How Berry Delightful: Romantic Cranberry Wedding Decor

Our fine state’s official fruit—the cranberry—takes center stage with this ultra-romantic wedding décor that’s perfect for a fall affair.
From: Fall/Winter 2015 edition

(above) Boasting over 330 acres of working cranberry marshes, Glacial Lake Cranberries, located in Wisconsin Rapids, makes an ideal backdrop for this sweet dinner setting for two—especially when coupled with the glorious fall foliage. The Badger State produces more than 60 percent of the country’s cranberries, after all, so celebrate the little red berry with passion.

(above) Maroon, crimson, burgundy and beyond: Call upon cranberries’ shades of scarlet for a chic color scheme. To add a charming twist to a traditional bouquet, balance the blooms with small bursts of the berries themselves.

(above) Among all the hustle and bustle of your big day, be sure to sneak away for a private moment with your new Mr. (and steal a kiss or two while you’re at it). Invite him to partake in the theme with cranberry-colored accents, such as a bow tie or boutonniere.
