Rustic weddings are a favorite among couples thanks to the cozy, intimate feel -- and what better place to celebrate your rustic-themed big day than the woods? And you don't have to rough it! We love elegant candles, eco-friendly wooden details, cafe lights strung from branch to branch, and Mother Nature as your perfect backdrop. Here are some of our favorite ways to decorate your wedding in the woods.
