Use a rustic ladder as a photo prop when taking your wedding photos. Take turns standing on the ladder while your partner stands beside it. The different heights will create a more interesting and dynamic photo. It is also a great way to show off your wedding dress. Using a rustic ladder as a photo prop requires no set up and is easy to move ensuring you’ll have the best possible angles.

Wedding candy buffets have certainly grown popular over the last couple years. It’s no longer enough just to have a candy buffet. You need something more visually appealing. Take a rustic ladder and slide planks between the rungs. Now you have a surface to place candy jars. While it does look amazing the only thing to consider is how low and high you place the jars. You don’t want to make your rustic ladder candy buffer inconvenient to use.

3. General Decor
