Wedding trends come and go, but the charm of a countryside wedding has specifically stood the test of time.  No matter where you’re hosting the affair, a country wedding is the place to showcase your love for all things rustic and vintage in your decorations and style. To refine your search, We ’ve rounded up a few of our favorite country wedding ideas, below, to show what you can do with everything from your wedding dress to your bar or wedding invitations.


The most obvious venues for rustic weddings are barns, ranches and farms. These types of venues easily lend themselves to rustic wedding style because of their countryside locations and informal settings. Vineyards, mountain lodges, and recreational parks or campgrounds are also suitable for rustic style.

Color Palette

One thing we love about rustic wedding style is that it’s super versatile. It works with many different color palettes, and each one can help you achieve a different look depending on the decor you choose. For a more “rustic chic” look, you can stick with a softer color palette comprised of pastel hues, such as blush, dusty blue or sage green. Just take one below for example:

For rustic save-the-dates and wedding invitation suites, look for nature-inspired elements, such as wood grain patterns, greenery motifs, and floral designs. Wood-burnt accents, burlap ribbons, and lace belly bands are some of the finishing touches you can add to your invites to complete the rustic vibe.

Rustic weddings opt for more casual and natural dresses because of the informal atmosphere associated with rustic wedding venues. Actually, there’s no stereotype and you choose a country gown according to the wedding style you have: a romantic ruffled one, a stylish vintage one, a beautiful classic one, etc.

Rustic wedding style puts a big focus on handmade details, rugged accent pieces, and repurposed vintage items. Before you choose your wedding decor, you need to decide if you want your wedding to be traditionally rustic or something on trend like a “rustic chic” look.

Rustic chic style is all about creating a setting that’s laid-back yet elegant. This twist on traditional rustic style keeps the fundamental elements but adds romantic and classic details — think loose greenery, whitewashed chairs, muted metallic accents. What we show you below is about how rustic chic style works.

Cake and Dessert

For rustic wedding cakes, we love the look of buttercream frosting, which will give your cake a slightly more relaxed look. Dress up each tier with fresh flowers or greenery, or skip the allover frosting and opt for a naked or semi-naked cake instead. Rustic weddings are also a prime opportunity to try out some alternative dessert ideas — homemade pies, doughnuts, waffles, and even pie pops are just some of our faves.
