Bridal Style: Rustic Romance with a Country Kick
Country chic style takes center stage when you pair your favorite brown leather cowboy boots with your beautiful bridal gown. Boots are a signature accessory for a country loving bride, but the rest of this look is simply elegant.
Rustic weddings are totally trending and we love the look of brides in boots too! Here are some tips on how to get that country inspired look, perfect for a barn wedding.
For a barn wedding, we love a simple gown with lots of volume in the skirt! A full skirt leaves plenty of room for your boots to fit under your dress. You’ll be comfortable twirling around on the dance floor and guests will get a nice surprise when they get a peek at your shoes.
An elegant bun adds an air of romance to this casual wedding style. Just because you’re having a casual laid back wedding, doesn’t mean you can’t dress up a bit – you’re the bride after all.
From sleek, to relaxed, there are lots of ways to pin your hair back and away from your face. Add a little glitz with a headband or hair clip that coordinates with your dress.
Style Tip: For an outdoor wedding, an up-do will keep you cool while you dance the night away.
If you’re wearing a statement piece in your hair, stick with simple jewelry. A formal dress at a laid back wedding doesn’t need much accessorizing. You don’t want your jewelry to overwhelm you; you’ll shine on your own!
We’re seeing a lot of emphasis on the eyes and cheeks on country brides this season. Smoky brown eye shadow adds the perfect amount of drama to this look. Finish with a nude or rosy pink lip and you’ll be set.
Style Tip: Even if you’re wearing nude lipstick, have someone keep it on hand for touch ups throughout the day so you’re sure to look fresh and flawless.
Go rustic with wildflowers or romantic with roses. A monochromatic bouquet in ivory or deep purple is perfect for a Fall wedding on a farm. We are seeing a trend toward bouquets including herbs like mint and rosemary, and lavender and wheat too. They add unique scents and textures that will make your bouquet unforgettable to both you and your guests.
Style tip: Wrap your bouquet with burlap or lace to tie your entire rustic romantic look together.
