Inspiration for a Rustic Wedding

Rustic Wedding Ideas

A rustic wedding is one of our favourites – especially if your wedding is taking place in a countryside setting.

So if you’re hoping to add some vintage charm to your wedding, you’re in the right place. We’ve put together our favourite rustic wedding ideas, taken from our collection of Vintage Affair wedding supplies.

Read on for invitations, decorations and special finishing touches for the big day!

Save the dates & invitations

Save the date cards and invitations are the perfect way to hint at your wedding theme without giving too much away! We love these stunning brown kraft save the date cards – this material looks super rustic and we’d recommend writing on them with a fountain pen for a real vintage feel.

Rustic wedding decorations

Now for the exciting part – choosing your decorations! The beauty of a rustic wedding theme is its simplicity – stick to a simple colour scheme of browns, whites and greens and use hessian to add texture. Here are some of our favourite rustic decorating ideas!

Table décor

Using old wine bottles as decorations is the epitome of rustic. We love the idea of making wine bottle table numbers with these hessian numbers and a bunch of roses. So easy and so beautiful!

This wooden wedding confetti would look stunning scattered across the tables. If you’re having a country wedding, this is a lovely way to bring the outdoors indoors.

Photo booth

No wedding in 2017 is complete without a photo booth! And there are lots of lovely ways to give your photo booth a rustic feel (before you start taking some silly snaps!) We love this chalkboard photo booth sign – it’s the perfect way to point your guests in the right direction.

Candy buffet

Lots of couples choose to have a candy buffet cart at their wedding. And for a rustic wedding theme, you could set it up like an old fashioned sweet shop! Fill each jar with old fashioned sweets and decorate them with these chalkboard sticker labels.

This shabby chic hessian wedding cards sack is a lovely way to collect all the cards and gifts from your guests. And it makes it easy to transport everything home!

And last but not least, how about making a fingerprint tree to keep as a memento of your lovely rustic wedding day? Simply put this fingerprint tree out at your reception (along with an ink pad) and ask all your guests to stamp their fingerprint at the end of a branch. You could even ask them to sign their name or write a small message. Then put it in a frame to display in your home as a memory of your special day!
