Fruit Bouquets

Flowers are a beautiful addition to any wedding, but they aren't the only plant from your garden you can use on your special day. Fruits and vegetables can make stunning bouquets, arrangements and even boutonnieres. They also have the added benefit of being a bit hardier than many flowers so you can create fruit and vegetable arrangements and expect them to look fresh, even after a few days stored in the fridge.

Beautiful Fruits

You can use almost any fruits or vegetables for your bouquet, but there are a few things to keep in mind when choosing. Color will be your first consideration since you want your bouquet to match your wedding colors, but don't forget about weight. Try to stick with berries, peppers or other small fruits. For example, use clementines or kumquats instead of oranges.

Creating Stems

Not all fruits and vegetables will have stems attached, so you will need to create your own to attach them to your bouquet. Use floral wire stiff enough to support the weight of your chosen fruit. Create a spiral on one end and twist gently into the fruit to hold it securely.

Clusters of Berries

For smaller berries you can place them individually on wires, or create clusters. You can form "flowers" by arranging berries and wiring those arrangements together.
