Rustic Elegant Wedding Ideas – Tree Slice and Escort Card Ideas

Today we’re sharing with you this utterly gorgeous wedding shoot, styled by Lauradana of Wedding Creations and captured by the very talented Theresa Furey. The concept behind the shoot was to create a rustic elegant wedding theme – a heavenly combination! The team used an abundance of greenery, natural materials such as hessian and linen, as well as subtle metallic details for a hint of glamour. The result was just stunning, so let’s take a look…

Lauradana of Wedding Creations opted for rustic brown wedding stationery, teamed with a mini wreath tied with twine ribbon. She added a natural linen napkin, which looks effortlessly elegant against the contrast of a gold rimmed plate.

Lots of couples have fallen in love with the idea of a greenery garland as an alternative to traditional wedding centrepieces. This works perfectly for long trestle tables and it looks striking against a weathered wooden surface. The team worked in a handful of golden candlesticks for a romantic glow.

If you love this idea for your own wedding day, all you need to do is write the name of each guest on the tree slice. You can also add a few flowers or sprigs of foliage to the twine ribbon.

While you can display this style of seating plan however you choose, the team used an old wheel as their inspiration. This is the perfect match for an industrial wedding venue or a rustic barn. Your guests will also love the unusual and unique idea for your table arrangements.

Elegant Wedding Place Settings And Napkin Dressing Inspiration

Sometimes a single flower is all you need to add elegance to your wedding place settings. A rose works perfectly for a country garden or vintage wedding theme. If you’re planning a colourful Summer wedding, you could use a cut lisianthus or rose head. Tuck it in the napkin or place in a small bud vase to avoid it wilting.

Green wreaths are being used throughout wedding venues as backdrops or hanging installations. However, we are swooning over the thought of using a small floral wreath to add some prettiness to your place settings. You could create the same style throughout your tables, or create a different design for each guests. These are so gorgeous that they could easily double up as your wedding favours too.

For a sprinkling of romance, we suggest adding an antique metal key to your wedding place settings. Tie to your napkin with a delicate ribbon and offer them to your guests as a wedding favour. Keys can represent a number of things at a wedding. ‘You’re the key to my heart’ or ‘Unlocking our future’ our both lovely quotes to use. You could handwrite them on a little luggage tag and attach them to the key.
