A relationship is sprinkled with many memorable moments, but none compare to the one when you unite your destinies forever. So, the big day is fast approaching, and the enthusiasm seems to be growing day by day. You have already decided that you want a wedding in nature, away from the crowds and noise, but you don’t know where to start? Find out in this article what steps to follow for a fairytale wedding in the woods!
1. Forest themed weddings: Reasons why you should get married in the forest
If you are a couple who loves to walk in nature, hike or have any other outdoor activities, then a wedding in the woods would be the best choice for you – it will give you a sense of freedom and connection that may not be possible indoors. Nature has its own decorations and the forest offers you many options when it comes to choosing a theme or a dress code.
Here are a few reasons why the forest is the best venue for nature lovers:
- Space won’t be an issue
Whether you prefer a big wedding, with the whole family and friends, or a more private one, you can enjoy a wedding in which space will no longer be a problem. Guests will have the opportunity to dance freely or retire somewhere under a tree when they feel the need. Also, you can benefit from what nature can offer and organize outdoor activities in various spots to keep guests entertained.
- You won’t need any elaborate decorations
Depending on the chosen season, your wedding can be decorated naturally by the ornaments of nature. To highlight the beauty of the forest, you can use some decorative objects, such as string lights to decorate the trees, safe candles, wreaths and carved wood details.
- It’s the perfect place for a themed wedding
A wedding in the woods is like a story – you two are the main characters, and the guests become fairies, princes, wizards, knights and other figures specific to fairy tales and fantasy stories. Or you can get your inspiration from Shakespeare’s play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream – that’s something you don’t see everyday! No matter your choice, there are many ways you can organize a themed wedding, with costumes that complement the magic of nature. Certainly the guests will be delighted by this initiative, which will illustrate your out of the box style.
- It brings people close together
Many studies have shown that activities in nature can have a big impact on human’s behaviours – it helps reduce stress and worries and can also have a positive influence on creativity, memory and general moods. Moreover, it has a profound impact on human interaction, being the perfect environment for connecting with other people.
2. Enchanted forest themed wedding, in a few steps
Although it sounds like a dream wedding, organizing such an event in the forest is not an easy task. But when there’s desire and ambition, anything is possible! So, before you start this mission, there are a few things to keep in mind:
- Get a permit
You have already chosen the ideal location for you, but before you start setting up, check if the place needs a special permit. Only this way you’ll be allowed to organize your event without any issues.
- Book a registrar
See if the town hall to which the chosen area belongs has a state officer available to travel on your wedding day to officiate the civil ceremony. If this is not possible, you can always have a symbolic ceremony with the majestic nature as your witness.
- Decide on chairs and tables
If the weather allows, tables can be placed outdoors, under clear skies, with mosquito repellents at hand, of course! If, however, this idea is perhaps too bold (especially since you cannot predict the weather), place a tent with a transparent ceiling, through which the colors of the sky can be seen. As a design, wooden tables and stump chairs could be the elements to complete a rustic wedding.
- Choose your wedding costumes
Perhaps the most fun part of organizing a wedding, choosing the costumes is always a priority. And rightly so – the way you are dressed defines the event itself and is the centerpiece of the photo shoot.
For a forest themed wedding, the bride should wear a dress with a graceful design, made of light materials – lace, tulle, satin or silk, and decorated with delicate embroidery or even natural flowers. And the veil must be inspired by nature, tied to a floral wreath. The groom can find inspiration in vintage Hollywood movies – a light shirt, a hipster hat and a big smile.
- Hire a wedding planner
If you are not the kind of person who can be very calculated, organized, meticulous, insistent, resistant to frustration, with a lot of free time and patience, but you still want a perfect wedding, then you better let the professionals help you. The success of an event does not lie in its size or grandeur, but in the planning of small details and the creative ability to solve unforeseen problems to ensure the comfort of the guests. And a wedding in the forest is not an easy task! So, to successfully face all the issues that may come along, you need experience in the field.
