1. Blueberry Wedding Venue
The best way to incorporate blueberries into your wedding theme is to start with having your big day at a blueberry farm! We're located in Mims, FL and our white wedding barn is nestled amidst a 17 acre vineyard of blueberries. The ceremony and the reception are surrounded by luscious and beautiful blueberry bushes.
But even without a venue quite as blueberry infused as an actual blueberry farm, there are still so many ways to incorporate blueberries into your overall wedding theme. The key is to find small, subtle ways to include blueberries and here are several ideas on how to do that.
2. Wedding Invitations
The first way you can introduce your guests to your blueberry theme is with your Wedding Invitations.
Styled For Two creates gorgeous invitations with watercolor blueberry art. The adorable printed envelope liner and envelope seal provide a vintage-like touch that really ties everything together. These invitations are a fun and elegant way to give your guests a hint of what's to be expected on your wedding day.
If you are looking to go the DIY route, there is shabby chic Etsy shop called KayleighDuMond that has a very classy blueberry design printable invitation available for purchase. This is a great way to save money on invitations, without having to go through the entire design process yourself.
3. Table Arrangements
A great way to incorporate blueberries into your wedding day, is by using them as accent pieces for your table arrangements.
Adding a few plump little jewels to your tables can have stunning results. Consider using a dark blue in your wedding color scheme, to truly boost the blueberry wedding essence.
Another great idea, is to add a simple blueberry image to your reception dinner menu and guest place cards.
All of these tiny details, truly come together to create a romantic blueberry environment for your guests. Add in the vineyard like feel of the perfect venue and your blueberry wedding vibe will shine through in the most classy and unique way possible.
4. Food and Drinks
This brings us to our fourth and most delicious way to incorporate blueberries into your wedding day. From blueberry-enhanced water, to a blueberry pork sauce, the sky is the limit with ways that you can use blueberries in your wedding menu.
Talk to your caterer and develop your own favorite blueberry recipes, desserts, and drinks. This is a perfect additional touch to your blueberry themed wedding. Two Chicks and a Pot catering company specializes in creating custom menus that fit every bride's personal needs. They can provide multiple blueberry themed options for your big day.
Don't forget to include blueberries in your wedding cake design. Adding a few berries to a simple, white cake can result in pure blueberry elegance.
Don't forget to design a great signature drink and add a handful of blueberries to each glass. You can also choose to provide blueberry wine at each table, which ties in great with the vineyard-like feel of a blueberry farm. We found this delicious looking Blueberry Mojito recipe at DIY Wedding Magazine. It looks like the perfect, sophisticated signature drink for your rustic blueberry wedding.
5. Floral Arrangements
Our next tip for planning the ultimate blueberry themed wedding is to add blueberries into your floral design. If you are planning an April-June wedding you can even find fresh blueberries at Ever After Farms U-Pick Blueberry farm. Talk to your florist about different ways that you can use blueberries or navy blue in your wedding bouques and floral arrangements. Keep the blueberry embellishments sparse and simple, to gracefully enhance the gorgeous flowers you've chosen. When choosing flowers, consider creams and whites to really make those blueberries pop.
