With autumn hitting its stride, it's time to get our woodsy wonderland on. We've seen some gorgeous ways to use logs in weddings, like how Katie and her groom used a wooden frame sitting on a tall log to mark the end of their aisle (and don't you love the subtle heart carved toward the bottom?). So we've decided to round up MORE gorgeous ways to use logs in weddings — from fabulous decor to tasty treats! Let's feel the lumber love…

Ceremonial logs


Are We Having Fun Yet?

Joan and Tom's wedding included an old German tradition in their ceremony called The Sawing Of The Log. I think it does look like they're having fun!

A little chalkboard paint and your sliced log can ask your guests to sign the guestbook, point out the flavors of your cupcakes, or announce the photo booth is just ahead. See more guestbook alternatives like this guestbook tree over on our guestbook alternatives roundup.

Add your guests' signatures to the rings of your tree — this log AS a guestbook would be gorgeous to keep the woodsy love on your wall after your wedding.

Center-cut centerpieces


The "Did you Know?" Centerpieces

A log slice is a great platform for beautiful vignettes. Tribesmaid Katie Sue added candles and trivia for her guests to ponder at their tables. There's a ton of DIY inspiration from her wedding porn.

From Meghan & Anne's wedding


Meghan & Anne's gorgeous centerpieces also featured candles with bonus charming pine cones and smooth stones. Their log-cabin lesbian bagpipe-y wedding has lots of inspiration, and did I mention they were married in a log cabin!

Where to plant yourself



Show guests to their seat with these awesome DIY mossy log table numbers. Woodsy Wonderland factor is totally amped up with greenery goodness.

Want to eat logs?



Carve a log-shaped cake! This cake was featured over on Offbeat Home (with lots more lumber lovin') at a killer LumberJack and Jill anniversary party.

There are so many logs to love. The carved initials, the woodsy wonderland and mossy greens — from the gorgeous decor to the tasty treats, logs are awesome.
