6 Must Have Rustic Wedding Details

The Perfect Details for a Rustic Wedding

 Rustic Wedding Must Haves

Mason Jar Wine Glass

These toasting glasses are a cute spin on the mason jars you often see at rustic weddings. They are a much better fit with rustic décor than fancy champagne glasses and you can keep a lid on your drink!

Cedar Disks

Wood is often a highlighted detail in rustic themes. Cedar disks make a great base for centerpieces. I love to layer several on a table with different items.   Cedar disks will shed, so limit how much you move them around on table linens.

Wicker Baskets

Baskets are always handy at weddings. They can hold everything from programs to favors and more. Of course a wicker basket is perfect for a flower girl’s petals…but what about a wicker basket bouquet like this one from Melissa Timm Designs? I love using this idea for someone that is between the age of a flower girl and bridesmaid.  Photo by Star Noir Studio.

Burlap Ring Bearer Pillow

Burlap is commonly used in rustic weddings as table runners, so I love mixing in burlap differently. These little burlap ring bearer pillows are the perfect detail for a rustic barn wedding.

Chalkboards

What an easy way to direct guests, reserve tables for family and label your buffet choices.   You can purchase chalkboards, but I prefer a can of chalk paint and some creativity. I also recommend chalk ink pens over a stick of chalk any day.

 

Wooden Tags

These wooden tags are perfect for personalizing your wedding details. Some brides choose to leave them blank or use a sharpie to personalize them, but bonus points to the girls that get crafty with a wood burning tool. My favorite route is to use chalkboard paint and then a chalk ink pen to personalize each tag. This is an adorable way to make bridesmaid bouquets extra special.

Mason Jar Wedding Favors

Of course I think a mason jar wedding favor is a must have for a rustic wedding. Not only do we create them in our little shop, but I also had them at my own wedding. Great fillings for a the jars are honey, jam, or applebutter but I always love when a bride uses one of our DIY kits and makes something homemade. It truly gives it a personalized touch.Burlap Mason Jar Wedding Favors
