Looking for ways to lend that rustic vibe to your North Jersey wedding? Tree slices are great for adding a natural feel to your wedding decorations and they can be used for a wide range of purposes.
Here are a few ideas for incorporating tree slabs into your wedding décor:
Serving Trays: Make an impression by having your butlered hors d’oeuvres served on tree slice platters during cocktail hour.
Cake Stand: A thick section cut from the trunk of a tree makes the perfect rustic cake stand for your tiered wedding cake!
Station Displays: If you’re planning on having serving stations at your reception, you can use tree stumps of varying heights to create the perfect rustic food display. For a sit-down dinner, large tree slices make excellent chargers for your place settings.
Ring Pillow: For that trip down the aisle, trade in the traditional ring pillow for a small wooden slab to help carry the rustic theme through to your ceremony.
Place Cards: Have the name of each guest engraved on a small slice of wood to help them find their seats. Guests will love the gesture and can even take them home as mementos of the event.
Table Numbers: Fancy stamps or stencils combined with a tree slice can bring table numbers a charming appeal for a rustic wedding in North Jersey.
Guest Book: For a unique take on the guest book, supply your guests with a large slab of wood to sign. This can be hung on a wall at home for an attractive reminder of your wedding day.
Signs: Tree slices make great signs, as well! Use them to direct your guests towards the ceremony, reception, or photo booth or to identify menu items at the buffet.
Centerpieces: To give your centerpieces a more rustic look, you can use tree slabs as bases for the floral arrangements or candles you place at each table.
Wedding Favors: For perfect rustic wedding favors, have mini slices of wood engraved with words like “love” or with your initials and wedding date.
