Rustic Wedding Ideas ~ Tree Slices, Bark Vases, Hessian Runners {Real Wedding}

Jenny and Matt were married at Packington Moor, a beautiful rustic barn venue. We love how they used our wooden tree slices, bark vases, tea light holders and hessian runners and bunting to style their rustic wedding.

If you are having a barn wedding and looking for rustic wedding ideas see how Jenny and Matt used our decorations on their tables and around the room.

Cream Jugs for Bridesmaids Bouquets

To keep the bridesmaids bouquets as fresh as possible when they were not being held by the bridesmaids they were displayed in our distressed cream jugs. This created extra floral decorations which were used around the barn.

Flowers in wooden crates

At the entrance to the barn Jenny and Matt chose to have a stack of wooden crates filled with beautiful blooms. These crates look lovely here with hydrangeas, lisinathus, nigella and roses.

Top Table – Just Married Hessian Bunting

Along the top table were a mix of bark vases and jam jars decorated with hessian filled with pretty blooms. They were spread out along the full length of the top table on one of our hessian table runners with a lace overlay. In front of the top table hung our hessian just married bunting – we think this is a fab idea.

Tree Slice And Bark Vases – Rustic Wedding Centrepieces

For the centrepieces Jenny and Matt used our wooden bark vases on top of a wooden tree slice to complete the rustic look. The bark vases look lovely here used with dusky pink roses, nigella, hydrangeas and astrantia. A couple of bark tea light holders finished off the centrepiece. We have also spotted our bud vase card holders holding their table name cards.

Styled Shoot – Wooden Table Numbers & Milk Bottles with Straws

We love it when stylists use our items in their styled shoots. It’s great to see other peoples ideas and visions and it gives you more ideas on how they could be used at your wedding. Louise Beukes recently styled a shoot for the UK Academy of Wedding & Event Planning, using coral and peach colours as well as a few props from us (wooden table numbers and mini milk bottles with straws). We love the overall concept of this styled shoot.

See the full shoot over on Louise’s b.loved blog.

Can you spot our wooden table numbers and mini milk bottles. The milk bottles were used with our black and white straws and straw flag stickers.

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.
