I can think of all kinds of stodgy, stuffy, formal things to write about wheat. I can think of a million very dull ways to say that wheat symbolizes so much of what weddings are about–hope for the future, a life of abundance, the gifts of hard work. I can think of very formal ways to describe the joys of wheat.
Really, though? It just looks amazing!
That beautiful golden color looks great with almost anything. Depending on how you cut and display it, it can look wild and untamed or manicured and modern. It’s sunny and lovely and everything people think of when they think “fall.” From using it in place of flowers, to a couple of terrific wreaths to that gold necklace (that I’m already dreaming about saving my pennies for), it’s versatile and unusual. Paired with white, it looks even more golden. It has that wonderful quality of baby’s breath where it looks even better in huge bunches. I’m kind of in love with this whole wedding.
