Can you picture yourself exchanging vows in front of a bright red barn? Do you dream of a first dance under a moonlit sky? Do you envision burlap and vintage lace details for your reception? If so, a rustic chic wedding is just your style! This wedding, designed by Jessie Patton of Southern Sophistication Designs and photographed by Andie Freeman Photography, incorporated 8 must-have details for a rustic chic wedding. Get your checklist ready!
1. A Big Red Barn
Every outdoor wedding needs a rain plan, and a barn is the perfect shelter for a rustic wedding. This barn has a cozy cabin feel for an intimate wedding celebration.
After some photos in the countryside, strike a pose against the side of a barn. The bright red is a nice pop of color for an otherwise neutral wedding color palette.
2. Cowboy Boots
Cowboy boots bring western flair to a rustic wedding. If your style is country chic, have your bridesmaids wear heels for the ceremony and boots for dancin’ during the reception.
White boots for the bride are a unique touch that’s a perfect choice for an outdoor wedding!
3. Delicate Lace
When paired with burlap, lace evokes a romantic feel for a rustic wedding. A lace-trimmed wedding dress seems like the most appropriate option for this wedding style. The keyhole back is absolute perfection!
The littlest lacy details can be the prettiest! When it’s time to throw the garter, a “toss garter” is a nice option so you can keep the bigger one as a keepsake.
Crisp white linens and chic centerpieces add a sophisticated feel. Burlap table runners and chair sashes bring the country flair.
An elegant white burlap rose adds the finishing touch on each plate.
5. Mason Jars
From drinks to decor, mason jars are quintessential rustic wedding decor. This vintage ladder display provides a unique way for guests to be able to grab a glass and head to the bar.
6. Southern Eats and Sweets
This Georgia wedding was catered by a food truck! Food trucks are like portable kitchens, perfect for outdoor wedding venues where a full kitchen might not be available. Guests will have fun picking from the chalkboard menu, too!
Why not give guests options when it comes to cake, too? A rustic chic dessert display is just darling!
7. A Bonfire
As the sun is setting and there is a chill in the air, it’s time to light the bonfire. Offering a s’mores station for a late night snack makes for a memorable end to the evening.
