When I think seasonal, I think fruits and veggies. So, I brought you these great ideas to incorporate vegetables and fruits into your wedding day. They’re healthy… they’re fresh… And they come in lost of colors which would give you room to incorporate them into your color palette. Hit the local farmers market and get some yummy treats for your eco-friendly wedding!
Let’s start with the most original idea of all, the Fruit and Veggie Bar. I love the fact that it has a little bit of both worlds, sweet and salty. And it’s a great and healthy alternative for the dessert or candy bar.

When it comes to drinks fitting in fruits is very trouble-free. For an outdoor event put up a lemonade station during the cocktail hour or ceremony to keep everyone thirst free. You can also welcome your guests to your reception with refreshing drinks that are tagged with their table numbers. The chilled mint lemonade shown here is delicious for spring and summer occasions. In the cooler months, serve apple cider. Or serve a fruity signature drink… everyone loves strawberry daiquiris.

Salad is an understandable vegetable dish. Keep your salad out of the box with the greek salad bits. Or serve fruit salad as dessert. I adore these watermelon, kiwi and cheese cubes.
Give edible favors. Utilize your local farmers for jars of jam, fresh honey, or bags of pecans or cherries. Use glass or other material containers that guests can recycle or re-use.
Fruit place cards are pretty yummy. The most popular ones are pears, but peaches, lemons and apples look great as well. Use the one that fits your theme and color palette. The following peach pouches not only are they adorable, but they are both a placecard & a menu!
