pine cone wedding deas

Mother Nature has done it again! With their untainted natural charm, pine cones take rustic loveliness to a whole new level. While we South Africans know pine cones as Christmas-time pretties, pine cones are generally associated with winter, evoking memories of snow-capped mountains, a fire crackling in the hearth and crisp foggy air.

Whether you’re getting married in the middle of a forest or in a contemporary glass cavern, you simply cannot go wrong with a pine cone. While you’d agree that they’re at their loveliest in natural form, pine cones can be sprayed, painted and decorated in a number of ways and colours. For instance, bling ’em up with glue and sequins or cover them in white paint for a crisp yet organic style wedding.

Here are a bushel of ideas – so let’s get down and creative:

  • Carry a bunch of pinecones as a rustic alternative to the normal floral wedding bouquet.
  • Slip your place cards between the little “leaves” of the pine cone for a lovely and simple place card holder.
  • Attach a piece of fishing line to each pine cone and suspend them from the ceiling to create magical floating décor pieces.
  • Fill a tall glass vase with pine cones for a simple and rustic yet highly elegant focal piece.
  • Decorate the wedding cake with pine cones and use baby pine cones for cupcakes.
  • Make your very own natural “bunting” by attaching or threading the pine cones onto a long length of string.
  • Hollow out the top section of the pine cone and place a candle in the hole for a bush-wacker style table adornment.
  • Incorporate mini pine cones into your jewellery and the groom’s boutonniere.
  • Instead of a ring cushion, tie your rings to a big chunky pine cone.
