Venues for a Rustic Wedding?

Rustic weddings are becoming increasingly popular due to their charm and warmth. Couples looking for a rustic wedding venue have many options, depending on their style and budget. Popular venues for rustic weddings include barns, farms, orchards, woodlands, beaches, mountainside lodges, and country parks.

A tipi is an excellent choice for a rustic wedding. Whether it’s situated in an open field, alongside a tranquil lake or nestled within a wooded area, the canvas structure provides the perfect backdrop for a rustic and romantic ceremony. When decorating your tipi wedding, you can draw inspiration from nature and use rustic elements such as hay bales, wildflowers, and twinkling fairy lights for a stunning effect.

Rustic Wedding Invitation Ideas

The rustic theme can be carried over to your wedding invitations and wedding stationery. A simple, uncluttered design with natural touches is a lovely way to set the tone for a rustic wedding. Consider using woodgrain textures, lace or burlap and hessian ribbon, natural materials like string, twine and cotton papers or brown kraft card.


Often the style of invitations features natural elements such as wood, floral designs, and earthy colours. Incorporating a hand-drawn sketch or watercolour painting of the venue can be a great way to personalise your wedding stationery. You can also include your favourite flowers, wildflowers and even feathers.

Designing Rustic Wedding Invitations

When designing your rustic wedding invitations, the possibilities are endless! Couples will want to consider their wedding venue when selecting a design. Whether you’re getting married in a rustic barn, tipi or having a beachside ceremony, draw inspiration from your surroundings and choose stationery that reflects the natural beauty of the setting. Farm wedding invitations featuring tractors and hay bales are perfect for country weddings, while beach wedding invites featuring a seascape or starfish will be ideal for couples tying the knot near the ocean. Barn wedding invitations can feature rustic elements such as trees, twinkling lights and florals; there really is so much choice.

When creating a wedding invitation suite, consider adding touches of texture and colour to your designs. You can choose from different types of paper, such as uncoated cardstock or handmade papers with natural fibres, as well as recycled paper, such as kraft card. Incorporating rustic elements like twine, burlap and hessian ribbon can add a charming touch to your stationery suite.

Couples should always think about their own personal style when designing their wedding invitations. Whether you opt for wedding invitations with a rustic theme or elegant, vintage-inspired design or something with a more modern edge, make sure to keep it consistent throughout. And remember to keep your colour palette limited, so it works cohesively across your suite.
