In the past few years, we've seen our fair share of rustic outdoor weddings, and there are few details that always stand out. Whether you're gathering your family and friends at a seaside location on a grassy bluff, a charming lake house, or a forest filled with redwoods, incorporating the beautiful natural surroundings into your wedding décor sets a laid-back ambience for your event – even a formal affair.
Earthy green and brown hues can be incorporated with your favorite wedding colors, or stand alone by themselves mixed with neutral shades of cream and ivory. Utlize natural tones in your paper materials accented with delicate lace, and present escort cards or seating charts on rustic materials such as old wooden frames or slabs from tree trunks. Adorn a raw-wood ceremony structure with elegant ivory blooms and verdure, and decorate linen-free wood reception tables with moss, birch bark, or twigs. An outdoor wedding venue really makes a rustic event incredible, but if you must have some sort of covering, hold your wedding reception in a barn with open sides or beneath a beautiful tent.
