A country or ranch-themed wedding is a great opportunity to go green! Using rustic, all natural, elements in your wedding décor is simply, easy, and elegant.
Incorporate eco-friendly elements to your country or ranch-themed wedding by using touches of burlap. Burlap is an all-natural material and one of the most environmentally sustainable fibers you can use! Consider using a burlap aisle runner or in various table decorations that foster a rustic-chic look!
Mason jars are a cost-effective, charming way to spice up your outdoor reception. Create a firefly effect by using soy tea lights inside reusable mason jars to illuminate the night at an outdoor reception. The jars will make for rustic, eco-chic home décor once the big day is over!
Including natural and organic elements to your special day is the first step to making it green and ultimately lowering the carbon footprint of your wedding overall. These unique cedar table numbers are made from naturally harvested cedar trees. These unique pieces will create a warm, welcoming environment for you and your wedding guests!
When hosting a country or ranch themed wedding, the real show-stopping pieces are a combination of accented details. Use a collection of thrift-store or refurbished materials and collections of accessories in order to pull your country theme together. Consider throwing gingham patterned blankets over hay barrels to create extra seating or using picnic baskets filled with baked goods and mini bottles of wine as centerpieces.
Party favors, invitations and save the dates are all opportunities to create unnecessary waste. Instead, send your guests a note about your wedding by using sustainable materials! These customizable horseshoe magnets can be used as favors, invites, or save the dates!
