Themed weddings can be very expensive, but the good news is, you don’t have to go broke to have the rustic themed wedding that you’ve always wanted. Nowadays, there are many alternatives and do-it-yourself projects that you can do to minimize wedding costs. From decorations, venues, and attire – your magical rustic wedding is just an arm’s length away.
Dress creatively – Many brides and grooms are going non-traditional by skipping the heels, ties, or suits. For example, brides or grooms go for either canvas sneakers or men’s cowboy boots to add some uniqueness and personality to their weddings. Rustic weddings are all about intimacy and comfort, so this allows couples to get creative with what they’re wearing.
Pick your rustic themed venue – You can always rent a nice place for your wedding, but the beauty of going rustic is that you don’t have to put in so much effort when it comes to decorations. You can choose a barn, a garden, or a beautiful spot in a forest for the wedding or reception.
Seek inspiration from Pinterest and YouTube – There are countless instructional videos and blogs about simple projects that you can do for your rustic themed wedding. From table setup ideas to signs and wedding arches, the inspirations are endless if you know where to look.
Burlap decorations – Burlap is a cheap, versatile material you can use to give your wedding that pastoral feel. From burlap table runners to chair laces, cutlery holders, and garlands – the options are countless.
There are never enough string lights – What’s a rustic wedding without string lights? These cheap and easy-to-get decorations can make a huge difference on the mood of your wedding. Give your big day a homey yet elegant atmosphere by incorporating string lights.
If you’re overwhelmed by the price tag of a big, traditional wedding, consider going rustic for your big day. Not only will it look amazing in your photos, but a rustic atmosphere creates a warm and intimate environment that is truly magical.
