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 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.257c8f2856c30f2fab05150776bd8ff9

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.

These are just some great finds that I found on creating a rustic wedding! There are so so many great ideas on The Knot regarding rustic weddings as well as the blog Style Me Pretty.

Happy Wednesday y’all!

Beautiful Tahoe Wedding Venue

Today I explored The Tahoe Tree Company in Tahoe City California. The Tahoe Tree Company started in 1954 as a small nursery. It has expanded greatly into a bigger nursery with many Tahoe-Tree-Company-Wedding-Tahoe-City-CA-01.1413256963more plants and flowers. It has recently has become one of the favorite wedding venues in the Tahoe area.  It has a beautiful forest feel, surrounded by trees and so much greenery. This outdoor venue is one of a kind. They have many different levels with in their venue. A lower area for the ceremony, another lower area for dinner or dancing, a upper deckIMG_0660 2 for cocktails and room for a bar. Also, they have a great indoor lodge area with huge doors that open up to the upper deck so guests can go inside and outside if they choose to do. They have beautiful lights that are swung from tree to tree on the lower level to light up the beautiful Tahoe sky.

As an employee for an event planning business in Tahoe City, this venue is one of our most used. My boss is the wedding planner for this venue so she handles the weddings held at the Tahoe Tree Company. It is great to be a wedding planner for a IMG_0662 2venue like this because you have become so familiar with it. You know the dos and donts and what works and what doesn’t. This way clients are much more willing to trust your opinions and trust that you know what areas are best for each part of the wedding.

Wedding websites like The Knot and Wedding Spot have acknowledged the Tahoe Tree Company as a wonderful wedding venue and many couples and guests have wrote great reviews. Tahoe Tree Company is such a beautiful venue to choose for a wedding. It will absolutely make someones special day amazing.

I suggest that if you are just in the area to stop by and check out the grounds. Whether it be just to look at the nursery, look at the garden shop or look for a wedding venue its definitely worth the stop!

Have a beautiful day and don’t forget to follow me on Pinterest!
