A Rustic Affair Part 2: The Ceremony

25 Aug

Your wedding ceremony is the most significant and sacred part of your special day and, as such, should be filled with beautiful details that show off your rustic style and elegance.

One stunning way brides are transforming their ceremony space into a rustic scene is by creating unique and stylish alters. Branches, twigs, birch logs and aged barnwood can all be constructed to create a simple and handsome place for you and your fiancé to say your vows. Once the structure is completed and sturdy, add delicate flowers and flowing fabrics to finish the rustic alter space.

Rustic aisle details are another way to show your style and add unique touches throughout your wedding day. Some of the ideas we love are pictured here and include lining the aisle with birch trunks topped with candles, placing lanterns down the walk way, tying golden grasses onto aisle chairs, and scattering lush leaves down the aisle. You can also define the aisle space and add rustic elegance by placing wine barrels at the end of the walkway and topping them with flower arrangements.

And finally, don’t miss an opportunity to add rustic touches to the actual ceremony. The lighting of unity candles has become very popular among brides and grooms, but you can twist this mainstream ritual into a rustic event. These Birch Bark Pillar Candles are the perfect alternative to simple white candlesticks and will look wonderful displayed in your rustic home for many years to come.
