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.

The team opted for a rustic wooden tree slice for the table number, held gracefully in a antique gilded frame. The contrast of both elements really does pull off a rustic elegant wedding theme, don’t you think?

Natural linen wedding favour bags were a wonderful addition to the styled shoot and they can be filled with anything of your choice. From seeds to boiled sweets – there are plenty of ideas. Herbs or dried lavender are a lovely option for a rustic elegant wedding theme.

Chalkbaord Wedding Signs & More @ The National Wedding Show

You may or may not know that Karen and Gemma Morgan of The Wedding of my Dreams also run Passion for Flowers, their wedding florist business based in the West Midlands. Passion for Flowers exhibited last weekend at The National Wedding Show Birmingham and of course finished off their stand with chalkboard wedding signs, bronze tea light holders and many more lovely decorations from The Wedding of my Dreams.

See more photos of Passion for Flowers stand over on their blog. Photography by Daffodil Waves Photography.

Chalkboard Wedding Signs

Our chalkboard wedding signs were a big hit with couples at the wedding show, we used them as wedding chair signs on either side of the table. The here comes the bride chalkboard sign would usually be held by a young bridesmaid or page boy as they walk down the aisle. The Mr and Mrs chalkboard signs could be hung on the bride and groom’s chairs.

Advice For The Bride And Groom Coasters – Alternative Wedding Guest Books

The rustic wooden table was set for 6, at each place setting our advice for the bride and groom coasters were displayed. Guests can fill these in leaving their comments for the newly married couple, either provide pegs to hang these up on display around the venue or ask guests to post them into a wedding mailbox.

Bud Vase Name Card Holders – Just Like Salt Cellars

Our bud vase name card holders were at every place setting, holding lovely stationery from Tom Gautier. A tiny sprig of wax flower was placed in the bud vase, we love the idea of these being given as a wedding favour for guests to take home with them.

Bronze Tea Light Holders & Vases

The table scape used a mix of bronze vases in assorted sizes as well as crystal glass vases which had been sourced from flea markets and vintage shops.  Dotted around the florals were our bronze ribbed tea light holders and our chunky bronze vases were used in the mix on the table.
