check out this video – and the arrangements below. Vegetables can even be used in a bridal bouquet, as demonstrated by floral designer Robert Blancaflor. Best part? Veggies are a lot cheaper than flowers for the bride who is on a budget!











Aren’t these pics all just gorgeous? The reception centerpieces are all super easy to DIY, though I can’t say I’d be the first person to stand up and choose that particular bridal bouquet. I do think that vegetables can be used in bouquets to good effect if you mix things up with some flowers, some vegetables, and some bridal bouquet accessories!

    The series finale of “The Vicar of Dibley” had veggies as wedding decorations.

    The artichoke is just amazing, as well as hot chili culiflowers bouquet. Eat your bouquet! Compliments for great invention. Happy 2011!
