2. Rustic Cake Stands

As with all weddings, everything lies in the fine details. Choosing a cake stand for your rustic wedding will act as a centre piece and it is a lovely opportunity to showcase your finest rustic tastes.

3.  Light up, light up

At a rustic wedding, lighting is key. If you’re wedding is truly to be considered rustic – an outside reception is usually required. This is usually a barn yard or a garden or a marquee. Lighting in this case is essential – you need to bring the space to life. Choose tea lights and fairy lights for the ultimate rustic feel.

4. The power of the flower

Flowers add delicacy, colour and daintiness to any wedding but they are particularly important at a rustic wedding, where finer details are imperative. Introduce flowers as a bridal hair accessory for the ultimate relaxed chic bride. Include them at different points throughout your reception, such as your table, the arbour, and even at random places. No rustic wedding is complete without flowers.

5. The finer details

Rustic weddings are all about freedom from structure but little details here and there will bring the rustic wedding to life. The beauty of the finer details at a rustic wedding is the ability to make them yourself. Everything can be personalised and made to suit your own taste and tell your own story. Think about things like photo boards, personalised favours and things that you can keep and treasure for long after your special day has passed.
