Real Wedding – Lavender Place Settings, Hessian Details & Cake Bunting

Claire and Ben were married at Cripps Barn, a lovely rustic barn venue in the Cotswolds. They wanted to create a rustic look at their wedding as this suited the style of venue they had chosen. They used a number of our rustic wedding decorations for their wedding, including lavender place settings, hessian details and mini cake bunting.

Lavender Place Settings

On each ladies place setting was a flat folded napkin, with an individual menu and a couple of stems of dried lavender tied with twine. Guests’ names had been stamped on to luggage tags to show them where to sit. lavender place settings with dried lavender on menu

Luggage Tags for Buttonholes with Names Stamped On

The buttonholes were all labeled up so guests knew who they belonged to, alphabet stamps were used to stamp the names onto luggage tags. We love this idea.
