Are you interested in celebrating your country ties, but with a decidedly elegant kind of wedding reception? If so, you may be struggling to master the mix between elegant and rustic. Fortunately, here at Texas Old Town we know a thing or two about the timeless appeal of rustic décor, and how to marry that with a host of styles, including a more sophisticated, modern look. Here are just a few of our favorite ways to infuse elegance into rustic-themed wedding celebrations!
Skip the Burlap and Go with Lace, or Linen
Burlap has long been a favorite material to show up at rustic weddings, and we still love it at country-inspired celebrations. But if you want to create something a bit more polished, why not consider using a crisp linen or antique lace instead?
From wrapping vases to table linens, fabric can be a great way to set the decorative tone at a wedding reception. You can also use fabric to create photo backdrops, or as chair covers., and it’s often a relatively inexpensive way to create bold impact.
Naturally dyed linens are both on-trend and yet timeless choices, while if you really want to create visual interest, you could consider something truly unique and unexpected, like a richly colored satin for tablecloths or napkins, or a glittery fabric for a makeshift photobooth!
Juxtapose Fancy and Farm-Inspired
Another great way to create an interesting and updated rustic tone, is by mixing formal pieces with less fussy décor. For instance, pair nature-inspired wildflower bouquets with mercury glass vases, or pair more pricey blooms like peonies and roses with simple canning jars or even tin cans.
Use aged wooden pallets painted with ornate calligraphy to lead guests around your reception venue, and mix fanciful goblets and glasses with mismatched vintage dinnerware.
Choose a Wedding Venue That Is Cozy and Classic
Of course, your wedding venue will be one of the biggest choices you make when it comes to your wedding’s overall sense of décor. So make sure you choose one that can help to create the look you want.
