With a beautiful barn backdrop, this Nashville wedding reception oozes cowboy-style country charm. Long trestle tables encourage relaxed, convivial dining while the jam jar and log slice floral arrangements feel rustic and homegrown. All set beneath a seemingly endless canopy of fairy lights, this charming country reception theme has atmosphere and romance by the bucket load.
Falling for this romantic, rustic style? Here’s how you can recreate the look for your dream day!
Introduce the glimmering golden light that this reception scheme achieves so well with these gold speckled votive candles. Dot them throughout your venue, from window ledges to table tops, for the most romantic impact (and check out these other romantic reception lighting ideas!)
Choose illuminated decorations to complement the candles – we love these cute illuminated wedding signs! By choosing several similarly toned sources of gentle light, you’ll create the atmospheric wow-factor effect that the canopy of fairylights achieves in the Nashville barn.
Decorative items with a vintage or reclaimed aesthetic are a match made in heaven with this charming country reception theme. Replicate this couple’s old suitcase card station with this pretty hessian cards bunting. Simply hang it loosely above an old trunk or case and you’ve nailed it!
Roses, peonies, hydrangeas – choose the brightly coloured blooms you love and team them with softening sprigs of gypsophila and baby’s breath to get the same dreamy, rustic look. These artificial roses are a beautiful option if your favourite flowers aren’t in season for your special day.
Whether your reception will be rocking trestle tables like this one or their round counterpart, no charming country reception theme is complete without log slice centrepieces! Stand your wedding cake on them, top them with jars of blooms or old whiskey bottles – the choice is yours so you can add your own personal touches and make this country scheme completely you.
