birch bark and beach themed wedding

Bark from birch trees has such a unique and distinctive pattern of black dashes  – I really wanted to play on that for today’s wedding inspiration board!

Birch bark and beach themed wedding inspiration board

The trick with a birch bark themed wedding is to not take it too literally. The only place in this inspiration board with actual birch bark patterns is on the paper straws.

Find other ways to mimic birch bark throughout your wedding day design. In this inspiration board I tried to pull that idea in with the love letter envelope liner in the picture of the invitation suite and with those unique reception chairs on the beach.
