If you are like most couples, you have spent time imagining just how you want your wedding day to look and feel. You can picture yourself on the most special day of your life, surrounded by all your family and friends. You want the day to be perfect, and to make this happen, the venue has to be just right.
One option is to plan a rustic wedding. A rustic wedding will give you all the beauty of nature in an intimate setting. These weddings are becoming more and more popular, but they are more than just a passing trend. A rustic wedding is timeless, drawing on the absolute best of past and present to give you a day you will never forget.
What a Rustic Wedding has to Offer
When done right, a country venue provides the perfect backdrop for your wedding experience. Here’s why:
Nature is beautiful, and a rustic wedding takes advantage of that amazing splendor. Flowers are always perfect because they are growing naturally around you and your guests in the garden. You don’t have to worry about all the little decorating details – you can let your surroundings dazzle your guests. You can be sure that your colors will match the décor, because – quite simply – everything goes well when you are surrounded by the beauty of nature.
Furthermore, you don’t have to travel to a nearby park or location for pictures, because the outdoor rustic wedding offers picturesque landscapes and backgrounds that just will not disappoint. Your ceremony and reception will also be at the same venue, simplifying the planning process and making the day much easier and more enjoyable for your guests.
A wedding of this type immerses guests in the sights and sounds of nature. From the luscious lawn, to babbling water features, to colorful flower gardens, your day will look and sound amazing. While rustic weddings themselves are unique, they usually allow for even more customizing of your day because of the size and diversity of an outdoor venue. Your wedding can be created to reflect your own style and the personality of you as a couple.
Things to Consider When Planning a Rustic Wedding
People search everywhere for just the right wedding venue, and many jump into signing contracts before they have really done their research. If you want to plan a rustic wedding, there are several things you should consider:
- Does the location offer all the beauty you are looking for, or does it fall short on charm and beauty for the sake of the term rustic?
- What is included with the venue?
- Can you choose your own vendors to truly customize your rustic wedding (and stay on budget), or does the venue only allow from a select list of their own vendors?
- Can you provide your own decorations?
- What is the back-up plan if the weather doesn’t cooperate?
- How easily will your guests be able to find the wedding location and get to their seats?
It is important to consider these and any other questions you might have and get answers from your wedding coordinator or the venue administrator before you commit to a location. Make sure you feel comfortable with the answers before signing a contract. This is your day, and you want it to be just how you imagined it.

Because country weddings always look so well-planned, so thought out, and so elegant, people sometimes mistake them for being unattainable or too expensive.
