Natural Wooden Bark And Tree Slice Wedding Decoration Ideas ~ Rustic Woodland

Are you hoping to create a woodland or rustic feel at your wedding? Maybe you have chosen a venue that suits the woodland style (a barn or farm wedding venue) or perhaps as a couple, you love the outdoors, and a woodland wedding just feels right.

One way to create a woodland style is to use lots of natural materials, we have chosen our favourite natural wood, bark and tree slice wedding decorations as well as ideas that you could use to create this look yourselves.

Natural wood & bark table number holders & place settings

For your wedding table numbers you could choose to have a table number holder made from an actual tree branch, use narrow branches so they don’t take up too much space on the table and slot your table number card into them. Or alternatively use a small tree slice and engrave the table number or name into it. This looks best propped up against your centrepiece so it is visible for guests.

Natural bark vases, tea light holders and tree slice wedding centrepieces

You want to create a relaxed centrepiece for a woodland styled wedding, nothing too perfect and uniformed, not all tables have to be the same. There are a number of different wooden bark vases and vessels that could be used to hold your flowers. Wild flowers look best with lots of texture. Around the bark vases add in a couple of bark tea light holders to complete the look.

The majority of venues provide a white linen table cloth for your tables, this is not very rustic! You will be surprised, adding a hessian table runner over the cloth works wonders. Or for an even more rustic touch use a wooden tree slice as the base of your centrepiece, positioning your bottles, jars and vessels on top. tree slice stree wedding centrepiece decoration ideas rustic woodland

Extra wedding decorations and ideas using tree stumps

Wooden tree slices or tree stumps could be used as a base for more than just your centrepieces. Large tree slices can be used for your wedding cake or lots of smaller ones for cup cakes or a dessert table.

For an outdoor woodland wedding ceremony, position larger tree stumps down either side of the aisle and place jam jars with flowers and candles on top. A simple but effective look. We also really love the idea of gathering lots of large tree stumps and piling them up to create shelves. Add candles in jam jars and vases to create a wow factor display. rustic woodland tree slice wedding cake stree stump wedding ceremony decoration ideas

Copper Wedding Ideas And Decorations

When it comes to recent wedding trends, there has been one on our radar that we just cannot ignore. While gold and silver have always been a popular choice for wedding colour schemes, couples are now swapping traditional metallic hues with industrial-inspired copper. This ultra-cool shade is a wonderful choice for a modern wedding with an edgy, urban vibe. However, you can also create a rustic glamour theme by teaming it with lots of wooden details. Have a nosey at our favourite copper wedding ideas and decorations…

Copper Wedding Ideas And Decorations

Brides and grooms are getting super creative when it comes to their ceremony spaces, and a copper archway really create a very special area to exchange your vows. You could adorn a copper archway with greenery and flowers, or you could surround it with lanterns and candles.

We have a fab collection of copper wedding ideas and decorations. Our copper candle sticks and tea light holders look divine dotted around your wedding venue, along your gift table or as part of your table centrepieces. Team copper candles with our dried moss table runner for a rustic glamour effect, or pair with copper terrarium vases for an industrial theme.

copper wedding decorations and ideas

Copper tolix chairs are a stylish alternative to traditional pews or wedding reception chairs, and they will help to give your wedding venue a chic modern vibe. If you do opt for a foliage copper archway, why not keep the same design throughout your big day by decorating copper chairs with greenery.

Metallic cakes have recently become a very delicious craze in the world of weddings, and your guests won’t be able to resist a slice of copper-iced wedding cake. On the other hand, you could have a very simple white iced cake with a copper calligraphy cake topper. We suggest displaying it on a copper cake stand or sequin table runner. As mentioned earlier, if you do want to team copper wedding ideas with rustic details, why not display a copper cake on a wooden tree slice?

There are lots of lovely ways to incorporate copper into your aisle style too. While a copper wedding dress will make a serious statement as you walk down the aisle, it may not suit everyone! Instead, you could rock some copper jewellery, accessories and even a pair of copper-style bridal shoes. Add a hint of copper to your wedding bouquet by wrapping a silk metallic ribbon around the stems of your blooms – it’ll be all you need to reflect your stylish colour scheme! The groom will look gorgeous in a navy suit teamed with a copper or burnt orange buttonhole. He could also wear copper cufflinks for a subtle nod towards your ultra-cool wedding theme.

This wedding theme is modern, stylish and guaranteed to be envy-inducing! Take a look at our gold, glitter & bronze wedding decorations here.

When To Buy Natural Wedding Confetti Petals?

Are you using our natural biodegradable confetti petals for your wedding confetti? You’ve made a great choice if you are. Our confetti petals come in 5 different colour ways to suit any style of wedding, ivory, blush pink, deep purple, blue and summer mix (our favourite!).

When To Buy Natural Wedding Confetti Petals? And many more questions answered…

Read on to find out some of our frequently asked questions about buying real confetti petals for your wedding.

See our wedding petal confetti for sale here.

Natural biodegradable wedding confetti petals in blue pink cream purple mix

Here we have answered some of your most common confetti petal questions.

Are your petals biodegradable?

Yes! Our petals are 100% natural and biodegradable. Our petals all come from delphiniums which have been grown with love and care on a family farm. The petals are hand picked and packed with no artificial colourings added.

My venue only allows natural petals. Are yours OK?

Most venues and churches are perfectly happy with biodegradable petals. Our petals will biodegrade in a couple of days so the venue will not have to sweep them up. If petals are left scattered around your venue they act exactly the same as blossom falling from trees or petals falling from flowers and will biodegrade very quickly.

When Should I Buy My Confetti?

Our petals last for up to 1 year. We suggest ordering 2 – 3 months before your wedding as they will keep so well, but don’t worry if you leave it until the last minute as we have a next day delivery option you can choose. Once you receive the petals we suggest storing them in a cool dry place.

How much should I buy?

We sell our petals by the handful to make it easy for you to calculate this. One handful will also fill one cone.

Do I need to buy enough petals for everyone attending my wedding?

This is completely up to you! You can buy enough for everyone if you wish, or just for half the number of guests as you may find couples only take one handful between them. Some guests may also bring their own confetti.

I’m sprinkling the petals over a table, how much should I buy?

Our petals make a lovely table decoration, sprinkle one handful over each round table or trestle table. Use blush pink natural confetti petals to cover tables - available from The Wedding of my Dreams @theweddingomd

What do you suggest I present the petals in?

You can keep it simple and pour your petals into a basket or trug that is left at the back of the church for guests to help themselves.


Display your confetti petals in paper cones for guests to have a cone each or cone between their family.


Alternatively display your confetti petals in glass jars, you could have a mix of different colours and guests could help themselves as to which colour they fancy.


Our cotton confetti bags are also a popular choice, we have bags that read ‘sprinkle me‘ and ‘throw me‘ which is a lovely touch. Or how about pouring your petals into cones.
