Interesting Décor Ideas to Consider
When you have your mind set on a rural or rustic wedding, it can be a bit tricky to know how to pull the look off.
After all, most people nowadays live in the city or suburbs and want to incorporate the countryside or natural feel into their weddings. Without constant exposure to these environments, how do you know what belongs in your rustic theme?
So, if you are stuck on how to decorate your rustic or barn-based wedding, here are some tips that you can follow or use as a kick-off point. Enjoy!
Use Mason Jars
Mason jars are a classic rustic decor item that has an array of uses at a rustic wedding. Fill them with flowers and candles, or even use them as drinking glasses for a fun and unique touch. Or, why not fill them with string lights to add a safer element to the lighting; certainly something you will want if you are having your wedding in Hanbury Wedding Barns.
Why not go one step further, place a memento of the day in them, and give them to your guests as part of a gift bag?
Add String Lights
Having string lights is an excellent way to create a warm feel at your barn wedding venue. They can be strung from the rafters, wrapped around pillars or columns, or hung from trees or other natural elements to create a magical and romantic effect.
As before, they can be placed into mason jars, which can be used to add lighting to the tables. And, best of all, they are cheap!
Incorporate Natural Elements
One of the best things about a rustic barn wedding is the opportunity to incorporate natural elements into your decor. Consider using burlap table runners and wooden signs or incorporating natural foliage like ivy, ferns, or moss into your centerpieces. If you want to keep the natural elements you use as a memento, you can always purchase fake ivy and ferns, which can then be incorporated into a wedding album or box at a later date.
Create a DIY Photo Booth
A DIY photo booth is a fun and interactive way to add some personality to your wedding decor. Set up a backdrop using a vintage door, wooden pallets, or an old barn window. Add some props like cowboy hats, mustaches on sticks, or oversized sunglasses for guests to use while they snap photos.
Use Vintage Furniture
Vintage furniture pieces like wooden chairs, couches, and tables can add a charming and cozy touch to your wedding decor. Look for pieces with a distressed finish or natural woodgrain that will fit in with the rustic aesthetic. However, it may be better to rent these items, as a distressed leather sofa or chair set for a wedding reception venue is not going to come cheap!
A rustic wedding is nothing without wildflowers! Wildflowers like tulips, bluebells, and daffodils are a beautiful and inexpensive way to add some color and texture to your wedding decor. You can use them in your centerpieces, have wildflower bouquets, or even use them as part of your ceremony backdrop. They will add a touch of whimsy and natural beauty to your big day. Best of all, compared to other decorative flowers like roses, lilies, and carnations, wildflowers are extremely affordable!
