Types of Berries for Your DIY Wedding
Now that you know a little more about berries, it is time to decide which type of berry is right for your DIY Wedding.
If you are going for a more rustic or natural look, Hypericum berries are the way to go. They come in a variety of colors including green, pink, peach, white or cream, burgundy, and red. You can mix and match your favorite colors or stick with a more monochromatic approach to create your perfect DIY wedding look.
Silver Brunia berries are perfect for adding a touch of shimmer and elegance to your DIY Wedding. They catch the light beautifully and add an extra special touch to any bouquet or arrangement. They can feel dry to the touch, but are still considered a fresh flower.
Privet Berries are a great way to add a unique twist to your DIY Wedding. These berries have a more matte finish when they are earlier in the season and are green in color. In the winter months, Privet Berries are a wonderful dark purple, almost black, color. They are a great addition to any DIY wedding because they are not as common as other types of berries.
Pink Hanging Pepperberry is great for DIY brides who want to add a pop of color to their wedding. These berries are a fun and festive way to brighten up any DIY wedding. The long hanging leaves add a beautiful cascading effect to your bouquets.
Now that you know all about the different types of berries available, you can learn how to choose which berry to use for your DIY wedding flowers.
How to Choose Berries for Your DIY Wedding
When selecting berries for your DIY Wedding, be sure to consider the other flowers and colors you will be using. You want all of your elements to coordinate well together. The great thing about berries is that they can be easily incorporated into any design! When deciding on berries for your DIY wedding, keep the following factors in mind:
- The first is the color palette of your wedding. You want the berries to coordinate with the other flowers and colors used in your wedding.
- The second is the time of year you are getting married. If you are getting married in the spring, you will want to use brighter berries like Hypericum. If you are getting married in the fall or winter, Silver Brunia berries or darker Burgundy Hypericum Berries would be a great choice! Winter brides with a moodier palette really love Privet Berries for that rich deep color and seasonal feel!
- The third is to consider what other flower types and colors you will be using. If your wedding is more on the rustic side, you might want to use berries as filler in your bouquets and centerpieces. If your wedding is more formal, you can use berries as accents in boutonnieres or as accents on your cake! If you want a very soft and fluffy wedding flower theme, berries may not be the right fit as they will definitely add texture to your floral arrangements.
Now that you know all about berries for your DIY wedding, it is time to get creative and have fun with them! Be sure to consider the other elements of your wedding when choosing which type of berry to use. Have fun adding texture and dimension to your DIY wedding flowers with berries!

DIY Wedding Flower Tips: How to Care for Your Berries
When ordering Berries and flowers from Flower Moxie, the flowers will arrive fresh and ready to use after being processed and hydrated. The berries, flowers, and greenery will be shipped in flower boxes and wrapped with paper to protect the flowers during transit. Upon arrival, it is important to open the box and remove the berries, greenery, and flowers from the packaging. Everything will then need to be re-cut and placed in fresh and clean water. It is important to remove any leaves that will be below the water line as these leaves can rot and contaminate the water. Once you have chosen the perfect berries for your DIY wedding, it is important to know how to care for them. Berries can last up to two weeks when cared for properly. Here are some DIY Wedding tips on how to keep them looking their best for your wedding:
- When you first receive your berries, give them a fresh cut and put them into clean water with a floral preservative.
- Check the water level daily and top it off as needed.
- Keep your berries in a cool location out of direct sunlight.
- If you are using Hypericum berries, be sure to remove the leaves below the water line as they will make the water dirty.
- If you are using Silver Brunia berries, be sure to separate them out a bit after they have been in water so that they look their best!
- Privet berries should be kept in an appropriately sized container to keep them from drooping too much causing stems to bend.
- If you need to transport your berries, be sure to do so carefully. Berries are extremely hardy, but you should still handle them with care.
With proper care and handling, your DIY Wedding berries will last a long time and look beautiful in all of your designs!
