Going Rustic: Things to make your wedding perfectly rustic.

Thursday, July 28, 2011
When I think about the word 'rustic' i think about the barn at my best friend's house growing up, mud boots, tire swings, hay bales, and well... rust.

The images that are conjured up by my mind when thinking of the word are so pleasant, happy and carefree, i can totally understand why Rustic Weddings are becoming so popular. They're so pleasant, happy and carefree. Theres definitely a romance to getting married in a marvelous old barn, or a beautiful vineyard, and as we all know, getting married is all about romance. 

Here are a few of the things i've thought of to make your wedding perfectly rustic:

Mason Jars. Oh Lordy, how gorgeous they are these? Your mom probably has some buried somewhere with her canning supplies, if not they're still around, you can buy them new at grocery stores, for those budget conscious brides, who dont mind venturing into thrift stores you can also find tons of them at goodwill for less than a dollar a piece. Here's why Mason Jars are so cool. You can use them for everything. They are candle holders, they're vases, they're food safe, and they are oh so cute.
Wild Flowers. The kind of flowers that you would find around your home. For me, up here in the Pacific Northwest, its Daisies, Dandelions, and Daffodils. They're pretty little flowers that deserve a nod on your wedding day, and they're much less expensive than orchids imported from hawaii. Dont forget to put loads of your wild flowers in your mason jars ;)

Wood Table Numbers and/or Directional Signs. Nothing says rustic wedding like a wooden Hand painted sign telling guests where to go, or where their table is. Use old wood found on a farm somewhere, that will give the best results, and wooden rounds from small branches are cute too.

Tie everything with twine. You can use hemp string, or cotton string, or even baling twine if you want (although, i dont reccomend it, because i've only ever seen it in bright orange.) But tie everything with your string of choice. You can use it instead of napkin rings, you can tie it around the flower bouquets, you can tie it around your vases, centerpieces, use it to tie up those wooden signs, you can even tie it around your invitations! It adds such a sweet rustic touch to everything.

Lace. Lace also adds a pretty and yet rustic feel. Lace is something that is making a bit of a come back. Use lace table cloths, use lace around the bride and bridesmaid's bouquets. Wear lace dresses! Im a huge advocate for lace. Here at Wedding Belle Favors, we're even tossing around the idea of using lace bags for lavender sachets, how cute would that be?!

Dont forget about your wedding favors though, they add the perfect touch to every table. Check out these beauties!

Embroidered Lavender Sachets. Filled with real dried lavender in a burlap pouch. Tied with a lavender colored satin ribbon. We would be happy to tie it with string though, if you would like ;)

Most of our favors are hand made, so you can be sure that lots of love and care goes into each and every one, just for you, because its your wedding day.

Polka Dot Watering Cans!

Finally! Back in stock, our adorable polka dot watering cans!

We missed them.

Did you know that every single one of those dots on the cans are hand painted? In fact, most of our favors are hand made right here at the Wedding Belle Favors Headquarters. We love what we do.

For the curious, these little favors are so versatile. They're both water tight and food safe, so use them for candies, or lollipops, for mini bouquets, bathsalts, seeds, we even had a customer inquire about using them for salad dressing!

Not really into the whole showering can thing? We also have Polka Dot Pails. They're just as cute, but dont have a spout. ;)
