Event Displays That Get Noticed: Tips and Ideas

Plan An Amazing Rustic Chic Wedding Reception

If you're a huge fan of rustic chic decor, you may have been thinking about how you can incorporate the style into your wedding reception. Fortunately, there are several simple things that you can do to incorporate the rustic chic style into your wedding reception and create an amazing event that your loved ones will remember for years to come.

Rent a Wedding Barn

While you can hold your wedding reception in any type of venue, there's nothing that says "rustic chic" like reserving a barn for your wedding reception. Barns perfectly complement rustic chic weddings thanks to their neutral color palette and natural feel. Also, most barns are large enough that you could easily hold both your wedding ceremony and reception in the wedding barn you rent so you don't have to pay to rent two separate venues.

Choose Simple, Fun Props

The great thing about planning a rustic chic wedding reception is that you can often find props to decorate your wedding barn at local flea markets and thrift shops for cheap. Keep in mind, when it comes to rustic chic decor, you don't need everything you have to match exactly. In fact, it's fun to get creative by mixing and matching different materials to create a look that you love. So consider using items such as large tree stumps topped with candles, bales of hay surrounded by pumpkins, and old wine bottles filled with flowers.

Choose the Right Materials

Rustic chic is all about combining various types of textures and materials, but you can't choose just any material. When you're decorating with textiles, you should consider using burlap, linen, lace, or plaid. You can even use a combination of these material types to decorate your wedding barn. For example, adorn simple white linen chair covers with a burlap bow or accentuate your burlap tablecloth with plaid napkins.

Skip the Sit Down Dinner

To make a wedding theme work, every part of your wedding needs to revolve around the theme. So instead of having an elegant sit-down dinner in a wedding barn, you should consider serving a buffet-style meal. This doesn't mean that you can't serve delicious food, though. Serve an array of comfort foods that you would expect to see at a southern barbecue such as mac-n-cheese, barbecue ribs and/or chicken, mashed potatoes, and collard greens.

Planning a rustic chic wedding reception isn't difficult, but you do need to be creative. To pull off the theme, you need to decorate the wedding barn with random rustic-style objects, materials, and elements. Combining them properly takes a lot of creativity. For more information, contact local professionals like The White Dove.
