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.

Rustic weddings are not a trend but in fact a style and one that is diverse, heart-warming and so very creative. Not to be confused with a vintage style wedding, but Rustic can branch off into many style niches such as Rustic Chic, a small amount of rustic but with that elegance we love at weddings.
There is Rustic Country, Rustic Vintage and so many other variations. Rustic is all about the textures, fibers, natural beauty, handmade and raw aspects of our world.
