Rustic decoration ideas for a country wedding include burlap, wildflowers, hay bales, wood decorations, and mismatched containers such as glass jars and tin buckets. Any decorations made from natural items found in the country work well for the theme.
Having the wedding in a country setting such as a farm provides natural decoration that fits into the rustic theme. Barns, wood fences, silos and farm machinery are examples of items in the backdrop that work as decorations. Burlap bows, ribbons or wildflowers add to these existing items and help dress them up for the wedding.
Burlap is a versatile material suitable for the rustic country theme. It comes in a variety of widths and works for table runners, aisle runners, banners, bows and garlands. Adding lace softens the look of the burlap.
Wildflowers capture the look of the country while adding color to the wedding decorations. They work as bouquets for the wedding party and as table decorations.
Hay bales serve a functional purpose in addition to the visual rustic effect. For an outdoor wedding, small rectangle bales covered with fabric work well as seating. Larger round hay bales standing upright create tables around an outdoor dance floor where guests can stand and congregate.
Wood is another natural element that fits in well at a country wedding. This might include wood signs directing guests to the celebrations, wood crates to hold favors, and stumps used as seating or small tables.
