Rustic Wedding Ideas

Posted on

rustic wedding ideasWe’ve all been to at least one wedding with styrofoam bowls of peanuts on the tables. We may have even been to a real high-dollar wedding that cost as much as a house.

When it comes to weddings in 2016, all things rustic and reclaimed are capturing the hearts of brides-to-be because the beauty is in the simplicity; incorporating nature and the outdoors into a wedding may remind couples of vacations, of childhood memories, or simply could be for the looks. No matter the reason, we’re delighted to see this trend incorporated into weddings. Whether you just want just a little touch of nature or you want to really bring the outdoors in, here are a few rustic wedding ideas to help you start that dream wedding (minus the styrofoam bowls):
