Herbal Weddings: Herbal Traditions for the Modern Bride, Complete with Recipes and Instructions for Bouquets and Decorations

Softcover, 144 pages. Full-color photographs. ©2011 Endeavor EnterprizesHerbal Weddings Book

In Herbal Weddings, author and photographer Laurel Graf has created a beautiful book filled with fascinating information on the use of herbs in a wedding celebration. The 144 page book is illustrated throughout with full-color photographs and covers topics such as the history of herbs for a wedding, the language of flowers, herbal bouquets and decorations, and how- to information for many herbal projects including bouquets, favors, and gifts. The use of herbs for a wedding has become so popular, many florists are now getting regular requests from their clients to include herbs in the bridal bouquet and other decorations.

Herbs such as lavender and rosemary are widely available through a florist, but the book also contains information on growing some of the lesser known wedding herbs such as Meadowsweet (Queen Elizabeth I favored this flowering herb with the scent of vanilla).

Herbal Weddings features herbal crafts, floral arrangements, and delicious recipes featuring herbs. Just a sampling of what you will find inside includes:

* Herbal lore and legends.

* The language of herbs and flowers.

* Decorations for the ceremony and reception.

* Gifts and favors including tussie-mussies, floral water, lavender wands, pomanders, scented paper, and rose beads.

* Recipes for the wedding feast including Salmon and Dill Profiteroles, Renaissance Herb Tart, Pansy Ravioli, Herb- Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Calvados Sauce and Autumn Vegetables, Crusty Tomato-Herb Baguette, Rosemary-Orange Tea Biscuits, Lemon-Lavender Sugar Cookies, and Chocolate-Mint Cake.

For anyone looking for something unique in their wedding celebration, this book is a real treasure.
