Over the next few months I will post blogs where I touch very lightly on each of the most popular styling themes and one of my favourite themes is the rustic styling theme which is inspired by the simplicity of country life and references nature and outdoors. A rustic event usually incorporates rustic elements such as timber (lots of timber), metal, hessian and natural more unstructured bouquets and flowers.
Rustic events are usually held, and tend to work best, in venues like barns, sheds, vineyards and outdoors under a marquee or a grand tree, and the reception will usually consist of a sit-down dinner but doesn't have to. Most rustic weddings may have the ceremony and reception at the same location, or on the same property, which is simply beautiful and logistically pleasing.
Some formalities may be present, however, a rustic wedding is typically quite relaxed and laid back, as opposed to being very formal. Couples may choose to have many bridal party members, just a few or even none.
