Style Story: Rustic Elegance, Invitations by Dawn - Sponsored Post

August 25, 2014
Rustic elegance is a lot easier to pull off than you might imagine. It's all about mixing rustic, homespun, elements with romantic, elegant details. The wedding invitation you send will surely say a lot about the style you're going for. So be sure to choose a rustic wedding invitation with an elegant flair to set the scene and let guests know what to expect. Invitations with leaves, wood patterns, and vintage styles are perfect for introducing your rustic wedding. And my personal favorite is this invite by Invitations by Dawn.

Incorporate handmade touches in creative ways! For example, you could use wood slices as escort cards like I'm sharing here! Looking for a fun way to entertain your guests during the reception? An old fashioned popcorn bar would be completely fitting for a wedding like this. Gather up old wooden chairs in different styles and finishes for your outdoor ceremony seating. Or why not cover bales of hay in old quilts or pretty fabric?

I love the idea of long, family-style seating for receptions – guests will be able to mingle with everyone around them and it allows for easier conversations. Burlap and lace: The two fabrics couldn’t be more different. That is, until you bring them together at your rustic wedding! Layer lace on burlap for a decorative look. Or line your reception tables with burlap instead of traditional linens. 

See how easy it is to bring your rustic, elegant wedding to life? Once you get started, the ideas really are endless. So what are you waiting for? Start your hunt for the perfect wedding invitations and rustic decor for your special day.
