10 Foolproof Ways to Add Rustic Romance to Your Wedding
If you love everything from beautiful farms to Queen Anne’s Lace and burlap, you’ve been dreaming of a rustic wedding! It’s easy to add some romantic elegance to any country affair with a few special touches. Take note of these foolproof ways to elevate your rustic wedding!
1. Chic Rustic Signs
Charming signs are cute for displaying the wedding day schedule, sweet quotes or pointing your guests to the right direction. Upcycle an old frame with a little chalkboard paint and sandpaper to distress the edges of the frame.
Pretty chalkboard and wooden signs are perfect for fall weddings and are easy personalized homemade details.
2. Boots Made for Walkin’ (And Dancin’)
Is your style more country chic? Gather your gals and ask them to wear boots to add a little western flair to their outfits.
3. A Scenic Ranch or Farm
It’s all about the backdrop! Set up a flower-adorned arch in front of a beautiful view of the ranch.
A big red barn is always a prime choice for a grand reception.
4. Little Horseshoe Escort Cards
5. Casual Down-home Eats
Serve informal dishes from a food truck so guests can choose what they like. From fried green tomatoes to bourbon peach glazed brisket, a home-cooked menu is sure to please!

6. Hints of Burlap
Burlap brings a dainty touch to the décor, but don’t go overboard! Wrap burlap, lace and buttons around glass mason jars to create a shabby chic vase. Then add colorful wildflowers for pretty centerpieces!
Add a hint of burlap to your chic celebration with “Just Hitched” favor bags filled with caramel corn, a mini s’mores kit or even a cute cowboy boot bottle opener.
7. Versatile Mason Jars
Mason jars are oh-so-cute and practical for favors and décor. Personalize mason jar mugs your guests can use all night!
Mason jars also make fantastic tealight holders. Add dry peas at the bottom of each jar to hold each tealight in place!
8. A Simple (But Gorgeous) Naked Cake
Naked cakes are a huge trend this year. Pick your favorite flavor and add just a few flowers and greenery for a simply classic cake.
9. Amazing Photo Ops
With scenic views and gentle farm animals, the photo opportunities are endless! The bride and groom can snap a few shots with a beautiful horse or pose in front of a white picket fence as the sun sets.
