I am huge into herbs, so I gasped out loud when I saw that Jeff and Brandon tucked sprigs of rosemary into the menus at their wedding. My favorite! If you're not familiar, think of the warm comfort foods of winter — turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, and so on. You've probably eaten them flavored with rosemary!
This herb's smell is savory, refreshing, and oh so appetizing. That makes it the perfect complement to a menu at a winter wedding! The aroma is subtle enough that it's not going to knock anyone off their feet, but with a sprig at each plate, rosemary will definitely lend a delightful aroma to your reception area.
Now if you've priced fresh herbs at a grocery store, you may be rolling your eyes at me. A sprig at each plate, really? BUT. Here's my secret. Get thee to a nursery right now. I bought a decent-sized rosemary plant just last week for around $30, and it's ready to harvest gently right away. Bonus if your wedding isn't for another year: you've got time to plant the bush this spring and reap a larger harvest by the fall!
And if you live somewhere more forgiving than the Midwest, psh. Plant a rosemary bush right now and have deliciously fresh sprigs for years on any menu ever JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN.
