For couples who seek a laid-back, country-style wedding, rustic decor is a timeless way to set the perfect atmosphere. With charming, handcrafted pieces, a rustic wedding motif can be achieved while affording the special occasion a unique, one-of-a-kind touch. Whether you’re looking for decorations to turn a barn into a beautiful space or are just trying to give your reception hall a rustic vibe, here are some of the best handcrafted rustic decor ideas for your special day.
Lanterns with a Flare
Lanterns come in all shapes and sizes and are an easy addition to any rustic reception space. Place them in various locations throughout the room for sweet and subtle illumination, and paint the outsides with whatever color scheme suits your occasion. Lanterns help complete the rustic atmosphere, especially when placed on tables at the head table or guest tables.
Jute string, ribbon, or twine can be hung from tree branches, church pews, or around the reception space. Hang small decorations like flowers, birdcages, or old windows for a cozy, country look. Adding low-hanging mason jars with fairy lights can also evoke a beautiful, romantic feel. These simple, handcrafted decorations will make any space feel personalized and special.
For the tables at the reception, keep it simple yet classic with handcrafted arrangements. Display jars full of wildflowers or greenery and mix and match tin plates with burlap napkins and mason jars for a rustic look. For something a little more special, put together bundles of wheat or eyelet ribbon with long cylinders of candles for a creative tablescape, complete with some unique handcrafted touches!
As for the centerpieces, opt for something handcrafted and full of rustic charm. Incorporate items such as baskets filled with wildflowers, distressed wood boxes with fresh greenery, or branches and pinecones with candles. You can even give guests a sweet treat to take home like a glass jar with lavender or a miniature pail of mini-cakes. By keeping your centerpieces neutral and adding special rustic touches, you can create a dreamy, special setting that’s fit for a country-chic wedding.
Rustic decor provides a beautiful atmosphere for any wedding and with these handcrafted decorations, you and your partner can easily achieve a timeless, country-chic look. Move away from the conventional and go for unique decoration pieces to make your big day that much more special.
