Tip #51 – How to be a BRIDECHILLA™ by Off The Beaten Path Weddings – Use touches of rosemary for your earth-to-table look.
Off The Beaten Path Weddings is known for being able to combine elegance and nature all on one table scape. We love bringing nature in to our event design process, but only just enough to embellish the already beautiful location of the event. The key is to use just enough, so that the event has a balance of sophisticated decor and organic touches. One of our favorite elements to use is rosemary. And why is that? It works in SO many different ways; and it is so delicate, simple, and plus – it smells amazing! See for yourself below and prepare to be inspired.

Ways to use rosemary in your wedding decor:
DID YOU KNOW: During the middle ages, all elegant weddings utilized the herb rosemary, which is the symbol of remembrance and fidelity. Sprigs were dipped in gold, tied with a ribbon and given to the wedding guests.
All you need to do is type out names, print on cardstock, punch a hole, and stick a little rosemary in… or even tie it with a strand of twine… so easy and it looks beautiful!
This wedding was a stunner! The couple gave each guest baguettes as favors to take home. And to embellish those delicious favors? Rosemary.
