Dried Carpet Moss For Weddings

This week our wedding decoration of the week is perfect for rustic woodland wedding styling. Our boxes of dried carpet moss for weddings are fab for adding that rustic touch to your table and venue styling.

Moss can be used to add a woodland touch to wooden tree slices, place small pieces of moss over your wooden slices in between vases and tea light holders. For long tables lay a carpet of moss down the length of the table which can look lovely with roses and other blooms laid over it with a mix of candle holders. If doing your own flowers and using one of our wooden crate centrepieces add moss as a lining so it pokes through the gaps in the wood for a more rustic look. Use moss to create your own woodland initials, or a rustic wreath.

Winter Woodland Wedding Ideas & Decorations – Inspiration Board

Our new winter woodland wedding collection has been a popular choice for couples getting married this winter. If you are planning a wedding during the winter and want a rustic feel to the day use our inspiration board to take some ideas for your own wedding.

We have been pinning our lots winter woodland wedding decorations and ideas and have created an inspiration board of our favourites. To create a woodland feel at your wedding use natural materials, tree slices for centrepieces, tree stumps with candles to line the aisle for a warm and cosy feel. You could make your own woodland candle holders with bark sheets and a mason jar (see our how to guide here). Centrepieces could be crates filled with winter florals, for a winter woodland style we love mixing the green tones of moss and fir with grey brunia and dusty miller as well as a touch of white with roses, cotton or ranunculus. Guests could be given blankets as favours and for the place settings we love the idea of a luggage tag with the guests name tied to a sprig of fir tree or spruce.
