Burlap Reception Details

If burlap suits your style, then it’s perfectly appropriate for not just your ceremony, but for your wedding reception too!  Regardless of where your destination wedding is taking place, there are lots of tiny touches and big ways you can weave in the fabric.  From the invitation (we love this idea of a belly band or invite wrapped entirely in the fabric), to favor sacks in the fun fabric, you can you lots of burlap or just tiny touches here and there!

Beyond just the paper details, why not name your tables with burlap numbers?  Wine bottles, candles, or tent cards, all make magical additions to your wedding reception centerpieces.  You can go a step further too and opt for burlap table linens, adorn your chairs with burlap trimmings or even wrap your florals in the fabric.  Love how relaxed it makes your wedding look!

And of course one easy way to work in burlap is through gift bags!  Source local totes in the theme or create custom bags and fill them with local goodies from your destination wedding location.  Whether you trim your table, light the night sky, or adorn your wedding cake, get creative with burlap as an alternative destination wedding decor idea!
