28 of the Prettiest Rustic Wedding Centerpieces

If you're planning a rustic wedding in the countryside, chances are you want that theme to carry over onto your reception tables. Luckily, interpreting the rustic aesthetic with fresh flowers is as pretty as it gets. Earthy color palettes, wooden accents, and unexpected accents, like fresh fruit and vegetables, all help transform floral table arrangements into rural-inspired pieces of décor that are sure to fit your vision—whether you're getting hitched in an actual barn or celebrating in the heart of a city.

Just take the following rustic wedding centerpieces, for example, which all brought pastoral vibes to their tabletops. While no two arrangements are the same, we did notice some overarching motifs that you might want to pass onto your floral designer as you brainstorm your own tablescape's adornments. First up? Transitional foliage. While the rustic isn't always aligned with the autumnal—a rustic centerpiece can absolutely feature summer blooms!—fall shades, like burnt orange, yellow, and ruby red, play right into the style. That's why multi-hued foliage makes for a pretty add. While keeping it all-green can still read as rustic (take this Bloom Babes and Joy n' Company tablescape, for example!) All you have to do is swap out pine or eucalyptus for colorful branches, instead.

But one of the most interesting on-theme accents has nothing to do with a centerpiece's floral components. Ultimately, the vessel you choose impacts the style of the arrangement just as much as its actual flowers. Ahead, you'll discover how different bases, like wooden urns, vintage enamel water jugs, tiny clear vases, and burnished bronze bowls, can call bring your tabletop displays to new rustic heights. Click through to discover all of these bucolic centerpieces—they just might inspire your own.
