A rustic wedding theme is all the rage these days and many people are planning rustic weddings. So if you have your heart set on this theme, then how do you go about planning it? Luckily, there are many great wedding planning tips out there to help you plan the wedding of your dreams. And, if you are on a budget, these rustic wedding planning tips will help you to make the most of every penny you spend. In this article, we’ll tell you some rustic wedding planning tips for you to use.
Outdoor wedding venues are ideal for a rustic wedding idea because they lend themselves perfectly to being outdoors and to being natural. This means you can take your entire theme in to consideration when choosing the decorations and the location for the ceremony and reception. One idea is to pick a natural setting, such as a wooded hillside or a beautiful field. If you re planning an outdoor wedding venue, then choosing a wooden venue, such as a rustic barn, is the ideal setting.
Of course, if you are on a tight budget, then you can always plan an indoor venue. An indoor venue can be as charming as a wooden church or as elegant as a stately hall. Many couples these days are opting for indoor venues over outdoor venues because the indoor venues allow them to plan their wedding festivities around a particular theme. Here are some more rustic wedding planning tips to help you plan an indoor venue.
A great idea for an indoor rustic wedding theme is to give your guests rustic wedding favours. One great idea for rustic wedding favours is to give your guests plastic key rings that you can make yourself out of Styrofoam, which is easily accessible at any craft store. This will also be a great idea to thank your guests for coming to your reception and for taking the time to come and visit with you on your special day.
Another way to incorporate an outdoor rustic wedding theme into your summer wedding theme is to have a summer garden wedding. For this type of wedding, it’s important to make sure that the venue has enough room to move around freely. If your venue isn’t quite large, then you might want to consider either designing your own venue or asking a local landscape designer to help you design a lovely outdoor garden setting. You can either get married in this garden setting or you can choose to simply have your guests eat at your venue’s restaurant.
To complete your rustic wedding theme, it’s always fun to use some traditional wedding colours. Naturally, when you’re planning a summer wedding, then the most popular colour to choose are those that are either golden, silver, cream. These colours will make your guests feel as if they’re at a fair. To give the effect that you’re having a wedding in the woods, why not add a touch of autumn to it by using pale and gold coloured bridesmaid dresses with a light dusting of sparkly little fairy lights. To add that final touch, why not have a scattering of pinecones and autumn leaves placed all over the venue.
Speaking of your wedding cake, how about a beautifully decorated cake made from freshly picked organic flowers? A simple cake made from a local baker’s sugar-free vanilla frosting with seasonal fruits like peaches, plums, strawberries and apples will be absolutely beautiful and completely appropriate for a rustic wedding. For the bride’s cake, why not have a delicious apple crumble cake made using organic, fresh ingredients. To top off the cake, why not have a simple glass of homemade wine to complement the elegant dessert. You could even use a simple recipe or add some flavour to your homemade wine by giving the guests some fresh seasonal fruit to eat while enjoying their dessert.
Wedding planning can be a lot of fun, but it’s important that you keep your focus on the important aspects of your special day. If you plan well enough, you can reduce costs while at the same time creating an equally beautiful and unique setting by choosing a rustic wedding theme. The more time and planning you put into researching what is available, planning your guest’s outfits and picking the right decorations, the better the results will be.
