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

Posted by on Jan 24, 2012

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.

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

    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.

    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.
