How to Plan a Rustic Wedding Theme

The best thing about coffee’s aroma is it sends you back to the countryside, and suddenly, you are home. You magically made your way to the old barn in the field where you used to watch fireflies. You are back in childhood as you watch raindrops fall on the windowsill. It is cozy, and everything feels right. It is what the rustic wedding theme is all about.

Woods invented rustic, so it is normal to play around in that same color palette. The color scheme does play a significant role in planning your wedding design and style. Sure, every facet is essential, and that includes the color which set all the pieces together. It does not have to be in one tone, but two focal colors and one that's neutral should do. The color brown gives away a sense of rustic wedding theme on its own, but that does not mean you can’t experiment with other colors. Art is how you integrate yourself into it.

You would also notice how most details are made of burlap; it is iconic if we say so ourselves! Below are some ideas for your ideal rustic wedding theme.

Where to Tie the Knot

From a wedding budget breakdown, the one that consumes most of your cash is the venue. Your wedding location or reception is the core of your wedding design. Every feature gives life to your motif, sure, but your place is what sets the whole ambiance. It is the backdrop of your photo shoot.

The usual weddings with rustic wedding theme are held in places like parks, gardens, and camps. Backyard wedding would give a rustic atmosphere as well. If you can find an old barn, doing it indoors can be as fun as having it outdoors.

Also, to be a speck of being in a vast field will create excellent cinematography for the wedding. The green pastures may turn you into Anne Shirley of Green Gables. Classic!

Laid-Back Wedding Attire and Bridal Accessories

Get that cowboy hats and boots out of your grandmother’s old chest from the attic, and you are good to walk the road to forever—like Taylor Swift 10 years back with her dress and cowboy boots—only yours is The Dress, of course. However, your boots do not have to be brown! Play with colors, show your quirkiness, and most importantly, be yourself.

Your wedding dress can also be those types with laces and elegant beadings then just add the tulle and complement it with vintage hues. You can also opt to look like Fairy Queen in the woods with a flower crown. Make sure the flowers used are small and not with huge blooms.

For the groom and his groomsmen, cowboy hats are the go-to look.

Of course, your entourage should resemble your rustic wedding theme as well. You can have your flower girls carry a basket covered in moss and make them wear crowns of ivy.

Also, you can use burlap pillows as a wedding pillow, or you can nestle your wedding rings in a bird’s nest. When we say, intricate details, this is precisely what we mean.

Flower Arrangement and Decorations

A bouquet for a rustic wedding theme does not have to look neat. It can look a little muddled like freshly picked wildflowers. Sunflowers with lavender scattered on it give a strong rustic appeal as well.

Another idea you can go for is a mini vase or mason jar with baby’s breath in being carried by your bridesmaid as you walk down the aisle. You can do so many creative things with mason jars, just add burlap cloth on it and it can already serve as a ribbon that can serve as your table centerpiece. Also, these mason jars can be used as lanterns. Ah, imagine these jars hanging on the ceiling with some fairy lights on!

More centerpieces idea would be a tree stump with a wine bottle and an etched table number. How about putting the dessert in various tree trunk shapes and sizes? Succulents would give color and zest to your venue as well.

The wooden arc would also look great situated as an entryway to your reception. Remember, add wooden signs for directions if necessary, but do not overdo it.

If you have photo booths, it will accentuate your photos with antler stands for display.

A rustic wedding theme should make you feel relaxed and at home on your Big Day. Now, as the occasion closes, you might want to set up a bonfire, pick up the guitar and sing along with your guests. It should give you a good-old-days feel, and you will surely be overwhelmed and believe us, you are going to cry. But it is going to be a beautiful cry of happy tears. All is good because you and your partner are about to create your own home.
