Does your heart jump with joy when relaxing in nature? Do you love the simple, authentic style? And do you prefer a platter of organic cheeses to a plate of foie gras? Then a rustic wedding is just right for you!
Rustic weddings have a family character, celebrated in old farmhouses, barns or on farms and while the kids whiz about the meadows, the guests enjoy spending time together in nature. Instead of glitter and pomp, many couples craft the decorations themselves, using mainly natural materials.
Wedding dress and accessories
At a rustic wedding dresses made of natural, flowing fabrics, such as linen and silk, come into their own. It is important that the dress fits comfortably and does not restrict movement. If you like something more elegant, you can still combine the rustic style with tulle and lace elements. Classic white is often spiced up with pastel shades of rose or light blue.
For the bride´s hairstyle simple hairdos bring stunning results: romantic braiding or buns with incorporated flowers or a flower wreath fit wonderfully into the natural scenery.
Invitation cards and stationery
Handmade paper with petals or sturdy craft paper goes perfectly with the rustic theme. Simple drawings or pastels of authentic motifs and bright natural colours increase the anticipation of your guests for the rustic flair of your wedding. If you like it playful, attach little tags with wool, raffia or jute twine. An artistic calligraphic font, stamp elements or stickers complete the cards perfectly.
Wedding decoration and table setting
If the location is breathtakingly beautiful, many couples want to keep the decor more subtle. Linen tablecloths, meadow flowers, candles and lanterns and elements made of wood and colorful fabric fit wonderfully in such an ambience. Of course, the best inspiration here is nature itself: depending on the season, you can either combine spring flowers and berries or wheat ears with pumpkins.
The authentic character of rustic wooden crates, straw bales and menus drawn on slate create a dreamlike rustic, but cosy backdrop for your romantic start into your married life!
