Planning a Woodland Theme Wedding

Woodland Theme Wedding Ideas
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 the whimsical woodland wedding ideas featured in this post!

Woodland Decor
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 in to your woodland 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 ambience.

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.


Natural Wood – Use tree bark, logs, stumps and cross sections of wood to create beautiful centerpieces, appetizer displays and place card holders.
