Create the Perfect Wedding by Oriental Trading

Wedding season is just around the corner, and we have many friends and family members getting married this year. It seems as if there is a wedding invite in my mailbox at least twice a week lately, and all these weddings have me reminiscing about my own wedding.

When we got married 12 years ago we were in our early 20’s and paying for most of the wedding ourselves. Our budget was very tight, but we weren’t letting that stop us from getting hitched. I purchased most of our favors, supplies, and decorations from Oriental Trading, so I guess you could say we had a Wedding by Oriental Trading!

Want to see what Ben and I looked like 12 years ago? We were practically babies back then!

We have discussed renewing our vows in the future, and when we do I will use Oriental Trading once again for our 2nd wedding supplies. I’ve been browsing the wedding ideas on Oriental Trading, and I love many of the table settings and decorations. There are so many great ideas to incorporate for any season, indoor, outdoor, any setting.

I’m a huge fan of rustic themed weddings and plan to go with a rustic theme when I renew my vows. Burlap speaks to this country girl’s heart, and I’m in love with so many of the ways to integrate burlap into a wedding in any season.


Planning your own wedding?

If you love burlap as much as I do, you can find everything you need to recreate these looks for a Wedding by Oriental Trading.

  1. Burlap flowers wrapped around the cake or around a centerpiece
  2. Burlap paper lanterns mixed with various white and silver lanterns
  3. Flameless candles wrapped in burlap and lace ribbon for a beautiful centerpiece
  4. Ruffled Burlap Garland
