Monday Mood Board: Elegant Rustic Wedding Styling…
You can’t plan a wedding these days without running into blog posts and Pin-boards about planning the perfect rustic wedding. So we are taking inspiration and putting our own take on ‘Rustic’ here at The Wedding Affair, introducing this weeks Monday Mood Board, focusing on ‘Elegant Rustic Wedding Styling’ and how you can adapt it into your own luxurious wedding.
The actual definition of ‘Rustic’ in the wedding industry relates to the great outdoors. Couples who have rustic weddings may choose to opt for an outdoor ceremony, or a barn for your reception. But of course this is completely up to you as a couple!
Rustic weddings are known for being creative, filled with organic textures, personalised details, heart warming momentos, each one should be individual to you as a couple.
Take inspiration from the outdoors by incorporating lots of foliage and florals. The best way to do this is to look at your venue options then speak to your florist and event stylist as to what they can do with the venue. You will be pleasantly surprised at how well Event Stylists and Floral Designers can change a venue to a blank canvas to something truly unique and personalised!
Another idea when speaking to your event stylist is to see what weird and wonderful props they may have, old fashioned chairs and tables, combined along with stunning floral displays and backdrops will truly wow your guests! Who said that a Rustic wedding had to be the same as everyone else’s?
Be inspired by wild untamed florals to delicate wall displays, don’t be afraid to add touches of glam, such as hanging chandeliers. This adds another element to your wedding as it creates a stark contrast between the natural element and the luxurious element that you would get from say a more classic wedding theme. For a summer wedding why not try out a pastel colour palette? This can be used from your flowers to you and your brides maids dresses.
For a more rustic dress why not go for something a bit different, but a trend which is becoming very popular in designers? When purchasing your wedding dress why not try on ‘Two Pieces’ instead of the traditional dress? Charlotte Balbier has designed a stunning collection of separates which would be fabulous for your Elegant Rustic Wedding.
