Farm Weddings Trend Spotter: Kraft Paper

Maybe you’ve seen that brown card stock commonly used at weddings to achieve a rustic feel. Maybe you’ve wondered what it’s called or how you can incorporate it into your own wedding. Today, we’re talking all things Kraft Paper as part of our second farm wedding trend spotter!


That’s Kraft with a “K” and it refers to paper produced through a special kraft process from chemical pulp, leaving the kraft pulp dark and resulting in that brown paper that you can purchase in many forms from card stock to envelopes and gift tags to gift bags. or other big box craft retailers are sure to offer you a number of buying options.

I honed in on kraft paper immediately as I was planning my own wedding. It was exactly the material I wanted to use to help convey that rustic feeling but in a refined way. Our wedding invitations captured the kraft paper feel (shown below) and I also ran to my local art supply store to stock up on a pack of kraft paper which I used for a number of different DIY projects from table numbers and escort cards to social media information and hotel welcome bags. There is just something about kraft paper with white print on it that gives off a beautiful vintage feel and serves a wonderful addition to your farm wedding. Below, I’ve captured a few of my favorite kraft paper uses that can help give ideas for your planning!

I’ll leave you with this kraft inspiration but the options are far and wide and kraft paper – a simple, affordable material – has a way of immediately communicating rustic vintage chic when used as part of your wedding materials!
