Herbal Inspiration

For me, it all started with this photo:

I’d give up chocolate, DVR, and audiobooks for a year to go to a wedding here, wouldn’t you? I saw it a while ago and since then I have been in love with herbal details in weddings.

Even some chair decor!

A simple herb placed on a place setting is a great way to continue the feel:

Herbal swags can be placed around the ceremony and venue too:

Are you planning on using herbs in your floral arrangements? Also, if anyone is having a wedding like the one at the top, invite me please? Thanks :)
