A touch of sparkle here and there to elevate the nature-inspired decor. A rustic glam theme will give your event an inviting atmosphere, something that makes celebrations even more memorable.
Most products/inspirations shown here are available online! This means you might not even need to head out to put this design together!
Rustic Glam Wedding DIY Guide: Here’s how you can do it:
Begin by laying down delicate white satin linen (you can also use nude or champagne *think neutral colors*), then cover with a beautiful lace overlay as the base of your tablescape.
The lace softens the look of the table and adds that “rustic” charm!
Place rattan charger plates for a rustic vibe, followed by gold-beaded glass chargers to add bling to your setting. Add a folded white satin napkin in between the chargers to soften it up.
Bring more glam by using gold flatware paired with gold-gilded glassware, making sure not to overpower the table’s natural elements.
What better way to finish your plating than with gorgeous gold flatware? Feel like royalty while dining in a rustic and chic wedding vibe!
You can use succulent cupcakes as an additional rustic component, which could also double as a delicious party favor for your guests.
For place cards, you can use a mint green color (again, think soothing neutral tones) with white lettering and leaf details set over kraft paper to keep with your theme’s tone.
The most flexible touch to any setup is flowers! They can be the main highlight or the small add-ons to any pursuit of rustic glam.
In this case, you can use classic white flowers. White flowers, such as hydrangeas, tulips, and lisianthus arranged in clear vases of varying heights, plus white candelabras with some inserts of greenery, tie up the romantic feel of your rustic event.
If you’re looking to re-create this wonderful theme for your next celebration or your micro wedding, we have rounded, easy creative tips that you can use to execute this seamlessly!
CENTREPIECES’ VARYING HEIGHTS: You can use regular whites boxes (stuff it with paper to make it extra stable – no one will know!) with different heights as a “riser” to achieve the height variations without using tall vases or bigger flower arrangements.
Add candles in between for an extra romantic feel! Votive candles are the most budget-friendly, but tapered candles add that sexy feel to them!
FAUX FLOWER ARRANGEMENTS: Choose faux flower arrangements with fewer greeneries and more solid white color; this will lessen the “faux” look and photograph better (less light reflection, the better!)
We have suggested white vases with some vintage details to add a rustic feel to the centerpieces!

PLACE CARD HANDWRITING: You can also easily download our free stationery templates below (including wedding invitations, table numbers, place cards, menu, and more!) and use all the templates to easily print them out!
RE-PURPOSING: Most of these products we suggested can be repurposed!
The rattan chargers are easy to stack; also, we suggested gold-rimmed glass charger options.
You can put the candle set and the small faux arrangement on your foyer for added house design.
In addition, we’ve chosen small faux arrangements, so it’s easier for you to move it around the house and not get stuck with big arrangements.
Because these are silk flowers, you can always rearrange them whenever you are changing decor/seasons. Change it up by simply adding other elements to it to match the season accordingly!
Let’s talk about the glassware for a second.
This glassware style is absolutely gorgeous, and you can store them after the event; similarly, you can bust them out on a date night or keep them as a staple at the bar.
The flatware can be everyday used as a “server” or “main” utensil. Above all, they are great as display pieces!
For DIY centerpieces, you can store the finished products in boxes from your local hardware store with rubber non-slip liners for dry centerpieces.
If you are filling up the vase with water, only fill it out halfway through so the water won’t spill while in transit.
Looking for boxes that you can stack will make it easier for you to transport them. Non-slip rubber liners in between boxes will be your best friend to avoid any slipping while in transport.
If you are not able to stack, you can pre-bundle the flowers using pipe cleaners and stack them gently in a box. This way, when you get to the venue, you can assemble, fluff, and set them up easier and faster.
Don’t forget to label boxes and have a “visual” sample of how things are supposed to be set up as a reference.
