Olive trees are a symbol of Apulia, and usually remain in the memories of tourists that choose to have their holidays here in Puglia, likewise food, people and breathtaking views.

So it’s easy to understand why a lot of couples want to use olive leaves wedding decorations for their big day. Olive leaves have a simple shape, an elegant color  (green and silver, a very charming combination) and are versatile and suitable of being used in a lot of ways.

If you are looking for a theme for your wedding and you want to help your guests appreciating and cherishing the trip in Apulia, this is the perfect one. Olive leaves are also trendy, because they are perfect for botanical, organic or country style weddings. They are the perfect choice, of course, also if you are looking for an authentic, romantic and Italian-styled wedding.

You can use olive trees to empower your bridal bouquet and all the flower arrangements, of course, but they are perfect also for unusual decorations, in order to create a fil rouge that keeps all your wedding details together.

Think about, for example, a wedding cake decorated with a delicate garland made with olive leaves, or try to figure out how glamorous will be your place holders or napkin rings if you adorn them with this Mother Nature’s gift. I bet your fantasy is already flying, isn’t it?

So let me help you a bit more: think about your wedding invitations and imagine a soft watercolor painting on them, with a crown of olive leaves. I think your guests will love them at the first sight!

And what about a precious bridal headpiece made with olive leaves dipped in gold or silver? You can use this method also to commission your trusted goldsmith some wonderful presents for your bridesmaids or witnesses! Don’t you see in your mind their surprised smile? I definitely do!

And more: the flower girl could use olive leaves instead of flower petals and create an amazing and unconventional leaves path for the bride. Or guests can throw olive leaves instead of rice, it will be a silver-green rain on your heads as a symbol of good fortune for your marriage (and leaves, by the way, are easier than rice to be removed from your updo!).

A last touch of class? Choose extra virgin olive oil bottles as special and edible favors to thank your relatives and friends (and decorate them with olive leaves, of course!). They will never forget your wedding!
