8 Fresh Rustic Wedding Decor Ideas

September 16, 2013  68 Comments

Hello, loves! If you’re planning a rustic wedding, do not miss today’s post! We’ve showed you amazing rustic wedding decor ideas in the past, but today we’re sharing some fresh new finds from PNZ Designs! Plus, we’ve teamed up with Nicole (owner of PNZ Designs) to offer one lucky Emmaline Bride reader a free $75 gift certificate towards anything in the shop! Ready to score some freebies? Read on to find out more…

Rustic Wedding Decor Ideas

1. Rustic Ring Box

Instead of a ring pillow, how about a ring box? This box is sweetly adorned with wood hearts that read, ‘With This Ring, I Thee Wed’. Your ring bearer can carry this tiny box instead of a pillow and you can re-use it as a safe place to hold your rings (temporarily).

2. Rustic ‘Love Sweet Love’ Cake Topper

That cake looks delicious, but even more so with that adorable ‘love sweet love’ topper!

3. Bride + Groom Chair Banners

Deck out your chairs with these custom wooden banners. This is the finishing touch for a sweetheart table or head table.

4. Mason Jar Magnet Favors

Need favors? These mason jar magnets are a fitting touch for a rustic wedding. There are different quantities available, in case you need just a handful for a bridal shower or over a hundred for your wedding reception.

5. Mason Jar Unity Set

This mason jar unity set is a charming alternative to the traditional unity candle. I love the monogrammed jars for the bride and groom, with the new last name initial for the main vessel. Use the jars for a sand unity ceremony. Fill each jar with sand and pour them into one main jar to symbolize two becoming one in marriage.

6. Tree Slice for Centerpieces

Tree slices – also known as tree slabs – are a lovely holding spot for centerpiece decor. This tree slice in particular is a perfect size and looks great with the table number and mason jar vase.

Need a cake server set? This lace and burlap combination is so pretty.

And, last but not least, these lace-wrapped vow books are a lovely way to record (and recite) your vows.

    The items that combine wood and lace are beautiful and give the same feeling of natural and timeless beauty we’d love to express through our wedding décor.
