Rustic Wedding Centerpieces
Updated: Aug 4
Planning a rustic wedding has a lot of beautiful aspects to carry out the charming theme, one of which is the centerpieces at your reception. Choosing the right accents in your design can help set the scene of your rustic wedding in the countryside regardless if you have a beautiful barn venue or not. Below are some ideas to consider when creating your wedding centerpieces.
Flowers are love's truest language
Fresh blooms are, by far, the prettiest way to carry your wedding's color palette while staying true to your rustic theme. Earthy colors are the easiest way to stay on theme for a countrified atmosphere, while plain white or a bright pop of color can create a stunning effect to the whole motif. Choosing which direction you want to go should flow from your bridal bouquet either with like flowers, complimentary blooms, or foliage.

While flowers are the most well known aspect of centerpieces, the base you choose impacts the overall tablescape just as much as the floral arrangement. Choosing the right vessel can mold the overall look and make it uniquely you. For a rustic theme, using wooden or tin urns and boxes, wood slices, lanterns, vintage enamel water jugs, clear vases or jars, or bronze bowls can really upscale your arrangements and reinforce your theme. Using materials that you would find in nature or on a farm embraces the rustic feel and adds a visual interest to your centerpieces.
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
-Leonardo De Vinci
Sometimes the simplest centerpiece is all you need. Fabric or floral table runners composed of blooms or a greenery garland create a low profile centerpiece that compliments your barn wedding ambience. Whether you're going for a laid back feel or an upscale chic vibe, a well placed table runner could create a truly inspired piece of decor that's sure to fit your vision.
Whether you're planning a charmingly country style wedding or an elegantly rustic affair, having the right centerpiece is key to creating the vision for your special day. With so many varieties, colors, and different ways to arrange your ideas, you'll have no problem creating a rustic tablescape that's as unique as you.
