Personalize your earthy and organic wedding with affordable herbs instead of flowers!

Personalize your earthy and organic wedding with affordable herbs instead of flowers!

If you’re not a big flower lover, or are looking to save some cash on your wedding day, consider an herbal inspired wedding! Not only does this array of greenery provide a beautifully earthly look, it also smells great, which adds to the whole experience of your wedding. A palette of muted green hues with a touch of gray and lavender works well with any season and enhances the organic look.

Bouquets and boutonnieres tied with twine are a perfect compliment to the herbal assortment of rosemary, lavender, and sage, not to mention extremely cost effective.

A soft bridal gown with a vine-like floral print like this Naaem Kahn stunner perfectly fits the bill. This silhouette is also flattering on just about any body type.

Muted hues are the perfect complement for the bridesmaids. Working all of your wedding colors into bridal party ensembles keeps your theme running throughout the celebration and lets each bridesmaid create her own look.

Herbal touches throughout the decor make gorgeous detail photos that won’t look dated in years to come. Pairing herbs with small vintage bottles and twine is also an easy and inexpensive DIY project.

Another great DIY idea is individual herbal infused olive oil bottles for favors. Your guests will love getting something they can actually use! After all, who doesn’t love rosemary olive oil?

Swapping out the traditional cake garnish of fresh flowers for herbs is a unique and less costly touch. Go for classic buttercream instead of smooth fondant to add a more organic feel to your wedding cake.

This vintage-meets-modern organic inspiration is sure to be a hit with couples looking for a minimalist take on wedding colors and theme. The soft shades of green, lavender and gray enhance the earthy feel of flowing gowns and rustic glassware. Surrounded by soft colors and the sweet smell of herbs, guests can’t help but breath in the wonderful feel of your herbal inspired wedding celebration!
