One way to really ensure your wedding stands out from other weddings is to consider rustic or vintage themed wedding ideas. The internet is abuzz with rustic wedding ideas, ranging from vintage suitcases to DIY centrepieces to repurposed or upcycled dresses. Some brides are either the modern type where everything is new, shiny and store bought and others are willing to DIY more for their wedding to ensure their wedding has a more personal and vintage flair to it. Having a rustic wedding theme doesn’t mean you need to be low budget. It simply means your theme is unique, personal and individual to you. The possibilities are endless! Let’s have a look at the ways you can incorporate rustic wedding ideas into your wedding.
An Up-Cycled Wedding Dress
What bride doesn’t want to feel like a princess on her wedding day, and what better way to do that than to wear a dress no one else will ever have the same of. An up-cycled wedding dress is a great way of incorporating a rustic theme into your wedding. If your family doesn’t have an heirloom wedding dress, consider second hand options and then take the dress to a skilled dressmaker who can customise the dress to suit your tastes. You’re guaranteed a unique one off design that compliments your overall wedding theme.
Home Grown Bouquet
To further compliment your unique wedding dress you could create your own bouquet with home grown flowers. Perhaps an Aunt or Grandma has an amazing garden and is willing to share their flowers for on your special day. With some home grown flowers and a few supplies from a craft store you can make a gorgeous personalised bouquet. An added bonus is that family members are often thrilled to have contributed to your wedding in a small way.
Don’t have any nice flowers? That’s ok, there’s a range of alternatives from button bouquets to paper mache bouquets. The benefit of not having a flower bouquet is that the bouquet can be kept forever as a special keepsake of your wedding day, and a craft session with your bridesmaids is a lovely way to prepare for your wedding. Incorporate some cupcakes, coffee and crafts and you’ve got yourself a great afternoon making bouquets.
Rustic Centrepieces And Place Cards
There are endless possibilities when it comes to rustic wedding ideas. Centrepieces and place cards are somewhere you can really let your individuality and flair for vintage inspiration shine through. There’s no rule book that says each centrepiece and place card needs to be identical, so why not create individual centrepieces per table and place cards per guest.
If one table is comprised of family members and their background is in farming, consider a small piece of old farming equipment as the centrepiece. If another table is a group of old school friends consider a centrepiece relevant to your school memories together. Your friends and family will love the personal touch and it’s a guaranteed conversation starter amongst your guests.
Personalised place cards are a very thoughtful touch to add to your rustic wedding. If your budget allows for it, consider a personalised passport wallet for a friend who likes to travel, or an engraved silver spoon for an Aunt who would love the opportunity to add to her spoon collection. This shows you’ve thought about each guest individually and could save you on bomboniere gifts.
Vintage Photobooth To Capture Timeless Memories
As you can see, there’s a world full of rustic wedding ideas just waiting for you to explore them. The possibilities are endless. By choosing to add a rustic theme to your wedding you can take full control of the decorations and stamp your wedding with your personal touch. What better way to capture that than with a photo booth?
Your guests will love the opportunity to let their hair down in the Photo Booth with our range of rustic props, creating memories and photos to cherish for years to come.

What better way than to thank your guests for attending your wedding than to send them home with some gorgeous themed photo strips from a photobooth.
