Vintage Rustic Wedding Floral + Decor

As mentioned earlier in the week, the inspiration this week focuses around a Vintage Rustic affair.
I like the Vintage Rustic aesthetic because to me, it romanticizes normal rustic decor…giving it a boost of loveliness for a wedding. I assembled some centerpiece + decor ideas + inspiration below.

I will highlight a few:
- looking for a centerpiece but not keen on traditional favors? The idea is not new but is a lovely one: use mini potted plants + min floral arrangements for place cards and/or favors. When grouped together, they can make a cute little centerpiece.

- for a more rustic ring bearer pillow, see this one from Luckey U.

- I spotted this DIY rustic cake stand on from Once Wed via Simply Natural.

- to fill that space if you are going light on the flowers, look into Lanterns like those below from Pottery Barn or even mini lanterns + mini centerpieces like in this photo taken by from Mel Barlow.

Today: Out of the Box Centerpieces…

So, it may not be a surprise that I love centerpieces. For my wedding, centerpieces were definitely the thing I was most wishy-washy on because of the endless possibilities. I decided on low centerpieces to allow people to better talk to one another and see each other – that was important to me. Centerpieces don’t have to be tall or large to grab the attention of your guests…

Check out today’s out of the box centerpiece inspiration via my guest blog post at the Wishpot Wedding Blog.

It could be as simple as adding ribbon around the vase, either covering it completely, around the middle, or in a bow…

Branch Centerpieces

Quite a number of you have inquired about branch centerpieces. Of course, I am not surprised given how popular using branches this year is (and aiding in cutting floral costs). My trendy sister came across these images in an insideweddings.com magazine she had. The branches are utilized so simply but they, combined with the candles, really pack a punch.

My Return

I'm back from a short vacation to Holland. It was great and I have to say I fell (back) in love with tulips. Maybe because they are everywhere there but I found a new appreciation for them. Although they aren't my favorite choices for bouquets because they are somewhat fragile and can easily go limp, I do like them in a short vase for a fun, yet small centerpiece like this one from Martha Stewart's Web site.
