10 Must-Haves for Your Country Wedding

10 Must-Haves for Your Country Wedding
August 12, 2017 Riana Ang-Canning

Planning a rustic country wedding but not sure where to start? Big details like time of year and location can set the tone, but it’s the little things that tie the event together and make it your own.

These ten must-haves will be the perfect addition to your special day!

Please enjoy this post from friends of YH&M at King Ranch.

2. Tree stump decor

One of the most beautiful features of the rustic wedding theme is the way nature is incorporated. Sprinkle tree stumps among your decor as coasters or cake stands.

3. Mason jar lighting

Mason jars have a way of making everything feel country and cozy. Put tea lights in them to light up the night! If that’s not your style, they also make great glasses or favor containers.

4. Cowboy boots

These are a western wedding staple! They’re the perfect footwear for bridesmaids or groomsmen, but they also work well as decor.

5. Bonfire

If your country wedding is outside or has field access, having a bonfire is a great way to relax at the end of the night with your guests. It’ll bring back camping memories and presents the opportunity to make s’mores!

6. Hayrides

This transportation option fits the theme much better than a traditional limo. Bonus: let your guests go on hayrides during the reception. It’s as fun for adults as it is for kids!

7. Wildflower bouquets

Using a bouquet that could’ve been plucked from your garden will be fitting for this ode to nature.

8. Burlap decor

Burlap can add just the right touch of rustic simplicity to your decor. It’s also incredibly versatile – check out these 10 ways to use burlap in your wedding.

9. Flannel bridesmaid shirts

Wearing matching outfits while you get ready for the big day makes for a great photo opp. Plus, button down shirts allow you to change without ruining your hair and makeup.

10. Wooden signs

Direct your guests to the dancing, bar and dinner areas with painted wooden signs.
