While all kinds of woodland creatures have become popular in wedding decor lately, we have a particular fondness for deer. It's a gorgeous animal that lends itself nicely to weddings. Graceful does and powerful bucks work well for any season and are a nice balance of rugged rustic and sweet vintage styles. You can use gilded deer figurines or antlers in your decor, and incorporate deer prints into your graphic design. Here are our favorite ways to get the look.

A huge buck sets the scene. Bonus points if you you can find a venue with a big deer already on the wall. Otherwise, start checking antique stores.
