I absolutely love seeing the unique uses of herbs at weddings. Herbs both smell great and look beautiful. Either fresh or dry, they are sure to add a unique and natural look to your wedding day.

// Fresh Rose + Herb Bouquet: This bouquet is natural and simple with a slight wild feel. It was created using fresh rosemary, sage, and large open ivory roses. Use a different color of rose or even peonies if you have a brighter wedding color palette. Photo by Cluney Photo

// Place Settings + Herbs: A fresh loaf of bread tied with a bit of rosemary add an elegant touch to a wedding table setting. It also provides a snack for your guests while they await the main meal. Photo by Delbarr Moradi

// Herbal Decor: Add a tuft of rosemary, thyme, or mint to hang from the rafters at an indoor or tented reception. Either fresh or dried it is sure to add a fresh and romantic feel. They could also be used in vases as centerpieces. Photo by welovepictures

// Dried Herb + Flower Bouquet: The bouquet pictured is handmade using a variety of preserved flowers, herbs, and wheat. Because they are dried they will not wilt as your wedding day progresses. Dried flowers and herbs can also be used in flower crowns and boutonnieres. Photo by FamilyDriedFlowers
