Trending Now: Wood-Themed Wedding Ideas
In recent months, it seems like a classic material has been a major source of inspiration in the wedding world. That material? Wood. Couples—and their vendors—have really taken things up a notch when it comes to experimenting with the stuff. That means using it in creative ways, but it also means working with trendy types of wood. There's even been an uptick in faux bois
details that don't contain the substance but strongly resemble it. Basically, wood has been everywhere lately, so we're highlighting some of the best examples of the trend. The following wood and wood-themed ideas are all incredibly unique.
What makes them unique, exactly? Well, it's a combination of factors. Usually, wooden décor elements are pieces of furniture, but now the possibilities extend much farther than that. Consider this couple's wedding invitations: Instead of using traditional paper, Tie That Binds printed their celebration's information on slabs of wood. Ahead, you'll find everything from wooden place settings to wooden ceremony aisles, too. Of course, wooden wedding furniture is still quite common. It just looks a little different at modern events. Couples might choose to work with fresh varieties (like light wood) or wooden pieces that break with tradition (like wooden bistro chairs instead of wooden chiavari chairs).
