How To Create This Rustic Table Plan At Your Wedding

Designing the perfect look for your rustic wedding takes more than finding the perfect wedding venue. Whether you’ve opted for a country barn or an English garden-inspired venue, it’s the decor that creates your rustic theme. Today we’re talking about a rustic table plan that will seriously set the scene for your special day…

One of the things we love most about rustic weddings is the fact it’s such an effortless yet beautiful theme. It’s perfect for those couples who want an organic, country feel to their day. It’s the little details that count, which is why this rustic plan table is made for a rustic affair!

Fleur Couture created this gorgeous rustic table plan using items from The Wedding of My Dreams shop.

What You’ll Need For Your Rustic Table Plan

How To Create Your Rustic Table Plan

This rustic table plan looks fab if you’ve got a variety of different size wooden crates. Fleur Couture placed the crates on the sides and layered them on top of one another as if to create shelving for the plant buckets and other props.

Place a couple of milk churns on top of the crates and fill with blooms for the ‘wow’ factor. Choosing flowers that match your wedding bouquet will look beautifully coordinated. Wild, natural flowers look particularly wonderful with this set-up as it simply adds another rustic element.

Use props such as a ‘LOVE’ light up sign to add a touch of ambience to your table plan. You could make it really personal by adding frames full of your favourite photographs and placing them in the shelving part of the crate. The possibilities are endless when it comes to decorating the wooden crates!

Rest the wooden table plan from The Wedding of My Dreams against the crates and fill the mini silver buckets with more pretty posies. Once you’ve done this, all you need to do is the finishing touches. Tie the brown luggage tags to the silver buckets and write down the seating arrangements so it’s clear where your guests need to sit.

This is such a simple yet effect rustic table plan and it looks beautiful in any area of your venue. Set up in the corner of your reception room so guests can easily see where they’re seating. You could even place it on a table to make it more of a ‘focal point’ of your reception room. The mixture of the wooden crates and colourful flowers will really help to create that beautiful rustic feel to your wedding venue. Keep the style throughout your wedding day and use crates or milk churns filled with blooms as your table centrepieces.

Chic Lilac And Grey Wedding Theme Inspiration

lilac and grey wedding decorations and ideas

The Bride and Groom

A wedding gown with watercolour grey or lilac hues will look stunning and is perfect if you want something a little different to the traditional wedding dress. But if you’ve always dreamt of a white gown, a pair of sparkly silver shoes peeping out from your dress will look gorgeous. Accessorise with simple silver jewellery that has delicate lilac accents. A pale lilac sash can add a pop of colour to your wedding gown while giving a subtle nod to your chosen theme.
Fortunately for your man, this is a colour scheme that looks great on grooms. A pale grey suit is always on trend and looks fab with a lavender buttonhole.

The Bridesmaids

There are tons of options when it comes to dressing your girls. Mix and match with lilac and grey dresses – there may be some maids that suit each colour better. Or you could go for an ombré effect with different shades of grey or lilac. Either way, your bridesmaids will look beautiful with bouquets rich in green foliage, possibly tied with a silk lilac ribbon.

The Flowers

When it comes to your wedding bouquet, natural and wild inspired flowers work best. We’re talking sprigs of lavender, eucalyptus and lots of greenery. Pale succulents also look fab and add a touch of modern elegance. Give your bouquet a lift by mixing white roses or tulips into the bouquet.

The Table Décor

You can get seriously creative with your table décor for a lilac and grey wedding theme. Silver table runners will add a little sparkle –and what girl doesn’t love sparkle?! Silvery mercury candle holders will look fab dotted around your reception tables, and some tea lights will give a welcoming glow. You could even cluster flowers together in silver buckets, with the table number written on purple on them. This will be a lovely floral touch to your tables. A simple sprig of lavender on each place setting will not only fit in flawlessly with your theme, it can double up as wedding favours for your guests.

The Wedding Stationery

Your wedding initiations are the first glimpse your guests will get of your big day, so make sure it counts. I love the idea of watercolour inspired invitations for a really delicate look. Be sure to keep the same stationery design throughout your wedding day so that it looks completely seamless, and ties in together.

The Wedding Cake

A simple, delicate wedding cake is best when it comes to a lilac and grey wedding theme. Pale grey or even metallic silver icing will look super chic with a lilac cake topper. Display on a grand cake stand and a silver table runner for maximum effect.

Beautiful Hanging Vases For Summer Weddings

Summer is well and truly here which means wedding season is in full swing. So we’re looking at some of our favourite Summer wedding decorations today – hanging vases.

Ideas For Hanging Vases

Hanging vases full of floral delights bring in a lot of colour and personality to your wedding venue. If your wedding is based outdoors, there are tons of different ways you can incorporate this idea into your décor.

Even if your ceremony and reception is based indoors, it’s likely that guests will wander out into the sunshine in the evening. Dress up the outside by hanging a handful of vases from the branches of trees. It’s important to make sure the outside of your venue looks beautiful, even if the majority is based inside.

If you’re lucky enough to be having your wedding breakfast outside, use hanging vases as an elevated table centrepiece. Base your tables under trees if possible and attach the vases full of flowers to the trees. This is such a unique, unusual idea that your guests won’t have seen before and it’s a great way to get everyone talking. Plus, if the tables are under the trees your guests will be able to stay cool in the shade during the scorching heat of the day.

Another way of using hanging vases at your Summer wedding day is by using them as a backdrop. They’re an incredible backdrop for your wedding photographs. Why not hang them behind your wedding cake or dessert table? Match the colours of your chosen flowers to your wedding cake and tasty treats for a look that is completely coordinated.

Mix and match with hanging vases containing tea lights too. The variety of flowers and candles will look beautiful and glowing in the evening. If you wanted a style that looks natural and a little mismatched, shake things up by using a mixture of jam jars, mason jars and vases. You can turn jam jars, bottles and vases into hanging vases yourself by tying twine or wire around the lip at the top of the jam jar and creating a loop to hang from – see our blog post .

You can get really creative when it comes to dressing your vases. Lace ribbon looks beautiful wrapped around a vase and is perfect if you want an elegant wedding style. Hessian ribbon or natural twine is a great choice if you’re having a rustic or woodland wedding, and will fit in beautifully with your surroundings. Inject a splash of colour by using colourful ribbon to hang the vases from the trees with. It’s so easy to blend the vases into your colour scheme with the colour of the ribbon.

Hanging vases look fab if they’re hung from a variety of different heights, and it makes the décor look absolutely effortless. If you’ve not got many trees surrounding your wedding venue, fear not! Source as many shepherd hooks as you need, and plant them into the ground instead. Alternatively, add a few nails to a plank of wood that can be hung up somewhere – that would look gorgeous behind your dessert table.

The flowers you choose for the vases are incredibly important. Natural, wild flowers are perfect if you’ve opted for a country or English garden theme. However, roses or peonies are beautiful for an elegant affair. Be sure that they tie in with the rest of your wedding flowers, even if you are doing this bit yourself, as you don’t want them to be too contrasting.



How to decorate your wedding venue entrance

The moment your guests walk through your wedding venue entrance is the first impression they’ll get of your special day, so you want to make sure it’s amazing. Today we’re talking about how to decorate your wedding venue entrance so that it suits your wedding style and looks spectacular.

Super Sweet Signs

Using personalised signs is a great way to decorate your wedding venue entrance. Signs looks fab if they ties in with your wedding stationery too. Display on a stand that suits your wedding theme, for instance if you’re planning a rustic affair, a wooden easel will look perfect. Alternatively, if your wedding theme is all about glamour then a golden frame is a gorgeous choice!

Fabulous Flowers

Adorn your wedding venue entrance with flowers for a look that is really beautiful. You can go down any route with flowers; elegant and minimalist, or colourful and creative – the choice is yours! I love the idea of creating an archway on the doorway of your wedding venue using lots of greenery and foliage. This is a seriously romantic look that will make walking through your wedding venue entrance extra special. Floral decorations are particularly suited to Spring or Summer weddings. If you’re having an Autumn or Winter wedding, consider using pinecones, berries and roses.

Rustic Wooden Crates

We are huge fans of wooden crates at The Wedding of my Dreams, so it’s no wonder we’re including them in our venue décor ideas. This is the perfect idea if you’re having a rustic, woodland or outdoor wedding. Place a few crates outside of your wedding venue entrance – whether that’s a tipi, marquee or building. Decorate your crates with milk churns brimming with beautiful blooms.You could even add some cute bunting!

Candles or Lanterns

Possibly one of the most romantic ways to decorate your wedding venue entrance, candles will create a beautiful glow as your guests arrive at your big day. Fill mason jars with little tea lights for a simple style, or add large pillar candles to some metallic lanterns for maximum impact. Candles or lanterns are such a simple yet effective decoration, that will definitely make your entrance look beautiful.
