Ukrain­ian brides are increas­ing­ly choos­ing a Rus­tic style wed­ding. The word Rus­tic means “rus­tic”, and there­fore the fun­da­men­tal of this style is sim­plic­i­ty. Sim­plic­i­ty is always in fash­ion!

The con­cept of the style is to cre­ate a very cozy atmos­phere so that you and your guests feel at home.

A rus­tic wed­ding is a great option in terms of bud­get sav­ings. The cer­e­mo­ny can be held out­doors, and sim­ple and inex­pen­sive mate­ri­als can be used in the design.

Decor and colors

Rus­tic wed­ding decor is not com­plete with­out wood and burlap…

Tree fellings can remain untreat­ed, with all nat­ur­al defects — even bet­ter! As for burlap, you can dec­o­rate it with: arch­es, tables, chair backs, invi­ta­tions and oth­er acces­sories.

Ele­gance to this style adds a slight imprint of time. Let all mate­ri­als be care­less­ly worn and even a lit­tle aged.

Things you have long for­got­ten will fit per­fect­ly here: old books, wood­en bar­rels, glass jars, buck­ets of straw and even a cart … What if it is gath­er­ing dust some­where in the coun­try 🙂

Impor­tant to remem­ber! Rus­tic style is alien to chic, rich­ness, ele­gant fur­ni­ture and shiny fab­rics. Nat­u­ral­ness, ten­der­ness and pris­tine beau­ty reign here.

You can use fam­i­ly heir­looms that you inher­it­ed from your great-grand­par­ents — this will help you feel the spir­it of gen­er­a­tions and cre­ate the same home com­fort.

Rus­tic is, first of all, light and nat­ur­al tones! For exam­ple: cream, sand, peach, blue, light green and brown.

Venue for a rustic wedding

A wed­ding is best held in the open air: in a for­est on a pic­turesque mead­ow, in a field with haystacks, or in a park by a lake. The wed­ding arch can be dec­o­rat­ed with foliage, and the mar­quee is dec­o­rat­ed with flow­ers and branch­es.

If the weath­er does not allow you to cel­e­brate out­doors, then look for a coun­try eco-house or a restau­rant, but always with a rus­tic decor.

The image of the bride in the style of Rustic

Your out­fit is an airy, light dress made of flow­ing fab­rics. Hair­style — care­less curls and a wreath of wild flow­ers. Make­up — in pas­tel col­ors, empha­siz­ing your nat­ur­al beau­ty. Light hand-made jew­el­ry. And it’s done! You are a ten­der and roman­tic bride in Rus­tic style.

Image of the groom

He is dressed in casu­al style. Light­weight loose pants, moc­casins. The shirt is made of nat­ur­al fab­rics in mut­ed shades. Top — vest or sus­penders. Com­plete the styl­ish look with a neck­er­chief or a straw hat. To add ease, it is worth unbut­ton­ing the top but­ton on the shirt and mak­ing a slight mess on the head.


Your bou­quet sim­ply has to be sim­ple, as if the flow­ers had just been picked for you in the field. Corn­flow­ers, daisies, green peas, blue­bells and spikelets of wheat are ide­al for a rus­tic bridal bou­quet.

Do not for­get to add fresh flow­ers to the decor. Place them in wood­en box­es, jars, wick­er bas­kets and bot­tles. Banks can be wrapped with twine and hung from trees or beams.


But you and your soul mate can make a hang­ing decor with your own hands! So the wed­ding will be even more sin­cere. For exam­ple, you can make a gar­land of flags cut out of burlap, and hang hearts woven from mul­ti-col­ored wire next to them.

If the nec­es­sary dec­o­ra­tions were not found in the fam­i­ly stocks, dec­o­ra­tors from our The cat­a­log rush to help! We are sure that there you will find a pro­fes­sion­al who will catch your wish­es and help you cre­ate your dream wed­ding.

You can also make your own invi­ta­tions. The main thing is to use kraft paper (it has become an inte­gral part of the Rus­tic style).

A rus­tic wed­ding is always a cozy and home­ly atmos­phere, so don’t for­get to give your guests love­ly gifts! For exam­ple, give them beau­ti­ful­ly dec­o­rat­ed jars of home­made jam, jam, or hon­ey.

Ideas for a photo shoot

The hayloft is con­sid­ered the most pop­u­lar place. Haystacks fill the wed­ding with romance and warm rur­al com­fort. You can take a cou­ple of shots on a swing, as well as near a cart dec­o­rat­ed with flow­ers.

And you can also sit on stumps and have a tea par­ty in nature. Pot­tery, a check­ered blan­ket and pil­lows com­plete the shot.

And final­ly. It’s a good idea to goof off with fun acces­sories in the form of mus­tach­es, kissies or big glass­es. Pos­i­tive emo­tions are guar­an­teed!
