Updated on October 8, 2012

Rustic Weddings... Everything you need to know!

Rustic weddings are gaining popularity, but what makes a rustic wedding? Your wedding doesn't have to be held in a barn to be "rustic". There are several things you can do to give your wedding that rustic feel, even if you can't have a barn for your venue. Remember, it's the little things that make BIG impressions. Below is a growing list of great ideas for your rustic wedding. Do you have an idea of your own? Please leave your feedback in the guestbook below and I will get your idea added to the list. The most important thing about planning your rustic wedding is... HAVE FUN!

Invitations

Your wedding invitations and save-the-dates are the first thing that people will see, so you need to be sure to set the right tone from day 1. With today's technology, you have endless options of invitations and other coordinating stationary to choose from, so why choose something ordinary? Below are a collection of some of the most popular & unique rustic wedding invitations that I LOVE. If you have a good, high-quality photo of your wedding venue, you might even consider making your own invitation using that photo as the background.

Color Palette

Your color palette can say a lot about your wedding theme. For a rustic wedding, get inspired with color palettes of spring wildflowers, autumn leaves, or summer sorbet. Below I have included images of some of my favorite rustic color palettes. For more inspirational palettes visit my friends at design-seeds.com.
