Mix country and rustic together and you have yourself a country rustic wedding theme that can be in the woods, in a barn, or even in your backyard. Details of cowboy boots, mason jars, a type writer guest book, birch wood, and a pickup truck for transportation will bring these two themes together as one. Today we're bringing the farm and backwoods details together for 20 Country Rustic Wedding Theme Ideas everyone will love...
I love the way any wedding venue, no matter where you live or what theme you are planning, can be turned into what you've been dreaming about. Can you believe that this is the private residence of the bride's family in Tennesse. With the help of her friend and event designer Jodi Brewer, they turned the family farm into a chic country rustic wedding with hanging chandeliers and a beautiful floral arch way for their ceremony.
You can't get any more country rustic than an old ford pickup truck! Perhaps you know someone who would let a sweet country rustic bride and her dad drive to her wedding in one or even just to use for rustic photos like this one. For more country rustic photo shots, get inside the truck or sit on the hood with your bridal party!
Sometimes a country rustic wedding is more than just a theme, it's about the ranch or farm you grew up on and the animals you took care of and you want those memories included throughout your big day. Bring those moments to life with beautiful horses that you once trained and rode on when you were little. Not only would this be special for your wedding but also for your country rustic save the dates or thank you cards.
A country rustic wedding theme can be more relaxed with simple details and simple but chic attire like a pair of retro suspenders for the groom and a vintage pink gown for the bride. I love how this bride and groom look country, rustic, and retro all at the same time! When you plan simple details for a country rustic wedding you can save money by reusing, going to thrift shops, and DIY. With two creative minds the possibilities are endless!
To keep your country rustic theme flowing through your big day from the trees at your ceremony to your barn reception, match your wedding colors and bridesmaids dresses to the rustic earth tones of these details. Luckily for these beautiful bridesmaids they already had dresses in their wardrobe that matched the colors the bride wanted. Earth tones of silver, bronze, light brown, pale greens, and yellows will look brilliant mixed throughout your country rustic wedding day.
This stunning photo captured my heart and I know it will inspire your country rustic wedding with ideas for your flower girls. Keeping with the rustic earth tone colors of your bridesmaids, your flower girls don't have to match perfectly but they can be just as sweet and simple as all of the details in your country rustic affair! I love the idea of having two older flower girls pull the younger one in a rustic wagon; the wagon and her smile just melt my heart!
There are many unique ring "pillow" ideas you can use for your country rustic theme other than the traditional pillow. This moss wood ring pillow would be perfect for a backwoods or barn ceremony. The great thing about country rustic wedding themes is the eco-friendly and green details like this birch ring pillow that can be reused and are already helping to cut down on environmental waste.
Braids are a beautiful bridal hairstyle for any theme, but have a simple yet chic look to them that will complete your country rustic ensemble. I love the loose look of her hairdo and the way the braid wraps around like a halo, it adds a whimsical touch that is perfect for a country rustic wedding!
What's a country rustic wedding without your cowgirl boots?! I love when bridesmaids wear cowgirl boots with their tea length dresses, there is no mistaking this wedding as anything other than a country theme! Of course you can wear heels or flats, but if you really want to go all out with your country rustic theme from head to toe, walk down the aisle in your boots and rock your cowgirl hat during the reception!
Whether you are planning a country rustic theme for an outdoor or indoor wedding, you'll want your flowers and decor items to reflect the rustic nature of the woods or the countryside. Bring those earth tones into your bridal bouquet with succulents and greens like this gorgeous bouquet; you can also mix in some florals for a soft touch. Complete your country rustic look with twine wrapped around the stems of the bouquet.
If you are lucky enough to have a barn in your backyard like this bride than you don't need to go very far for your country rustic wedding day! What's great about a blank space is that it can be turned into anything you can imagine. With a little lighting, some tables and chairs, and a few gorgeous centerpieces, an elegant country rustic reception was created in their barn!

It's more than just the branches and it's more than just the light bulbs and hanging candles; it's both of them and how together as one they create a whimsical rustic chandelier. Who wouldn't want to sit here all day and enjoy dinner!

Honey favors might not work for just any wedding, but they certainly do for a country rustic theme as they give everyone a warm feeling of home.

For their photo booth, this sweet couple hung a clothes line and strung several colorful fabrics so that each guest could have fun with different shots.
