Herbs may be combined with your bouquet as well as any arrangements and decorations you might choose for your wedding venue. Your wedding planner in Malta, can help you source locally grown fresh herbs. Most herbs grow very well in Maltese soil and the sunshine ensures vibrant colours and wonderful fragrances.
You can mix herbs with your favourite blooms, I have picked my favourites, blowsy roses with rosemary and sage, peonies with mint, lavender with baby’s breath, daisies with fennel and dill weed to name a few.
Or be a bit more daring? and use them with seasonal fruit, providing a fragrant riot of colour, you can include miniature lemons and oranges, pomegranates and apples. Decorations may also include berries and other soft fruit, though I would strongly advise against including them in hand held bouquets as they squash easily.
Every herb is linked to an emotion or feeling, lending a deeper meaning to using them on your special day, here are a few;
- Rosemary for remembrance and beautiful memories
- Chamomile for good luck
- Lemon balm (Melissa) for happiness (and it is a great mosquito and fly repellent, perfect for outdoor weddings)
- Orange blossom, lavender and bay leaves are associated with love
- Mint and basil mint for clarity and basil for reciprocated love
Your wedding planner can provide advice and suggestions to help transform you dream into reality, for an unforgettable wedding in Malta!
