The idea of a “lemon wedding” is perfect for those who love a rustic, and at the same time, elegant and refined setting. It is a theme that can be exploited in every season, both in summer and in winter, declined in different types of colors, from the hottest and brightest during the summer season, to the softest and coldest for winter.
Today I want to share with you every detail of this wedding idea.
Shining, colorful and fragrant! If you get married during the summer, this theme is really perfect for a country-chic, Mediterranean-inspired wedding; the parfum of citrus will bring a breath of freshness to the reception. The ideal location, for a lemon-wedding in summer, is certainly the Amalfi Coast, with its countless terraces overlooking the sea.
The yellow of the lemons and the cedars, the purple of Bougainville or the orange of mandarin, immediately recall our mind to the sun and to the open spaces. These colors go well with grapefruit pink, for a more delicate palette of colors, and lime green, to stay on the theme of freshness.
Lemons give endless creative possibilities, ranging from rustic to elegant. Starting from the ceremony , where you can place wicker baskets full of lemons, with their green leaves and some seasonal flowers, repeating the decorative pattern on the reception table
Citrus fruits can be used whole or cut into slices, alone or in combination with flowers, such as roses and lisianthus, or green leaves, such as eucalyptus and olive branches.
Look at this ideas for your summer lemon-wedding.
The coordinated graphic design of a wedding is very important. Imagine the beauty of stationeries in tune with your lemon-themed wedding. To do that we could prefer citrus paintings in watercolor, that will give a touch of “chic” to the wedding. As already said, the color palette should be yellow and green, in their different shades, combined with white or pink grapefruit, with a touch of lavender. The tableau mariage, the wedding invitations or the reception are certainly perfect items for this idea.
