Five Must Have Items for a Rustic Wedding

As the weather gets warmer, we start to see a lot more rustic wedding inspiration. This theme definitely pairs well with a sunny outdoor ceremony, so if you’re planning a rustic wedding right now, don’t forget to add these five essential items to your shopping list.

Grapevine Balls

We love using these grapevine balls as a simple rustic wedding accent. Scatter them across the table, or fill one large cylinder glass vase with these natural beauties.

Mason Jars

Mason jars are so trendy this season, and we couldn’t agree more. Although we do sell mason jars in a plethora of colors, I suggest you keep your rustic wedding simple with the clear mason jar. Perhaps fill it with pink flowers or cream flowers for a more romantic look.

Lots of Burlap

Just when you thought more burlap wasn’t possible, they went ahead and made burlap flowers :) Who would’ve ever imagined that? Pair our burlap flowers with a scripted flower in your rustic wedding centerpiece. They compliment each other quite well.

Branches Galore

Not every DIY bride likes branches, but at a rustic wedding, they are an absolute necessity.  If you’re not too crazy about the whole “tree” look, just place one at your card table for a hint of natural. If you’re going more for rustic glam, spray paint the branch and voila! – fabulous.

Get the Look: Blue Hydrangea Wedding

Blue hydrangeas are a classic and popular wedding flower. These garden stems are perfect for a summer wedding,  as they act as a gorgeous and natural accent, but don’t dominate the entire ceremony.

Assembling a blue hydrangea wedding is also incredibly easy. At the very least,  you just need several hydrangea bushes, stem cutters, floral tape, large containers, and finishing ribbon for the bouquet wrap. If you want to create a more full and diverse look, you can also add in some assorted greenery or white/cream stems, such as a rose.

The visual below shows you just how easy it is to assemble your own blue hydrangea wedding bouquet.

Blue Hydrangea Wedding  - Do It Yourself

I also fell in love with this wedding centerpiece pictured below. This is great for all you DIY brides who cannot get enough blue. The mason jars add a simple rustic touch and the blue hydrangeas definitely complete the look.

You can recreate this look by trimming off the stems from our blue hydrangea bush, and placing them in one of our blue mason jars. If you want to change it up a bit, scatter a couple mason jars around the event with white hydrangeas as well.
