If you want a rustic wedding, the best place to get married is the great outdoors. After all, that’s what rustic means: a rural or countryside affair. So, choose a venue that has sweeping lawns, and plenty of flowers, trees and greenery.The best time for a rustic wedding is in the late spring, summer, or early autumn. A cold or rainy day wouldn’t matter much if you’re marrying indoors, but for a rustic wedding, the weather is a bit more important!

The décor is where a rustic wedding really makes its mark. With a rustic wedding, you don’t want to go too elaborate, ornate or expensive. Avoid ‘bling’ and stick with natural, plain and simple decorations. Everything should give off a very countryside feel.

If you’re having a rustic wedding, it’s really easy to make your own decorations. Hessian, burlap, twine, cork and brown paper are all brilliant materials for DIY rustic wedding decorations. Remember that the word ‘rustic’ means plain and simple, so you don’t need to be a craft expert.
For example, mason jars filled with dried flowers make ideal rustic table place makers. Simply tie a brown paper tag with twine to each one, and hand-write the table numbers. Log slices (that you can cut yourself, or buy pre-cut) make great wedding place cards.
If you prefer to buy your décor, there are plenty of rustic themed decorations available. For example, this beautiful Hessian Just Married Bunting.
