Wedding Invitations

No wedding can start without sending wedding invitations and since they need to match the rest of the wedding, burlap and lace can come in handy. All you will need is a burlap and lace roll as wedding decorations and of course your wedding invitations. Just glue a burlap over the invitations and lace over it, and tie it down with a jute twine. Simple as that!.

Table Runner 

Another great and interesting way to make your wedding look rustic is to add a burlap table runner. All you need to do is to order a burlap table runner and place it along the centre of the tables. You can place it both directly over the table or over a tablecloth.

A table would not be complete if there is no centrepiece. Whether a jar, a case, or a bottle, burlap can do wonders and turn them into the most beautiful rustic centrepiece there is on the planet. Just with a little bit of imagination, you can turn a simple jar into the most appealing wedding centrepiece. All you will need is a burlap roll, lace, and of course flowers. Just wrap the burlap and lace around the jar, place the flower in it and that's it. Place them over the burlap table runner and make them glow even more by adding several tea lights around it.
