One idea for a small country wedding is choosing an outdoor setting for the ceremony and reception that feels relaxed. For ceremony decor, wooden accents tie the theme together, such as wood benches for the guests, tree stumps for aisle markers or an altar made of birch. Long stalks of dried wheat used as garlands or wreaths with silk ribbons or burlap accents have a rustic but feathery feel. If the ceremony is inside, decorate the altar with multiple candles on tree stumps. Flowers are incorporated in interesting ways, such as arranging large, bright bouquets on whiskey barrels in various places through the ceremony and reception.

Decorate an old pickup truck for use as a photo station for guests or as transportation for the wedding party. The cake is one way to enhance the theme, such as using a calico or gingham pattern on the icing or creating a strawberry shortcake tiered cake with fresh berries, mascarpone and pound cake. If the reception is at night, string lights, big rugs and white tablecloths brighten up the venue. Some ideas for table decor include candles in a mason jar, baskets full of seasonal fruits, large bouquets of local wildflowers and birch wood place mats.
