Wooden Crate Boxes, Confetti Petals & Blackboard Bucket Centrepieces

Charlotte and Bradley added a touch of country charm to their wedding tables by using our blackboard buckets as their wedding centrepieces. These blackboard bucket centrepieces are the perfect fit for a rustic or country wedding. You can write the table name or numbers on the piece of blackboard. This loved-up duo opted for a delightful combination of blush pink, ivory and green blooms created by Passion for Flowers to fill their blackboard buckets. We love the fact that they used lots of little tea-lights to give their tables a warm glow.

There are lots of different ways you could use our blackboard buckets centrepieces throughout your wedding. You could stack them up to use them as a stylish seating plan, or you could fill with fun activity books and table games to keep the children entertained.

Charlotte and Bradley also used wooden crates throughout their wedding day to add a rustic feel to their decor. They used the crates to hold the bride and bridesmaids’ beautiful bouquets. You can also use wooden crates to display your seating plan, or as shelves for decorations.

The couple opted for pink confetti to use after they had said ‘I Do’. If you’re struggling for ideas on how to display your confetti, this real wedding is bursting with inspiration.

You could display it in silver buckets for a dash of country garden elegance. They also look gorgeous in floral cones or our ‘Sprinkle Me’ bags.

We adore how Charlotte and Bradley filled jugs with roses and used them to decorate their wedding venue. They used them to add a floral touch to their card and gift table, and it effortlessly added to the beauty of Shustoke Barn!

Passion for Flowers have some fabulous ideas for their weddings, such as tying a simple luggage tag to each buttonhole. This is a fab way of avoiding any confusion on the morning of your wedding day!

 Where to start when styling a country garden wedding

Choosing the venue

If you’re thinking of having a country garden style wedding it is important to choose a venue that’s going to fit with your style. Venues that work well for relaxed country garden weddings are barns, marquees or garden settings. National trust properties make an idyllic setting for a country garden wedding.

Add some colour

The lovely thing about country gardens is the mix of colours, if you are having this style of wedding you don’t have to commit to one or two colours only. Having a mix of bright colours works really well in this setting. You could add this into your day through different coloured bridesmaids’ dresses or more subtly through a mix of colourful flowers.  Here Passion for Flowers created a mix of different bridesmaids’ bouquets to reflect the different coloured bridesmaids’ dresses.

Lead the way

Once guests arrive at your wedding venue make sure they know where they are going, hanging signs outside on gates and from trees is a great way to direct your guests. Love this sign saying This Way To The I Do’s. At The Wedding of my Dreams we have a range of directional signs available.

The table plan is another feature where you can bring out your theme, set up your table plan in a corner of a room and make a statement of it, style it with jugs and bottles to make it a lovely feature. The Wedding of my Dreams has a whole range of table plans for country garden weddings.

On the tables

Bring the country garden theme through on your guest tables. Over the linen cloth lay a square of hessian or hessian runner and choose between buckets, jugs, milk churns or any quirky containers you can get your hands on for your centrepieces. Ask your florist to use natural country garden flowers, if your venue has a garden ask if your florist can include some of the same flowers that can be found in the gardens this will help the centrepieces look very in keeping and true to the setting.

Wedding favours

If you are giving favours perhaps you could make your own jam or chutney and give a small jar to each guest, or scented lavender grain or small bunches of lavender on every place setting would be lovely. You may want to keep it simple and give sweets or chocolates, choosing a lovely favour box will help keep them look in keeping with the style of your day.

Around the room

You can create real impact as guests walk into the venue by hanging decorations from the ceiling. Paper pom poms, lanterns or long lengths of bunting work really well for this.
