When designing your own dream day, it's important to remember the value of chic, next-level rentals. (Seriously, gone are the days of plastic chairs and plain white linens!) With cool rental companies and planners out there, it's easy to find a fabulous bar, vintage velvet couch, and chairs you've never seen before. And most importantly: It's easy to find gorgeous rug rentals!
Yes, that's right: the new hot trend in wedding décor involves colorful, Persian rugs (how fun, right!?). This design idea is especially popular with boho brides and anyone looking to create a casual, relaxed environment. And, lucky for those of you in the midst of planning, the execution is simple. All you have to do is find the perfect rug for your ceremony backdrop, a collection of rugs for the aisle runner—or better yet, a grouping that makes the best lounge space around. We assure you that you'll be thankful for the little something extra below as you walk down the aisle (it'll save your pretty new shoes!), while your guests will love a cozy, rug-defined setup at cocktail hour. (We recommend adding romantic string lights and plushy pillows for additional comfort). And if you're creating a grouping of rugs down the aisle or in your reception space, we suggest working within the same color palette. You want the rugs to look like the belong together (no matchy-matchy color scheme here, please) but also feel different, as if they were perfectly thrown together by a design pro, aka you.
Now enough about the how to! Keep reading to see examples of how to re-create this look in your garden, backyard, or poolside setting.
