I’m planning a country wedding and am (like most) trying to save some serious dough. I love the look of wheat bouquets for my bridesmaids as well as placing wheat in mason jars for centerpieces. A friend of a friend has kindly said I can stop by and pick some wheat from his farm for free. However I know nothing about wheat and have some questions that might seem stupid! I’ll apologize in advance. When should I pick the wheat? I’m sure there is a specific season. Right?! Also, should I be using dried wheat or fresh wheat for my bouquets and centerpieces? Does it matter?
Thanks for your help!!

You can use dried or fresh wheat, it just depends on the look you want, and the timing of your wedding. I think dried would be better because you can prepare everything in advance that way. The best time to pick it will be in late summer or early fall, you want the heads to be large and ripe. I would ask your friend to let you know about a week before he starts harvesting and go and pick it then.
