The rustic wedding isn’t a trend.
It’s a state of mind, a style that lets couples create a unique wedding setting to reflect their personalities.
Call it “rustic,” “rustic-chic,” vintage or “Downton Abbey-meets-farmhouse,” it’s a style with staying power.
That sweet, charming simplicity, the intermingling of informal and formal wedding elements takes flair and imagination to pull off: “Naked” wedding cakes – thick frosting between layers, bare on the sides like our vanilla-and-buttercream cake with a clutch of carnations on top, or the chocolate buttermilk cake with layers of milk chocolate buttercream, salted caramel sauce and pecans, loosely bundled bouquets and organic decorations, for example.
So, while Mason jars and burlap may be old hat now, count on brides to refine the look with new ideas like these.
