Few things say “woodland wedding” more than acorns. These seeds of the oak tree are an important part of forest ecology and could play a starring role in your wedding day vision. Thought to represent strength, longevity, independence, and potential, acorns symbolize many qualities we hope for in a marriage and can add special meaning to décor and accessories. Folklore from around the globe says this “fruit of the unenclosed land” is a sacred object useful for tasks from warding off lightning to predicting your future love life. Just as useful, they’re (quite literally) tough nuts to crack and will hold up all day whether atop a cake or slipped into a bouquet. After, scatter these nutty treats outdoors so woodland creatures like birds and squirrels can celebrate, too.
