Charming Details For Your Rustic Wedding
Rustic weddings are definitely having a moment. And whether you’re getting married on a farm in the country or in a hotel ballroom in the city, adding rustic details to your wedding will give it an effortlessly chic vibe. We’ve rounded up 20 of our favorite rustic details that you can easily incorporate into your wedding decor.
Adding delicate flowers to a pair of (ethically sourced, of course!) antlers makes for a perfectly rustic wedding centerpiece, photobooth prop or ceremony arch addition.
Wood Table Numbers
Simple, polished wooden blocks are elegant options for reception table numbers.
If you’re going have a rustic wedding, it’s practically law that you’ve got to incorporate burlap into your decor somehow. A simple table runner like this one adds texture to the tables and contrast to the white dinnerware.
Log Cake Stand
Instead of a glam metallic cake stand, try a sanded tree log for your rustic wedding. The round shape is a natural fit — in more ways than one!
Salvage a piece of wood and grab your bestie with the on point penmanship for a perfectly imperfect menu board for your reception.
Baby’s Breath Centerpieces
Baby’s breath is adorable, affordable and impactful. Gather bunches in rustic containers like this burlap-and-lace covered one for simple, chic centerpieces.
Reclaimed Wood Guest Book
This reclaimed wood guest “book” doubles as rustic decor for the reception and a special memento for you.
Personalized Mason Jars
Mason jars are a rustic wedding staple — for good reason! They’re affordable, fun and add an immediate easiness to any party. We like that these have the convenient and cute chalkboard name plate for easy drink detection.
We’re pretty sure we have Beyonce to thank for single-handedly bringing back lemonade this season. For a rustic and refreshing touch to your ceremony, set up a simple lemonade stand where guests can help themselves before you exchange your vows.
Wine Crate Bar Set Up
Wine crates have an inherently rustic vibe and are so useful. Try setting up a few in different configurations around your bar to display glassware, bottles and menus.
Ladder Photo Display
We love the idea of displaying personal photos at a reception; it’s a great conversation starter and gives those guests you may not know as well a glimpse into your life! Using two ladders and a couple of wooden boards is an easy, rustic way of showing off those childhood photos.
Kraft Paper Invitations
When it comes to crafting the perfect rustic invitation, we suggest using kraft paper. It’ll set the tone of your easy-going wedding right from the start.
Sunflowers are a sweet, cheerful way to add a pop of color to your rustic wedding. They’ll no doubt also remind your guests of their childhood summers spent outside.
Hay Bale Seating
If you’re looking for a casual, down-home seating option, we love the idea of throwing vintage blankets over hay bales. It adds character and encourages mingling!
Twinkle Light Arrangements
For a cozy, candlelit ambiance, string twinkle lights through large tree branches and tie them to poles or put them in large, galvanized steel pots.
Lace and Burlap Cake Topper
Small lace details, like the bows on this cake topper bunting, add a dash of femininity to a rustic wedding.
Grab a wheelbarrow — the more broken in, the better — fill it with ice and keep your beverages cool all night long.
What does every wedding need more of? More cowbell, of course! This one would be cute tied around a branch close to the dance floor so your guests can ring it all night long.
Wine Barrel Ceremony Decor
Wine barrels are inherently classy in a rustic way; place two on either side of the aisle for flower and wedding programs.
Cowboy Boots and Blue Jeans
If you’re really committed to the rustic theme, see if your bridal party is up for donning some down-home garb. Cowboy boots for the ladies and blue jeans for the guys will keep them comfortable — and make your guests smile.
