Want to plan a wedding that is both classically beautiful and rustic-inspired? If so, forego traditional country décor, in favor of a more upscale and yet timeless style. To perfectly master the balance of rustic and romantic, classic and classy, mix and match upscale elements with more natural and earthy additions. That way the vibe you create is both wholly unique to your big day, and wonderfully whimsical.
Pick Classic Bridesmaids Gowns with Variety!
Whether you ask all your bridesmaids to wear the same color in different dress styles, or different shades of the same gown (or even mismatched floral prints), adding some variety is a great way to keep your bridal party looking fabulous without being too fussy.
If you want to stick with your rustic-inspired theme, don’t be afraid to choose separates either. An expert tip? Fanciful tulle skirts pair beautifully with country-inspired chambray shirts and cowboy boots.
Pair Your Own Formal Dress with a Rustic-Inspired Bouquet
There are lots of ways to marry a formal wedding gown with a more rustic-inspired bouquet, and the mix of the two can create interest and timeless appeal. Ask your florist about seasonal flower options, which can be both affordable and particularly beautiful.
You should also consider adding succulents, vegetables (yes, vegetables!) or wildflowers to your bouquet for a whimsical and unique flair.
Filler flowers are another casual and budget-friendly way to add rustic charm to your flowers. Who says baby’s breath can’t be beautiful?
Master the Mix of Elegant and Nature-inspired
The key to romantic rustic décor is mixing elegant pieces with more nature-inspired elements. For instance, mercury glass votive holders look beautiful atop tree stumps, while wood slices are a great addition to an otherwise glitzy tablescape.
Simple wooden chairs look extra lovely with satin bows or canning jars full of flowers. And an elegantly decorated wedding cake is perfect atop a vintage metal or wooden cake stand.
