Typically, produce is the garnishing touch--reserved for a few fruits atop the wedding cake and some citrus wedges in the drinks. For the bride who values uniqueness, what better way to bring a twist of freshness to the table than to incorporate fruits and veggies? Oregon brides know that the Pacific Northwest boasts abundant farmer's markets where organic beauty is never in short supply. Those fine agricultural treats can make unexpectedly beautiful additions as table centerpieces, pastry garnishes, or tied up in the bridal bouquet.

Even offered as party favors, the herbaceous plants provide a utilitarian and nutritious gift for your guests. Whether you chose a basket of artichokes for their aesthetic qualities or a bundle of blackberries in the name of ecological soundness, fresh local produce makes a delightful addition to any wedding for the bride who seeks to stand out from the crop.
