A cabin provides unique and flexible ways of setting up the decor for a wedding ceremony or reception. On one hand, the inside is home-like and inviting which gives way to bringing aspects of what you love in your daily life into your wedding theme setup. On the other, cabins are also different from most people’s homes and this brings in the element of unique. We have a few ideas to get you started if you are having your wedding at a cabin.
Cabin Setup Ideas for Weddings
1- Get Inspired by the Locale
As a starter, it is probably a time saving idea to look around the wedding cabin, and see what elements constitute its locale. Besides gaining inspiration, you are extending the indoors into the outdoors and ultimately creating a beautiful grandeur setup. What trees are growing outside the cabin? Any attractive cones or twigs that can be brought to the table, literally? What shades of colours surround the cabin? Water scenery? The sky is the limit.
2- Utilize Centre Points
The cabin usually has attractive centre points that you can use in building up your decor and expressing your theme. One such example is a fireplace and its mantlepiece. In the photo above, comfy ottomans surround the fireplace in a nice break from the rest of the wedding decor that is populated with seating tables and bar high tables. These could be great for photo shoots, drinking chats, resting area, or just the look. Other centre points include historic structural features, door frames, stages, and the like.
3- Bring Your Props
As mentioned above, due to the home-like style of a cabin, unlike many other wedding venues with strict look and decor, you have the freedom to bring in suitable props without risking cluttering the wedding theme. In this winter wedding, the tree stumps with candles on top are an inspiration of the season and the surrounding area. Blankets on the side table also reflected the cold and brought in thoughts of warmth. The bride used the blankets in her outdoor photo shoots, too.
