Up for a DIY turn? Handmade weddings will love the up-cycling of this garden fence – talk about a savvy renovation! The natural wood looks fantastic (we have two words for you: woodland wedding!), whether its an outdoor or indoor setting and this rustic themed wedding backdrop is pretty low maintenance (so about as rustic as it gets!). All you’ll need to get it looking perfect is a handy florist who knows their stuff and can dream up some complimentary garlands and arrangements to drape over!
Hessian & Lace
Handcrafted decorations get a lot of love in weddings, namely for the care and attention that goes into making them – creating the perfect sentiment for your day! Truly bespoke, we adore how this backdrop has been pieced together from ribbons of lace and hessian – it’s such a lovely rustic touch! We found this one on notonthehighstreet.com. The neutral tones of the natural fabric work beautifully for any rustic themed day, especially when combined with a little greenery!
Doors To Die For
Old doors within a barn will add to the country feel of the setting, or, you can take them outdoors to create an entirely quirky backdrop in an open space! It’s amazing how an old door, with the right placement, can transform into an amazing rustic themed wedding backdrop! A couple or a trio can be painted to suit your wedding’s colour scheme and decorated with flowers to make the most of all that is vintage and shabby chic!
The Garden Trellis
Wherefore Art Thou Romeo? Channel Juliet out on the balcony, declaring her undying love for her Romeo with a hint of the Shakespearean for your special day. Gorgeously romantic, the garden trellis is a versatile addition to your day, providing both a beautiful backdrop for your wedding ceremony nuptials and a kissing gate of sorts for loved-up photographs later on in the day! This can be easily moved around to take your wedding from the day to the evening and it’ll allow you to make the most of your flowers by reusing this showpiece!
Call It Curtains
For a shabby chic, Parisian boudoir feel, delicately floating curtains to catch the breeze can make a lovely rustic themed wedding backdrop. Use simple linen or gauzy fabric to achieve the perfect drape and open the curtains on your special day! We think that this would be a gorgeous frame for your vows – with just a touch of the theatrical!
Getting married outdoors? Make the most of your natural surroundings! We love the idea of hanging lanterns and flowers from tree branches, using garden twine, to create a magical backdrop to your wedding day. There’s something especially ethereal about having fairy lights running through the trees and glass jars filled with twinkling lights or beautiful blooms! This would transport your guests to another world, creating a stunningly romantic ambience!
