Your wedding day is the most important day of your life, so if you have something special in mind, make sure you plan well in advance and reap the benefits on your special day.
A unique wedding theme can make your day unforgettable for both you and your guests. It is the ultimate opportunity for the bride and groom to showcase their personalities and love for something special to them. For a rustic-themed wedding, think countryside with lace dresses, wild flower bouquets and rustic decor.
You have many choices for a rustic-themed wedding: barn and farm weddings are extremely popular, as are lakeside or meadow weddings. The choice is endless no matter where you live, with venues such as the Forest of Dean wedding hotel venue set in the stunning beauty of this wonderful part of the country. When travelling to the wedding, what could be more rustic than a horse-drawn wagon or trailer carrying the bride and bridesmaids together, thus reducing the carbon footprint? Wedding invitations should be on recycled paper or you could try making your own personal invitations. Rustic wedding gowns are beautiful in lace, chiffon and bohemian styles, and don’t forget the vintage era. The wedding bouquet is purposely imperfect, looking as if it has just been plucked from the garden, using peonies, asparagus ferns, wild flowers and ruscus.
Choosing your menu can be fun, as a rustic table is essentially a buffet station which can be hot, cold or barbecued, or even spit roast. Guests can be seated on long tables draped with colourful tablecloths and decorated with vibrant coloured wildflowers. You can greet your guests with chalkboard signs with menus or any message you wish. The beauty of a rustic wedding is its unpredictability, making distinctive differences come together in a delightful way.
The outdoor setting is the easiest way to get that rustic feel incorporating nature and all its beauty. With venues such as a Forest of Dean wedding venue, the location becomes an important feature of making your day simply perfect.
Using nature as the inspiration and the cosy candlelit ambience of your venue, your rustic wedding day will be perfect, giving you and your guests fantastic memories for the rest of your lives. You really can’t beat a rustic wedding.
