Creative Centerpiece

Its door easily unlatches so you can place a small votive inside, or opt to leave it empty for a more simple aesthetic. Thanks to its minimalist design, you can dress it up or down depending on your style. Stick with a single candle for a soft glow or surround it with greenery and a wood-framed mirror for a more luxurious feel.

A Touch of Burlap

Too much burlap can look tacky; however, when done right the fabric can add a stylish touch to a rustic wedding. You can use it in bridal bouquets and wrapped around decorative containers, but one of our favorite ways is to bring it to your sweethearts' table—and not as a runner. Simply drape your pieces over each chair and use these wedding banners to keep them in place. Featuring a neutral color palette they won't clash with your other elements while the "Mrs. always right" shows off your humorous side. Just make sure your hubby sits on the appropriate side to make it work. ($25.95; beau-coup.com)
