There is something for everyone whether you want to use traditional motifs such as a pair of old boots on a wedding dress or a natural rock formation as your table centerpiece.

These make an elegant first impression as flanking the front entrance to your rustic wedding, they also make a pleasing first impression to your guests who are all enjoying the fresh air. A pair of large conches held on both sides by branches of Holly will be especially striking against a backdrop of deep pink flowers in a vase.

Guest Seating

Another rustic wedding decoration feature is guest seating. Guest tables are a great feature of rustic decorating as guests can sit around them and enjoy the rustic surroundings. In the case of a guest table runner, the runner can be placed on one side of the tables and could even be designed to form part of the table centerpiece. In this way, the rustic decorations not only act as centerpieces on the tables but act as seating for the guests as well.

It can include ornate iron brackets or simply simple straight sides. If you wish you can have the corbel made of material such as metal or stone. The metal corbel will be especially effective as it can be matched to any rustic furniture and can create an authentic contrast.

DIY Projects

These can then be strategically placed around the reception hall and at each table.

Add An Excellent Touch
