Be Creative with Lighting

Having a barn wedding that needs to look great? Spice up your venue and improve its rustic aesthetic with large chandeliers throughout along with strands of light that reach across, making your venue bright and beautiful.

Set Up a Bonfire

There are few ways to end the night on a perfect note like a bonfire where you can be surrounded by friends and family in a relaxing setting. It’s also a great way to maintain an outdoor wedding reception if the weather is ideal. Why stay indoors when you can take advantage of the outdoors?

Horse-Drawn Wagons

Further taking advantage of an outdoor setting, you can take guests on a horse-drawn wagon ride along with the bride and groom, which can lend an old-fashioned flavor to your reception.

Turn Your Guestbook into a Scene of Its Own

When guests come in and see your guestbook, you can make it the perfect welcome with a photo or illustration of an outdoor farm, with other rustic decor to make it its very own feature.

Consider Soap as a Favor

One of the most rustic gifts you can give your guests is handmade soap, with burlap wrapping that carries a nice “thank you” note.

Make Your Photos Interesting

When taking those priceless wedding photos, consider adding things like a message on a tree slice or a heart frame made of branches to highlight your photographs. You can also use pastures as your setting to solidify that rustic aesthetic.

Write Guest Names on Leafs

One way to make each guest feel special is to write their names on paper leafs of different fall colors, from tan to orange to light brown. They’ll appreciate the time and effort you spend putting those together when they come to your reception.

Use Pine Cone Escort Card Holders

To complement those guest name leafs, you can also use pine cones to hold guests’ table assignments and further decorate your wedding table arrangements. Or you can attach them to billy balls with wooden boxes and moss for a more colorful display.

Wrap Cake Cutlery in Twine

A nice small touch is to wrap the knives used to cut the glamorous wedding cake in twine.

Use Tree Stumps and Candles in Lieu of a Fireplace

Rather than use a typical fireplace, you can give your wedding an even more original and appealing look with tree stumps that contain candles.

These are simply some of the many unique ways you can create the perfect rustic wedding look for your reception. Your guests will never forget your wedding when you implement some of these ideas.
