As we head in to the Autumn Season we start to see the stunning vibrant colours that nature gives at this time, couples are taking benefit of the warm colours and all that nature has to provide and deciding on a Woodland wedding theme.
A woodland wedding is exactly how is sounds, whether you bring the outside in or you are lucky enough to marry outdoors surrounded by the trees and the forest animals it is an concept that is breath-taking and magical.

Floral Woodland Inspiration
The woodland wedding theme is a wonderful chance to deviate away from the standard flowers that are discovered inside bridal bouquets and as floral decoration around your venue. Deviating away from the norm is a fantastic way to make your wedding stand out and be memorable to your guests.

There is tons of inspiration for your bridal bouquet but usually woodland wedding flower bouquets are heavily influenced by berries – these are great as they add a pop of colour to the bouquet and when contrasted against brown intertwining twigs, foliage, lavender and other flowers and plants it makes for a beautiful bridal bouquet.

For example, the jam jar is used by nearly every single bride and decorating them is a favoured DIY wedding activity.
You can get thin, flexible pieces of bark and wrap these about the jam jar leaving some of the jar exposed to let for the light to come via if you are going to location a candle in the centre, or you can do a similar issue with flexible twigs.

Artificial moss is a excellent versatile material to work with and you can develop lots of special and quirky table centrepieces with it. You can shape the moss into all sorts of different shapes such as love hearts and location them on the centre of a table, maybe on prime or arranged near some tiny tree stumps with the bride and groom’s name carved into them.

Pinecones naturally have lots of gaps in them, ideal for slipping in a name card. This makes pinecones excellent for woodland table spot name card holders so your guests know where they are sitting.

The Wedding Cake
For most, distinguishing the woodland theme inside your wedding cake can seem like an impossible task, but the key is all in the decoration and presentation. For example, putting the cake on an artificial cake stand is the very best location to start off.

Woodland Inspired Wedding Favours
Let your guests take house of bit of the woodland with some inventive wedding favours. Potpourri is a excellent woodland inspired wedding favour that lets your wedding guests take home the scent of the woodland. Or, why don’t you place together miniature bird’s nests and fill them with Cadbury’s mini eggs for an edible favour that leaves a sweet ending to the large day.
