Rustic Wedding Ideas and Inspiration

This must be our favourite wedding theme and our brown kraft stationery fits perfectly into this category. The word Rustic conjures up the countryside and a simple, natural pared back style. 
Here are some of our top tips for creating a Rustic Wedding.

Natural Elements

By using lots of gorgeous wood, twigs, feathers and twine you really can set the mood for a rustic country wedding. Wood slices are still very popular and can be used as place names, to stand table decorations on (as well as the wedding cake) or table number holders.

Hire a Barn

Instead of holding your reception at the local hotel why not investigate local barns or village halls? Once you have secured your rustic venue see if you can source some wooden trestle tables,
mis-matched chairs and strings of fairy lights and bunting.

We love this burlap bunting, click here to find out how to make something similar.
Fresh Foliage


Using lots of beautiful greenery and flowers will instantly give a country feel to your celebrations.  Adding twine and raffia will also add to the rustic theme.  We love woodland plants such as ferns, mosses and Hellabores. The less formal the arrangement the better and perhaps arranged in milk churns, galvanised buckets or glass jars.

Naked Cakes

We love the recent trend of naked cakes!  They are very popular and perfect for a rustic, imperfect look.  Here are a couple of our favourites from Pinterest.

The cake below even comes with tips on how to create a naked cake, click here to read more.

Grey & Pewter Autumn / Winter Wedding Inspiration

Each month we intend on bringing you a wedding colour guide with some inspiration from our friends on Pinterest and our recycled stationery range.

This month we bring you Grey, pewter and silver, which are still proving popular for Autumn / Winter wedding colours.

Sparklers -

If you are considering grey for your big day, why not combine this classic colour with a new level of elegance and chic by mixing in a few modern stags. Colours can be bold with red, or choose dusky pink for a more subtle theme.

Mix a little bit of elegance with modern bright white as your base colour for your theme. 

Grey can also be matched with tones of pewter and silver for a little bit of  sparkle, and are ideal for Autumn or Winter weddings.

When it comes to colour and texture for your bridesmaids - anything goes!  
If you are having a late summer wedding, different shades of grey are suitable, or if your wedding is Autumn Winter, add a little shrug or fur wrap to complete your theme. 

Simple white roses and gypsophila are ideal flower colours to really bring the grey theme together.
With so many talented cake designers out there, why not carry your silver theme through to your cake too?  
We think this cake with the stag on is amazing!


Or ask your cake designer to create a mixture of grey, white and pewter cupcakes.

For the table ...
Add some grey or pewter candle holders to a brilliant white table cover to carry the theme through the whole day. Candles can be real flame or battery operated candles.

We like simple grey napkins with a spring of rosemary and a personalised place name tag.

For a really unusual table planner, purchase an old mirror from an antique centre (or car boot if you are lucky enough to find one!). Spray paint the frame with pewter or silver spray, most home DIY stores sell it in spray cans. Using a white glass marker pen to add your guests table names or numbers, and their names.

Top Tips for an Eco-Friendly Wedding

Here at Razzle Dazzle Rose we pride ourselves on our Eco- Friendly reputation and always strive to maintain this ethos in everything that we do. There are lots of great ideas for making your wedding as environmentally friendly as possible and we thought we would share some of our favourite tips and ideas with you.

An Eco Friendly wedding is actually quite easy to achieve, just ask yourself - Can this be re-used? Has this product come from a sustainable source? Will my wedding leave a large carbon footprint?

Recycled Wedding Stationery

Let’s start with Wedding Stationery, which is very close to our heart. Here at Razzle Dazzle Rose we strive to use recycled materials whenever possible and we are proud to be members of The Woodland Trust Carbon Capture Scheme. We donate a percentage of our sales from card stock to The Woodland Trust for new tree growth in natural woodland.

                                              All products available from

Brown Kraft card is a wonderful product and is made from 100% recycled pulp board. It teams up really well with other colours too and lends itself beautifully to a ‘rustic’ wedding style. Above are some of our favourites….

Use Natural Confetti

There are some gorgeous natural confetti ideas out there, we especially love this biodegradable leaf confetti. This would be a brilliant project for younger members of the family to undertake, it’s easy to do and would definitely make the children feel part of the proceedings.

Other lovely confetti ideas are old music sheets rolled to form a cone and filled with dried lavender – just imagine the wonderful aroma! Alternatively, brown kraft paper cones can be filled to the brim with dried flower petals – very pretty!

Wedding Favours – Give Useable instead of Disposable

We love, love, love these little herb favours! Seeds are carefully wrapped in pages from pre loved books, tied with garden twine and stamped with the variety on the front. They look very rustic and could be grouped in a shallow basket with a sign…perhaps ‘Let Love Grow’

Recycled/Growing Table Decorations

A collection of washed tins can be used for planting succulents or herbs to make an eye-catching table centerpiece. A table number tag can be made from a recycled kraft card and attached to a wooden skewer to give it a bit of height. The best thing is that these little tins can be given away at the end of the day.

Here’s Your Glass For the Night….

This is a great idea for keeping the washing up to a minimum, if paper straws and recycled name tags are used too it’s a sure fire eco-friendly alternative to hiring lots of glasses.

Consider Renting Props

There are some fantastic wedding hire companies around these days and you can source some amazing props for your wedding. These range from photo backdrops to chalk board signs and table plans written on old window frames. All these items can be used again and again for future weddings.

New Botanical Blooms Stationery Range

Hi Everyone!
I'd like to share with you new botanical range of stationery we have been busy working on this week. We've two new exciting ranges to launch this week, the botanical blooms is the first. We will release the watercolour range later this week too! 

The Botanical Bloom stationery range has been designed and printed by us in our Nottinghamshire warehouse, and we think they are perfect for weddings, celebrations garden parties and birthdays too!The brightly floral designs remind us of Spring and Summer flowers which will soon be out in abundance in the UK. 

The luxury stationery range has been printed on 350gm watercolour card, giving a lovely hand painted finish and look and texture. 

The range of coloured blooms matches our brown kraft envelopes, navy and green too...

The full range includes envelope liners too! We have added some luxury card envelopes in navy to compliment the botanical colours...

And also designed them so they look nice with green too...

Personalised menu tags tucked into a linen napkin with a sprig of fern to complete the look...

We've even designed personalised round stickers too, these look great on envelopes.

The stickers can also be used on our gift boxes.

As many of my friends like to receive little notelets from me, I've designed them some in the botanical range too!

 You can really see the textured card on this photo.

And finally, we designed some thank you cards.These will soon be available for Birthday cards too. Why not add a finishing touch by adding a little luxury sage ribbon from too.

All stationery can be purchased on our website here:
