Manzanita branches are a beautiful and original way to add some ‘wow’ factor your wedding decor. These natural arrangements have a multitude of twisted branches giving them a miniature tree silhouette like appearance which makes them not only dramatic in appearance but also extremely versatile for wide variety of decorative uses. Today, we take a look at the many gorgeous ways you can use manzanita trees throughout a wedding.
The wonderful thing about Manzanita branches is they are very affordable and easy to DIY. You can purchase them in either their natural form (reddish timber look) or in a sandblasted variety (neutral driftwood appearance). Or, for a complete contrast, easily paint them to compliment your colour scheme.
Another great variety of branches, especially for eco-conscious brides is the artificial manzanita branch. Artificial branches work especially well for for large weddings, where consistency in the appearance of your centrepieces is important. It also means they are strong yet still lightweight, can be re-used, and of course get a big tick for being environmentally friendly.
