Monarch Charm


Let wildlife be the inspiration for your woodland wedding. Hint at the theme by hanging these buttefly decorations from tree branches leading up to the site of your wedding ceremony. To continue this motif, you could release monarch butterflies instead of doves.

Offbeat Boho Style

Not Your Average Flower Crown


Sans veil or not, accessorize with a textured nonfloral crown. There are plenty of woodsy elements you can use to set yours apart from the traditional flower crown. From branches to feathers and berries, the possibilities are endless.




Woodland Wedding Centerpiece



Straight Out of a Fairytale


Plenty of woodland wedding ideas can be drawn from classic literature. Using Shakespearean details inspired by A Midsummer Night’s Dream or ideas straight out of your favorite fairytale, bring some story inspiration to the table. Add in some moss and wildflowers for a vintage-meets-woodland centerpiece.

Seasonal Inspiration


Rely on the season for some natural inspiration. For a spring wedding centerpiece, try a row of birds’ nests filled with faux robins’ eggs. This shade of blue makes a beautiful addition to a color palette for the season, too.

Illuminate Your Centerpieces


For a more modern look, add a neat terrarium centerpiece filled with greenery. The little lights in this example add a dreamy glow to this rustic tablescape.




Woodland Wedding Swing



Garden Swing


Hanging flower decorations are simply gorgeous but if you want to take it a step further, a floral-covered swing is the way to go. This idea is so creative for an outdoor reception and makes a stylish addition to your wedding photos.




Woodland Wedding Cake



Colorful Details


Not all woodland weddings incorporate deep jewel tones and rustic boho details. If you want to use brighter colors and nontraditional elements in this theme, that’s definitely okay too. These rich red flowers mixed with fern and colorful bunting flags bring modern whimsy to this woodland wedding cake, but the cute animals are the real winners here.




Woodland Wedding Favors



A Moss Masterpiece


Moss is an ideal decoration for a forest wedding especially during the spring and summer. Add it into the little details like these personalized terrarium wedding favors so guests can bring a little bit of a woodland kingdom back home.




Woodland Wedding Cake



Dreamy Earth Tones


While we enjoy the simplicity of rustic details, this elaborate dessert is an exception. From the floral design to the rustic cake stand, everything about this quirky wedding cake is so fitting for a woodland wedding.




Woodland Ceremony Decor


A Dreamy Glow


An illuminated ceremony altar adds a romantic glow to an outdoor ceremony during any season. Created with only tree stumps and candles, this setting looks simply gorgeous for a woodland wedding.
