Wheat and honey are two elements that were practically born to go together, both in a colour scheme and edible sense. With white as your base colour, this sets a tranquil yet warm ambience which makes it ideal for a late autumn wedding. What’s more, as both elements are 100% natural, wheat and honey provides the ideal platform for an eco-friendly affair. But first, some sweet ideas to get you thinking.
All things Wheat and Wonderful
- Use wheat ears in the floral arrangements and boutonnières, and instead of carrying a bouquet of flowers, opt for a wheat sheaf or a combination of wheat ears and cream-coloured flowers.
- If possible, arrange to have your wedding pictures taken in the middle of a wheat or savannah field close to sunset.
- Have guests toss handfuls of wheat instead of confetti – not only is it in tune with the theme, it’s eco-friendly and most venues will love it.
- Use plenty of tan raffia and burlap to echo the organic feel and texture of wheat – check out the post we recently did on burlap for inspiration.
Bee my Honey…
- Serve honey and cheese platters with a variety of wheaty breads and crackers. Alternatively place a Winnie the Pooh style honey pot on each table, along with fruits and marshmallows to serve as a dessert “fondue”.
- Send each of your guests home with a small jar of honey as guest favour, along with a little wooden honey dipper stick.
- Place bottles of honey mead and jars of homemade honeycomb on the various tables as edible decoration.
- Incorporate the “honey dripping over the edge” effect into the design of your wedding cake – too lovely!
- Set up a pamper station and appoint a beauty therapist to treat your guests to a honey and wheat hand or foot scrub during the cocktail hour.
And don’t forget to pay extra special attention to the cherry on top of this sugary sweet theme – the honeymoon, of course!
