For many couples wanting a more laid back, comfy ambiance to tie the knot in, the trend towards rustic barn weddings has been a hugely popular option! And with the natural beauty of wildflowers and woodsy elements thrown into the mix, why you have country charm aplenty—from bridal party attire all the way to the reception decor and favors. Who knows? With these inspiring ideas we’ve gathered, you just may opt for a barn wedding yourselves!
Rustic Gets a Touch of Wildflowers and Woodsy Elements
1 – No prettier way to set the mood than with a bridal bouquet of wildflowers, of course! This colorful mix of meadow-lovely blooms, berries, and foliage featured on All the Beautiful Things is an absolute charmer, don’t you agree?
2 – Transform a rough-hewn barn into a delightful reception venue with all-white table settings, just as this real wedding featured on Green Wedding Shoes did. Love the contrast with the stone walls and wooden beams.
3 – Fitting wedding favors for this theme would be quaint little packets of flowering seeds, like these shown on The Lane. For a DIY touch, you could personalize the kraft paper packaging with your own stamped graphics and letters.
4 – A lovely cake idea via 100 Layer Cake shows how you can play up a topper of fresh forest blooms with the gorgeous grain of a wooden cake stand. Simple but swoon-worthy!
5 – Vintage frames from antique shops or thrift stores would make a fascinating outdoor backdrop. Not only could you hang them from the trees, but you could string fresh flowers or stretch dainty lace across their openings, as in this photo by Matthew Morgan (via Girly Wedding)!
6 – Nothing like a fun outdoor photo booth, complete with zany props, to keep guests entertained and capture pretty cool keepsakes for your wedding album! This example we discovered via Celebrations at Home has just the woodsy air we were looking for.
7 – For your dessert buffet, more of those tree stump/wood chip stands are just the thing to set off each sweet treat in barn-wedding style! A real wedding posted on Green Wedding Shoes provides this charming example.
8 – Allow your darling flower girls to don the wildflower look, too, as in this image from Grey Likes Weddings. Who would blame them for pirouetting in delight over their floral crowns and tulle dresses?
9 – Walk down the aisle (or meadow path) in a wedding dress that’s pure rustic romance. Seeing this dreamy vision in taupe lace on The Excited Bride, we knew this would be the perfect bridal peg!
10 – Vignette-style centerpieces suit this rustic theme just perfectly. Take a cue from this image we found via indulgy, showing a casual grouping of vases, bottles and crockery holding snippets of flowers and foliage. Sweet!
