This is the right theme for you if you're having a barn wedding. Here are additional design elements that you can add to your overall rustic terracotta wedding.

Wooden tables are the most important elements. It can be made from oak, cedar, or walnut. Combine it with rough linen texture, greeneries and soft, muted colours.

Add flowers. It's best to keep the contrast widely visible. Opt for bright, white flowers as much as possible.

Varying glassware, candles, and geometric lamps all make a warm, stunning combination.

If the rest of your decor is quite neutral and simple, make fonts and lettering styles bold and fancy. This creates a contrasting ideal for terracotta weddings.

Any rustic-inspired theme can also be mixed with a dash of vintage vibes. You can improvise with old, classic props as focal points.
