The best Ideas for a Berry Wedding
Maybe you’re a big fan of fruit elements in wedding florals. All sorts — apples, cherry tomatoes, figs — but especially raspberries and blackberries. You wouldn’t go wrong incorporating berries into your wedding day style, and here’s some inspiration to use – berry inspired wedding ideas that are romantic and beautiful.
Berry Wedding Colour Combinations
No matter if you and your groom are planning a winter or a summer wedding, these seasons are filled with beautiful seasonal leaves and red berries for your wedding ideas. The berries provide a wide choice of elegant rich shades of red, with the darker shades giving your big day a rich, sophisticated feel. A colour palette comprised of grey shades, hunters green, plum, and deep berry hues, can be a perfect complement to your stunning surroundings. Another great berry wedding idea is to think about gold as an elegant companion, with the berry colours showing off your golden chargers and china.
Be extra creative and come up with original berry wedding ideas, incorporating bright-red berries into your wedding flowers. Play around with all the berry-inspired shades in your floral arrangements. There is also no reason why you can’t make use of all the different berry colours simultaneously, as they complement one another so beautifully. We here at When Freddie met Lilly in Brisbane just love the contrasting tones of the different variety red berries, like those of the hypericum, pepper berry (which is modern and chic), snowberry, ilex (the larger berry), ranunculus, raspberry, blueberry and blackberry. Even simply using mini raspberry arrangements (without greenery) stuck into small glass pots, or berries packed around small (lit) candles – in glasses, are good ideas.
Fresh blueberries, blackberries, and other berries look original in all the bouquets at the ceremony. The groom and mens’ boutonnieres can use a little berry texture as well, like a raspberry and billy ball boutonniere. Or simply use a few festive branches of ilex-berry tied together with a satin ribbon.
Create a romantic look filled with tons of texture and a touch of vintage elements in your place setting. A sprig of bright-red berries added to your table scape will do the trick. For an evening reception, you can pair silk runners with locally grown flowers, and warm candlelight. The resulting design will be rich, romantic, and incredibly beautiful. Round it all off with some rich scattered strawberry and raspberry-coloured petals for pure romance..
Use an elegant, deep-red centerpiece of garden roses containing lots of different textures, like a blackberry and peach garden rose arrangement in a white vase, or a raspberry and blackberry arrangement in a glass pot. Also blackberry and raspberry mini centerpieces (with green leaves) in tin pots work well.
Berry Cocktails and Berry Wedding Cake
For cocktails, make sure you serve a blackberry gin fizz, decorated with a berry leaf! Or how about a peach and blackberry sangria. Your small bites during cocktail hours can also be inspired by the juicy fruit of the season. Maybe you decide to go for a fresh berry appetizer in a glass (removed from the leaves), or even choose to pass out fresh berries during your event.
Don’t forget to decorate your plain white wedding cake with lots of fresh raspberries and strawberries, sprinkling a handful of bright-red ranunculus buds and hypericum berries on each tier.
The perfect Gowns for a Berry Wedding
Finally have a look at our incredible wedding dress designs here at When Freddie met Lilly. Choose a dress like the Dannish gown from our Dakota range, maybe in soft peach that would fit in perfectly with a berry wedding. Imagine lilac, a rich berry, and a touch of green and yellow leaves together, for your gorgeous all-berry bridal bouquet (or with the same colours in your flower crown.) Another idea is to use an oversize freeform bouquet which includes white and coral-pink peonies, garden roses, and fresh greenery mixed with red hypericum berries – for added texture and depth.
Your bridesmaids can be dipped in rich raspberry as well, a shade that suits their complexion the best, of course. Soft, sleek, sassy and a killer of a head turner! Our Milla Maxi dress in chiffon here at When Freddie met Lilly, in a berry colour, or the Bow cocktail dress, maybe in soft lilac, is the perfect bridesmaid gown.
Last but not the least, consider a burgundy-toned velvet jacket for the groom on your berry wedding!
You can use fresh berries or even just the different berry colours to “bring nature in” to your very special day. Decide on this theme especially if want to accentuate your natural surroundings or you just simply look fantastic in berry red – for an unforgettable wedding day!
