Planning a summer , but looking for a way to beat the heat? Then a Woodland Wedding might be just the right fit! There are few ceremony locations more beautiful than a lush wooded clearing with beams of sunlight poking through. Another benefit of choosing this theme during hotter seasons is that a lot of the main floral components used in the Woodland Wedding look tend to be ultra-hardy. One in particular–that we’ll be highlighting today–is Moss! Scroll on for a breakdown of the different varieties of moss, along with some inspiration photos for how they can be used…


Sheet Moss – Probably the most commonly used moss type, this variety comes out of the box in–as the name suggests–sheets. Available in Dried or Fresh types, both are very easy to work with!

Mood Moss – This type of moss comes in clump-like pieces which are thicker than Sheet Moss, which makes it perfect for adding some height and dimension to your Woodland decor. Also available in Dried or Fresh varieties!

Spanish Moss – Has long strands that can easily be draped over a wall or door to create a textured surface (like the escort card photo below) or gently pulled apart into smaller tendrils (like the hanging flower arrangement below). Its neutral, sage green color makes it the perfect addition to just about any color palette! Simply pull it out of the box and lightly “fluff it up” before working it into your decor.

Reindeer Moss – Offered in three different colors–Natural, BasilSpring Green–and an Assorted Pack of all three shades. This specific variety comes in clusters and have a sponge-y texture. Reindeer Moss dries really well and can be used over and over!

Peel N Stick Moss – This dried, adhesive variety is available in Mats or Rolls, depending on how many items you need to decorate! It also has graph-paper-like grid lines on the back to help you measure and cut straight lines–which is a good thing, because the adhesive is very strong!

Mountain Moss – This dried type of moss differs from Sheet Moss in its color, the size and shape of its pieces, and the size of the moss fibers (which are larger than that of Sheet Moss).
