Rustic Glam Wedding Ideas
Take it away, Kristina!
By Kristina Anderson
Rustic vibe ruled the bridal scene for the past two years and if there is any doubt that this trend is here to stay, the domination of eco-friendly glam photos on Pinterest offers clear proof that burlap charm is still shaping up to be next year’s definitive wedding statement. The rise in Instagram hashtags related to neutral tones, nature-inspired themes and ultra-feminine design palettes contributed to this claim also. As it appears, it seems that we are bound to see less and less shabby-chic touches and jute-infused wedding fashion is going to take an extra glamorous direction.
If this is your wedding theme, an infallible formula that will absolutely set the rustic chic mood right from the start is finding the perfect balance of undone effortlessness and understated finish. Take note of this before buying your table linens and selecting your wedding venue. Also, do not overlook the fact that to expose burlap’s unaffected beauty, picking the right accents will be necessary. We’ve seen the epic successes of burlap and lace, burlap and beach, and burlap and retro-charm made possible by the sweet tandem of burlap table runners and sashes. As a 2015 bride, you’d love to take an all-new path or one that is rarely taken—the elegant route.
To get you started with your planning, here’s a round-up of real-world wedding inspiration photos that exude a highly-charged imagery of natural elegance and subtle sophistication.
Name Cards via Canvas Hang Tags
For a more culture-infused place setting, use burlap pouches to create cutlery holders. Shown here is an Asian-themed wedding.
Drawstring bags will give your wedding favors a personal, homespun feel.
Medium-sized burlap bags make beautiful table centerpieces. For a more-defined look, you can opt for square burlap vase holders.
Use stylish, small details to spread your theme throughout the wedding. Use colored jute twines, jute rope, white chantilly lace, and natural burlap ribbon to tie, bundle, and thread everything from cloth napkins to wedding favors.
Burlap tote bags will deliver your “thank you” messages in an elegantly impressive way.
Couture Wedding Candles. The photos reveal the story and the “whys”.
Reveal your personal style with the dainty, little rosettes and mason jar accents.
For 2015 Weddings, the forecast revolves around Blush sharing the stage with White. Gray is also one of the special mentions in the color department. But whichever shade you choose, the key ingredient lies not in volume but in how every detail carries the concept that you’ve envisioned for your wedding. The main theme, no one shall forget, is the celebration of your union.
