Wedding season is upon us as it generally starts in late spring and continues into the fall, with weddings hitting their highest peak in June and September.

Most weddings take at least a year to plan, so now is the time to start thinking about next year’s wedding decorations and what wedding theme decor you want to use.

This set of three flower market buckets is perfect to hold some country flowers like sunflowers or wildflowers. They would be great to line the aisle and give some country charm as the bride and groom make their entrance.

These three buckets are made of metal and you get one of each size (Sm: 14" x 14" x 17" H), (Med: 16" x 16" x 20" H), (Lg: 18" x 18" x 25" H).  Greenery and flowers not included.

Don't forget to add some babies breath flowers for some more country flair.

Burlap Utensil Holders

Give your wedding tables some rustic flair with these burlap utensil holders. These would look perfect sitting on top of white plates and either a lace or sheer tablecloth with a burlap lace runner.

These come in a set of fifty burlap holders and measure 4 inches x 6 inches each.

LED Curtain Lights

Make your wedding night sparkle with these LED curtain lights. They would be the perfect wedding decor accent to either hang on a wooden accent wall, against a tapestry or sheer panels.

This features 306 icicle lights with 18 strands of light and each has 17 lights measuring 118 inches. There are seven blinking modes and eight light effects.

After your wedding, you could use these lights to hang in your backyard or pergola.


Hanging Mason Jar Lights

Light up your wedding and/or reception with these rustic hanging mason jar lights. Hang these from metal hangers for a more dramatic effect or place them on your tables as a centerpiece accent.

These mason jar lights are great for indoor and outdoor use and are made of thick glass. They include twenty fairy LEDs that are attached by a copper wire that is thin and dainty.

After your special day, you can use these to light up your backyard or use them inside your home to decorate around your fireplace.

Handmade Burlap & Lace Rose Petals

Rose petals are a must for any style wedding and these burlap & lace petals are the perfect touch for your rustic outdoor wedding decor.

This set comes with 300 petals: there are fifty hearts, twenty-five burlap and lace hearts, plus 100 love stamped petals and 100 silver petals. This set is all handmade.

Scatter these petals on the aisle walkway or on your wedding tables. These petals will add the perfect touch of rustic and country.

White & Ivory Chiffon Drapery

These white & ivory chiffon draperies are the perfect background accent to hang on your wedding arch.

Includes two panels of ivory and white chiffon and they measure  27.5 inches wide by 6 yards long. The fabric is washable and wrinkle-free.

Imagine getting married under a floral arbor accented by these chiffon drapes. They will bring the perfect touch of country charm to your wedding.


Wedding Supply Set

Every rustic wedding needs a set of toasting glasses and dessert servers and these are perfect as they keep with your farmhouse wedding theme.

Included in this set are two champagne glasses, a knife, and a pie server, both with a serrated edge. Jute rope complements all pieces and would be great displayed on your cake table.





More Outdoor Wedding Decoration Ideas

There are so many more rustic outdoor wedding decoration ideas that it's hard to pick just a few. It really is all a personal preference on how you want to decorate and everyone will have their own ideas of what fits a rustic chic wedding.

I think an outside bar would be a great touch. You could DIY this using two whiskey barrels on each end and a piece of wood for the base. Place glass canisters and galvanized buckets filled with ice and your beverages of choice.

Another neat idea for your bar would be this rustic open bar sign as it adds some farmhouse style and a sense of humor to your bar.


Whiskey barrels would make a great rustic decor accent to either line your wedding aisle or to decorate the reception area and to display your favorite flowers. I love these as you can use them for your farmhouse decor at home after the wedding on your porch or patio.


Another idea is wooden benches with cushions (of course) and/or hay bales (with rustic blankets or burlap) for your guests to sit on.

This is my take on rustic outdoor wedding decorations that have a rustic-chic style. Have fun planning your special day as marriage should be a fun and loving adventure through life together!
