Unique, Edible Wedding Bouquet, Boutineers, and Arrangements Ideas with Vegetables for Food Lovers

As food lovers, my husband and I centered our wedding theme around our shared passion. Apart from having fantastic (dare I say) food for our dinner reception, our decorations were food themed as well.  Not wanting to waste a single thing, we had edible “floral” arrangements so we could cook and eat everything after.  In particular, my wedding bouquet, my maid of honor and bridesmaid’s bouquets, the boutineers, the corsages, and even the reception table centre pieces were all made from vegetables and herbs.

Check out the photos below if you’re looking for wedding decoration and floral inspirations. Not getting hitched anytime soon? I’d love to hear your feedback regardless ;)

Thank you, Sue at Central Market, for your amazing design and execution. The gorgeous photos are by our good friend, Jason at Table4Weddings.

    These are so gorgeous Mel, makes me want to walk down the aisle again just so I can make it more “Foodie” oriented!

    Cute!  How heavy was your bouquet with that buddah’s hand?

  5. January 25, 2012 by Melody Fury

    Aww thanks, Liz :) Make every anniversary count! xo

  6. January 25, 2012 by Melody Fury

    Thanks, dear! We kept them hydrated :)

  7. January 25, 2012 by Melody Fury

    Thanks Linda :) that means a lot to me!

  8. January 25, 2012 by Melody Fury

    It felt like a solid 10 pounds! In reality, it’s probably… 3? It was heavy.

    WOW, very original concept! I really love the fact that you ate all the veggies, no waste!

  10. January 25, 2012 by Melody Fury

    Thanks! We ate as much as we could!

  11. January 27, 2012 by Leslie Sarna

    Very cool!  Would never have thought to use some of those veggies, but I love it!

  12. January 27, 2012 by Melody Fury

    Thanks, Leslie :) Appreciate the comment!

    Love it! After the wedding, the flowers end up in the trash. The fact you were able to eat it all was fabulous! :)

  14. February 23, 2012 by Melody Fury

    Thanks, dear! We were really happy with our decision to produce as little waste as possible. We had to get creative with cooking all the veg though!

    Dude, this is so awesome!  Glad I ran into your blog after googling chocolate hazelnut souffle!  :)  

  21. July 27, 2012 by Melody Fury

    Thanks, Laila! Glad you like them. I hope the souffle works for you too!

    This is also my plan for our wedding next year. It was so nice to stumble on your photos too! From some radio show, we also got the idea of making our own meat rubs and spice mixes to vial up and give as the guest gift. I’m so excited! Our deco theme is to celebrate fall harvests.

  23. July 13, 2014 by Melody Fury

    That sounds beautiful, Oneeeyedsage! Wishing you all the best on your special day. The rubs are a great idea – I’m sure your guests will love it.

    This is just fabulous and the EXACT inspiration i need for a client of mine who does not want to see a single flower at her wedding. What did you do to keep all those greens from wilting? How soon before the wedding did you make these?

  25. October 15, 2014 by Melody Fury

    Hi John, nice to hear from you! Central Market in Austin delivered the arrangements a few hours before the ceremony. Those greens were simply in water. We didn’t have any issues with wilting. I would recommend more resistant herbs such as rosemary and sage. I imagine softer herbs like basil would wilt quicker. I hope this helps!

    Lovely idea. Those creations take flower arrangement to a whole new level!
