Burlap isn’t just for beanbag races anymore. Burlap has been a huge wedding trend over the last year and continues to stay strong in the industry. Natural color tones – big in blush and soft pinks, rustic or vintage style, or even greens in the garden style – you name it these themes will call for texture and burlap seems to be the best bet. Here are some of my favorite inspirations.
I posted an article this week on Wedding Signs (CLICK HERE TO READ POST); they are extremely popular especially with the wedding styles we just spoke about. I love this burlap ceremony sign because it sets the tone for your entire event. Easily made with a sharpie, a piece of burlap, and a friend with great penmanship.
Here is another gorgeous ceremony altar. The draping is soft to go perfectly with a rustic or vintage theme – hence the ADORABLE programs. If you are doing more of a modern green wedding, the burlap fabric can be pulled tight to take on a more contemporary look.
Speaking of programs. I LOVE these DIY programs enhanced with a binding of burlap. Really on-point, and it couldn’t be more on point with the metal mail container they sit in inviting guests to pick one up before they go to the ceremony site.
This boutonniere is too cute. Feather, buttons, lace, and of course our feature texture BURLAP! It is very simple, elegant, and a hipper way to dress your man’s jacket. Burlap can either go as a base to the boutonniere or the stem of the bout can be wrapped as shown below…
I certainly wouldn’t leave the ladies out. Burlap makes a great wrap for your Bridal bouquets, and adorable for your Bridesmaids – I love the button embellishment on the Bridesmaid bouquet wraps – Nice touch!
This Flower Girl bucket is too precious. The beauty of burlap is that the texture is such a neutral color, you can use as little or as much of it as you wish. This Bride dressed up her Flower Girl bucket/basket on the inside with petals and at the base of the bucket.
Our featured look is these burlap petal cones. These are for your guests. When they arrive they pick up a petal cone, when you are announced MR. & MRS. and you are walking back up the aisle, your guests flower you with petals. Burlap and lace seems to go hand and hand.
Another great way to find your table number is by using patchwork on the burlap linen. Here the patch is the number “3″ also found in burlap. The only trouble with burlap linens is that you can only use them once… burlap unfortunately can not be cleaned.
Burlap table runners are oh so popular this year. I love how this runner is tied with twine on the ends. You can head down to the fabric store and get burlap by the yard. Consider a fabric store that carries large rolls where you can buy several yards.
This burlap cutlery holder is super cute. Your napkin no longer has to be the centerpiece of the plate, consider using this cutlery holder and putting your napkin off to the side or under the plate hanging off the edge.
Because burlap is often now taking the place of ribbon on several elements of decor, consider burlap for your cake. You may consider placing a backer on the burlap and not applying the burlap directly to the cake to avoid shedding.
– THE END
