Wood Inspired Wedding Decor

A rustic, natural theme is continuing to grow in popularity for events and is something brides are coming to Keith Watson Events looking to achieve at their wedding. Many brides have chosen to have some portion of their wedding outside whether that be their ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, or the entire event! Either way, incorporating rustic decor is a beautiful idea that we have seen accomplished in so many unique ways.

Willow branches are a gorgeous way to add another natural element into any floral arrangement. For centerpieces at dining tables, they are absolutely lovely placed with tall arrangements to create height and really wow guests. We love this display designed in a clear vase to allow guests to see the branches submerged in the water. Adding votive candle light surrounding this display really makes this entire arrangement stunning as evening approaches.

Continuing with the wood decor accents,  wooden disks are an easy way to enhance a rustic theme at a wedding as well. Here at Keith Watson Events, we use this decor element often when designing rustic centerpieces. Whether using a few small wooden disks and placing mason jars, wine bottles, etc. on them or using one large wooden disk and placing a larger vase or bowl filled with flowers on it. Either arrangement can really play up that country feel brides are envisioning. We even love the idea of using a wooden disk as a cake stand! How creative!

Finally, here are a few more creative ways to use wood decor accents that we just love! One idea we found was to use a log and cut out openings to hold guest’s place card holders. Another fun idea was to make table numbers out of wood. Even having wine barrels as decor is a great rustic addition to your decor.

Bouquet Charms

Keith Watson Events has recently seen an increase in brides incorporating their own personal mementos in their weddings. For many of our weddings this season, we have noticed a reoccurring trend with our brides personalizing their bouquets by requesting to have a charm, locket, or some other personal item placed in their bouquet.

We think it is such a memorable way to recognize family members who aren’t present on this special day! Some brides put pictures of these loved ones in lockets to be placed in the bouquet. Others actually have something that belonged to this family member, such as a trinket or bracelet, worked into the bouquet. We think all of these personalized ideas are such unique ways to include someone who means so much to you.

Other ideas for brides to consider include incorporating your “something blue” item by having a trinket or personal good-luck charm placed into your bouquet. So far, we have been able to work in whatever brides give us to be placed on the handle of their bouquet. Whatever you can think up works for us!
