Please some help incorporating the color wheat into my fall wedding?

Thanks for any help! I am getting married this fall, and one color I have is eggplant (bridesmaid dresses). This morning, I started playing with wheat being the other color, but I am having trouble coming up with creative and simple ideas on how to work that into the decor. Our budget is limited. I am especially looking for cute way to create bunches of wheat for table centerpieces. I’ve found a couple, but they seem limited. Additionally, can wheat be worked into flowers fairly easily? Lastly, I was also trying to look for ideas on how to display wheat tactfully at the church.

Thanks again!

    Can you put sashes with the bridesmaids dresses? Because I think that a wheat colored sash would be really pretty with eggplant colored dresses.

    This can be so cool. I think wheat would look just fine in your flower arrangements. Also, if you put bunches of wheat on the tables, you might want to have a pretty little card explaining some symbolism behind it. For example, the wheat may represent abundance, growth, or coming of age.

    As far as displaying it at the church, you could have wheat tied up in pew bows, or have a few stalks tucked into the programs. Also, you could use small stalks for the corsages and bouteneires for family and ushers.

    You shouldn't have much trouble getting things in tan or wheat-colored fabric. That would be a nice color for the tuxes. My fall wedding was tan (tuxes) and dark green (dresses). Everyone said it was a very pretty wedding---and it was photogenic.

    I had the florist use fall leaves in my bouquet of bronze roses. Since potted mums were available and quite inexpensive---and colorful---I purchased lots of those and wheat and more fall leaves were incorporated into those potted plants.

    Florists can dye dried materials into any color you like. Talk with a professional for ideas.

    on the dresses you could put a sash that is the eggplant color.

    on the center pieces you could an eggplant inside a wreath of wheat! instead of the eggplant you could do like a flower or something like a favor.

    p.s.

    congrats on getting married, good luck to the both of you!

    Wheat colored sashes would look lovely on the dresses (bridesmaids and yours if desired).

    Wheat can be worked into flowers very easily, similar to babys breath and other filler. It can also be lovely in a boutonniere. http://www.instyleweddings.com/weddings/gallery/0,...

    Wheat designs could look lovely on the program, personalized napkins, etc.

    Try a craft store with dry flowers and dry plants

    to put in the arrangements you can make stuff yourself.

    Also candles are more affordable then flowers as center pieces, even if it is during the day.

    You could press pieces of wheat into the candles.

    Try combining terracotta/rust with the wheat. It will provide a smoother transition between the wheat and the wine(eggplant, I know, but "wheat and wine" sounds cooler!).

    Pink is one of those colours that have a lot of different shades to it so what shade of pink are you thinking about? Depending on your answer, it may not be the easiest match but take something that is the colour of the orange of your centerpieces (or a centerpiece itself) and try to match different shades of pinks in terms of flowers to put inside it. I would expect that you will probably find something that will compliment but it might take a little bit of a hunt.
