We love the rustic, woodland wedding trend. Earthy tones, organic lines, woodsy floral arrangements and sweet forest critter motifs give this theme an enchanted, romantic feeling. If a dreamy forest wedding sounds wonderful to you—what’s more romantic than a walk in the woods with someone you love—dig in and be inspired by these whimsical woodland wedding ideas.
Shape your color palette based on the naturally occurring colors at your woodsy venue. We recommend drawing from these tones:
Sky: Navy, Stone Gray, Slate Gray, Sky Blue
Use what you love about the forest to inspire you. Do you love spotting owls, deer or foxes? Are you inspired by stark white birch bark? Do you think initials carved in an aging tree are epically romantic? Integrate these rustic details into your wedding décor. A few of our favorite ideas include:
Cute Critter Cake Toppers: Use figurines of deer, foxes, owls or any favorite woodland creature to top your cake as a sweet, whimsical detail. Integrate similar motifs into your wedding invitations, napkins, thank you notes and centerpieces.
Greenery: Use berry, floral, twine or greenery garlands to decorate your tables and alter. The garland theme can also be included in the design of your invitations and place cards. Integrating details such as leaves, and pine cones is also a great way to create an earthy ambiance.
Woodland Plants: Consider using common woodland plants such as mushrooms, moss and ferns for your centerpieces, place settings and as details on your wedding invitation suite, favor bags and place cards.
