Enchanted Forest Wedding Centerpieces and Table Setting Ideas
There are many options when it comes to creating centerpieces and setting the table for an enchanted forest wedding. Here are a few ideas.
A simple candle and flower arrangement atop a woodcut base will easily add an woodsy-feel to your forest wedding centerpieces. Another economical and super cool idea is to use moss either as a centerpiece or as a table runner. This will add a contrasting green that will make any colored accent pop. Consider pairing succulents, ferns and candles into your enchanted forest wedding centerpieces to give them a romantic vibe.
The “forest” feel does not need to be over-the-top. Your tablescape could contain a few strategically-placed touches to incorporate the magic of the forest. If you are hosting an outdoor wedding, the centerpieces will probably do. If your wedding is indoors, you could add some jewels, stones or geodes to each table setting and use greenery for the centerpieces and decorations. Adding a few touches of color like cream or light hues of pink and orange will give it subtle, yet romantic feel.
Unique Woodland Wedding Decoration Inspiration
To add a bit of whimsy to your woodland wedding is to take inspiration from nature. Butterflies, ferns, gold or bronzed votives for soft candle light, branches and berries, woodcuts, books covered with moss, egg’s nests, lit up terrariums are all elements you can play with to create your own unique enchanted forest wedding.
If your reception is held outdoors, let your surroundings be the focal point of your wedding. Leverage the right lighting and a few accents and voilá! You could also bring more furniture outdoors to leverage that magical feel. This is the perfect time to incorporate a plush vintage sofa to your enchanted garden! Create a space where your guests can comfortably sit down and enjoy the conversation, the party and its ambiance.
Hang decor from a big old tree or illuminate it with fairy lights, your photographer will love you for the photo ops you would be creating!
If you are leaning towards an indoor enchanted forest wedding reception, incorporate the outdoors wherever you can. The green and earthy decorations will help but consider the permanent features of the space as well. Leverage the venue’s large windows or glass ceilings, if there are any available. Finding a venue that offers both indoor and outdoor spaces would be a win-win.
For an indoors woodland-themed reception, there are a number of ideas you can use to bring the outdoors in. Think soft lighting, abundant greenery – mostly ferns – hanging centerpieces, stones, garlands and jewel tones. But don’t be afraid to add a few touches of stronger color and not-so-earthy tones. They will look magnificent against the lush surroundings.
For soft lighting, you can use candles around your centerpieces and altar. Add the candles to a terrarium shaped holder or mason jar for added luminescence. If your venue won’t allow open flames, use battery lit candles or Chinese lanterns. Chinese lanterns can be wrapped around branches or wooden beams to enhance the forest-like feel.

The half-naked wedding cake look pairs perfectly with an enchanted forest themed wedding. You can add subtle floral embellishments to the tiers or a little bit of greenery to make the cake really stand out. If you would like to add the woodland wedding theme to the cake, you can opt for a geode wedding cake. Swoon! And double swoon!
A little bit goes a long way with this theme. As an added bonus, keeping floral arrangements as green as possible will be more cost efficient than florals. Placing the cake on a wooden or moss-covered stand will continue the enchanted woodland theme.
