Woodsy Wedding Theme

It’s time to discuss one of the most important details of wedding planning – the theme! Today we are going to take a closer look at woodsy weddings. Not to be confused with rustic, woodsy wedding themes tend to be more nature-centered and involve more greenery. So how do you pull this look off? Check out the tips and inspiration below!

Finding the venue space is the first task in wedding planning and the critical factor in setting your theme. For a woodsy ceremony, you may want an outdoor area, surrounded by trees or some other kind of greenery. Your reception can then be held on an estate, in a tent, or inside! If you don’t like outdoor spaces or have a venue picked out, do not fret! It’s all about choosing the right decor and creating a natural-feeling environment for your guests.

When doing the woodsy wedding theme, your flowers should be simple. White and green bouquets are currently a hot trend right now that would fit this theme perfectly! When constructing your bouquet, choose flowers within the same color profile that have different textures. Accent them with greenery, berries, or even feathers. If you are looking for something a bit more unique, try carrying a wreath down the aisle. If you want other ideas on how to incorporate flowers into your big day, check out this blog. The most important tip to remember is this theme encourages the look of nature, so the more greenery, the better. Try using it at the reception as a runner!

Sometimes it is the smallest things that get the guests’ attentions. Consider having a cute escort card board using cork, wood, antique frames or windows, shutters, or other organic materials. This is especially effective for making your wedding feel intimate. Make sure the colors are simple and are shades you would see when in the forest. Bright colors may betray the simplicity of the woodsy theme. Talk to your stationery expert or calligrapher to come up with other ideas to convey your seating arrangement!

When your guests walk into the venue – whether ceremony or reception – they are looking for somewhere to sit! To take your seating the extra mile, thank about renting benches or chiavari chairs and add gorgeous greenery or weave linen to the back or side. This addition will make your wedding look even more like a fairytale. It’s important to keep in mind that the chairs are usually a natural wood. This color choice is because you want your wedding to look very natural. The wood complements your accents rather than stealing the show and gives your guest a down-to-earth feel.

One of the best parts of any wedding is the food! Don’t forget about your theme when choosing your cake design or meal options. Decorate the dessert table and bar with wood and greenery, and make sure the layout is simple. The woodsy theme is taking nature at its best and letting it speak for itself. A clean, simple cake with fresh flowers will be elegant and tasty!

Don’t forget about the wedding favors. They are going to be the last bit of hard work your guests will see on your big day. Try giving them plant seeds, a nature-scented candle, or even a s’mores kit! The theme will be complemented by the gifts that reflect nature.
