Those snickers are turning into a big fat smile now.
So you’re concerned about the cost for a dreamy rustic wedding? No worries, we’re about to show you some of our dearest budget-friendly details that you can totally DIY and save a ton. Just think of mason jars, wildflower arrangements, antique bird cages, and everything you’ll love for your special day.
Rustic Wedding Decor Ideas
First of all, if you’re going to marry in a barn, go all the way and transform the venue into a beautiful countryside heaven that everyone will never forget. We adore the idea of a flower wreath as a decoration detail; it’s so on point with the theme. For romantic lighting, string lights and candles are your best friends that enhance the dreamy vibe.
More and more colorful flowers are welcome, especially on top of that classic white fringed table runner. Using different table runner for each table truly adds a cozy and comfortable feel to the scene.
Decoration idea: Use sheer fabric as a part of the decor plus it helps to cover the sides of the barn.
Rustic Wedding Table Decorations
Let’s be honest, wedding tables are where the most intimate conversations between guests are happening, and good food seemed to help either.
What we’re trying to say is, you want to make a lasting impression for your guests, for them to remember this special occasion just as much as you do.
Here are some of our favorite wedding table settings that you can copy to amplify your overall wedding decoration.
This naturally glowing wood table is just the perfect base for a natural-themed table setting. You can see that the formal dining setting is softened by replacing the glass with cute drinking mason jars.
Use a burlap table runner. Decorate with assorted vintage bottles filled with greeneries and perennials. What a chic and cute setting, don’t you think?
Table decoration tips: You can replace those bottles and flowers with small pots of colorful succulents.
Bring the tables outdoor and let the guests mingle with the trees. Place the table under the tree to give some shades.
If you fancy this look, we recommend using a slightly heavier purple material for the table cloth so it doesn’t get blown by the wind. Decorate the table with teapots for a vase. You can also add an antique tiny shelf as the centerpiece.
Table decoration tips: You can go with no table cloth for a more casual and cozy look.
Elegant Wedding Decoration Ideas
We love how this table decoration looks so romantic and elegant with all the colorful pastel flowers along the table.
You can combine different sizes of tree slices as the base for the flower vases; chic and natural. The table is lined with dusty blue burlap table runner, but you can always change the color with your own preference to perfect the overall setting.
Table decoration tips: For a little vintage flair, use vintage buckets as a flower vase.
Rustic Wedding Reception Ideas
Okay, let’s have a moment of silence to appreciate this scene stealer. Who would’ve thought that a barn can be a very romantic place to set your dream wedding reception table?
We adore how the glass top reflects the string lights from the branches on the side and illuminates the whole table. You can steal the elegant idea to replace table runner with a reclaimed wooden plank. Place a candelabrum in the middle for the centerpiece. It truly is the epitome of country elegance.
Table decoration tips: Use tin cans filled with small flower blooms for a sweet addition to the centerpiece.
Rustic Wedding Chair Decorations
Now that tables are all set, let’s move on to the chairs. If your table is using wood chairs, or at least with some wood element, you can amplify the feel by decorating the chair with a natural fabric like cotton canvas. Tie it to the back support. You can then add a stalk of flower for a pretty detail.
Chair decoration tips: Burlap and sprigs are a great alternative.
Rustic Wedding Centerpieces Ideas
When it comes to wedding centerpiece decoration, nothing screams rustic more than tree slices.
Combine wooden vase with mason jars and a vintage bottle filled with flowers, on top of a larger tree slice for an adorable centerpiece. For a more romantic touch, place a few tiny glass candles to illuminate.

A playful wedding centerpiece with tree trunks and vintage water can. Your perfect country-side wedding decoration is all about displaying your creativity and decorative imaginations. So nothing is actually off limit here.
You can add faux grass and a couple of small pebbles on top of the trunk, a handful of wildflowers, and a small candle for unforgettable pretty details.
Wedding centerpiece decoration: When you add details to the centerpiece, think of items that remind you of a country life.
Rustic Wedding Aisle Decorations
One of the highlights of a wedding ceremony is seeing the bride walking down the aisle in her beautiful bridal dress.
This is the reason why it’s why we think the wedding aisle needs to be decorated to perfection. For a romantic wedding aisle, place tree trunks and place fresh flowers in a mason jar with burlap and lace ribbon.
Wedding aisle decoration tips: Replace mason jar with vintage teapots or tiny barrels.
Wedding Ceremony Decorations
Vintage buckets with sunflowers are another simple and darling alternative for your wedding ceremony. A couple of vintage wooden barrels would mark the bride’s entrance perfectly, especially on outdoor settings. For fun and playful signage, a standing old-fashioned chalkboard is all the rage these days.
