Mason jars are staple items when it comes to rustic wedding centerpieces, but since this decorative accent has seen more than its fair share of the spotlight in recent years, it's perfectly normal to want to branch out if you're looking for something a little more unexpected. The good news is that rustic wedding centerpieces—and rustic wedding style in general—aren't limited to just one look or design. There are so many ways to achieve a laid-back, country-style aesthetic, whether it's by adding wildflowers to your centerpieces, using burlap table runners, displaying candles in mis-matched vintage jars, or going all out with greenery and bare wood tables. We're sharing some of our favorite ways to decorate your rustic wedding tables for any wedding season or color palette (with or without a mason jar). 

Here are 30 unique rustic wedding centerpieces to bookmark right now.

Daisies & Pearls

A Rustic Affair

A burlap table runner will instantly bring rustic style to your centerpiece, so you can balance it out with floral arrangements that are slightly more traditional. Low, loose arrangements in ceramic pots straddle the line between classic and laid-back. 

Tulips and Twine

In this case, less is definitely more. For a modern rustic wedding centerpiece, all you need is a trio of candlesticks (we recommend wood or brass) and vases with floating candles. Add a few touches of greenery to complete the look.
