There’s just something so beautiful and calming about nature, which is why many couples chose to incorporate this material into their big day. Its texture and neutral color make it the perfect detail for your nuptials. Here are a few ways I love to see wood included in weddings:
Wood Wedding invitations
Wish you could etch your wedding invitations into the bark of a tree? Well, with this Birch Tree Carvings – Invitation, you can come pretty close. The background resembles the bark from a real birch tree and even has your initials etched in at the top and surrounded by a hand-drawn heart.
Combine wood, flowers and candles for a centerpiece that looks like you gathered all of the materials from outside. Stack logs of different heights in the middle of the table and top them with mason jars filled with wildflowers. Surround the wooden logs with more greenery and plenty of tea light candles for an intimate glow.
Whether you’re serving cupcakes, cake, cookies or pies, opt for a stand carved out of wood. It blends in with the rest of your rustic decor, helping your sweet treats take center stage. As for your cake, you can ask your baker to use white fondant with brown textured lines to make it look like the bark from a white birch tree.
Instead of simply laying the escort cards on a table, use the branches of a birch tree to hold the stationery. Cut slits into the top of the bark so the cards can slide right in for a woodsy and picturesque display.
Bride’s and groom’s chairs
Decorate the backs of your chairs with a wood sign in the shape of a heart. Carve in the words “bride” or “groom” or just etch in your wedding date and initials. Tie it to the top of your chair with some burlap or neutral-colored ribbon.
Place wooden crates at your reception for guests to put their wedding gifts. Label them with your name and wedding date.
