Ideas & Advice

A pretty woodland-themed wedding backdrop you can easily DIY yourself!

The quaint Open Farm Community bistro feels like a hidden tropical paradise from the minute you walk in, and sets the perfect scene for DIY wedding decor rental company Suitcase Weddings' whimsical woodland-themed set.
 

Now you can dress up your reception or pre-wedding shoot without hiring a stylist. Suitcase Weddings rents out pre-packed thematic decor in a suitcase that you can easily assemble with your bridesmaids or helper. With gorgeous themes like Vintage Travel and a Walk in The Woods (as you'll see in the following pictures), each suitcase has props, backdrops and other accents for a Pinterest-worthy setting! 

The Look: The perfect look to go with this charming setting? A flower crown, a lush bouquet and a pretty dress.

The Details: There's something fairy tale like about a woodland-themed setting, and the gathering of adorable forest creatures, rustic cans and bundles of twigs is an enchanting fusion of pastoral charm for your outdoor ceremony.

 

The Details: Effortlessly romantic handmade paper stationery with soft deckle edges and elegant calligraphy will suit your nature-inspired fete.

 

The Flowers: Blooms in powder pink and virginal white may be perennial favourites, but a dash of pastel yellow lends a cheery, welcoming pop of colour.
