2022 Forest & Woodland Decor Ideas
There’s nothing more magical than a woodland fairy wedding. It features a romantic, mysterious, and enchanting atmosphere, perfect for exchanging your I do’s and dancing the night away.
But, exactly how do you create an enchanting woodland wedding? Here are some of our favorite forest and woodland wedding décor ideas for 2022.
Tree Decorated With Fabric, Lanterns, and a Hoop Wreath: Junebug Weddings
Decorate Outdoor Trees
If you want to host your forest wedding ceremony outside, there’s no better focal point than a beautiful old tree. For a little extra bridal flair, decorate the tree that is acting as your altar with ribbon, floral arrangements, or fabric.
Don’t be afraid to decorate the other trees in the area! The more trees that are strung with decorations, the more magical your wedding will feel.
Bride Standing in Front of a Decorated Wooden Arch: Whimsical Wonderland Weddings
Incorporate Branches, Stumps, and Wooden Slabs
Decorating with branches, stumps, and wooden slabs looks whimsical at an outdoor celebration, but using these details can ensure your indoor celebration has that woodland feel as well.
Table Centerpiece Featuring Mossy Details: West Coast Weddings
Get Creative With Moss
Moss is also a great addition to any woodland forest wedding. Especially because there are so many creative ways to use this material!
Geometric Candle Holders Filled With Fairy Lights: Wedding Chicks
Decorate With Twinkling Fairy Lights
Fairy lights belong among your forest and woodland décor. Their tiny twinkling lights create a romantic, enchanting ambiance as the sun goes down, whether your reception is taking place indoors or out.
Fairy lights can be placed in the branches of trees, clumped in decorative glass objects on tabletops, or hung like a curtain behind focal points, like the cake table or the sweetheart table.
Candles Arranged on Tree Stumps: A Princess Inspired
Go Overboard With Candles
Candles are a staple at weddings. If you want to take them to the next level at a woodland wedding, you have to go overboard and use tons of candles.
Line stairs or walkways with dozens of candles, create focal points out of candles in all different shapes and sizes, and turn down the lights so guests dine only by candlelight. If you’re worried about fire regulations, use flameless candles instead.
Floral Arrangement Inside a Glass Cloche: Fab Mood
Use Apothecary Jars and Cloches
Traditional glass pillar candle holders and votives can be decorated with more than just candles, but so can many other glass decorations, many of which are stunning when incorporated into your enchanted forest centerpieces.
Apothecary jars can hold everything from moss to ferns to fairy lights. Cloches are an especially good choice at a woodland fairy wedding. They can display flower arrangements, but they can also cover desserts to keep bugs at bay.
White and Green Bridal Bouquet With Leafy Branches: Style Me Pretty
Create More Natural Looking Floral Arrangements
Floral arrangements are a beautiful addition to any wedding, regardless of your theme. The key is knowing how to arrange them to fit in with your woodland fairy wedding decorations.
Fussy, perfectly placed bouquets will look out of place. Instead, create more natural-looking flower arrangements. Cascading flowers, unexpected details, like bare twigs, and overflowing blooms look more like they were plucked from nature.
Head Table Featuring Two Different Chairs: Wedding Chicks
Your flower arrangements shouldn’t look too perfect, and the rest of the details at your forest wedding shouldn’t look too perfect either.
Don’t be afraid to mix and match details. Chairs don’t have to match, different kinds of candle holders can be used, and different kinds of flowers can be used in different ways throughout your ceremony and your reception.
Rustic Centerpiece Featuring Feathers and Antlers: Weddingomania
Incorporate Nature in Unique Ways
Flowers and wooden details are a staple at forest weddings, but there are many other ways to incorporate nature.
A few natural details that can be added to your décor include:
- Animal skulls
Woodland Wedding Cake Featuring Real Floral Details: Stylish Wedd
Incorporate Nature in Your Wedding Cake
The best way to create an enchanted forest cake is to incorporate nature in its design. That means using things like florals, twigs, wood slab cake stands, and berries.
These types of details can be made out of edible materials, but you can also use actual items from nature. They can be removed when it’s time to cut and eat the cake.
All of these woodland wedding ideas can be combined in countless ways to create a magical atmosphere at your wedding. Personalize them for your big day and you are sure to enchant your guests.
