Wedding Themes: Woodland Wedding

By: Kristina Kittelson, Editor, AllFreeDIYWeddings

Paper Pine Cone CraftsIf you have no idea what you want your wedding theme to be, but you know it has to be as unique and unexpected as you are, try a woodland wedding. With elements of outdoor, rustic, fairytale, and bohemian weddings, it's truly a wedding for the renaissance woman. No other wedding themes give quite the same space for nature-inspired decor and apparel while still appealing to the traditional traits of a wedding. Especially if you're having your wedding in the spring or summer when greenery flourishes and flowers blossom, a woodland wedding is an enviable theme.


The best part about a woodland wedding is its overall incredible simplicity. Outdoor wedding venues are often overwhelmingly cheaper than renting out ballrooms, and they leave space for gorgeous, romantic outdoor lighting and other DIY wedding projects that would just look out-of-place in a ballroom. Many people are attracted to the woodland wedding because of its whimsical, fairytale feel, and they have a point. Your wedding should be a fairytale, and your ceremony and reception should reflect that. Thankfully, we've taken all the thinking out of finding just the right DIY wedding projects. It's only up to you to decide which are worthy of your enchanting story.

Woodland Wedding Lighting Ideas

Woodland Nymph DIY Candle Holders

The lighting of a reception can change the entire mood. It's sometimes really difficult to find adequate lighting for an outdoor wedding, but you're not about to let that stop you. Woodland weddings actually look mysterious, romantic, and even slightly supernatural with dim candle lighting, where other wedding themes can look dull and cheap with the same lighting apparatus. We've got a ton of lantern and candle ideas for your woodland wedding, so you have more options than you think you do, and they're actually really easy to make. Even the groom can help out with these.

  2. Cascading Mason Jar Lantern
  3. Jaw-Dropping Blue Twig Chandelier
  4. Mason Jar Candle Chandeliers
  5. Romantic Woodland Faux Birch Lanterns
  6. Summer Cottage Mason Jar Lantern
