Rustic Wedding Ideas

Rustic wedding ideas are rooted in creativity. This style of wedding should reflect the bride and grooms’ personalities. Your rustic wedding can be extravagant and stylish or tempered and conservative. The extent of your Tampa Bay/Clearwater rustic wedding’s flair hinges on your unique desires.

Location is Key

Location is one of the most important components of the rustic wedding planning process. There are all sorts of beautiful locales across Tampa Bay and Clearwater that provide an organic feel. Anyplace from a cabin to a barn or gorgeous green space by the water will serve as an excellent area for your rustic wedding.

A Laid Back Feel

Part of the appeal of a rustic wedding is that guests can dress casually. Though the wedding is a formal event, it does not require overly-formal attire, especially if it has a rustic theme. Flip-flops or cowboy boots can be paired with lovely dresses. Encourage guests to mix in some burlap with an array of patterns and hues to create a chic rustic aesthetic.

Make use of bark and pine in your centerpieces to add to the theme. Use barrel coolers for drinks to the visual element. Consider platforms made of tree stumps to present the cake and other tasty treats. The bottom line is you can go in several different directions with a rustic wedding. Take the idea as far as you like and you will undoubtedly be pleased with the results.

Signs for a Rustic Aesthetic

Elite Events and Rentals can help you get creative with signs to create quite the captivating rustic look. Use wood signage to steer guests toward wedding drinks, food and activities. You can even make rustic table place cards and menu suggestions to boot.

The Cake

When it comes to the cake, the most important component is fun! There is no need to resort to a conventional traditional white cake, especially if you are intent on an all-rustic wedding. You can even opt for two cakes: a rustic, outdoor-themed cake for the groom and the typical white wedding cake. The cake maker should be creative and willing to take a few risks. Consider hunting motifs, a fishing theme or even a camouflage cake.

Use Your Imagination!

In the end, the rustic feel of your Tampa Bay/Clearwater wedding will only be limited by the extent of your imagination. Spend some time brainstorming and researching before making a commitment. You will inevitably come up with some highly unique and enjoyable rustic elements for your big day.
