Ready to get started?

Ceremony Space Décor

To add a rustic feel to the ceremony space, just line up the aisle with buckets with fresh flowers of your choice, we recommend wildflowers or baby’s breath for an elegant touch. You can also hang these buckets to the chairs if they aren’t big. Another idea is to decorate the chairs with burlap and lace bows with baby’s breath. Put wooden signs here and there – just DIY them and voila!

Florals

If we speak about florals, the point isn’t the florals themselves but arranging them and containers and vases you choose. These can be mason jars wrapped with burlap, twine and lace, buckets, wooden boxes, watering cans, galvanized tubs and baskets. Baby’s breath and wildflowers are a great option for a rustic affair but of course you can go for roses and other blooms like that, the flowers should just correspond your wedding colors and shades. As for your bouquets, wrap them in burlap and lace and add pearl pins for a cute look.

Wedding Food

Wedding food, especially cakes and cupcakes are another cool idea to add a rustic feel to your wedding. As for the cake, naked ones are the most gorgeous, they will make your mouth water when you just look at it! Top it with blooms and fresh berries and sugar powder for a cute look. It can also be just a white cake decorated with burlap and lace, topped with baby’s breath and served on a wooden slice. Serve cupcakes on cool bucket and bath stands decorated with flowers for a softer look, it will be very original!

Other Ideas

Use rustic materials and pieces for décor: rough wood, old windows, buckets and baskets, serve food on wine barrels and wooden trays. Offer your guests see wedding favors and add wooden signs to chairs instead of ribbons or flowers. Don’t be afraid to DIY some decor if you have time for that because this way you’ll get a personalized piece.
