Country themed weddings are especially popular these days, with many couples embracing the rustic feel as they plan their ceremonies and receptions. Whether you're holding your wedding at a barn or are simply looking to dress up a traditional banquet hall with a country feel, there are all kinds of beautiful and unique decor ideas to consider for your special day.
Mason Jar Floral Arrangements
Mason jars in general scream "country," so if you can find fun ways to incorporate them into your wedding, you're off to a good start! Consider, for example, placing your flower arrangements inside mason jars instead of in a traditional vase. You can even add an extra touch of "rustic chic" by wrapping some of your mason jars in burlap. Baby's breath flowers are great for a country themed wedding, and because they're among the cheapest flowers you can buy, they're also a great way to maximize your budget!
Hay Bales for the Ceremony
If you're hosting an outdoor ceremony, consider renting hay bales for your guests to sit on during the ceremony instead of traditional white folding chairs. You can likely contact a local barn to inquire about hay bale rentals or purchasing. Some barn wedding venues may already have these available to use, so don't hesitate to ask!
Twinkle Lights Abundant
The soft glow of twinkle lights sets a beautiful backdrop for your wedding ceremony and reception--one that is reminiscent of a starry country night sky. Ask your venue if you're permitted to hang string lights and if so, take advantage! Twinkle lights are an inexpensive way to transform even the most "traditional" of banquet halls into something a little more rustic. Even if you cannot hang lights from the ceilings, you may be able to wrap them around pillars, tables, and other decor for a similar look.
Rustic Wood Centerpiece Holders
Looking for a rustic centerpiece holder? Look no further than your local lumber yard. You can have tree bark cut into an oval or another unique shape that can then be used to rest your centerpieces (such as floral arrangements and table numbers) on top of.
Achieving a rustic, country look for your upcoming wedding just involves a bit of planning and creativity. By trying out some of these unique decor ideas for yourself, however, you'll be well on your way to hosting the country wedding of your dreams in no time.
