Flowers will always reign supreme when it comes to dressing up your ceremony and reception, but there's another colorful accent making its way into the wedding decor scene. Fresh fruit is an up-and-coming trend that's perfect for anyone looking to brighten up their big day. Some of our favorite wedding fruit decoration ideas include the obvious, such as centerpieces and cakes, but we've also found a few out-of-the-box options that might surprise you. 

Take a peek at these creative and trendy wedding fruit decoration ideas.  

pink and orange yellow wedding bouquet with kumquats


Certain types of fruit make an unexpected yet cheery addition to your wedding bouquet. This bright arrangement has kumquat branches that accentuate the pink and orange blooms. Other options for including fruit in your wedding bouquet include lemons, limes, apples, and even grapes (your wedding florist may need to cut larger fruits into halves).

Patterned envelope liners are one of the most artistic fruit wedding ideas. A bold citrus motif makes this black and white stationery suite "pop" in the best way! We love this idea for a summer wedding at the beach or an otherwise tropical locale.

Table Runner

For a farm-to-table effect, incorporate fruits into your wedding table runners. This idea is especially lovely with long banquet tables and low centerpieces, which instantly create a welcoming, laid-back look. Fresh peaches are perfect fruit decorations for weddings if you want to embrace a bit of Southern charm.

Escort Cards

Pair vintage soda bottles with fresh berries for escort cards that epitomize retro-chic style. We're loving these cute green glass bottles with white hand-lettering (and your guests can take them home after the wedding as keepsakes!).

No need to overcomplicate your wedding centerpieces! Fresh fruit is a simple but beautiful way to dress up your tables, and we especially love this idea if you're hosting an outdoor wedding. Consider using fruits that are local to your venue, like apples at an orchard, grapes at a vineyard, citrus fruits in SoCal or Florida, etc.

Reception menu cards are an easy way to incorporate the wedding fruit decoration trend if you're looking for an approach that's not as literal. This card features colorful watercolor details and an abstract pineapple motif.

Getting married at a venue that grows its own produce? Surprise your guests with individual servings of berries or diced fruit at each place setting. It's a nice treat as everyone takes their seats, but it also makes for a great detail shot and supports local sustainability.

Place Cards

Individual fruits make excellent holders for your wedding place cards. Leave the fruits as-is if they already match your color palette, or personalize them with a quick paint job in a coordinating hue.

Table Numbers

Pineapple crowns are one of the more creative wedding fruit decorations that we've seen, and we have to admit that we're a little obsessed! Display your table numbers with this unexpected accent if you're getting married at the beach or having an island-inspired wedding.

Fruit-infused beverages are a refreshing and tasty choice for your signature cocktail. Dress up your wedding bar or cocktail station by using clusters of whichever fruits are included in the drinks.

Wedding Cake

Your guests will be thrilled to dig into a fruit-inspired confection like this. Hand-painted cakes are everywhere right now, and we love this citrusy take on the trend. Not a fondant fan? Skip the hand-painted details and decorate your cake with actual fruit instead, like fresh berries, figs, or even pomegranate seeds.
