Wooden Place Cards – Rustic Wedding

This week our wedding decoration of the week is perfect for a rustic wedding. Our blank wooden gift tags make lovely wooden place cards. The small wooden tags can be written on and we think they look lovely with guests names on and used as name cards. Lay one of these wooden name tags on the napkin of each guest or leaning against their wine glass to mark their seat.

Slate Wedding Decorations – Table Numbers, Signs, Place Cards & More

Here at The Wedding of my Dreams we love including natural decorations for a rustic or country style wedding. Slate wedding decorations can look simple and stylish, especially if you are including soft grey tones elsewhere in your wedding styling.

You could use slate tiles as place mats for each guest or to sit your wedding centrepieces on adding a rustic touch to your tables. Smaller slate tags can be used to make slate table numbers or place cards and larger ones for signs around your venue – all you need is a piece of chalk!

We have been pinning a few of our favourite slate wedding decorations and ideas on our latest pinterest board. Check out our slate wedding decorations board here.

A number of the items are available to buy online from our online shop

Chalkbaord Wedding Signs & More @ The National Wedding Show

You may or may not know that Karen and Gemma Morgan of The Wedding of my Dreams also run Passion for Flowers, their wedding florist business based in the West Midlands. Passion for Flowers exhibited last weekend at The National Wedding Show Birmingham and of course finished off their stand with chalkboard wedding signs, bronze tea light holders and many more lovely decorations from The Wedding of my Dreams.

Chalkboard Wedding Signs

Our chalkboard wedding signs were a big hit with couples at the wedding show, we used them as wedding chair signs on either side of the table. The here comes the bride chalkboard sign would usually be held by a young bridesmaid or page boy as they walk down the aisle. The Mr and Mrs chalkboard signs could be hung on the bride and groom’s chairs.

Our new welcome to the wedding chalkboard sign was admired by all.


Advice For The Bride And Groom Coasters – Alternative Wedding Guest Books

The rustic wooden table was set for 6, at each place setting our advice for the bride and groom coasters were displayed. Guests can fill these in leaving their comments for the newly married couple, either provide pegs to hang these up on display around the venue or ask guests to post them into a wedding mailbox.

Bud Vase Name Card Holders – Just Like Salt Cellars

Our bud vase name card holders were at every place setting, holding lovely stationery from Tom Gautier. A tiny sprig of wax flower was placed in the bud vase, we love the idea of these being given as a wedding favour for guests to take home with them.

Bronze Tea Light Holders & Vases

The table scape used a mix of bronze vases in assorted sizes as well as crystal glass vases which had been sourced from flea markets and vintage shops.  Dotted around the florals were our bronze ribbed tea light holders and our chunky bronze vases were used in the mix on the table.


Confetti Bags – Sprinkle Me & Throw Me

On the back wall of the stand Passion for flowers styled wooden crates with various details and decorations. A small vintage suitcase held our cotton confetti bags, both the throw me and sprinkle me designs were admired by all.


Rustic Bark Tree Slices

For a more rustic setting Passion for Flowers used our bark tree slices with a grouping of green bud vases and a crystal decanter. This oozes rustic elegance.
