Designing a rustic wedding is beautiful and can be very unique. There are many items that you could have in order to have the perfect rustic wedding. From wedding venues and decorations to crafty furniture pieces and the food, this is a small guide to help you design the perfect rustic wedding.
The venue could be anywhere, a winery, a farm or a forest area. There are so many different venues. Wherever your venue is, one great space to use for a ceremony, reception or a dancing area is a barn. A barn is a place where the opportunities are endless. Hanging lights from the ceiling will brighten the space as well as create character to your wedding.
The grand entrance is everything to a bride and well basically everyone at the wedding. You want to try to have something that is creative and still be giving that rustic feel. I found this amazing picture of wood doors that are opened and over the top is a wood sign that has a saying. Your guests will enter the ceremony area through there as well as the bride when she makes her grand entrance.
Another great piece that I believe would look beautiful in the ceremony area is these logs of wood with a candle or a jar of flowers on top of them. I feel like this is a simple touch but it ties together the outdoor rustic theme beautifully.
For the bouquet I would go with some baby breath and bright flowers to tie in with some wonderful colors. I think this bouquet is amazing and simply put together. Tying your bouquet with twine will sure to bring in the burlap and wood feel.
For the table settings and arrangements you could go with any color scheme you would like. I think by adding wood pieces as centerpieces are so creative and it ties in with the rustic feel. By adding flowers on top of the wood piece with a cute glass jar or vase is simply beautiful. Adding lights or candles to the centerpieces will help bring light to the table as well.
So the bar is a must for a wedding… obviously. You want to make sure to add the rustic feel to your bar as well. I found this cute bar set up online and I think that it is perfect. They have wood barrels as the base and piece of wood on top of the barrels. This is such an inexpensive way to create a beautiful furniture piece to use for a wedding. You can create this as a bar or a dessert table. You can also create your own unique style when displaying your items on the table by adding beautiful dishes and adding flowers.
Lastly, the cake. The cake is so important to display you want to be able for people to see and admire it. A great way to make a cake stand is to stack a bunch of wood boxes together and create a huge tear so that the cake can go on the top.
Happy Wednesday y’all!
