Ask Maggie: Rustic Wedding Gifts


RWC Reader: I read your blog everyday because not only am I planning my own wedding (a country backyard wedding) but I am the maid of honor in a wedding that is 100% rustic chic. I would love to buy my best friend a rustic wedding gift to go with her rustic wedding theme. I was hoping that you could point me in the right direction for some rustic wedding gift suggestions.

First off, I love that fact that our blog inspires all parts of the rustic wedding world and of course I have millions of ideas for the perfect gift for a bride and groom who are planning a rustic wedding. In fact, I think I could post all day with suggestions but to keep things under control I have selected a few gift ideas from the heritage brand, Whispering Pines who have been outfitting second homes and the rustic lifestyle for over 25 years!

State Pillows

These pillow have been a go to gift option for me for countless engagement parties, weddings and bridal showers. What I always do is give two pillows, the state the bride comes from and state the grooms comes from. Not only will the couple keep these amazing hand embroidered pillows as beautiful keepsake but they are a great thing to add to as the couple moves or changes their location.


Vintage Style Lamp & Lampshade

A classic standard from the vintage trading post these vintage style postcard lampshades are the perfect addition to the couples new home.


Birch Serving Pieces

Made by an LA based artist, these birch serving pieces are so cool that no couple would be disappointed. What I love about these items is that they can be personalized so it adds that extra special touch!


Rustic Wedding Home Decor

 These are just a few more of my favorite items that any couple would be happy to get in the mail as special wedding day gift. From the bear mirror to the camp style bedding to the twig “home” sign, you can’t miss with one of these styles.
