Rustic wine barrels are all the rage right now in the wedding industry. From outdoor ceremony sites to barn weddings or vineyard, country chic themed receptions and anywhere in between, wine barrels will add a touch of nostalgia to your wedding decor. As a follow up to my post about a lovely vineyard wedding, here are some of my favorite ways to incorporate wine barrels into your wedding celebration.
If you know anything about us at Alexan Events you know that, given the chance, we will put flowers on every available surface. Wine barrels are much more substantial and make a great alternative to the pedestals that typically mark the aisle entrance or frame you while standing at the altar.
Place singular wine barrels around your reception site to act as cocktail tables or other small utility tables. For the afternoon reception in the summertime you will definitely want large market umbrellas to shade your guests and these wine barrel cocktail tables make perfect stands without extra bases getting in the way. I love the idea of using a wine barrel as the cake table with just a simple greenery garland tucked around the base.
Wine barrels with a simple wooden plank or old door on top make excellent tables or bars for the outdoor wedding. As much as we love the look of the rustic farm tables, these wine barrel tables run a close second.
Add a touch of rustic sophistication to your outdoor wedding and recycle these old oak barrels into a chic new trend. Call Alexan Events today and we would love to help you plan the country chic wedding of your dreams!
