17 New Rustic Wedding Ideas That Prove Less Is More
From city babes to country girls – rustic weddings are all over our Pinterest boards. This understated and uber cool trend is well loved by brides and the stylish ideas just keep getting better. We’re bringing you 17 new rustic wedding ideas that are laid back, fabulously chic and totally you.
1. Bridal Hair Wreaths
Bridal hair wreaths are a sweet and understated alternative to the popular, boho-chic, flower crown trend that’s taking over the wedding world. Incorporate delicate flowers like baby’s breath and Queen Anne’s lace into your hair wreath for an effortlessly feminine look.
2. Floral Troughs
Instead of floral centerpieces in the incredibly overdone mason jar, how about troughs filled with flowers? These are ideal for a rustic wedding theme while straying away from the stereotypical.
3. Burlap Wrapped Bouquets
Burlap is not only a great option for reception table runners, but it can also be used to put a rustic spin on your bridal bouquet.
4. Barn Reception Space
Besides being the ideal space for a rustic affair, barn weddings come with a plethora of perks! Whether it be the ethereal surroundings, the wide-open reception space, or the romantic atmosphere.
5. Café Lights
String lights add instant charm to your wedding reception! They bring a fairytale element to your special day that will have your guests in awe.
Besides being super budget-friendly, twine can be used for just about everything! Decorate your stationary, mason jars, or even your groom’s boutonniere. Just remember, a little twine goes a long way!
7. Billy Balls
Don’t these little cuties bring you so much happiness? Their vibrant color and versatility are what we love most about them!
8. Long Tables
Even though we have nothing against the traditional round tables for your wedding reception, long banquet tables are much more fitting for an intimate rustic celebration.
9. Neutral Color Palette
You can’t go wrong with a neutral color scheme at a rustic celebration. The combination creates an effortlessly romantic look.
Whether it’s incorporating chalkboards into your photo booth props or providing your guests with a chalkboard wedding program – there are a million ways to use chalkboards on your big day!
Antiques can give that rustic, worn out feeling to your wedding day décor. Try using vintage bird cages, fabulous furniture finds or an antique getaway car – the possibilities are truly endless.
13. Milk Glass Vases
We bet you’ve seen these a few times before, but never actually knew what they were called! Milk vases are the next big trend in rustic weddings thanks to their vintage charm and unique shapes.
14. Organic Centerpieces
Herbs and greenery are great budget-friendly, organic alternatives to the traditional floral centerpiece. Not to mention they look fresh and fabulous!
15. Live Runner
We can’t think of anything more swoon-worthy than a blooming live runner on a long banquet table. Add the element of flickering tall candles and prepare to seriously impress your guests!
16. Handmade Favors
A wedding favor is always so much more meaningful when it’s handmade! Make your own individual bars of soap or mini jars of homemade honey – your guests will appreciate the hard work and effort!
17. Country Cakes
Rustic weddings sure do take the cake in having the most charm – down right to the last detail! We absolutely love the sweet, country look of naked cakes for a rustic celebration!
