Made popular a few years ago by what was called an “anthropologie” style wedding, vintage rustic weddings now have become popular choice among brides and grooms. Less “fussy” than other wedding themes, inspiration for a rustic, country or vintage wedding can be found in a number of places, most notably, nature itself.
From the shabby-chic-style wedding to the more flea-market-style wedding, a rustic wedding can be particularly stunning during the winter months because these weddings showcase the natural beauty of their surroundings. Mixing unexpected seasonal elements with elegant neutral details, with a hint of sparkle and sequins, can create a winter rustic wedding that is full of surprises!
Rustic winter wedding ideas include:
• Layers – One of the hottest reception styles involve layering uber-luxe textures, such as velvet table linens or sequin overlays. If that’s more dramatic than you would like, consider using texture in smaller doses, such as a velvet napkin wrap or embroidered velvet chair back.
The tables aren’t the only place to use layering effectively. The bride can layer herself in lace paired a white cape of faux fur while carrying bright red roses in a eye-popping red and white color scheme.
• Woodland motifs – Deer, antlers or branches make for an amazing centerpiece, especially when paired with a classic evergreen wreath, or even soft, dusty rose and ivory flower centerpieces. Or, go back to basics and look to natural wintry greens, whites and ivories. Pair lush white blooms with leafy green accents, then add dusty accents like blush and sage for a subtle twist on an otherwise neutral palette.
• Winter cake trends – One popular look for winter wedding cakes is pure white, with clean lines, and featuring sugar flowers, such as oversized magnolias or a cascade of bright red anemones. Adding the shimmer of metallic, like silvery pearl beads or edible shimmery silver sugar, completes the winery ambience. A cake like this deserves to be put on a pedestal, specifically, a stand trimmed with fresh evergreen or a Lucite platform filled with sparkly silver ornaments or sequins.
• Natural elements – Use pinecones and succulents in your flower arrangements. Calligraphy engraved leaves make simple and elegant place escort cards. Display table numbers white-painted pumpkins or bronze painted gourds. Wrap vases n bark for table centerpieces.
