Whether you’re having an open-air celebration, a woodland wedding or a luxury event, wedding tree decor can make an impact. You can use it to accent your already gorgeous wedding venue or make it the main event - seriously, there’s no shortage of ways to work in wedding tree decorations. We’ve rounded up our favourite to help get you inspired.
Here are a few drop dead gorgeous wedding tree decor ideas.
If you like the idea of saying your vows under an arch, but want something a touch more woodsy, frame your wedding altar with wisteria or blossom tree arches. You can leave them bare or dress up their branches with lights, garlands and baubles to customize the look to your wedding theme.
Wedding aisle decorations usually come in the form of floral arrangements, but for those who want something bigger and bolder, trees are the way to go. Word to the wise, if you’re opting for taller varieties, make sure they don’t block anyone’s view with their branches.
Planning on finishing off your ceremony with a classic confetti toss? Well, you’ll need a place for people to pick up their cones of petals or paper. Hang them from the branches of a petite tree and they’ll double as wedding tree decorations.
Skip the standard floral arrangements and go for wedding decorations hanging from trees to create your table centrepieces. You can hang candles from cherry blossom trees (as pictured at top) or decorate bare branches with baubles, hanging candles and mini vases (pictured here). These are super stunning and will definitely inspire a few oohs and ahhs. Pro tip: Choose taller trees so that your guests don’t have to peer through branches and leaves to talk with their tablemates - they’ll thank you for it.
If you’re on the hunt for a unique way to display your table plan, this is it! Simply hang notes or ornaments with your guests’ names from tree branches so that they know where to sit. You can totally do this with escort cards, too.
Ask your guests to leave their hopes and dreams for your relationship on tree branches before they say goodbye. You can use a wishing tree in place of a wedding guestbook or double down and do both.
If you want to go that extra mile, use wedding tree decor to show off your cakes, pastries and other goodies. This is definitely more interesting than a table display, so don’t be shocked if you catch your guests snapping pics.
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: wedding cakes may fall under the food category, but they’re so pretty that they should be considered wedding decor. Work your woodsy wedding theme into your dessert by asking your baker to model your tiered confection after a tree, like this. If you want to amp up your display, you could even surround it with branches and greenery.
