Creating a Forest Feel with Your Wedding Flowers

Do you dream of a wondrous woodland feel for your wedding day? The best way to create this natural style is with your wedding flowers.

An enchanted forest style can be created by bringing in a mix of flowers and greenery. This will reflect the reality of nature, and can give your venue a cool feeling at any time of the year.

Another way to recreate the forest feel is to think high. Taking your floral decoration upwards will make your guests feel like they’re in the shaded overhang of an old-growth forest. Instead of seeing a ceiling, they’ll see the beauty of nature enveloping them.

Of course, you can combine this type of decoration with either high or low centerpieces. Again, a combination of greenery and flowers is the perfect choice, and you can also consider giving your guests a living plant as favors for even more coverage. This allows them to take a piece of your magical forest wedding home with them.

  • Outdoor styles: Think trees and natural styles. The trend has been growing over the past few years, but is set to really take over in 2014. Don’t feel like you need to dig up a forest, though. Create tree-like centerpieces with a combination of delicate twigs and flowers.
  • Bird cage displays: This is a home décor trend that is crossing over to weddings in the coming year. Bird cages and bird themed décor is being given the floral touch, as romantic styled cages are being filled to bursting with gorgeous blooms.
  • Succulents: This became big this year, and is set to continue in 2014. If you’re planning an eco-friendly wedding day, these are the perfect choice, as your guests can take them home and replant them.
  • Bee friendly: The importance of bees has been a big story for the foodies, and this bee-friendly focus is coming to flowers, too. Wildflowers and local flowers are at the base of this trend, with many couples also offering guests seed bombs as wedding favors.
