A lot goes into planning a wedding with unique decoration ideas. And whether you’re doing it all on your own, or with the help of a professional coordinator, you probably envision a day that you would like to be unique to you and your fiancé. You also want an event that your guests will enjoy along with you. Because you decided on using a rustic wedding venue, you’ve already stepped away from “the traditional”, and have set the stage for country charm that is wonderful and easy to work with.
The natural setting and color palette provide beautiful backdrops for photos and videos; the ambiance is automatically warm, friendly and inviting. So, it’s the little extras that can make all the difference in distinguishing your wedding ceremony and reception from any other that you, your friends, and family have attended before.
It’s our job to provide assistance to the bride and groom, to help create the day of their dreams. Let us do some of the legwork for you by sharing a few ideas and resources to get you started on finding those added touches that you can make your own.
Show me a sign
Wooden signs and chalkboards are functional and fun items to enhance your rustic décor while helping guide your guests as they arrive to where to find refreshments, the restroom, and table seating for example. Go beyond assigning a flower girl and ring bearer, and instead, have the children in your wedding march down the aisle with a sweet, personalized burlap sign announcing “Here comes the bride.”
PaperandPineCo on Etsy is one shop with a variety of customized options. An internet search will yield plenty of options.
Forget the traditional Guest Book that you will rarely look at again, and opt for a keepsake that becomes art you can enjoy and is entertaining for your guests to sign…
Follow your rustic theme with a framed shadow box of sorts, designed for your guests to drop in signed wooden hearts, filling the frame with love. You can search Amazon or Etsy to find something similar.
