Herb Love: A Wedding Tradition

A wedding tradition steeped in symbolic meaning, fresh herbs are a beautiful addition to any wedding.

The stark white backdrop of the wedding cake is a perfect showcase for edible flowers and foliage. Small-leaved herbs and miniature rosebuds and carnations, sage tips, chamomile, thyme, hyssop, or borage flowers work best. Small herbal corsages can be attached to the cake knife and the guest book pen with ribbon. Sachets of herbal potpourri can be left for guests at each place setting.
