Spring and summer is just around the corner and sets up the perfect setting for a country and rustic inspired wedding. Simply incorporate jute, twine or raffia into your wedding decorations for an instant rustic vibe and the best part is, they work with most colour palettes. Here are five easy ways to use raffia and twine throughout your wedding.
1. Raffia and Twine Centrepieces
An eye-catching centrepiece usually ties in the overall theme so this is a good starting point when using raffia or twine. Stick to your chosen string and pair with a bunch of colour matching flowers or a loose bundle of greenery for a wild garden effect that’s still chic and refined.
2. Raffia and Twine Bridal Bouquets
Raffia and twine may not come to mind at first when thinking about rustic bouquet inspiration, but it’s all in the detail. Hand-tied with flowers that looks like they’ve been plucked right out of the garden, raffia and twine not only adds a rustic appeal, they also show off the boldness of the flower arrangements.
3. Raffia and Twine Aisle Decorations
Instead of using satin or organza ribbons, tie small arrangements on chairs down the aisle or use raffia around mason jars and hang for a surprisingly elegant look – that makes a big impact.
4. Twine and Raffia Bomboniere
Bomboniere and party favours tied with Baker’s twine, jute string and raffia is definitely the way to go to create a rustic and relaxed style. We particularly love the honey jars with raffia and macaroons with jute string.
5. Table Settings
This collection of designs really proves how pretty and versatile raffia, jute string and different coloured Baker’s twine can be. Your options are almost endless when creating table settings, from the contrasting colour of the Baker’s twine to the simple, yet elegant design of the floral napkin featuring raffia.
