Take a look at your Pinterest and Instagram feeds and it’s clear that nothing is more on trend in the wedding and events industry right now than simple elegance with woodland-undertones. Rustic weddings are more popular than ever before, with country-chic details popping up throughout the entire year, with more and more couples utilizing reclaimed wood accents in unique ways at their nuptials. The team at Reclaim Everything is well-aware of the amazing merits of salvaged barn wood, and recognize that this unexpected decor feature is a perfect and creative way of adding a touch of “something different” to your big day.
Here are three great ways to incorporate reclaimed lumber into your upcoming celebration!
A custom-built altar or chuppah is a beautiful way to incorporate reclaimed wood at your ceremony. Not only does it create a treasured keepsake to pass along to other family members for years to come, but it’s a wonderful way to utilize recycled materials. The artisans at Reclaim Everything have beautiful beams and boards to work with, or you can make it a true “family affair” by having our woodworkers create an altar using reclaimed lumber and materials from a family structure to add even more sentimental value to your I Do’s.
A simple and easy way to tie in function and theme! Whether creating signs to help guide guests between ceremony, cocktails and reception, or choosing to highlight all the cities your guests traveled from to join you on your wedding day, custom signs of varying sizes are a fun way to add personality to your event. Reclaim Everything, in Northport, NY, has an impressive collection of salvaged lumber to make this simple DIY project a reality!
Nothing could be more eye-catching at your reception than a bespoke wooden table to showcase your wedding cake. A stunning reclaimed wooden table would not only wow your wedding guests, but would be a beautiful and symbolic addition to your home.
