CANDLES FOR A WARM AND RUSTIC FEELING…
Candles always contribute greatly if you want to create an atmosphere. They create a warm feeling, and also a romantic ambient. Because of this, they are basically an essential part of any wedding, especially if we’re talking about country weddings. Decorators always use them to make the venue more special and more welcoming. Jars are a very cost effective way and a very good looking decoration if you put candles in them. It doesn’t get any more simple and effective than this. You can use them to decorate both interior and exterior.
If you’re decorating the exterior, you can use solar candles. You can also fill jars with water and put floating candles in them. If you’re having a rustic outdoor wedding, you can hang jars from the tree, and put solar candles in them. This way you will get a beautiful and breathtaking decoration. Your guests will love it! You can also paint golden dots on jars, so when you put candles in, you will get a more entertaining and unique decoration. For a more chic look, you can put candles in some pretty vases.

It can’t be sweeter then that!
PIE IN THE MASON JAR
We think that there is not a single person in the whole wide world that doesn’t like pies. This dessert that is universally loved across the world is ideal for serving on autumn weddings. It’s not even odd if newlyweds dedicate a whole table to it, filling it with nothing but pies. Different flavours are a must. Apple pie, pumpkin pie, pie with walnuts or forest fruits are desserts that will satisfy even the most demanding guests. But, what about serving pies in mason jars? By serving them in jars, you will easily achieve a simple but effective look. And if the crust is heart shaped, is there anything better and more appropriate for a wedding? All you have to do is to choose a flavour. You can serve these desserts on a wedding celebration, but you can also put a lid on them, decorate them with a bow and give them to guests as a thank you gift for being there with you on your most special day.

WEDDING DRESS THAT TAKES YOUR BREATH AWAY…
We advise you that before heading to bridal shops, do some research on the internet to find out which models you like the most. This way, you will have a general idea of what you’re looking for when going to the shops. Pick a wedding dress that reflects your daily clothing style. This way you will feel comfortable and confident in yourself. And self confidence is the most important things, especially on your biggest day. You don’t want to feel confined because of your dress, you don’t want, and don’t deserve that on your wedding day. Before going to pick out your wedding dress, you need to set your budget. And you should inform the sales person about your budget, so you won’t lose time on things you couldn’t afford.
Check out the latest trends and of course take the location in account so your dress will fit the wedding theme. With rustic weddings it’s important for the wedding dress to have a easy flow to itself, it can also be decorated with lace, and don’t leave out the veil. Dress could also be in champagne color, it will give a dose of elegance in a rustic untouched nature environment.
FLOWERS- THE UNAVOIDABLE SCENT OF ROMANCE
One of the most important decorative things are definitely flowers. They are also a major staple when planning a wedding. You should always opt for flowers that are in season and affordable. But, because they are in season, the flowers will automatically be more affordable than the ones that are not in season. Be open to all kinds of flowers. Most of them are available through the entire year (roses, hydrangeas, callas…). If you add more greenery, bouquets will be more rich and lavish, but more affordable in price. A nice detail when picking out flower arrangements is to make them more personal.
Although is important to not go over budget when planning a wedding, you should not save money on your bouquet. It will be, alongside your wedding dress, a centerpiece of your photos and will attract attention. Local flowers are a great choice if you’re having a rustic themed wedding. Sunflowers, field flowers and daisies are a perfect choice.
