party-ideasIn celebration of the holidays, we’re taking a look at a very special way to ring in the New Year. More and more couples looking for a unique and exciting date for their wedding are opting to wed on New Year’s Eve and party into the next year.

One of the most important components of throwing the perfect New Year’s Eve Wedding Bash is, of course, keep the champagne flowing! If you aren’t interested in serving a full meal, cocktails and appetizers are a wonderful way to keep your guests satisfied all night long.

Want to make the event a little more rustic? Try using traditional lanterns to add a beautiful glow. Placing unique clocks around the event is another way to keep the New Year’s theme, while adding rustic elegance.


Don’t forget to infuse your send off with a little New Year’s glitter. Give guests confetti to throw as you run past or for an even bigger spectacle hand out sparklers… just be sure you and your dress are a safe distance!

Congratulations and Happy New Year!

A Rustic Affair Part 2: The Ceremony

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.
