How to embrace a rustic wedding theme

Love necklace

A rustic wedding scheme emphasises warmth and charm. By using natural decor and earthy hues, this style choice will win the hearts of your guests with a welcoming atmosphere. If you’re dreaming of a rustic wedding, then take a look at our styling tips in this post.

Colour scheme

A rustic colour scheme is one that is drenched in warm hues – think bronzes, dark reds and auburns. Bring these colours into every element of your wedding, from the invitations to your floral decorations. When considering your metallics, go for bronzes and golds as the perfect complement to reds and browns.



How you present yourselves as the bride and groom alongside your wedding party can add rustic allure to the big day. Matching bowties, ties and bridesmaid dresses should be bronze, burnt orange or mahogany. You can even mix and match with this colour scheme like the fallen leaves of a forest in Autumn.

As the bride to be, embrace accessories that showcase foliage and wild flowers. A gorgeous floral crown is a wonderful way to bring a rustic vibe to your bridal attire. Embrace crowns that showcase seasonal flowers and or go for classic buds, such as roses.

When it comes to the bridal and bridesmaids bouquets, choose flowers in autumnal colours and embrace wildflowers for a romantic, bohemian look. Adding the right foliage to any bouquet will add contrast and draw the eye to the colour scheme.
