Over 30 Beautiful Ways to Use Basket Wedding Decor


In the past, baskets at weddings were mainly allocated to the flower girls or, resigned to the bathroom, but lately we’re seeing them getting a whole new lease of life throughout the wedding day! Whether it’s greeting guests filled to the brim with florals at your venue entrance, lining the aisles for your ceremony, a neutral piece of decor dotted throughtout the day or, making an impressive visial impact your reception, we’re obsessed with the wicker basket wedding decor trend that’s emerging.

Not only does wedding basket decor bring a dose of charm and whimsy to your wedding design, they are easily moved from ceremony to reception so make a great option to repurpose your gorgeous wedding flowers and maximise their use. Not only that, they are also a great eco-friendly wedding decor item as opposed to plastics and other non-biodegradable materials. Plus, baskets can be reused and loved at home after the big day, so including them in your wedding is truly a win-win!

So, whether you’re a boho bride, a rustic wedding couple, or love the grandmillenial, cottagecore and coastal grandma trends, you’re going to love these beautiful basket wedding decor and styling ideas…
