Planning a wedding is a big job, and it can feel overwhelming to be a part of that process. For some, the vast, fairytale affair is the way to go. For others, a laid-back wedding in the country, surrounded by flowers and nature, is the best option. If this is what fills your heart with love and excitement, then a rustic wedding may be the way for you to go for your wedding style.

It’s a trend that has done the rounds for many years, but brides need a little inspiration – which is why you’re here! Check out some of our rustic wedding ideas below, and you’ll have your creative wedding-planning juices flowing.

The Great Outdoors

For a truly rustic affair, why not get married outside? You could have a marquee erected, but the actual ceremony beneath the twist of trees and their boughs. It offers an enchanting day with as much natural beauty involved as possible.

Get Naked! (The Cake, Not You!)

A naked wedding may be a thing, but there’s rustic, and there’s nude. Instead of offering guests a red-faced ceremony, get researching naked and semi-naked cakes. These cakes offer a rustic design, and they’re best decorated with natural wildflowers for a down to earth and simple design.

Au Naturale

For the invites, decor and wedding colours, choose natural colours and materials. Popular colours are creams and golds, with some dark greens intertwined. Choose natural materials and wood to display your wedding decor, and draw out that natural and rustic look.

Have A Barn Wedding

For a wedding that embraces the rustic look, choose to have a barn wedding. Set in beautiful grounds, a barn can offer you the rustic wedding you’ve always dreamed of having. At Bredenbury Court Barns, you’ll experience the leading wedding venue in the Midlands, boasting beautiful views, delicious food and drink, and a team who are happy to help every step of the way.
