Set the style – Rustic Wedding Ideas

Over the last few years, rustic wedding styles have become increasingly popular and this makes us so happy as this style is perfect for a barn wedding. We LOVE seeing gorgeous rustic weddings here at Gaynes Park and we also love all the decorations and details that our couples include.

Before we start, we should just take a moment to define ‘a rustic wedding’ and, quite simply, it’s one inspired by the natural world. Super bright colours, sequins and glitter and highly embellished, sparkly dresses don’t really work with this theme so keep everything as ‘real’ as possible. Firstly, think about natural colours and textures as a basis for your wedding. Wood, hessian and cotton contrast with lace and raw silks. Colour palettes have to include hues that you’d find in nature, particularly during the season you’re marrying in, alongside creams and neutral tones. There are lots of natural motifs, patterns and details and this is very much an organic style that should feel relaxed and authentic with an abundance of rustic beauty.

Wooden details also look fantastic on your tables too. You can use wooden slices as part of your centrepieces – stand your flowers on these to give some height and interest or you could even create your own wooden table centres. Logs or stumps with moss and other woodland inspired details look so effective!

For your wedding flowers, embrace seasonal blooms and a ‘just picked’ style. Hang flowers from the ceilings, wrap beams with foliage, use moss on your tables and place a sprig your favourite herb or a single cut flower at each place setting. Finish buttonholes with a twist of twine and let ribbons trail loosely from your bouquet.

When it comes to your stationery, keep it natural. Brown card and paper is perfect and looks super with modern calligraphy. Alternatively, include hand drawn rustic motifs such as flowers and leaves on your stationery to give guests a hint of the style they should expect on the day.

Your decorations really bring your theme to life so, if you can, include plenty of details, right across the venue. Here are some wedding ideas that you might like to add to your list:

Real petal confetti is an absolute must-have. Let guests help themselves from a basket or crate or set out little jars, cones or packets for everyone to take before the confetti shot!

An old ladder and some wooden crates make an excellent feature display. Add framed family photos, flowers, or even wooden letters that spell out your initials and you’ll have a brilliant focal point. Add fairylights in the evening for added sparkle!
