Rustic Wedding Charm To Enhance Your Wedding Celebration

As a result of rustic style’s unpretentious roots, organic textures and shapes, and natural warmth, it has become as increasingly popular today  in urban areas as it is out in the woods.

For many celebrations and events, rustic decorations and style bring a sense of connection to the past that is hard to resist . They feel honest and unstudied and remind us all of a simpler time. In addition, because rustic decorations celebrate the art of re-purposing, they provide a wonderful showcase for ingenuity in a modern world where so much is virtual.

So it comes as no surprise that over the past several years, rustic wedding decor has grown from a trend into a mainstay theme. Brides are constantly thinking up new ways to incorporate charming homespun details into their days — even A-listers like Blake Lively and Kate Bosworth opted for celebrations featuring lovely rustic accents!

Rustic decor, though inspired by the rural life and farmland, isn’t restricted to the countryside. City brides can also embrace natural materials to add warmth to urban venues. Try offbeat, woodsy aisle decorations or use Mason jars filled with tea lights as centerpieces for a rustic-meets-luxe effect. Mix your rustic wedding accents with luxe touches for a truly modern look. We love the idea of topping picnic tables with gold-painted champagne coupes and vintage candlesticks!

Here, from weddingbells, are a few wonderful ways to make the rustic wedding theme your own.


Flower-Filled Candlesticks
