Are People Seriously Replacing Their Wedding Bouquets With Vegetables?

Are People Seriously Replacing Their Wedding Bouquets With Vegetables?

I take it all back. Your engagement photos? You can keep those. Ball jars? Fine, I’ll drink whatever you’re serving out of ’em. You can even keep choreographing stupid dances set to pre-mixed mash-ups if you want. Just please, please, please don’t make this another stupid wedding trend that everyone does.

According to The Telegraph, brides are starting to replace their traditional floral bouquets with vegetables. We’re talkin’ kale, broccoli, and cabbage.

Florists say fruit and vegetables are becoming increasingly popular in nuptial flower arrangements, with carrots, leeks and citrus fruits all being picked over the more traditional choices of roses and peonies.

One of the brides even said, “I have always grown up around vegetables and it was nice to include them in the day.” Well yeah, I grew up watching Surf Ninjas and playing street hockey but you don’t see me going down the aisle screaming “Knuckle puck!” before Moto Surfing away from the reception. I mean, come on.

I consider myself to be pretty up with the trends these days (especially because I’ve been forced to go to a million fucking weddings this year), but this is the first I’ve heard of people replacing their flowers with heads of lettuce. Just look at this tweet from a week ago from Brides Magazine:

If my future wife showed that to me while we were planning, I’d fire our planner simply for suggesting this is a viable idea before asking our caterer to just add another salad to the bill in order for her to carry it down the aisle. Just look how stupid this looks.

Yes, that’s cauliflower in the background. The same type of cauliflower that you dip in ranch when you don’t feel like going to the store. Now, I’m all for “eating clean” and attending packaged “farm-to-fork” dinners, but keep your veggies out of my ceremony and at the reception where they belong.
