Burlap Wedding Idea's


Burlap Banner by Nana Montana
It's summer and love is in the air! This wedding season, we at The Felt Store would love to showcase a few chic wedding ideas for all of you Bride-To-Be's. Burlap is the perfect accent for an elegant rustic motif. With wedding pieces simple enough to Do It Yourself, you'll see that the possibilities are endless with burlap!


Bouquets
Every Bride needs a bouquet. Burlap is so versatile and allows for a range of looks and style. For a simple yet sweet look,use the burlap as an accent to wrap around the bouquet. It gives it a rustic look without taking away from the flowers itself. For those of you who want to take the southern belle theme and run with it, why not make your bouquet entirely of burlap? It's a beautifully unique idea, and allows for a great keepsake!

For The Table 
Burlap also allows for great table décor. We love how naturally chic the table runner is. And those burlap rose center pieces - so pretty! The best thing about using burlap for table décor is that it is so simple to make yourself, and also quite cost effective - simply buy a couple yards and DIY!

Chair Embellishments 
With tables come chairs, and we adore the simplicity that the burlap gives to accent dining chairs.  Tying the burlap ribbon in a bow around the chair definitely proves that less is more!

Invitation and Card Holders
We really love how the burlap ribbon turned an ordinary bird cage into a beautiful card holder. The invitation shows us how a little bit of burlap goes a long way.
