Rustic Barn Wedding Decorations: Bright Colourful Same Sex Wedding – Real Wedding

We love it when our couples send us their wedding photos, each and every one of our customers will use our decorations in their own individual way to create a wedding that is tailored to them and Anita and Claudia did just that.

Anita and Claudia were married at The Ferry House Inn in Kent. They wanted a wedding that reflected them both so that meant lots of colour, lots of personal touches and everything being vegan. If you are planning a wedding in a barn or with lots of bright colours browse through their photos to see how they used our rustic barn wedding decorations, don’t forget to pin your favourites!

Anita and Claudia’s wedding has recently been featured on Rock N Roll Bride, so pop over to see more photos from their wedding.

Bright Colourful Same Sex Wedding

Anita is Italian, and Claudia is Swiss-German, so everything (invites, menus, wedding website etc) was written in three different languages. They used our blackboard arrow signs to show guests where to sit for the wedding ceremony.

For their wedding favours Claudia and Anita chose our ‘Let The Love Grow’ wedding favour envelopes which were filled with seeds for their guests to plant. The envelopes and stickers are personalised with the name of the couple and wedding date.  let the love grown personalised seed packet wedding favours - rustic barn wedding decorations - same sex wedding

The centrepieces were bright rustic flowers in a simple mason jar sitting on a rustic tree slice. We think these look fab in the barn setting. Tree slice wedding centrepieces -rustic barn wedding decorations (1)

For the table numbers Anita and Claudia stuck our personalised table number stickers to their wine bottles. These were personalised with the name of the couple and wedding date. Don’t they look amazing next to those wonderfully bright flowers. rustic table number stickers for wine bottle persolasied with name of couple - rustic barn wedding decorations Tree slice wedding centrepieces -rustic barn wedding decorations (2) same sex wedding bright colourful rustic barn wedding decorations and ideas (2)

I love the use of our ‘Mrs’ chalkboard signs as wedding chair backs too. same sex wedding chalkboard mrs & mrs signs - rustic barn wedding decorations

For the table plan Anita and Claudia chose to use our birdcage table plan with luggage tags, and alphabet stamps to add that personal touch.

Bark Vase Rustic Wedding Centrepiece

This week our wedding decoration of the week is our bark vase rustic wedding centrepiece. This bark container is a lovely vessel to use if you are looking to create a rustic style centrepiece. Depending on the overall size you want for your centrepiece we suggest using one of these in the centre with 3 – 5 bark tea light holders around it. Or for a larger centrepiece we suggest a grouping of two of these vases in the centre of the table as well as one of the larger size again with bark tea light holders mixed in to complete the look. Hessian / burlap table runners would add to this look too.

Rustic Urn Wedding Centrepiece

Our rustic urn wedding centrepiece is a great choice of container for your centrepieces if you are hoping for statement florals for your rustic wedding. Rather than choosing smaller jars and bottles for a grouping you might be after something more substantial for your tables.

Our rustic urn looks lovely in the centre of a wedding table, sit them on a square of hessian or hessian table runner to add an extra rustic touch. Ask your florist to add florals in keeping with the rustic style you have chosen, flowing foliage, moss and seasonal flowers work well.

10 Rustic Wedding Centrepieces

Tree slices are excellent for adding a little height and rustic touch to your centrepieces, add bottles filled with single stem blooms, tea light holders or even a whole jug of flowers to the tree slice, you could have different items on different tables to add interest to you reception decorations. Buy tree slices here.

3. For an alternative rustic centerpiece use these bark vases, wild flowers with lots of texture look best in these rustic containers. The vases come in different sizes depending on how low or high you want your centrepieces to be, if flowers aren’t your style the bark containers can also be used as lanterns. Buy bark vases here.

4. For a simple yet still very rustic look you could collect jam jars to be used as your vases. Decorate the jam jars with twine or hessian to add a rustic look and fill with flowers of your choice. If you are doing these yourself you can decorate the jam jars well in advance of your wedding and as the flowers are in water they can be done the day before so you don’t have to be making them up on the wedding day.

5. Similar to the jam jars above these blue mason jars look fab as wedding centrepieces. You could even use dried wheat instead of fresh flowers for a rustic / barn wedding.

6. For a larger floral display in the centre of a table rusty urns can work well. For the flowers a mixture of natural textures including moss, foliage with berries such as this eucayptus and seasonal blooms work well. Buy rusty urns here.

7. We love this idea of using trinkets and special items you may have been given throughout your life or sourced from charity shops especially for the tables. You can use a mix of different items here but be sure to link them, you can link them by choosing a colour scheme, bronze works well with the natural tones of wood. Place the items on pieces of wood and add minimal foliage.

8. Milk churns work well for centrpieces they can hold a lovely mix of flowers and add a rustic touch to your tables. They are perfect for farm or barn wedding venues. By milk churn vases here.

9. If you want to decorate your vases yourself find some cheap clear glass vases, ikea or eBay probably have some great ones. Decorate these with hessian fabric and an overlap of lace ribbon to given them that rustic feel. This vase has been filled with gypsophila but you can ask add the flowers of your choice.

10. For a taller rustic centrepiece tall glass vases with ever larger wooden branches placed within them can look stunning. Add white hydrangeas to the vases so there is some floral interest at eye level. Hang small jam jars / tea light holders from the branches which can be lit and will transform your venue as the lights go dim later on in the evening.
