The Hayloft is situated among rolling hills in the Laurel Highlands, which offers a picturesque country feel. That feeling was perfect for all of Mary Beth and Tyler’s fantastic wedding details. Some of their details include a sweet pair of cowboy boots, wooden card box, bunting, log signs, jam wedding favors, and more!

Hello, loves! Today we’re sharing some delightfully rustic inspiration in the form of a rustic fairytale wedding theme. But first… I recently went camping and my almost seven-year-old niece taught me a thing or two about fairies. At the campfire, she looked into the woods and pointed at brief sparks of light. These sparks – lightning bugs, naturally – are not lightning bugs. They’re fairies. Acorns? Fairy hats. Holes in the tree? Fairy houses. Moss? Moss is just moss. (I thought – pixie dust! – but she informed me, “No, Aunt Emma, that’s just moss.” Bless her heart.) I wanted to share that story to remind you that a wedding theme can be ANYTHING you dream it to be. A fairytale wedding doesn’t have to be all Cinderella carriages, castles, and crowns. If you’re an eco-bride, would prefer a position as princess of the woods vs. the ballroom, and you need some serious inspiration for a unique wedding theme, you’ve come to the right place. Today we’re sharing an exclusive Enchanted rustic fairytale wedding shoot by a stellar team of wedding pros with photography by Jessy Carté. So, without further adieu… let’s get started!

Hello, lovelies! Today we’re talking about how to plan a wood grain wedding. But first, what is a wood grain wedding? A wood grain wedding is a wedding theme synonymous with faux bois or woodland. It also ties in with rustic details, but emphasizes the look of a tree’s natural wood grain whether found in nature or imitated through various types of mixed media. The setting of a wood grain wedding is typically in the woods, on a farm, or in a barn; this theme is ideal for a couple who loves to camp, hike, or just enjoy the great outdoors. If I was planning a wood grain wedding, I’d use tree slices (placed under centerpiece vases), wood grain paper (as table runners), and I would incorporate burlap whether as ribbon wrapped around homespun favors (like jam) or as chair sashes for the head table. To add a soft touch, I would tie baby’s breath bunches into wildflower bouquets and use mason jars as vases. I would create a trail mix bar for guests, display my wedding cake on a rustic tree slice, and use a themed cake topper (like the one shown below) to dress up a simple buttercream cake. I love all the options and versatility this wedding theme has to offer! Read on to see thirty-one amazing wood grain wedding ideas to plan yours… and let us know which finds you love best. I wish I could pick a favorite, but it’s a tie between #25 and #17…
