When I think of a summer wedding, the first thing that comes to mind is an outdoor wedding. Among all of the options, a relaxed summer woodland wedding is sure to be a hit! Bohemian weddings, rustic weddings, and even forest weddings are all possibilities for woodland weddings.
Woodland Wedding Ideas
Woodland weddings provide a tranquil setting and bring guests closer to nature. It’s more of a relaxed tour than a formal event. The natural surroundings, such as trees with green foliage and wildflowers, will make for a beautiful wedding backdrop. It allows you to save a significant amount of money without reducing the quality of your decoration.
Summer is the most popular season for any type of outdoor wedding, and now I’d like to show you some beautiful summer woodland wedding ideas.
Woodland Wedding Decorations
The decorations may differ from those seen at typical weddings. More woodland components can be incorporated into the overall scene. Aren’t tree trunks for reception seats, green moss for centerpieces, and wild berries for desserts all cool?
Prepare several blankets for summer woodland weddings in case the weather changes. Furthermore, if you want to create a whimsical look, string lights can be used to create a surprisingly romantic effect. We’ve put up a list of relaxed summer forest wedding ideas to help you plan a one-of-a-kind celebration.
You can create a woodland wedding tablescape with an exposed table or at least a table runner; you could also use a moss tablecloth. Decorate the table with a wild greenery table runner with berries, foliage, and wildflowers, as well as candles and candle lanterns.
Consider bark or twiggy placemats, as well as evergreens and berries. Metal or stone placemats, if they fit your wedding style, are also options. Mushrooms and berries will give the tablescape a whimsical touch, making it wilder and more free-spirited. Add any embellishments you like that go with the rustic or wooded theme.
Wood slices are a terrific addition to any woodland, bohemian, rustic, or organic wedding, and they’re also quite inexpensive. They can be used in a variety of ways.
We understand if you aren’t the kind to sacrifice flowers. Decorate your altar with lovely white flowers like hydrangeas and roses. “Show-stopper,” perhaps?
Allow nature to be your wedding’s inspiration. Hang these butterfly decorations from tree branches leading up to your wedding ceremony site to give guests a hint about the theme. Instead of doves, monarch butterflies might be released to continue the theme.
A bold and chic centerpiece that fits the aesthetic of your tabletop will complete the look. It might be a tall vase full of lush and textural greenery, a lush and bold floral centerpiece with berries, a piece of wood slices, moss, greenery, mushrooms, and berries, or a piece of wood slices, moss, greenery, mushrooms, and berries.
Bring in any rustic or woodland elements to your centerpiece, or go bold with whimsy and bright colors and candles. Take a look at the fashionable samples below to get some ideas.
Add a beautiful terrarium centerpiece with greenery for a more modern effect. In this case, the small lights give this rustic tabletop a beautiful radiance.
Hanging flower arrangements are lovely, but a floral-covered swing is the way to go if you want to take it a step further. This is a fantastic outdoor reception concept that would look great in your wedding photos.
Keep it colorful details
Deep jewel tones and rustic boho touches aren’t used in every woodland wedding. It’s perfectly acceptable to employ brighter colors and unusual components in this theme. This woodland wedding cake has a modern whimsy thanks to the rich red roses blended with fern and bright bunting flags, but the charming creatures are the real winners.
Woodland Wedding Attire
Many woodland brides opt for colorful wedding gowns to stand out against the backdrop of the forest, and there are plenty of bright alternatives to select from. To make your bridal look unique, choose from blue, blush, crimson, emerald, aqua, gold, mustard, and black wedding gowns.
There are a variety of styles available, ranging from ball gowns to sheath dresses, with a variety of embellishments such as embroidery, sequins, sheer inserts, and interesting necklines.
If it’s fall, a burgundy or emerald dress is appropriate; if it’s a pale winter forest, a mustard, crimson, or gold dress is appropriate; and so on.
Woodland Wedding Cakes
Choose a more modern and simple woodland wedding cake if you want a more informal wedding decor and want to lend a modern flavor to your woodland festivity. It can be half-naked or completely naked, with berries, fruit, foliage, and blooms – fresh or dried, not sugared – on top. Add a great drop, antlers, or moss and leaves, and you’ve got yourself a wonderful modern woodland wedding cake!
If you prefer buttercream, go with a simple textured white and some neutral greenery for your decorations. Serve your cakery masterpiece on a wood slice or a wooden board decorated with your choice of moss, grass, flora, and petals.
Choose a whimsical woodland wedding cake with distinctive decor if you enjoy unconventional decor and accents. Choose a buttercream that looks like wood or bark, perhaps with a heart and your monograms cutout. Fresh or sugar blooms and greenery, sugar mushrooms, moss, grass, and even wildflowers can be used to decorate the cake.
Make or buy some whimsy toppers with animals from the woods, like deer, rabbits, foxes, or other creatures. You can also mix and match tiers, such as neutral or metallic ones with bark-like ones, to make your wedding cake even more whimsical. Voila! Serve the cake on wood slices or a chic stand with a moss and greenery pillow.
