Rustic Wedding

Down to earth rustic weddings

A rustic wedding is one of the most popular themes at the moment and we don’t think it will be going anywhere soon. A rustic theme gives the bride the chance to be a bit more creative with the decorations and add personal touches to create a very relaxed style.
Items such as wine barrels, festoon lighting, and bentwood chairs are just a couple of pieces that help create the feel and atmosphere of a rustic. With a rustic theme, everything that is old is new again.
Colours that are suitable to use for a rustic theme are rose and dusty rose , light blue ,dusty blue , sage green and burgundy just to name a few.

Create a rustic wedding style with ease with help from our stylists and wedding decoration hire.

What is a rustic wedding?

When you think of a rustic wedding you usually think wooden crates , country flowers , hessian , lace and wine barrels. Typically this style has a country feel and can be held in old barns , sheds , wineries or any old country style venue.
It doesn’t need to be in the country and it is easy to decorate any venue in this particular style with lots of greenery and timber décor.

why choose a rustic wedding?

This theme is very popular as it looks great , is easy to create and typically has a more relaxed atmosphere. It also allows for a more relaxed dress code for your guests if that is what you are wanting. With so many venues in Melbourne that suit this style it is easy to find a wedding venue that has a lot of these elements.
Rustic weddings can be very romantic with the styling , decor and lighting that are available for hire.

Festoon Pendant

Rustic Lighting

When it comes to lighting anything that has warm white colours will tie in well. Think festoon lighting of pendant lighting for best effect to add to the atmosphere.

As rustic weddings tend to be more relaxed they are usually more fun too. To stay on trend hire an acoustic act for earlier on and then maybe a country band to get the party going later on.

Food / Drinks

Wedding format and location will impact your food choice. Country food and wine that is from local suppliers will add to the authenticity. A good old fashioned BBQ is also an option.

Creature Comforts

Rustic weddings quite often have an outside element so it is important to remember the basics. Insect repellent , sunscreen , heating and cooling are all really important.

Back Up Plan

If your rustic wedding is all outside make sure you have a back up plan. Book in a marquee to be on stand by if the weather turns bad. This will put your mind at ease and wont cancel your wedding.
