Whether you're a country girl at heart, or you just prefer a relaxed, back-to-nature vibe over dollars and diamantes, a rustic-themed wedding could be right up your road.
If you're starting out on your wedding planning journey, it's easy to incorporate a rustic theme into your venue, and then build from the ground up - start out with an original barn, heritage building, winery or farmyard field, and add wildflowers to your bouquet and wooden tables without linen. But if you've already locked in the nearest surf club and you've still got your heart set on the rustic vibe, never fear: a few well-chosen decorations and bonbonniere can give any venue the laid-back, rustic country wedding vibe of your dreams.
