Fresh and fruity – the all-natural trend that’s sweeping the summer wedding scene

Fruity – the trend that’s sweeping the wedding scene.

When it comes to the wedding trends of 2023, the fresh fruit wedding cake is certainly a late entrance. A twist on the classic fruit cake, fresh displays are made for summer weddings as Brides explains:

“With summer also comes the option to add plenty of colour to your wedding palette… from your reception décor to your bouquet and bridesmaid dresses, it’s also the perfect opportunity to really embrace adding fruit into the mix to make a splash. Not only will this addition embellish your cake in the most beautiful, colourful way, it also adds a touch of creativity, thinking outside the box of the typical floral or fondant adornments.”

It’s not just on the wedding cake front where fresh fruit is making its mark! The use of fresh fruit as table décor is taking off. Yes, your fruit bowl may be one of the most surprising sources of wedding inspiration but it offers plenty of food for thought! We share the freshest and most fruitiest centrepiece ideas out there right now.

When life gives you lemons

Nothing says “summer” like a bright and beautiful colour scheme, and things don’t get much sunnier than a yellow wedding theme. With this in mind, there’s a lot you can do with a lemon on your big day.

From a lemon wedding cake and a lemon-themed dessert table to decorating with potted lemon trees and individual lemons combined with rustic olive branches, there’s much to love. Using lemons throughout your wedding day is also the perfect way to embody that fresh, fruity trend.

Peachy clean centrepieces

Peaches are another pretty, picture-perfect fruit that can be used to create some winning centrepieces for those wedding tables.

As well as offering a delicate, beautiful colour that pairs perfectly with greenery and seasonal flowers in muted tones, peaches provide the texture that makes any table display the complete package.

Dark, moody and fruity

You don’t have to stick to soft or brightly coloured fruits to complement the summer season. Exploring the other end of the spectrum by choosing fruits that are darker in colour will ensure a deep, romantic hue that is lovely to look at whatever the season. Think blackberries, figs, plums, blood oranges and red pears.

These darker-hued fruits look brilliant when combined with dusty pink roses and other foliage, especially when accented with metallics like gold.

Pretty pineapples all in a row

Think beyond choosing different types of fruits to create elegant centrepieces for your wedding tables. Whether it’s a tropical vibe you’re looking to instil or you love the colours of this fantastic fruit, lining up a selection of pineapples can ensure a showstopping yet simple display that has summer vibes written all over it!

Alternatively, pineapples can be used as a creative way to display table numbers or as some seriously fabulous favours for your wedding guests – just add a handwritten note.
