what type of tree branches should i use for wedding?

by DIY wedding planner on September 27, 2012

I am looking at doing tree branch centerpieces for my wedding. I know i could use manzanita branches and purchase online but im wondering if i could use any from my own backyard? I live in michigan so i have many trees at my exposure excluding mazanita. I want to drape crystals and a few silk of real flowers. What do you suggest? I have birch,crab apple,maple,oak, and prob a few others. looking to DIY and save a few bucks by using what i already have-thanks

I like white birch

Fabulous idea! You could use a different type on each table. Just get them the day or two before the event so they are not too dry/brittle. Oh and rinse them off and dry them well so you don’t get the inadvertent bug!


Good luck!

I’m sure that would be ok.
