Decorated lanterns

Use lanterns of all shapes and sizes to make guest table decorations outstanding and authentic. Decorate them with flowers and leaves to make a pretty centerpiece during the day.

For safety reasons, use a LED tea light to create a warm ambiance in the evening. Or you can add two or three different size candles around your decorated lantern.

DIY project: The wedding arch

The wedding arch is one of the simplest structure to build.

Arches use to grow wine grapes and other climbing plants have to be made of a solid material like wood or cast iron to support the weight. They have a visually interesting structure and cost 200$ or more.

A simple and plain wedding arch cost about 20$ to 40$. They are usually sold with no decorations.

Therefore, you can create your own decor based on your wedding theme, colors, and personal taste.
Common materials use to make a country wedding arch are lace, burlap, bark, branches, foliage, flowers etc.

There are tons of possibilities to make a cheap but elegant looking arch.

One lovely and unique alternative to typical decoration materials is this handmade macrame curtain.

When displayed on a log arch like in this image it really enhances its natural bohemian style. This arch decor is minimalist and easy to make.

This rustic country fall wedding ideas list would not be complete without this romantic all natural element.

In my opinion, the arch that represents best a rustic wedding theme is one made with vine, branches or logs. It’s a great way to save time and money. Since it’s beautiful in itself, you don’t have to hide it using lots of decorations to have a gorgeous rustic wedding arch.

Plus, if you have a backyard, it’s one of the rare elements you get to keep as a tangible souvenir of you wedding day.

How to build it

Does the idea of building your own wedding arch sound appealing but you have no idea where to start?

The following video from The Cedar Workshop shows you all the steps to make a log wedding archway. The part 1 video explains what you need in terms of material, how to work with the logs and assemble them. The second part shows finishing steps.

I really liked it and the result is worth watching.

    Seeing this gives me mixed emotion. I’ve been through a failed marriage. If I ever get married again with the right person. This is exactly what I wanted to give for my other half. I know right well that the relationship is the most important but hey, some nice memories to cherish over time isn’t bad thing too.
