Designing a Rustic Wedding

Rustic weddings are becoming a popular wedding trend. Combining a few elements of nature to an elegant affair is all it takes to create the romantic and earthy wedding of your dreams. Let these ideas inspire your rustic wedding.

Décor for Rustic Weddings

Rustic weddings call for earthy elements. Bring the outdoors into the mixture and into your romantic event. While it isn’t necessarily country, it is most definitely about natural textures. Wedding centerpieces are the perfect way to create rustic weddings. Bring your theme to life with your centerpieces. Flickering candles with melted wax, wood slices for charger plates, oversized floral arrangements with lots of greenery and wood farm tables can pull off the theme perfectly. Lantern centerpieces are perfect choices for rustic weddings. They can be surrounded by flowers or exist alone.

Attire for Rustic Weddings

In the absence of a formal jacket, consider a dress shirt with a vest. Accent your cuffs with wooden cufflinks. Go with a tie or without, but wear the boutonniere to match your bride. While rustic weddings are not all country, country weddings can be rustic. Polish those cowboy boots and wear those tweed fabrics and suspenders. Crown the bride with a floral wreath of a circle cut veil. Simple wedding dress silhouettes with a vintage flair and beautiful spring bouquets create perfect rustic weddings.

Ideas for the Cake

Let the cake crumble show through the icing for a rustic wedding. Keep it semi-naked and contrast the cake color with the icing. Add wild flowers, fruits and nuts to your design to match your theme and season. Display the cake on a log platter for the finishing touches.
