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.

 Hessian, Lace & Lavender – Country Rustic Decor From The Wedding of my Dreams

Pretty lavender bridal bouquet tied with hessian and lace wrap

Love the lavender and astilbe bouquet tied with hessian and a lace overlay, this looks beautiful against Jess’ lace dress. The button holes were a simple lavender button hole finished off with twine for the country rustic look.

Jess carried on her country rustic style with a beautiful bunch of lavender tied to the church gate, what a lovely welcome for the guests and of course the posy was tied to the gate with hessian.

Bunch of lavender tied with hessian added to church gate entrance Jess and John used our hessian and lace ring cushion for their wedding rings, we think it fits perfectly with their theme.

Our small hessian favour bags were filled with a tea bag, along with a couple of drinks tokens for the bar and placed at each guests place setting with a luggage tag showing their name. Love the use of our Time to drink champagne and dance on the tables paper bags at everyone’s place setting too, with a handful of pick n mix inside.

Marquee Wedding Decorations ~ Join Us On Pinterest

Over the last few months the wedding season has well and truly kicked off, on the weekends I have been working with our sister company Passion for Flowers as it becomes their busiest time of year. A number of the recent weddings I have been setting up have been in marquees, each of them has been wonderfully decorated. This week I have been pinning my favourite marquee wedding decorations.

Follow our Pinterest Board to see more marquee wedding decorations

marquee wedding decorations

There is so much scope when decorating a marquee wedding, the marquee acts as a blank canvas for you to put your own style on it. I love bunting hanging from the marquee poles or pom pom and lanterns.

Add colour to the tables by adding a hessian runner or square of hessian. Keep to a country / rustic look by using bottles, jam jars, jugs and buckets on the tables or add glamour by using mercury silver glass vases.
