Woodland Wedding Invitations

Shades of Autumn Wedding InvitationA popular rustic wedding trend for 2019 is the natural Woodland Wedding 

These charming enchanted forest wedding themes are often held in wooded parks, woodsy backyards or manicured arboretums. While in most cases, prior approval will be required they all can lead to a beautiful backdrop for your nuptials. 

Let the seasonal differences in the woods help decide the color scheme for your wedding.  Obviously the rich greens and browns of summer trees and vibrant red, oranges and yellows of fall foliage will be hard to ignore, so go with it and use those colors to your advantage! 
Here are some unique Woodland Wedding Invitations for all seasons to help set the tone for your marriage ceremony and reception.

Depending on your geographic location, a winter woodland wedding can be a bit tricky and chilly! While it is super romantic to imagine trees glistening and sparkling in fresh fallen snow, your guests may be feeling the cold after a short time. So while a short ceremony may be held outside, the rest of the reception should be held in an adjacent cozy cabin or barn. The Rustic Red Poinsettia Winter Wedding Stationery Collection is perfect for a festive December event. Choose from invitations, save the dates and thank you notes featuring a floral photograph of natural wood slices and red poinsettias.

The spring is a beautiful season of new birth and a very popular season for tying the knot. If you are lucky enough to live in a dryer climate during March, April or May, then a forest wedding might be a great option for you.  The quaint Rustic Bird Nest and Pussy Willows Wedding Invitation Set beautifully captures the essence of springtime featuring a wooden bird's nest filled with blue speckled eggs and a vintage milk bottle filled with pussy willow twigs.

The Sunflower is the proud ambassador of the June, July and August summer months and is a cheerful complement to a subdued woodland wedding.  Bright yellow sunflowers can make a striking appearance against the dark greens and mosses of the deep woods. The charming Rustic Sunflower Woodland Wedding Invitation Collection features a yellow sunflower blossom, natural wooden wood slices with the word LOVE burned on them with brown pine cones and a white bridal veil.

The September, October and November Fall months is when mother nature really loves to show off all of her splendor in the woods. Soak in all of those rich warm colors and thread them through your wedding decor.  Because autumn weather can often be unpredictable, its always a good idea to have an onsite indoor option for your venue.

Types of Rustic Weddings

Types of Rustic Weddings

So you have decided to throw a casual yet classy rustic wedding but you aren't sure what kind? Here are some ideas to get your creative juices flowing.

Most obviously, and most popular, is the rustic chic Barn Wedding Theme. With this theme, the marriage ceremony may take place in a grassy yard outside the barn, if weather permits; or inside if need be. Barns are typically very large and can host many people so they are ideal for big marriage receptions. This style lends itself toward informal homestyle meals versus fancy sit down dinners and can therefore be more cost effective for the couple on a tight budget. As far as decor, almost anything goes! Seating may be long family style picnic tables or elegantly dressed round tables. The drab interior of the barn may be dressed with dainty fairy lights, natural buntings, lush flowers or even chandeliers! You may serve tubs of beers or offer an open bar with a bartender. There are no rules for a barn wedding!

If your marriage ceremony and reception will be held mostly outdoors, you may wish to go with more of a Country Western Farm or Ranch Wedding Theme featuring vast pastures, hay bales, cowboy boots and tractors. An open air big tent may be used in case of bad weather and decorated with string lights. Leather and lace as well as horseshoes may be used as decor accents along with fresh flowers.

In keeping with the outdoor theme is the charming Woodland Wedding Theme. These enchanted forest weddings may be held deep into the woods of an arboretum or public park venue surrounded by tall trees or pines. This woodsy decor is all about natural effects such as different mosses, fragrant flowers, greenery and wood slices. Perfect for a couple of tree huggers!

The Industrial Chic Warehouse Wedding Theme is a newer wedding trend, especially in urban or city locales. This type of wedding is usually held in an older building marked with vintage exposed bricks or rocks and steel which can make for interesting wedding photographs. This is a great option for city dwellers who desire a rustic feel but have no access to barns. They can be decorated in much the same fashion to dress up the industrial feel with pretty lights, flowers and fabrics to offset the roughness of the brick and metal interiors.

Trending new this year is the Brewery Wedding Theme. Again for the couple that wishes to set a more informal tone for their nuptials but may not live in a rural setting, these gatherings are held in micro breweries serving unique craft beers. Decor for these weddings can include using brown glass beer bottles or growler jugs filled with flowers or dried hops and wheat as your centerpieces or accents. Using beer as your main alcoholic beverage makes wedding planning easy and and cut down on your bar costs.

So, as you can see there are many alternatives to the barn wedding if you are would like to plan a rustic wedding. Be creative and have fun making it your own style!
