Swings: They’re not just for the playground. In fact, we’re seeing stylish swings popping up at more and more weddings these days. There’s something whimsical and romantic about hopping on a wooden swing with your fiancé, enjoying the breeze and a quiet moment together. And these swings are far beyond the rubber versions at the local park—these reception swings are usually wooden and are often decorated with greenery garlands and flowers to complement the rest of the wedding decor.
