I have mentioned before that home and specialty retailers can be a great resource for wedding décor and accessories. I received an Art & Artifact catalog this weekend filled with items that would make wonderful rustic wedding accents. All it takes is a little vision and creativity. Here are just a few ideas:
Place two of these Arbor Garden Wagons on either side of the arch at your outdoor ceremony. They can be filled with flowers, green plants, or pumpkins, depending on the season and theme of your event. After the wedding, display them in your own garden as a remembrance of your special day. ($69.95 each)
These Miniature Garden Gates would make charming centerpieces. Nestle them in weathered flower pots filled with soil. They can also double as table number holders: print your numbers on cardstock, cut a slit in the bottom, and affix them to the top of the gates. ($39.95 for a set of five) Candles are a classic way to create ambiance at an event, but why not change it up a bit? Replace a few candles with these Lighted Firefly Jars for a whimsical touch. The fireflies are battery-operated and activated by a switch on the bottom of the jar. ($18.95 each or $15.95 for two or more)
Be sure to visit the Art & Artifact website for more ideas and inspiration for your rustic wedding.
