Do you love the look and vibe of a rustic wedding, but not sure how to bring it to life? Here’s some good news – you can easily have a gorgeous, rustic-inspired wedding without needing to head out to a farm or barn!
There are so many gorgeous venues in and around Pittsburgh that you can easily find a country location to hold the rustic wedding of your dreams – but what happens if you want to stay closer to downtown or already have a venue picked out? It can be as simple as incorporating rustic touches and details to your Pittsburgh wedding ceremony and reception – you can be as dramatic or as subtle as you’d like. Here are some tips for planning a rustic wedding, no matter what your budget is or where your venue is located:
Rustic attire – Depending on what you envision for your bridal look, you can easily incorporate some fun, rustic touches into the bridal party, as well as the groom’s look. Complementing bridesmaid gowns with cowboy boots is one easy way to add a little country influence into the look – or consider a rustic-inspired color scheme for the wedding! If you don’t want to go to rustic for the vows, you can always wear fun attire before and after the ceremony.
Choose a textured bouquet – Rustic elegance is about looking natural and perfectly imperfect. A floral arrangement with plenty of vibrant colors, textures and gorgeous blooms look on-trend, while also appearing effortless – not to mention they add even more beauty to your wedding photographs!
Country-chic elements – Consider implementing a variety of rustic and vintage details to your wedding ceremony and reception. Chalkboard signs highlighting seating arrangements, food options, and even special details are a great touch to any rustic wedding. You can find the best outdoor benches online, order a couple and place them at the ingress. Depending on how dramatic you want to be with the theme, you can always add bales of hay, candles, sprigs of baby’s breath, and dress each table with a beautiful combination of lace and burlap.
One of the best ways to create a rustic-inspired wedding no matter where the venue is, is to remember to bring elements from outdoors into the space – wood and fresh greenery are two great places to start. Complement it with vintage lace and other amazing finds, such as a vintage truck to take you from the ceremony to the reception, and you have a rustic-style wedding that suits any personal preference.
