‘Rustic’ has certainly come a long way from its humble woodsy origins. In fact, when you think of packaging favors for a rustic-themed wedding today, the materials may still have that natural, organic look but the styling can be quite cool and contemporary. So we’re pretty excited to share 5 favor wrap options that have that rustic-chic flair! Whether it’s a wedding in a forest or barn, we’re sure you’ll be inspired to find something right for your special day!
Pretty Ideas You Can Definitely Use!
1 – Fabric, like natural-colored linen, can give your favors a lovely homespun look. This image via The Charity Wedding (attributed to flickr) shows the attractive contrast in textures between the rough linen and the dainty lace ribbon tied around it. Just add a personalized gift tag and you’re done! Love the vintage-look of this packaging!
2 – A simple kraft paper-wrapped gift gets an added dose of charm with this idea we spotted on Summerill & Bishop. In place of the usual ribbon, it’s trimmed with raffia, a bay leaf, and a bouquet garni containing a blend of bay leaves, parsley, and thyme! How’s that for ‘tasteful’ packaging?!
3 – Favor bags made from burlap are so popular, they may seem commonplace. So it’s that ‘something extra’ that you add that will make your bags stand out. A perfect example is this pouch featured on Intimate Weddings, accented with a felt peony with a sweet button center. Love the neutral colors and the varied textures!
4 – It’s actually only the brown color and the string that could make this pass for rustic. But these marshmallow-filled tissue paper cones are just so darn cute, we had to include them! Found via Pocketful of Dreams, originally from Tokketok, these owe their chic factor to polka dots dabbed on with white paint. So simple and sweet!
5 – Muslin is another material with that organic appeal. And when it’s used as creatively as in these personalized favor bags from the etsy shop Clementine Weddings, it can be real pretty! How cool is this coffee motif customized with the couple’s initials?
