There are few things more magical than being in a beautiful forest surrounded by nature and those you love. Whether you are actually getting married in a forest, or simply weaving nature into your wedding, here are some ideas to make your forest themed wedding absolutely enchanting!

Logs for Seating

After your guests walk through the woods to your ceremony location, have logs for seating rather than folding chairs. It will make your wedding feel like a magical fairy party.

Ditch the Cover

A move that is a high risk, high reward – opt to ditch the tent and have dinner in the open air. Nestled between trees will feel like a fancy camping dinner.

Give Back

Instead of buying wedding favours, opt instead to donate to a charity that plants trees or works towards forest conservation.

Fairy Lights

Really make your wedding enchanted by hanging fairy lights. In our opinion, there is no upper limit to how many you can add. Their warm light will make your photos magical.


Everyone loves a good bonfire, especially if it comes with s’mores. Take your guests back to their childhood complete with cozy blankets and an acoustic guitar.

Encourage your guests to socialize and connect with nature by having a picnic meal. We’re dreaming of custom baskets, comfy pillows and charcuterie boards.


A great favour to give your guests at your forest themed wedding is succulents. These little plants are easy to care for and will last for a long time. That’s one favour that your guests will love and won’t end up in the garbage!

Loose Bouquet

We love a loosely tied bouquet full of rich colours that complement greenery. Having a loose bouquet brings an enchanted whimsical feeling to your wedding.

All the Reclaimed Wood

There’s something about reclaimed wood that makes everything feel a little more enchanted and elevated. Use reclaimed wood for your bar top; coasters or charcuterie boards.

Neutral Colour Palette

Allow the forest to speak for itself by using a neutral colour palette. This will allow the colours of the forest to really pop!
