Picture the open country side, farmland in the distance, the smell of freshly cut grass.
When we think about our wedding venue, we often opt for a more traditional setting but are we missing a trick here. There is something quite charming about the English countryside, its sense of peace and tranquillity, the sounds of cattle mooing and grazing happily in their fields.
If the Rustic style theme is something you are interested in there are thousands of fabulous ideas to get you on your way!
For a start the choice of homely wedding invitations available is endless, with the use of just quality kraft paper, delicate handmade lace and string, you can create beautiful bespoke invites for your delighted guests. Choices of Butterflies can adorn your stationery, vines and floral motifs run throughout and the birds and the bees are obvious stars of this show.
And this can follow on with all your venue decorations, whether it’s in a splendid Marquee adorned with fairy lights, roses climbing over wooden arches, al fresco banquets and dancing barefoot on cool grass all add to the perfect imperfections of a rustic theme.
If you are looking for rustic ideas, how about using bales of hay for seating? Or decorate a Rusty old wheel barrow and fill it full of freshly cut daises and buttercups, which will bring in the delicate scents of the surrounding fields.
What about Colour? Hues of red, orange and brown mixed with accents of metallic gold foil and deep reds adds to the sense of an autumnal setting or a Silver and Yellow for a spring evening all within the rustic genre. Kraft paper buntings splayed up high spelling out the names of all your guests. How about using chalk boards for your seating plans and menus?
Keeping it simple yet effective is key with this style. Often a rustic charm is thought to be unsophisticated or unrefined but this does not mean lacking romance. It means picnics on gingham blankets under beech tress, walks along sandy beaches in the light foaming waters, forest adventures and hidden meadows.
If this conjures romantic ideas suited to your special day then there are herds of fabulous ideas to get you on your way!
