10 Creative Ways to Use Wood Slabs in Your Wedding Decor
There’s just something so very homey and comforting about wood decor—and when it comes to weddings, that’s the exact vibe that many couples want for their big day.
By now, most people have seen the beautiful effect that wood accents can add to an event, but it’s not always common sense on how to decorate with them. Here are some favorite ways to use wood slabs and pieces in wedding decor, compiled by the owner of De Luxe Banquet Hall, a popular wedding venue in Los Angeles.
There are so many creative things you can do with wood slab placemats, since they go perfectly with so many colors and textures. Gold, light blue, red, white, green—even jewel tones like teal and hot pink. Wood slab placemats are also very complimentary to both antique-style dishes and tableware and more modern styles.
One of the most popular things to do with wooden slabs is to turn them into cute chalkboard signs with lovely lettering. We all know that weddings require quite a few signs, from “unplugged wedding” to signature cocktail displays to simple welcome signs. Wooden slabs make the perfect platform for any kind of sign you’ll need.
Put a few wooden slabs together to create an adorable dessert tier! As mentioned before, wood compliments colors of all kinds, so your cookies, cupcakes, donuts, and any other dessert will look picture-perfect against it.
“Mr.” and “Mrs.” Signs
The possibilities are endless when you pair wooden slabs with calligraphy. “Mr.” and “Mrs.” signs like these are gorgeous, practical, and they make excellent keepsakes for the newlyweds. They also make great props for wedding portraits!
Tea Light Holders
Wooden “candlesticks” are incredibly cozy and romantic. Whether they are placed on tables, used to line the room, or part of the ceremony, wooden candlesticks like these will create a magical atmosphere.
Centerpieces, Centerpieces, Centerpieces!
If wooden slabs have a signature use, it’s definitely centerpieces. Why? Because wooden slabs allow for a lot of variety and creativity. No matter what your wedding theme or style is, you’ll be able to use wood slabs to match it. They are incredibly compatible to both classic and modern aesthetics, and once again, wood goes hand-in-hand with many color, texture, and floral combinations.
Large wooden slices make outstanding wedding guestbooks. They’re sweet and organic (like your marriage, right?), there’s plenty of room for guests to write, and afterwards, they make a warm piece of decor for your home to always remind you of your wedding day.
Log Candle Holders
For a piece of wooden decor that always gets a lot of attention, consider log candle holders. They are unique and oh-so-romantic, creating a peaceful, lovely ambience that’s simply perfect for a wedding. We offer a log tea light holder that will add a lot of beauty to your decor.
Another area that wood slices work well is table numbers. They are practical and attractive—and once again, they offer a lot of room for variety.
Wedding Cake Display
Whether you use a thick wooden slab or a thinner one, they make wonderful displays for the wedding cake. Your once-in-a-lifetime cake deserves a beautiful platform, and a wooden slab will truly make it stand out in a memorable way.
