How To Choose Your Rustic Wedding Colors

When you think of a rustic wedding, the first thing that probably springs to mind is color.  Rustic wedding colors are usually inspired by nature, and more specifically often feel like fall. Cozy tones of burnt orange, modest blush and even teal are all colors that can feature in a rustic wedding.

Of course, you don’t want to base your wedding theme around a single color. Instead, you want to choose complementary colors that inspire your design choices and create a feeling, known as a color palette. For rustic wedding decor, a color palette of earthy neutrals, inspired greens and a pop of vibrant organic tones is best.

Taking inspiration from warm summer evenings, the autumn leaves, or the fall harvest, look for a color palette that sets the perfect mood for your rustic wedding.

Decorations and Floral Arrangements for a Rustic Wedding

While not every rustic wedding will look the same, there are some features and decor that help set the scene for your big day. No matter where you choose as your wedding venue, the key to a rustic wedding is choosing decor that feels abundant and textural.

This could include floral arrangements at the entrance, wild and wonderful chair decor, or overflowing centerpieces at your reception tables.

Another idea is to take cues from your venue and choose decor pieces that help create a narrative and inspire a warm feeling. For example, if you’re getting married at a farm, don’t shy away from using bales of hay or those bright red wheelbarrows and styling them as decor. Sometimes, the most mundane objects can make for the most unique, rustic wedding decor!

Unique Ideas for Your Perfect Rustic Wedding

No matter whether your wedding is going to be large or small, the purpose of a rustic wedding is to laugh and celebrate with your loved ones. Some of the best ideas for a rustic wedding are those little moments that ground you, and remind you of the real reason that you are there.

Consider a non-traditional entrance to your wedding reception, like riding in on a horse or even a tractor! Slipping into work boots can make for a cute, rustic wedding photo op, as could a barefoot run through the fields. To keep the party going, an outdoor bonfire could also be a great idea for a cozy, rustic wedding.

When it comes to decor, natural and textured elements like twine and raw wood can help enhance your rustic wedding theme. Don’t be afraid to forage for wildflowers or greenery, either!

Rustic Pickup Truck with Floral Decor Ideas

A simple yet effective idea to add to your wedding is to load up the back of a pickup truck with all the gorgeous rustic decor you can find. Consider starting with bales of hay, and then add huge bouquets of flowers and greenery.

Parked near the entrance to your wedding, this will help create a mood of abundance, laughter and style. With all the charm of a farmers’ market in the fall, a pickup truck will act as the ultimate large-scale wedding decor piece and act as the perfect backdrop for all of your guests’ happy snaps.

Add Some Rustic Charm to Your Wedding Ceremony

At your wedding ceremony, you’ll get to say “I do” to your fiance and start the rest of your lives together. It’s also when your guests arrive, making it the perfect time to introduce them to your rustic wedding theme.

Welcome Your Guests with Rustic Wedding Sign

As your friends and family arrive on your wedding day, they will be grinning with excitement to watch you tie the knot. As they make their way into your venue, it’s important to let them know they’re in the right place and make them feel welcome.

While you get ready for the ceremony, a rustic wedding sign is the perfect way to greet them and point them in the right direction. You can customize your sign with your names or just provide a general greeting — whatever feels right for your venue and ceremony.

Our Flower Sign Decor  in Sunset Terracotta can adorn your wedding sign with abundant florals and a rustic color palette. Little details like this help make your wedding day extra special from the very first moment.

Rustic Wedding Aisle & Wedding Seating Ideas

After your guests arrive and mingle, they will start to find their way to their seats. While every ceremony is different, there are usually at least a few rows of chairs for your guests to take a seat and get ready to see you walk down the aisle.

To elevate your ceremony space and add some rustic color, consider adding wedding ceremony chair decor. Our Aisle & Chair Decor in Burnt Orange adds a pop of color with delicate florals, greenery and flowing ribbons. To further enhance your chairs, our Aisle Draping Decor will wrap your ceremony chairs in chic fabric for a cohesive look. This is also a great way to highlight any chairs that are specially reserved for your close family members, like your parents or siblings.
