Wildflowers and fresh pies and burlap bags. These are just one of the pretty little things that can come in a rustic ranch-style wedding theme. Many couples are picking out ranch-style weddings today because they’re fun, chic and gorgeously rustic.
Pick out a venue for your ranch style wedding. A lovely quaint vintage chapel in a ranch setting, perhaps? Or a rustic barn in an arcadian setting? You will surely find one in your state — there are many venues you can choose from coast to coast.
For rustic chic inspiration, pick out a lot of pastel accents against a backdrop of an authentic country ranch. Soft whites and soft pinks and some mint greens will never look prettier in a ranch style wedding. There’s something about its sweet elegance that blends perfectly well with a rustic ranch setting. Get excited about those amazing rustic and vintage elements – like rustic wood wedding signs, mason jar recipes and lots of wildflowers.
Decorating the place rustic style can be done in a cinch. Couples who have done it before are letting it on a secret – rent out vintage items for your wedding centerpieces. Try renting vintage books. Mismatched chairs and furniture with shabby chic paint or plain wood colors. Ditch the glasses and let the mason jars join the celebration – they come in blue and clear colors. What about mismatched china? They will surely look great on your rustic wedding table. Throw in some vintage suitcases and crates — they’re a pretty sight to behold. They can also come in handy to put your wedding favors on or where to put the wedding gifts. Make sure you got lots of string lights and chalkboards or even church pews. Was that enough to get those creative juices flowing?
We’re not talking about flowers yet. Use wild flowers as delicate touches to your wedding look. Weave them between your locks or add them to your bouquet. Spritz on an earthy scent or don those spunky cowboy boots. Throw in a lot of country touches to your look. Let your bridesmaids join in the fun too.
Serve some real good old-fashioned country food fare – smoked gouda mac and cheese, roasted vegetables and salad greens, tacos, baked beans, potato salad, warmed rolls. Set up a trailmix food bar, or home-baked goodies. Make traditional family recipes of fruit jams and jellies and keep them in pretty glass jars – they’re great as wedding favors for your ranch-style themed wedding.
