Today on Trend Tuesday I am sharing a wedding trend I really love. Being an Arizona native I love the desert and the popularity of the desert or succulent themed weddings we are seeing right now. But, the latest trend that we have seen through 2016 and most likely carry through 2017 is the woodland, neutral themed weddings. Everything from the lush green centerpieces, to the wooden tables and various chairs makes my inner outdoorsy forest lover come to life (which isn’t very big…I am what you would call a “glamper”) If you are loving this trend as well here are a few elements I love that can help you pull it off!
1. Wooden Elements & Neutral Tones
In order to really pull off this look, and what I see on trend the most, is pulling in wooden farm tables and wooden chairs. I love the look in the image below because the couple opted for miss-matched, more worn-in chairs for their guest to sit in. This also taps into another trend where bride and grooms are opting for their reception to look like the inside of a home and have a family style event. The mixture of the black vases, neutral flowers, and gunmetal cups really help bring so many textural elements to each table scape.
2. Laser Cut Details
This is one of our newest obsessions over at Your Jubilee! We recently met with a local designer at the Secret Door Shoppe and he showed us all on the amazing things he can do and make with his laser cut machine! You have seen this trend recently with table numbers, cake toppers, and escort cards, but I definitely see this trend carry through and taken to a new level in 2017. These small wood details will help carry your woodland, forest theme all throughout your event. I love using laser cut details throughout the table scape and mixing a gold mirror laser cut with the raw wooden colors as well.
Dense greenery, wooden sticks, moss, and oversized statement flowers help bring this trend together. Utilizing various greenery such as ferns and eucalyptus can help accomplish this lush look. With more greenery in your bouquets, and center pieces you can choose 1-2 flowers for a pop of color that bloom big and can be the focus of the overall look. I love the over the top, woodsy look that moss brings to a wedding table. Bring in more to cover the seats, like the picture below to be even more creative!
