Wild and Wonderful Woodland Wedding Ideas

11th May 2017 |By | Be the first to comment

Woodland weddings can be wild and wonderful. Here’s how to set the scene with a variety of woodland-inspired decorations from everlasting moss and wicker to woodland scene backdrops and all sorts of woodland animals.

The woodland wedding is a natural theme that fits well with rustic wedding venues and can be very easy to plan. Look out for the birds, bunnies, bears and little owls.

Woodland wedding reception

Here’s an idea that is quite unusual. For a striking style serve reception drinks with decorative woodland birds perched neatly on top of each glass atop glass tables decorated with natural twigs in the great outdoors.

Woodland wedding favours

For a more subtle nod towards a woodland wedding, bring in tree-themed favour boxes such as the wooden trunket boxes featured below, exclusive to Confetti. They make a striking and unusual keepsake for each guest and can be filled with a small gift or message of your choice.

Woodland wedding decorations

One of the easiest ways to bring a woodland theme to your wedding is by having a wishing tree from which your guests can hang their well wishes to you. It’s an eye-catching alternative to the traditional guest book and can make an interesting centrepiece that provides a good ice breaker.

A large tree can stand alone on a side table at the reception or smaller trees could be used as centrepieces. At the end of the night, ask your best man to collect up all the wish cards for you to treasure and keep.

These artificial moss and wicker decorations can be used in all sorts of ways, from floral planter favours to outdoor picture frames. The bags can be filled with petals for flower girls to throw while the round pomanders are best placed on white stands to mark the entrance of the aisle. And because they’re not real you can keep them and use them again to decorate your home.

Perhaps the sweetest additions to any woodland wedding are these animal-inspired place cards with their delicate ears and antlers creating a lovely silhouette.

These birch log place card holders are holding uniquely intricate place cards laser cut into the shape of trees to create beautiful and intriguing shadow patterns in a low light atmosphere. If you look closely you can see the tiniest owls sitting together on a branch.

This woodland scene split panel canvas can be used as a back drop for walls and will look lovely hanging in your home as a keepsake after the wedding to always remind you of your special day.

Children will love these woodland rabbit ornaments that can be used to decorate interiors or exteriors and kept after the wedding or given away as thank you gifts to flower girls or page boys.

Another decoration on the day that could become a much treasured keepsake is this engraved wood slice. Have your names, initials, or messages engraved into the wood and display in your home for years after.

Woodland wedding venue

While there are plenty of venues surrounded by woods it can be truly amazing to immerse yourselves in nature and plan your wedding in woodland. Swinton Park Bivouac in Yorkshire allows you to do just this. A unique location with 40 mile views over the stunning countryside, complete with comfortable rustic style accommodation, a fire pit, amazing event tents, and a gorgeous café and bar.
