Mr and Mrs Wedding Chair Signs

Here at The Wedding of my Dreams we love all those little extra touches. Our wooden Mr and Mrs wedding chair signs can look stunning hanging from the backs of your wedding ceremony chairs and then move them through to your reception for your chairs for the wedding breakfast. Our wooden Mr and Mrs signs are in a calligraphy style font, they are plain light wood in colour but you may choose to paint them. We have known couples to use spray paint and paint them in gold and silver which both look fab but also love them in the natural wood as well. They could be painted any colour.

DIY Vintage Escort Cards

If you're looking for a unique way to display your escort cards or want something totally different to a traditional table plan then this might take your fancy. Cluster a number of bottles together on a table, fill with single stem flowers and tie a vintage brown paper luggage tag around the neck of the bottle with the guests name and table number written on it. Guests can collect their bottle and find out where they are sitting, the vases can double up as wedding favours as well.

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. tree slice stree stump wedding decoration ideas table number holders rustic woodland

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 Source: 1 Wooden bark table number holders // 2 Wooden tree branch name card holders // 3 Small tree slice table number // 4 Assortment of bark vases in different sizes // 5 Bark vases on tree slice table decoration // 6 Bark tea light holder // 7 Tree slice wedding centrepiece with grouping of bottles // 8 Small bark vases // 9 Layered tree slice wedding centrepiece // 10 Bark vase inside bell jar // 11 Tree slice stand for wedding favours (unknown source) // 12 Tree stump stand aisle decorations (unknown source) // 13 Wooden tree slice wedding cake // 14 Natasha Lisitsa, Waterlily Pond Floral Design - San Francisco, California Rustic wooden tree slices for weddings
