These Ask Emmaline questions keep rolling in and we’re absolutely loving them! (P.S. You can send in yours right here!) Last week we received this rustic wedding question from bride-to-be Brittany. She is planning a barn wedding and wants to know where to buy wood slices for wedding centerpieces. She asks,
“Emmaline, I am looking for round wood slices for wedding decorations (the reception table centerpieces) and one for my cake as a cake stand. My wedding theme is rustic and we are having a barn reception. Do you have any suggestions where to get really nice looking wood slices for weddings?”
Where to Buy Wood Slices for Wedding Centerpieces
There are a handful of places to get wood slices for wedding centerpieces / decor / cake stands, but you never really know what you’re getting until it arrives. Am I right? I’ve seen some wood slices in craft stores but they are so expensive and they’re not as beautiful as the ones I’ve seen online, especially when you can see them being used in wedding photos. One place to buy wood slices for wedding centerpieces is Root To Vine, where the wood slices are hand-cut from poplar trees. They are then kiln dries to prevent cracks and sanded down on both sides for a smooth finish. (You won’t find quality like this at many retailers.) To top it off, Amy and Sean, owners of Root To Vine, take it one step further and, after cutting the wood, drying it, and sanding it down, they coat each wood slice with two coats of clear matte polycrylic on each side to make sure your wood slices do not crack. In fact, Amy made these very same wood slices for wedding centerpieces at her own wedding and she says they still look great three years later. Quality makes all the difference.
You can use these wood slices for wedding decorations, centerpieces, the dessert table, head table, or guest book table.
They offer larger wood slices for wedding cake stands, as shown here:
What a beautiful addition to your rustic wedding! After the big day, you can use them around your home as a plant base or trivet in your kitchen. Money well spent, we say!
