If you are planning a rustic ,woodland, boho or just a backyard wedding or just want to add some rustic touches to the décor, I have a brilliant idea for you – go for birch details! Birch is perhaps the most popular type of wood used at weddings due to its neutral color and lots of ways to use the soft bark, it looks very cute and chic and such decor matches any season. I’ve prepared a whole bunch of ideas to use birch bark, logs and branches at your wedding and to use and make items inspired by them. Wanna see? Let’s get started!
Whatever flowers you choose for your floral centerpiece, you can always make it a bit more rustic with birch bark: just wrap your vases with it, and voila! Another idea is to use birch branches for making a centerpiece: put them into a tall vase and then add blooms and greenery on top. You can also do the same without any vases but you still need to fasten the birch branches somehow, use wire or twine for that, make sure to secure them well. Good news is most of such simple rustic centerpieces are absolutely DIYable, so you won’t need to waste a lot of money – just make them yourself.
One more creative idea is making birch bark pockets and inserting blooms inside each one, such a combo looks unusual, the only tirck here is how to hide mini glass tubes inside the pockets, without them the flowers will wither. Birch logs, slices and branches can be used as candle holders – just cut out some space inside. If you want to make them super safe, put the birch candle holders into glasses because we all know that wood can heat and burn.

Other Décor Ideas
Birch bark can be used in many other ways, for example, you can cover your wedding ring box with it and put moss inside, or use a birch slice instead of a box. Make napkin rings and bouquets wraps of birch bark and add pearl pins for an elegant touch. Create a wedding altar of birch logs covered with moss and holding candles, and cover the lamps with birch bark. Opt for wedding invitations styled as birch bark or actually made of it and add twine and green leaves for a wow effect.

Top such a cake with blooms, edible birds, nests, berries and stuff like that to achieve that rustic feel on your dessert table. Make corresponding cupcakes and cookies and voila!
