Rustic Wedding Vibes: how to get it right

married couple in field

Whether you're a country girl at heart, or you just prefer a relaxed, back-to-nature vibe over dollars and diamantes, a rustic-themed wedding could be right up your road.

If you're starting out on your wedding planning journey, it's easy to incorporate a rustic theme into your venue, and then build from the ground up - start out with an original barn, heritage building, winery or farmyard field, and add wildflowers to your bouquet and wooden tables without linen. But if you've already locked in the nearest surf club and you've still got your heart set on the rustic vibe, never fear: a few well-chosen decorations and bonbonniere can give any venue the laid-back, rustic country wedding vibe of your dreams.

First impressions count

A Save-the-Date may seem like a throwaway item designed to convey information - and let's face it, if your groom was in charge, it'd probably amount to a set of photocopied flyers stuck under car windshields - but a great one can really set the tone for the rest of your special day. One show-stopping idea is to create a beautiful keepsake your friends and family will cherish, rather than just something to open and forget.

These Wooden Save the Date Cards come in a variety of artwork options and each feature a magnet strip on the back, so guests can stick them to the fridge, no excuses for not including it on the family calendar! Best of all, they're easy to send, and come with 11B craft envelopes for easy mailing. If you and your hubby are planning a destination wedding for your guests, you can't beat these Engraved Wooden Save the Date Luggage Tags with Leather Cord. These rectangular 3mm wooden pieces have been uniquely designed to look like a luggage tags, and can be personalised with your names, date and wedding details.

Getting the gang together  

Putting together your bridal party is one of the most exciting parts of wedding planning, and you'll want to keep your request on-theme, too. Ensure you have the most important people at your side on your wedding day with these gorgeous Engraved Wooden Bridal Party Cards, which are made from beautiful, honey-brown alder wood, and feature a magnet on the back. Or for groomsmen with a funny side, these Engraved Wooden Groomsman Bow Tie Cards are the perfect way to ask them to be part of your big day: just add your favourite novelty tie! And don't forget the littlest members of your wedding party. Any soon-to-be flower girl will be thrilled to be told the big news with this stunning Wooden Flower Girl Puzzle Piece, and letting her put it all together herself will really build the excitement.

Going to the chapel and we're gonna get married

And now for the big one - the wedding invitations. Take the traditional printed invite one step further into vintage, rustic glam with these Printed Wooden Wedding Invitations. Created in full colour onto rustic Tasmanian Oak, they also feature magnets on the back, so your guests can keep they safely on their fridge. As another unique alternative, these Engraved Square Wooden Wedding Invitations will complement any rustic, vintage wedding, and are professionally laser engraved onto 3mm cherry wood. If you're less keen on the wooden vibe but still want to keep it rustic, check out these Printed Frosted Acrylic Invitations which come with a beautiful wildflower design, or make it fun with a Puzzle Wedding Invitation and Save the Date Set.

Give the gift of rustic charm

There's no better way to incorporate a vintage look into your big day than with a well-placed 'thank you' gift or wedding favour, as it will ensure your guests take your rustic vibes back home with them long after the day is done. These beautiful Wooden Engraved Laser-Cut Bookmarks are a classic wedding favour that will be perfect for anyone in the writing industry, like librarians, writers, editors, or publishers, or just those loved-up bookworms. Still on the practical front, the Love Bottle Openers with Wooden Gift Tags are another timeless keepsake that will get a lot of use in years to come (or as the wedding night wears on.) For something less wooden but still vintage-inspired, these Gold Chocolate Bars can also double as place cards, making them yummy and practical.

The perfect pressie for the bride and groom

Guests can make sure the theme stays strong, too, by giving a gift that incorporates the vibes the bride and groom have worked so hard to create, like these Engraved Bamboo Wine Box with Tool Set, or an Engraved Wooden Group Therapy Set with Complimentary Champagne Glasses. When they unwrap these special pieces, the newlyweds are sure to remember their big day, and your love and friendship, every time they take a sip.
