We love how this couple decided to fill their wooden crates with lots of fruit. This is a lovely idea if you’re having a drink station with lots of fruity cocktails or flavoured water. You could also use the crates to hold sweetie bags or other snacks during the reception. This is a great option for the evening guests to help themselves too if they’re feeling peckish.

Rustic Winter Woodland Wedding Decorations

Are you getting married in the winter? Have you chosen what style of winter wedding you are going for? Today we are looking at rustic winter woodland wedding ideas and decorations. This winter look is not at all Christmas inspired, so if perfect if you are getting married in the winter months or run p to Christmas but don’t want a Christmas inspired wedding.

We styled this table for a rustic winter woodland wedding, scroll down to see all the decorations and details we suggest.


For winter woodland centrepieces, wooden crates or reclaimed wooden boxes can work well. Stick to soft grey and green tones for the florals with a highlight of white. Here we have used white ranunculus and wax flower with grey dusty miller, brunia, fir cones and spruce. Natural looking place card holders made from tree branches and for the favours boxes cream boxes with a decoration of spruce and brunia to the lid.

If you are lucky enough to have wooden tables at your wedding venue a light muslin table runner can look lovely laid down the centre of the table. Lay moss, cinnamon and pine cones over the table for a woodland winter look. Tiny white bud vases can be dotted around the main centrepiece for extra florals and our chalky glass tea light holders tie in with this look too, on the table brown card table numbers work well with this look to show guests which table is which. rustic winter woodland wedding table decorations

As an alternative table number you could use wooden disc table numbers. For each guests’ place setting, plates could be laid on a wooden tree slice as a place mat, this will look stunning on the tables are really create a woodland feel. Favours could be mini bottles of slow gin or something sweet in a hessian favour bag. rustic winter woodland wedding table decorations

3. For an alternative rustic centerpiece use these bark vases, wild flowers with lots of texture look best in these rustic containers. The vases come in different sizes depending on how low or high you want your centrepieces to be, if flowers aren’t your style the bark containers can also be used as lanterns. Buy bark vases here.

4. For a simple yet still very rustic look you could collect jam jars to be used as your vases. Decorate the jam jars with twine or hessian to add a rustic look and fill with flowers of your choice. If you are doing these yourself you can decorate the jam jars well in advance of your wedding and as the flowers are in water they can be done the day before so you don’t have to be making them up on the wedding day.

5. Similar to the jam jars above these blue mason jars look fab as wedding centrepieces. You could even use dried wheat instead of fresh flowers for a rustic / barn wedding.

6. For a larger floral display in the centre of a table rusty urns can work well. For the flowers a mixture of natural textures including moss, foliage with berries such as this eucayptus and seasonal blooms work well. Buy rusty urns here.

7. We love this idea of using trinkets and special items you may have been given throughout your life or sourced from charity shops especially for the tables. You can use a mix of different items here but be sure to link them, you can link them by choosing a colour scheme, bronze works well with the natural tones of wood. Place the items on pieces of wood and add minimal foliage.

9. If you want to decorate your vases yourself find some cheap clear glass vases, ikea or eBay probably have some great ones. Decorate these with hessian fabric and an overlap of lace ribbon to given them that rustic feel. This vase has been filled with gypsophila but you can ask add the flowers of your choice.

10. For a taller rustic centrepiece tall glass vases with ever larger wooden branches placed within them can look stunning. Add white hydrangeas to the vases so there is some floral interest at eye level. Hang small jam jars / tea light holders from the branches which can be lit and will transform your venue as the lights go dim later on in the evening.
