    If I had to choose, I would definitely pick woodland!

    I love both, but love woodland just a bit more, so woodland

    Woodland for sure. We are getting married at a nature preserve because trees are so beautiful.

    Woodland is magical, but alas I live in North Florida (have you seen what passes as "woods" here? So waterfront it will be! Easier logistics too!

    This is a tough one, but I'm leaning more toward woodland.

    I love both but waterfront wins, as this is my venue!!!

    This one is a close call for me as I love both but as I love my greenery, trees, plants, etc. it is woodland for me.

    I would do the waterfront if it was in front of that water. We both love water. But we are doing both. Ours has trees and a river!

    The water...absolutely beautiful!

    Tough one! Woodland

    Trees would have been amazing, but they're part of the view of the waterfront. We're in NYC, and I didn't think a waterfront venue would be in our budget.

    We got SUPER lucky, and we have a beautiful Hudson River view.

    Wooded! Ours is going to be in a historic village with a gazebo and flowers. Trees would be nice too, but I love it all the same.

    Woodland. Although combined would be my vote! We鈥檙e getting married in a wooded area overlooking a lake. 鈽猴笍

    I'm more of a fan of the wooded backgrounds - but we're getting married at a golf course so there isn't much of either there.

    Waterfront for me, but I think woodlands are so pretty for pictures.

    I wouldn't go with either love the wood background but I can do without bugs and the same goes for the waterfront, I wouldn't mind taking pictures with both backgrounds
