Planning a rustic wood themed wedding? You’ve come to the right place for ideas + inspiration! So… the other day, Andrew & I were talking about our anniversary (8 years soon!) and for fun, we looked up what the ‘traditional’ anniversary gifts by year. For eight, which we celebrate this year, it is linen or lace. We thought back on past years and noticed that year five is wood, which was ironically perfect for us. In that year alone, we built a brand new wood fence in our backyard, bought a new wood dining bench that took forever to find, and we even had a huge tree branch fall into our backyard (which split my sweet little Intex pool in half, but that’s beside the point). Anyways, since I link everything to wedding planning in my mind, I thought, hmm, a wood themed wedding. That might be interesting for a rustic couple looking to tie in handmade wedding ideas, right? Amazingly, there are some really gorgeous wood themed wedding ideas out there… and today we’re sharing all of our favorites in one convenient spot! We present: the wood themed wedding! Enjoy!
