A great place to begin designing a rustic white wedding is with the ceremony
Set up whitewashed folding chairs in rows outdoors in a field or under a stand of trees. Line the aisles with whitewashed lanterns suspended from shepherd’s hooks planted in the ground. The lights can be filled with flickering candles to create a romantic ambiance for the ceremony. The altar floral arrangements should have a loose and freshly-picked appearance, such as garden roses. Include unexpected natural elements such as lamb’s ear, seed pods, or herbs for a general feeling.
Naturally, the bride will wear a white wedding dress for her rustic theme white wedding. Since rustic implies something that is somewhat rough-hewn, select a wedding gown in a textured fabric like silk dupioni or linen, rather than a smooth and shiny satin. A loose hand-tied bouquet with similar blossoms to the ceremony floral arrangements will be lovely. Handmade wedding jewelry and a simple veil will complete the look. Choose a bridesmaid dress in an understated hue, such as sage, cinnamon, or wheat, paired with handmade wedding jewelry in a contrasting shade.
The bride and groom should give some thought to finding wedding attire that suits the rustic location
Again, there is a way to dress for a country setting that is still special enough for a wedding. In other words, you probably should not wear a tuxedo, but denim overalls are not the right look either. The happy medium can be found by selecting a bridal gown and wedding jewelry that have a handmade flavor to them. Fabrics like linen and silk shantung are dressy enough for a wedding, yet have a rough texture that makes them well- suited to a rustic site. Handmade wedding jewelry with unique features like coin pearls is the perfect accent for a casual bridal dress.
