What is a Rustic & Whimsical Styled Wedding? Take rustic vibes and fairy tale charm and you’ve got yourself a rustic & whimsical wedding! In general, rustic weddings are the perfect balance between country and vintage but are more relaxed and romantic which give off a whimsy vibe.
I mean look at these two! In a wild flower field overlooking the colorado mountains?
Without a doubt it doesn’t get better than that my friend!
When it comes to typography script font is the best. Having handwritten looking script elements are perfect for this look. Using elements of floral, gold accents, and greenery are great to add onto your menu cards, name cards & even the welcome sign. Your invitation suite in this case is the first taste you’ll give your guest of your wedding theme when they see your invitation suite.
In the hope that you can use some natural components around you for the flat lay photos you want to make sure you bring with you small touches for this experience. Ribbons, your ring boxes, vow books, perfume & even your shoes all can be pieces that tie in this wedding style.
To really get the rustic and whimsical style wedding it comes down to the location. Luckily there are many ways to achieve this look like woodlands, lodges, modern barns , vineyards, country fields. I could sit here all day and name places that work great for this theme!
That is to say! The biggest things you want to look for when picking your venue can include, but not limited to, rustic, romantic & airy elements. If your venue provides or includes these in the first place it is one less thing to worry about. In this case I would suggest exploring venues or locations that include twinkle lights, bistro lighting or even lanterns. Finding somewhere located in the forest, farmland or wood structure. Even in similar fashion a location that provides breathtaking views a part of it’s landscape. Overall these nature elements help to create the feel when you design your day.
Lets talk about florals this type of style is more freer think romantic, untamed and rustic like a garden or even country. You’ll see a lot of garden roses, eucalyptus, hydrangeas, ranunculus, dahlias, blue thistle and seeded eucalyptus. Now to get the more whimsical feel your bouquet should be a bit larger with more stems and wisps.
For instance, I would say there are many color schemes that go with this look. One of the most popular colors schemes you’ll see when it comes to this look will be the touches of beige, blush, mauve & greens. Secondly this theme gets enhanced by lots of elements of greenery. Having those green as one of your main points is important!
Nevertheless, candle light can help give you some romantic vibes as well.
Not sure on what look you want for a wedding dress? We got you sister! Look for dresses with open backs, dramatic beading, layers of tulle, off the shoulder sleeves, lace embellishments. Even the style of a dress can bring your wedding style/theme together. For a rustic and whimsical look we’ve seen A-Line and modified A-Line wedding dresses, sheath, and trumpet.
Who doesn’t love a good accessory? A good accessory can literally complete the look. Like adding a wedding veil. Wedding veil styles range from angel-cut to floor skimming cathedral veils. When going down the aisle your veil can enhance your appearance dramatically. The veil enhances your wedding dress & complimenting the beading or embroidery
If your wedding style is far from traditional, it’s time to bring in the custom embroidered wedding jackets! This is a style we are absolutely obsessed with. The best part of this accessory is that you can wear it again and again making it a well loved keepsake.
Creating your dream wedding day look is just as important as finding your perfect wedding dress. Let’s start with bridal makeup for this you can go one of two ways wanting to keep it rustic you can go with a natural enhancement or to spice it up with a full on glam. Pinterest is a great place to grab some inspiration!
To really get the rustic and whimsical look think romantic wedding hairstyles soft waves, loose up-do, and braids. Combine these hairstyles with decorative elements like delicate flowers, gemstones, bridal hair clips and pins, and bridal hair combs. These styles and accessories will look fabulous on all different lengths of hair.
If you have the option to do a hair and makeup trial we ALWAYS recommend it! Plus who doesn’t like to feel pretty all day! After all it’s a great way to see your look before the big day & make adjustments if needed.
