Glam Shoes

If you’re getting hitched at a farm, you might think that cowboy boots or flats are your only shoes of choice. But just because you’re in a rustic setting doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on style, so if you want to rock a pair of fabulous heels on your wedding day, you have our vote! Even if it’s just for your wedding pictures, donning a bold pair of shoes will make you feel like a million bucks — and you can always slip into something more comfortable later on.

Loose Bouquet

Wildflowers, sunflowers and wheat stalks are all popular options for rustic wedding bouquets, but we’re loving this greenery-filled design with irises, honeysuckle, ferns, and lilacs.

Greenery Crown

Flower crowns are always gorgeous, but an oversized greenery crown is an unexpected take on the trend. We’re loving how this fern crown gives off a woodland wedding vibe.

Inviting Tablescape

You don’t need dozens of tall wedding centerpieces to make a statement with your reception decor. A lush greenery table runner packs a punch and is oftentimes more affordable than traditional floral arrangements, depending on the foliage used. This particular design includes ferns, honeysuckle, anemones, eucalyptus, roses, and pitcher plants.

Gold Place Setting

Geode wedding decor has been a major trend for the last few years, and while it’s typically thought of as being contemporary and fashion-forward, this look can totally work for rustic styles as well. Consider agate place cards or using geodes in subtle ways throughout your decor to keep the look from becoming too modern.

Farm-to-Table Menu

Use fresh fruits and vegetables to inspire your farm wedding menu. Side dishes like grilled asparagus and cippolini onions bring a farm-to-table wedding vibe to the menu, while a country-style entrée like braised short ribs keeps the meal relaxed and rustic.

Greenery Boutonniere

We’re loving this unexpected rosemary wedding boutonniere. Not only will this herb bring a touch of aromatherapy to the groom’s attire, but it looks similar to a festive fir branch, making it a lovely choice for a rustic winter wedding.

Buttercream Cake

Naked cakes are a go-to choice for a farm wedding, but there’s nothing wrong with ditching the trend and going for a traditional buttercream confection instead. This cake is classic-with-a-twist, thanks to the off-center tiers and bed of greenery at the base. Fresh lilacs adorn each tier for a sweet rustic touch.

Romantic Updo

When it comes to wedding hairstyles, flowers make everything more romantic. Pair a loose updo with small buds and pieces of greenery for an ethereal look.

Purple Bouquet

Spice up a bouquet of greenery with pink and purple accents. Garden-inspired flowers, such as clematis, roses, lilacs, and hellebores in this bouquet, create a “just picked” effect that’s emphasized by an asymmetrical, cascading shape.
