With all the concern about the economy and the environment, many people are rekindling a closer connection with nature and revisiting simpler ways for hosting their weddings and wedding receptions. People are looking for different and unusual places to be married. And although there is always a segment of the population that opts for lush and luxe, more brides are planning outdoor weddings in barns, meadows, backyards, wineries or city zoos.

Ideas for Your Own Rustic Wedding

Colors: Color trends this year merge nicely with the return to rustic weddings. Hues from nature, such as ambers, fresh, bright greens, creme brulées, bronzes and coppers, are popular right now.

Food: Serving local, specialty foods—like foods coming from local farms—are a perfect way to reconnect with the local setting.

Flowers: For a rustic event, instead of one major centerpiece, people are opting for multiple pieces that create a sort of landscape. Choosing complementary elements of varying heights, textures and colors creates a bridge to the natural environment in which the event is set.

Table Setting: Opting for wood or wood-toned chairs adds to the rustic feel. Linens with flowers, leaves or vines embroidered into the fabric add a touch of the outdoors.
