Rustic weddings are delightful. They offer the perfect blend of warm, homey finds coupled with natural materials like wood and stone. And no, you don’t need to get married in a log cabin to have a rustic wedding. You can have your wedding at The Grove, a private event space situated in the quaint woods of Parvin State Park.
If you are planning a rustic wedding, here are some of the hottest trends to consider.
Wooden Wedding Signs
Wedding signs are immensely popular because they serve two purposes: they are decorative and they provide information to guests. You can use them to point people in the direction of your ceremony or restrooms. You can also set out rustic Mr. & Mrs. signs along with wooden milk crates. All lettering can be done using vinyl letters or stencils.
Fresh Flower Bouquets
Fresh flower bouquets are bound to add a dash of country charm to your wedding. Choose a soft arrangement of wildflowers or fresh blooms that are wrapped in hemp twine. Not only will the bouquets contain unique flowers but also a fresh, floral scent that puts a smile on your face. Some of our top picks include fresh lavender, sage, herbs and grasses.
Wooden Ring Pillows
If you don’t want to do the traditional white pillow, opt for a pillow made from natural wood. The best part about this natural pillow is that you can engrave it with whatever you want – the names of the bride and groom, Mr. & Mrs., or a meaningful quote. Tie the rings onto the wood using burlap string.
Bring the Outdoors In
A rustic appearance successfully pulls in outdoor elements. You can achieve this by creating a wood or stone panel wall, setting the tables with country chic centerpieces and opting for accents in leather, stone and natural fibers. When you host your wedding at The Grove, these elements are already built into our farmhouse style setting.
Serve a Farm-to-Table Menu
The farm-to-table concept is highly desirable and a great fit for a rustic-inspired wedding. With this menu, your guests will be served food that comes from local distributors and farmer’s markets. The Grove features contemporary cuisine and catering options that come from locally sourced ingredients.
Rustic weddings are more than a trend. They fit in with a lifestyle that encompasses healthy living, sustainable ingredients and natural elements. For a sophisticated, rustic wedding of your own, contact The Grove to schedule a tour.
