The idea of a “lemon wedding” is perfect for those who love a rustic yet elegant and refined event setting. It's a wedding theme that can be used throughout the year, with different color palettes, from the hottest and brightest during the summer, to the softest and coldest for the winter.
Let yourself be inspired by all the possible combinations of details and accessories that come from this wedding idea.
Shining, colorful and fragrant! If you get married in summer, this theme is really perfect for a Mediterranean country-chic wedding. The parfum of citrus will bring a breath of freshness to the reception. The ideal location for a lemon wedding in Italy is certainly the Amalfi Coast, with its countless terraces overlooking the sea.
The yellow of lemons and cedars, the purple of Bougainville and the orange of mandarin, are colors that immediately recall to our mind the sun and open spaces. These colors go well with grapefruit pink, for a more delicate color palette, and lime green, to emphasize the concept of freshness.
Lemons offer endless creative possibilities, ranging from rustic to elegant. To embellish the location of the ceremony it is possible to place wicker baskets full of lemons, with their green leaves and some seasonal flowers. You can then repeat the decorative pattern on the reception table and on the dessert buffet.
Citrus fruits can be used whole or cut into slices, either alone or in combination with flowers, such as roses and lisianthus, or green leaves, such as eucalyptus and olive branches.
