I’m always amazed to see how many people purchase their autumn or fall wedding invitation stationery early in the New year. This year I have noticed a lot of people purchasing invitations with a royal blue and yellow color scheme so that inspired me to design a new rustic burlap and wood wedding design that features a royal or cobalt blue ribbon image with a bright yellow sunflower.
I decided to try to design something that uses a brighter shade of royal blue paired with a pretty yellow sunflower. Rustic weddings are still going strong and I think as long as there are barn wedding venues and simple outdoor settings that someone will always veer towards the warm and carefree feeling that sunflowers exude. I think the cobalt blue or royal blue and yellow sunflowers wedding theme is so perfect for a late summer or early fall wedding. There is just something about those dog days of summer that makes me think of sunflowers and hay and all things country. So, for anyone not quite sure if they want to go full-on autumn wedding with all the fall leaves and darker colors, this color scheme may be more to your liking. Even if you end up getting married on an overcast day, the bright yellow and blue will keep things lively and sunny looking.
The other things I like about a rustic burlap and sunflower wedding is the affordability of it. There are so many ways to save money on this sort of theme and you don’t need to be very handy to pull it off and still have things look like it was all professionally designed. With a little pre-planning, you could easily take care of most of the flowers and centerpieces yourself by planting your own sunflowers or asking someone you know if they would plant some for you to use. That would certainly cut down on a large part of the flower and bouquet budget. With this rustic sunflower wedding theme, I think the more casual and easy-going things look, the better. So throw some sunflowers and baby’s breath in a mason jar, wrap a royal blue ribbon around the neck, tie a small wood heart to it that has “Fall in Love” written on it, and there you have some awesome and affordable centerpieces that match your wedding theme. Same with the bouquets and boutonnieres: some sunflowers, a few accent flowers in blue, white, or cream, a bit of royal blue ribbon, twine, or burlap ribbon, and you’ll all look amazing.
I also think that burlap goes perfectly well with sunflowers and the whole rustic look. It is also very affordable to purchase for use on your decor, favors, and anywhere you need a little rustic charm, like over your cake table, over an old barrel that holds your favors, or as a table runner on your reception tables. I wanted to use the simulated burlap pattern with a warm wood pattern that brought out the brown tones in the center of the large yellow sunflower image I used. I think the bright royal blue ribbon contrasts nicely against the browns and yellow. The look was completed using a painted golden yellow wood-look heart with the words “Fall in Love” printed on in brown in a modern calligraphy type font. Even with a rustic design, I always feel compelled to bring in a bit of elegance to the wedding design, so for this one, I used an ornate brown scrolled frame on the back side to surround the wedding invitation wording. The wording is a mix of brown and bright blue and there is another sunflower image at the top and a decorative ornament that breaks up the main wording from the reception information.
