No matter the season, a rustic themed wedding always seems to be a great go-to. From muted florals to ample greenery to an assortment of wood, metal, and glass, it offers an undeniably beautiful palette.

But another big part of your big day is picking the perfect wedding centerpieces. And if you’re in the midst of planning, consider adding one of these rustic wedding centerpieces.

1. Tarnished Metal & Pure White Blooms

Pure white hydrangea and roses offer a pristine spin on the rustic wedding. The tall and tarnished metal vases really bring it home, though.

For the slightest rustic touch, incorporate real wood into your tablescape. For example, you can place an arrangement on top of a birch or pinewood slab.

Take the stick idea one step further by incorporating actual branches into your décor. Elevate them with elegant hanging tealights, or even consider spray painting the branches gold or white.

Another way to incorporate mason jars — a quintessential rustic wedding element — is to place fresh buds inside with crystal clear water. The wooden slab and pinecone bring it home.

Not digging the boot idea and over mason jars? A watering can that’s been naturally dulled with time makes a beautiful rustic wedding centerpiece, as well.

16. Antlers

Perhaps one rustic element that doesn’t get enough wedding play is antlers. These look beautiful among pink roses, soft greenery, and tall candles. (Fact: antlers are naturally shed and are collected in the woods. Animals aren’t harmed.)

Another way to use what the earth has provided is to incorporate pinecones into your centerpiece. Try them in a full arrangement or scattered along the table with other greenery.

We see a lot of metal and wood in rustic weddings, but don’t forget about copper. It feels elegant and regal in almost any application.

It can be expensive to buy copper centerpieces, so fake it with some spray-painted mason jars in copper, gold, or rose gold. You can DIY it or buy them premade.

20. Floral Hoop

A floral hoop feels wedding-appropriate for several reasons. First, it’s esthetically elegant and offers an air of rustic charm. Second, it nods to eternal love.
