Strawberry Inspired Weddings

When picking a location for your destination wedding, you may just find yourself exposed to the freshest of ingredients for both your menu and decor that you can’t always get back home.  Strawberries may be easier to come by than some of those ingredients, but if you’re getting married in California, then these pretties are the perfect inspiration for everything from cocktails and desserts to invitations and bridesmaid dresses.  California grows oodles of sweet strawberries, so let the fields be your inspiration.  But did you know that they originated in France?  Perhaps a perfectly planned french menu infused with these favorites will ignite the senses!  And if all your loved ones can’t travel to Europe for the main event, consider a strawberry themed bridal shower to share a bit of the big day with them.
