Dream wedding theme: country rustic
With over ¼ of new Wedding in a Teacup brides-to-be (hiya! Congratulations and thanks for joining us!), planning a rustic wedding with dreamy country vibes, we thought it was about time we dedicated a whole blog post to one of our - and clearly one of your - fave wedding themes!
From barns to village halls, at-home garden parties to lodge-style hotels, a rustic theme adds romance to all kinds of venues - especially those that are otherwise simple and relaxed. If you’re planning a rustic ‘do, be inspired by our handy how-to guide, and get ready to create your day, your way!
Say it with signs
Make it clear your wedding is not a formal affair right from the get-go, with laid-back signs pointing everyone (oh-so-subtly) in the right direction to all the fun! Whether you choose cream signage to blend in (like our wooden hanging sign), or go bold and old-school with chalkboard additions (this ‘pick a seat’ sign is continually one of our bestsellers!), cute notices add a rustic-look to any venue.
Nothing gives a homely vibe to a big day more than handmade touches. One easy way to do this is by creating your own favours - like jams or chutneys! These can be created in batches, a few months before the wedding and then made extra-special with personalised labels. We reckon that the lucky recipients will smile, remembering your day, as they spread your homemade tastiness on their toast!
A rustic wedding is all about simple - yet beautiful - decorations, incorporating natural materials such as twine, wood and brown card, so it’s no surprise that many couples choose to use our luggage tag guest book, complete with mini wooden pegs, during their big day! It can always be used as a seating plan as guests arrive and then the all-important guest book later. And as it’s a stylish homage to your ‘do, it can even be on-show at home, well into married life.
Rustic wedding decor and hessian are a match made in heaven, aren’t they?! Opt for table runners, napkins, seat covers and bunting - like ours (great for displaying where you’d like guests to leave their cards, gifts and er, cash… in a non-cheeky way!) in this farmers’ favourite material, for an effortlessly rustic look.
Country rustic weddings conjure up images of endless flowers - be that in the meadow next to your gorgeous venue, or displayed in jam jars on tables, window sills or around beams. To continue the bloomin’ lovely theme and make sure your guests remember your big day, give them dainty forget-me-not favours as a memento and let the love grow!
