Strawberry Wedding Invitations

Your wedding invitation should state the kind of wedding you're having - black-tie, formal, casual, etc - so your guest will know what to expect and prepare accordingly. Ideally, it should also reflect your wedding theme.

If you're having a strawberry wedding the, the obvious thing to do is include the image of the fruit in your invitations.

But if you'd rather keep it not too "fruity", you can opt to just incorporate the colors of strawberries in your invitation.

Strawberries are in the shades of red and pink. When used with green as a second color, it results in a nice color combination: strawberries being red/pink, and the leaves, green. But don't limit yourself to green. There are also other colors that go well with strawberry hues.

And if you're using just the color, you have more freedom to to design using other elements like flowers, geometric patterns and whatever you like. Just make sure that your design is still in with the mood of your wedding theme (if it's light and casual or more formal).

Strawberry Wedding Favors

Wedding favors are small token of appreciations to show gratitude to your guests for coming to your wedding. They can also serve as souvenirs of your wedding, something that your families and friends will remember your wedding by.

The easiest way is to give strawberry fruits as wedding favors. If you love to cook for your friends, you can also make homemade strawberry jams and put them in personalized mason jars.

Again, you don't need to use the actual fruit. For example, you can have sweets and candies in strawberry flavor and place them in cute jars and boxes. Or the favor doesn't have anything to do with strawberries. Use styled containers and design the labels with strawberries to still match the theme.

Strawberry Wedding Wardrobe

Using strawberries in your wedding dress ensemble can be tricky. But with some creativity, you and the whole wedding party can pull off showing the strawberry wedding theme through your clothes and accessories. Here, we'll take a look at how strawberries can adorn the bride and the rest of the wedding party as part of their outfits.

Bridesmaids dresses are like accessories, they should complement the bridal gown. If you're having a strawberry wedding theme, the bridesmaids can echo the theme on their dresses (and they should, especially if the bride chose not to wear anything strawberry).

Strawberry Wedding Bouquet

Strawberries have a nice range of red and pink colors and they look like flower buds. This makes it easy to incorporate them into the bridal bouquet, boutonnieres and other wedding accessories. Mix red (strawberries) and white (flowers) - the colors of Strawberries and Cream. Or pink and red. You can even use unripe strawberries if you don't like the pop of red in your bouquet. Strawberries and flowers, they just go together perfectly.

You can also have an all-strawberry bouquet for a more intense "strawberry" effect. It will look just as beautiful.

Strawberry Wedding Hair and Accessories

Using strawberries as part of the hairdo or hair accessories can be challenging, but very doable. Using too much strawberries may end up weird and tacky. But There are ways to do it that will look lovely and stylish.

The trick is to use strawberries sparingly. Use them as accent and not the main focus in your hair accessory. Strawberries provide a vibrant pop of red when used with white flowers.

If you' rather not wear the fruit on your hair, use a hair color in Strawberry shade instead. And if you can't use the fruit nor the color, pick a hair accessory that has strawberry design. Discreet, but still adds that touch of strawberry that reflects your wedding theme.

Strawberry Wedding Shoes

Unless you're donning a short wedding dress, you can go wild and crazy with your wedding shoes. After all, they can be hidden for most part of your wedding. Or even if you're wearing a short wedding dress, you can still give some of these cute and very strawberry wedding shoes a try. They can provide an interesting detail especially for the wedding photographers.
