The mass appeal of the rustic country wedding theme this year

This spring is all about rustic country weddings and here are some great tips to help you create the perfect back drop for your special themed wedding in 2014. No matter if you plan to wed in the next few weeks or if you are in the early stages of planning your 2015 spring wedding, the rustic country theme is a classic vintage choice that has grown in popularity exponentially over the last decade.

As couples experience a yearning for a more traditional wedding experience and the country theme taking on a far more chic persona, there are many aspects that every couple wanting to achieve the perfect wedding environment for their guests can adapt and apply in order to make the ideal setting for their reception. The beauty is that you don’t need to apply the rustic country theme to everything as even small scatterings and accents can really create a rustic vibe.

Great news for any couple trying to stay to a set budget, ironically as once upon a time rustic weddings were associated with ‘shoestring weddings’ where decorations were created cheaply from items such as hessian sacks made into bunting and decorative pieces, twine and other naturally abundant materials used widely in day to day life in the countryside.

These same materials, hay bale outdoor seating areas, hessian cloth, oil lanterns and more that now create huge appeal among soon to be wedded couples all go together to be what is considered as fashionable, thanks to our re-connection with nature and the chic attraction of the rustic theme as a sure winner in wedding fashion circles.

Here at UK Wedding Favours we have, for almost 20 years, we have been at the forefront of wedding favours, wedding decor and all the bits in between that can really make the most awe inspiring finishing touches to your magical day. Our recently updated traditional country wedding section provides a great selection of easy to order decorations for both venue and table, in addition to bouquets, bridal tiaras, rustic wedding invitations and of course the most beautiful wedding favours that offer a truly unique finishing touch to your 2014/15 rustic spring/summer wedding.

May the only butterflies you have this spring be inspirational decorative wedding ones

As we all know, getting a butterfly or two in your tummy is completely normal as you reach the final stages of your wedding day preparations and as spring is upon us what better than to celebrate your upcoming day in a fresh spring themed manner.

Butterflies are gorgeous, romantic and delicate creatures that are loved across the world for their beauty, symmetry and of course their transformation from caterpillar into a flourishing and unarguably stunning sight to see, in more ways than one sharing the same attributes as two people coming together and joining as one in holy matrimony.

Adored by both children and adults alike, the butterfly represents many things, a free spirit, opulent beauty and a wonderful, enlightening transformation or change; in many ways the same feelings and displayed emotions of a newly married couple!

So with any happy couples preparing to tie the knot this month, the butterfly is a brilliant point of interest, even in the final stages of your wedding planning. Much can still be done to incorporate butterflies into your big day, from accents on your dress or bouquet to table decorations and venue banners, to a host of additional accessories too!
