If you love natural decor and are inspired by the outdoors, moss is a wonderfully versatile decoration to use throughout your wedding. Whether you want a lush, woodland look, or just want to mix a few green accents into your big day, there are several ways you can incorporate this natural piece into your arrangements!
Moss Place Settings
Use sheet moss to create place settings. Surround them with birch branch candle holders and other natural accents for a simple garden party look with a distinctive setting.

Moss Lamp Shades
Attach loose, preserved moss to lampshades or even bird cages for a display that mixes both natural and industrial elements. Secure the moss easily using spray adhesive. This is also a great way to upcycle vintage fixtures or flea market finds!

If you’re not too keen on putting moss on your cake, you can use sheet moss to cover the table. Use grapevines around the base of the cake to continue the natural woodland look, and embellish your cake with green hydrangeas to set off the mossy surroundings.

If you want to go all out with your greenery, mix reindeer moss in with sprawling plants and flowers. Use natural fern and boxwood accents to give your centerpiece volume. To create a crisp terrarium look, use glass bottles and bell jars to blend in with the foliage.

For a simple, yet personal focal point, cover wood letters with moss for your own monogram. Use sheet moss and apply it to the wood with double sided tape for a clean-cut display. Tie a thick silk ribbon or burlap bow around the top and this accessory doubles as a wonderful wreath alternative for your front door.

Moss Table Numbers
One clever way to use moss balls is to turn them into adorable little table numbers. Affix metal numbers to these spheres for a sleek, modern look, or cut numbers out of birch bark for a more natural appearance. You can also cover wood numbers with loose moss, or create an applique on a chalkboard or framed glass by cutting out sheet moss.
Moss Escort Card Holder
Create a unique escort card holder by turning an old frame into an dense, moss covered panel. Use light green reindeer moss and dark green moss to make a natural looking display, or—if you’re feeling really crafty—consider using the light moss to construct your initials in the middle, and surround it with the darker colored moss. Use keys and hang tags for escort cards to complete the look.

Moss Aisle Décor
Add subtle greenery to your wedding aisle using moss baskets. Hang these cone shaped baskets from stanchions lining your aisle. To make your own cones, apply dried moss to paper mache cones using spray adhesive. To create the hanger, use moss wire, or jute twine. Fill the baskets with bright flowers to make your aisle look like a sprightly garden.
