I’m a sucker for twists on traditional wedding finds, so when I spotted this flower girl wand at PNZ Designs I couldn’t wait to share it with you. If your ceremony venue doesn’t allow for tossing petals, skip the basket and let her carry a flower girl wand instead. She’ll feel like a princess — and she’ll love the fact she can keep the wand (personalized with her monogram) after the wedding day.
Do you dream of a wedding in the woods, exchanging vows underneath trees and enjoying a reception off the beaten path? Today’s woodland wedding inspiration post is for you! A wedding in the woods is a romantic venue; nature is beauty in itself and makes a perfect backdrop for exchanging vows. And, your friend Mother Nature will take care of most of the decorating herself, which means all you have to do is add a few unique touches to make the space your own! It requires a bit more in terms of setup for catering and seating, but we think the result is well worth the extra work. Read on to find out how to plan a chic wedding in the woods with hand-picked inspiration including handmade wedding items & Real Wedding examples from real couples like you! Enjoy!
Does it get more beautiful than this?
Good morning + Happy Monday! We hope your weekend was filled with relaxation, plenty of sunshine + a pool to cool off in for a bit. :) We’re kicking off the week with these whimsical rustic burlap letters. There are few things I love more (in the decor world) than a detail that goes from event to love nest in no time flat. Add a personal touch to your wedding decor with the bride’s first initial, groom’s first initial, and initial of your new last name. Proudly display on your cake table, escort card table, or head table and place in your home after the wedding day! It would look lovely as wall decor, don’t you think? Letters measure 8″ high and 1″ wide and are made of a lightweight paper mache wrapped in burlap. You can customize yours with lace, mulberry paper flowers or handmade silk flowers to complement your color palette.
Looking for a charming ring pillow alternative? We found it! This nest ring pillow stack spotted via The Dainty Woods is a beautifully rustic, whimsical alternative to a traditional satin and lace ring bearer pillow. Each pillow stack features two vintage books wrapped in ribbon + lace (for a pretty detail) or jute (to add additional rustic charm) with a moss-filled nest on top. Your wedding rings can be tied inside to or placed inside the nest for a secure fit. We love these pillow alternatives: so unique! Also, did we mention they are handmade? It’s true.

Good Morning + Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine (Emma here!) was relaxing + full of adventures. I hope yours was great, too! I spent mine with good friends, good food + tons of laughs in a nature-filled cabin up north, and I thought today was as good as any to bring forth some nature-inspired handmade goodness. Enjoy this inspiration board chock full of woodland wedding inspiration, all (of course) handmade….
