Incorporating nature is a simple, environmentally conscious and budget-friendly way to give your wedding decor a unique, fresh look. Here are ten natural materials that make perfectly lovely wedding decorations!

1. Berries

Hypericum berries, snowberries and berzillia berries are all great choices for incorporating natural color and texture.

2. Moss

Give your ceremony and reception a rustic touch by adding moss to your altar or tablescape.

3. Birch

Use birch pillars of varied heights to hold tea lights or votive candles, or wrap sheets of bark around vases for cool, woodsy centerpieces.

4. Feathers

Feathers bring a bit of edgy glamour to your wedding decor. We love this fun ostrich feather chandelier and these lovely peacock feather aisle markers!

5. Grass

Grass is wonderful for displaying stationery like escort cards, place cards and table numbers.

6. Boxwood

Group toparies of various shapes and sizes for elegant centerpieces, or adorn entryways with simple boxwood wreaths.

7. Leaves

8. Herbs

Fragrant dried herbs are a perfect decorative choice for a wedding set in the countryside, garden or vineyard.

9. Branches

Gnarled, bare branches look pretty on their own, and can also be great for hanging guest notes, escort cards, votives, crystals and flowers! 

10. Fruit
