Rustic or country wedding style is not limited to weddings in rural or rugged settings. If you are having your wedding in a wedding venue in or near the city you can also embrace and celebrate the organic textures, shapes and natural warmth of rustic wedding style.

Rustic weddings are super popular ones, they are relaxing and joyful, they don’t require too much money to organize and everyone feels comfortable and cozy. You’ll need a lot of décor including the smallest details, and today I’d like to inspire you with one of such details – I’m sharing a bunch of ideas for rustic wedding card boxes.

Rustic wedding card boxes can be different, and these aren’t always boxes, you can find more alternatives that catch an eye. Baskets, wooden crates, barrels, milk churns, logs, suitcases, mailboxes – you can get whatever you like! A huge advantage of such boxes is that you can easily repurpose some old thing or renovate it into a card box.

Wooden Boxes And Crates

Wooden boxes and crates are very popular for wedding card boxes. You can take a usual crate and whitewash or paint it and use as a card box. You may also make a wooden box, stain it or leave as it is, or attach your photos to it and get a cool piece. Decorate your boxes with banners and buntings of burlap, with calligraphy, bows and lace. Actually, you can rock a cool wire basket with a handle, too, it’s not wooden but still a rustic one.
