BEAUTIFUL WOODLAND WEDDING DETAILS

woodland

As spring has sprung at all our woodland wedding venues, we can’t stop thinking about weddings. This year, we’re absolutely in love with details. We love seeing all the little touches that couples bring to their weddings at GreenAcres. If you’re planning your big day and looking for some beautiful woodland-inspired wedding details, here are some of our favourites.

Woodland wedding details and ideas

woodland wedding stationery

Remember that the first hint guests will get about your wedding is your invitation. Why not opt for a stationery suite that has a distinctly outdoorsy vibe? They’ll be super keen to reply and share the day with you.

wedding dress details

Even if your ceremony is taking place indoors, add a little bit of nature to your wedding dress. We love these embellishments and they would be perfect for a woodland wedding.

woodland wedding flowers

When it comes to your flowers, go for seasonal blooms. We all love arrangements that are as natural as possible. Our woodlands look amazing right through the year but if you’re getting married in bluebell season, photos are essential.

woodland wedding signs

Recently, wedding signage has become super popular and it’s easy to see why. Not only are your signs a great detail but they’re also practical and can really help guests. Signs explain where to go and they set the scene for the day.

Creating your own ceremony area, or an area for photos, is always a good idea. There’s so much that you can do to put your own personal stamp on the day.

table plan ideas

Working your wedding theme right through your day is essential and styled table plans will always grab everyone’s attention! Have some fun designing a table plan that works with your wedding theme and don’t be afraid to do something different.

Incorporating a motif into your day and using it across all your wedding details is a great idea. For example, woodland animals can bring your place settings, table centres, table plans and even your wedding cake to life!

woodland wedding cakes

Speaking of wedding cake, go for a design that includes lots of woodland touches. From natural decorations to hand-painted flourishes and wooden cake stands, that lots to choose from. Of course, there’s nothing to stop you opting for a tower of doughnuts or a display of sweet treats if you prefer.

There’s really no end to the fantastic details that you can include in your woodland wedding. How about suspended foliage hoops and embroidered designs? Do you love macramé decorations, floral headpieces and large letters full of plants? The choice is yours. Enjoy planning all the details for your wedding – these are the things that make your day yours.

Don’t forget that we’re holding Open Days at our woodland wedding venues on Sunday 19thMay – for all the latest news, make sure that you’re following us on Facebook and Instagram.

WEDDING INSPIRATION – LIVING CORAL

2019 looks set to be all about colour and one colour in particular is going to make a big splash at weddings this year. The experts at Pantone have announced that Living Coral is their favourite shade for the next twelve months and the announcement has made the wedding world very happy. Not only is coral already a popular choice for weddings but Living Coral is a bolder shade that’s perfect for adding bright pops of colour throughout your wedding day. Here’s our guide to using Living Coral on your big day.

The first thing to say about Living Coral is that it works really well with lots of other colours so it’s great for weddings at any time of year. Use it with lots of greenery and neutral shades in spring and summer or navy in autumn and winter. Living Coral is great against greys and also with tropical shades in summer and autumnal colours as the seasons change. That said, Living Coral works best when it’s an accent colour rather than the dominant shade in the colour palette.

So, where does Living Coral look best? Well, we love seeing pops of colour used in ways that you just can’t ignore. A few coral coloured blooms on a table plan will definitely attract the attention of guests, which is just what you want! Similarly, give you guests a hint of your colour choice by using Living Coral on your stationery – opt for a fun, modern design or something more classic if you prefer. It doesn’t matter because Living Coral works for all styles.

One of our favourite ways to bring your wedding colour scheme to life is always you’re your bridesmaids. Choose a bridesmaid’s dress in Living Coral and then add more colour with their bouquets. It’s up to you whether you go for matching dresses or a more relaxed mix-and-match of styles – it’s the colour that’s the important thing!

We absolutely have to talk about flowers because there’s no better way to bring colour to your wedding. Right now, we love wedding flowers that have a really natural style. It’s almost as if they haven’t been arranged at all and this ‘undone’ look is just perfect for woodland weddings. Speak to your florist to see what blooms will be available on your big day in Living Coral and then add lots of texture and contrast to arrangements and bouquets. If you’re on a budget, use just a couple of statement blooms with lots of greenery.

When it comes to the details of the day, you can really go to town! Create your own ribbon backdrop to highlight your cake table with Living Coral and other coordinating colours or paint bottles and jars and use these to hold flowers or sprigs or gypsophilia. A dip-dyed dress is a cool choice for brides and buttonholes always add colour to your groom and groomsmen’s suits. Balloons are ideal for fun weddings and don’t forget coral coloured cakes and cocktails!

Don’t forget that we’re holding our spring Open Days at all our woodlands on Sunday 19thMay and we’d love to see you. There’s a 10% discount on all wedding packages over £1000that are booked on the day.

PROPOSING TO YOUR BRIDESMAIDS – 14 GREAT IDEAS

GreenAcres woodland weddings

This feature is all about proposals. However, there’ll be no mention of engagement rings and no one needs to get down on one knee. Instead, we’re talking about how best to pop the question to your bride tribe. Your bridesmaids will play a big part in your day and you’ll definitely want your best girls by your side. So, why not propose to them in style? Here are 14 great ideas for fab bridesmaid proposals.

  • Bridesmaid kit boxes are a great way to pop the question. You can buy them ready made or create your own so that they’re full of everything your maids will need for the day. Whether you choose treats or practical goodies, your bridesmaid boxes will be a brilliant gift for your girls.
  • Everyone loves sweet treats so why not propose with some fancy confectionary? Personalised macarons or biscuits are always yummy, or you could opt for a doughnut instead. The more sprinkles the better!

  • Why not give your girls something special to wear with a gorgeous piece of jewellery? Knot-shaped or ring-shaped earrings, necklaces and bracelets all suit the wedding theme and, let’s be honest, we all love a new piece of jewellery!
  • A handwritten note inside a beautiful card can be really meaningful so propose with words and tell your bridesmaids just how much they mean to you. You could even give them a hint of what’s to come by choosing a card that works with your wedding colour palette.

how to propose to bridesmaids

  • Your bridesmaids are sure to look fantastic on your big day and no doubt they’ll be wearing something very special. Gift them a very special hanger so that they can keep their gowns in tip-top condition before the day. These also look ace in wedding day photos too.
  • If your bridesmaids love their caffeine hit, why not gift them a mug that asks the question for you? If you personalise it with your wedding date, they’ll have their save the date to hand at all times.
  • A fabulous bridesmaid t-shirt will definitely make your maids feel as if they’re part of the club from the word go. Wear them on your hen weekend or on the morning of your wedding, it’s up to you.
  • It doesn’t matter how old you get, balloons always bring the party vibe. Propose with a balloon that has to be popped so that your bridesmaids are showered in confetti and a handwritten note asking them to be by your side on the big day.

bridesmaid proposals

  • Bridesmaid robes are another great gift that your maids can wear on the morning of your wedding. Luxurious yet practical for wedding day hair and makeup, bridesmaid robes are really popular, and with good reason.
  • Another useful but glam gift is a bridesmaid pouch or makeup bag. Your bridesmaids can keep their on the day essentials with them (and even carry a few for you!) and you can be sure these will also be used once the day is over.
  • Show your bridesmaids just how special they are to you by creating a frame featuring old photos of you both. Proposal gifts don’t get more personal than this.
  • Fab and fun hair ties are an inexpensive yet brilliant proposal gift. Your maids can wear them on your hen weekend so everyone knows that they’re your wedding day VIPs.

bridesmaid ideas

  • Candles are a delightful gift at any time and they’re a lovely luxe proposal gift. Choose your favourite fragrance or opt for a personalised, strictly limited-edition version for your lucky maids.
  • Finally, if you’d like to celebrate your bridesmaid proposal with a glass of something sparkly, why not design a custom label to create your own vintage bottle from your favourite tipple. Add a gorgeous glass into the gift box if you want to really show your maids the love.
