A Rustic Affair Part 1: The Venue

21 Jul

If you and your fiancé love hiking, fishing and basically enjoying the beautiful outdoors, you probably want your wedding to reflect your rustic lifestyle. There are actually some simple and easy ways to avoid a run of the mill wedding and create an event full of country chic touches and rustic sophistication.

The biggest decision, other than accepting the proposal, is the venue. Look for outdoor spaces like fields, forests, or lakeside venues. These locations can offer some incredible photo opportunities, like these shots of couples out by a rustic barn and beneath the forest’s canopy. Outdoor weddings are being reinvented and becoming more elegant, sophisticated events. And the brides that are choosing to get married outside are creating some truly amazing and unique scenes.

If your heart is set on an indoor wedding, there are lots of rustic options too. Hotels near national monuments and national parks can offer beautiful indoor venues and the hotels’ design and decor usually reflect their rustic surroundings. Other indoor ideas include lodges, small country churches, wineries, or you could even transform a local barn into your own unique location and create a chic, hometown event.

Where ever you decide to get married, make sure your venue will comfortably accommodate all of your guests and fits the design you’re
dreaming of.

Happy venue hunting!
