A rustic wedding needs stationery and decorations that fit a rustic theme, including rustic wedding place cards. Whether your wedding is indoors or outside, there are some easy ways to add rustic flair to the ceremony and reception. Here are a few ideas.
Rustic Program Baskets
When your guests grab a program, you can add to the rustic theme of your special day by placing cards in a wicker basket decorated with greenery, rope or other elements used in your wedding. Rustic programs inspired by the outdoors look great in such a basket, and you can use this basket for guests to grab their own programs or for a friend to hand them out.
Use or reuse this idea for your guestbook table. A wooden or wicker basket for the pen your guests use can make the simple act of arriving feel more rustic. Not only does this add to the homey feel of your big day, but it ensures all your stationery is well-designed.
Uses for Burlap
Using burlap in a few places is a good way to create a picturesque setting. Thick lengths of burlap can cover the main aisle, or use smaller strips as garland and streamers. Thick or thin, burlap adds an unaffected flair wherever you put it. When you add a string of white or yellow lights, you give yourself the option to use burlap to light an outdoor wedding.
Woodblock Table Numbers
Since you already want rustic place cards, why not use rustic centerpieces and table numbers? A wood block with a number burned into it or painted on it adds a custom touch and helps guests find where they are sitting.
Designing a rustic wedding doesn't have to start with rustic place cards, but they do make a great addition to the rest of your themed stationery. With the tools available at Shutterfly, design your rustic paper elements your way, and ship them when you want to.
