The birch tree is an important symbol if you are planning a cultural wedding. For example in Celtic culture the birch tree is the symbol of renewal, growth, stability, adaptability which in fact are the characteristics of a wedding. As the birch is highly adaptive and able to sustain harsh conditions, also the bride and the groom should have the power to resist during the trials and should adapt to any situation. The birch tree can take roots in any landscape, it is a metaphor for our lives that we should also adapt and take ‘’roots’’ anywhere. The birch is the symbol of renewal, stability and structure. We tend to give much more attention to symbols, to the meaning of different elements on the wedding day. Maybe because we want to communicate something through the details we use in the wedding decorations, on the wedding cake. The birch is a perfect igniter, it starts to burn even when is damp, as a symbol if you want to use on the wedding day, the bride should also follow the groom with a fire in her heart all her life. Mystical or not the birch tree will make a great statement if you use it as a symbol on your wedding day, including choosing a birch tree wedding cake.
