We have been writing about fall-inspired weddings these last weeks and today is not the exception. Even if fall is almost done to give room to spring, there are still ideas we can implement if you are getting married in this beautiful and magic season. There is nothing that resembles more a fairy tale than weddings in the woods; therefore, if you have always dreamed with a fairy tale like wedding, this is the perfect opportunity for you to make your dreams come true.

The woods are full of magic, leafy trees and bucolic floral nature. You will be delighted by an explosion of intense colors thanks to the beautiful peonies and the most perfect moss rug that give color and softness to the environment and combined with a rustic decoration makes the whole thing look like taken out of a tale.

Autumn is so hard to resist because wedding ceremonies during this amazing time of the year are full of tastes and exquisite colors which makes it a perfect time to celebrate without the heat of summer and allowing you to take advantage of the natural landscapes that bloom during this season.

A perfect way to take advantage of all that nature gives us during autumn is to celebrate your wedding in the woods. These weddings are full of magic and are usually very intimate ceremonies with a reduced number of guests and a really simple decoration because, why would you need a super elaborate decoration when nature in its maximum majesty is the protagonist of the decoration? Just let nature express itself and your wedding will be stunning.

The details of weddings in the woods are usually obtained by using fruits, vegetables and flowers of the season such as grapes, mushrooms, pumpkin, squash, berries, lilies, sunflowers and much more. Combine them with decorative elements that match and you will have a dream wedding!
