Herb it Up!

More and more, herbs are becoming a permanent fixture on the modern day wedding scene. They are the perfect touch to so many aspects of your wedding. They add a rustic feel and a wonderful, fresh and unexpected fragrance.

And…….. this can totally be a DIY project. Spend time with your honey and grow some rosemary, basil, thyme, whatever your little heart  desires. Trust me if I can grow herbs, anyone can. I have what I like to call a black thumb, because that is the color my plants turn because apparently watering them is not a priority for me :) Anywho, seeds are cheap and they go a long way. You will have bundles and bundles of herbs before you know it and a wonderful addition to your wedding day!

Here are a few idea’s to get the ball rolling:

Finally! A purple drink! Whew, that took long enough huh? Brides have been a huge fan of lavenders, plums and violets for years so why not bring the regal hue out in your cocktail as well? Guests will love sipping these pretty and tasty drinks at any time of the year!

Sky Lanterns

You may have seen sky lanterns used in movies such as The Hangover 2 or possibly on The Bachelorette if you are a loser like me (I eat it up. Fo Real.). While you will most certainly want to check in with the Fire Marshall to make sure these are legal in your area, using sky lanterns can make for a wonderful and romantic moment.

How great would these be in the background of a photo of you and your groom? Have your guests write a note of well wishes and send them off in the lanterns! So cute!
