Being in Alabama, we have some beautiful barn and rustic venues. Rustic doesn’t have to mean cheap, cheesy or country though! When I think of rustic, I think of outdoor elements, and different textures like farm tables, or wrought iron. If you are wanting a rustic wedding, stay away from grandma’s lace, burlap and mason jars. Stick with farm tables for your guests, wooden chairs, snuggle up by a fire, long floral garlands are just some ideas to incorporate that theme. You can also soften the palate with using lighter floral colors if you don’t want it to appear too heavy.
