Design ideas for rustic weddings

Flower inspiration for rustic weddings by top London floral sylists and wedding florists

When you think of ‘rustic’ the first things that come to mind may be a remote log cabin or a barn on a farm, but you don’t have to be getting married in the middle of nowhere to go with this wedding theme. Reflecting a growing desire among people to reconnect with nature and towards more natural styled wedding flowers, many brides are now choosing a rustic wedding flowers theme. Nature is a great resource for decorating ideas and can also allow the wedding to include some of the groom’s tastes too.

Going ‘rustic’ doesn’t have to mean checkered tablecloths and lots of wood. Containers such as ceramic or metal milk churns and jugs can be incorporated in wedding reception arrangements, plus plant pots, crates, jars and items such as weathered old furniture, lanterns, suitcases, ladders, watering cans, wheelbarrows or bicycles. Lights, bunting, streamers, tissue paper pom poms and balloons suspended from ceilings also help create a rustic feel. The great thing is, this type of decoration can be as simple or elegant as you want it to be.

The deciding factor of any wedding scheme is usually the location, but rustic weddings needn’t be confined to rustic wedding venues such as barns, as rustic wedding decorations can provide a lovely contrast in modern venues such as warehouses, large halls, galleries or hotels. And if you’re getting married outside, or somewhere with lovely grounds, it’s a natural fit for your bridal flowers.

The key to a rustic wedding is making sure that everything looks natural. The wedding bouquets should be less structured, and a little asymmetrical, as if you could have just picked them from a garden or meadow and put them together yourself. Wild, garden-style flowers and foliage are usually used, but elegant flowers such as roses, peonies and lilies can still find their place in a rustic setting.

As a wedding florist, things we love in terms of rustic wedding flowers ideas include watering cans, milk churns and even wellies used as containers to put the flowers in. And a battered old wheelbarrow brimming full of wild flowers makes a wonderful and unusual entrance display. For a spring wedding, plush bouquets of chrysanthemums and daisies can make a lovely seasonal alternative to the traditional rose.

Muted colours and tones usually work best for rustic weddings, although pops of colour can be added to give interest and contrast. Pink is seeing a comeback in the form of soft, blush tones, and although a wedding all in pink and white might seem too girly, this pretty colour creates a really warm, natural and romantic look. For an outdoor, garden wedding a mixture of cream and light pink roses look lovely on tables glowing with candles, and combined with wooden furniture will create a very relaxed atmosphere.

To give the feeling that your wedding flowers have been picked from an abundant field and to really reflect the variety in nature, you might consider combining sweetly scented white freesia with various tones of pink flowers and lots of soft, wispy foliage such as ferns. Add in a few branches and accents of wood and you have a gorgeously romantic rustic theme.

Wedding Bouquets 140 wmAt bridal florist Todich Floral Design, we believe an important element to rustic wedding flowers is lots of greenery. Cascading bouquets and flower garlands are a great way to achieve this and are very popular for rustic weddings. Delicate flowers can be woven in to garlands of foliage such as ivy, ruscus, ferns and pine and strewn across tables, woven up posts or banisters and draped across doorways or freestanding arches to give a feeling of abundance and bringing the outdoors in.

For lighting, a great suggestion is to use antique lanterns and do not hesitate to decorate the lanterns with flowers as well, as part of the wedding will happen during the day while the lanterns are not lit. Twinkling fairy lights are lovely too and look incredibly romantic when strung outwards from a central point.

Flowers available for summer bridal bouquets, flower arrangements, wedding buttonholes and corsages include: Aster (daisy-like flowers on upright stems), Alchemilla (a common garden flower with tiny yellow and green flowers), Carnations (long lasting and can be used on their own, in pomanders), Cornflower (a strikingly beautiful blue flower), Chrysanthemums (bigger flowers, with large petals), Dahlias (dramatic-looking flowers with a round shape), Delphinium (tall flowers), Gypsophila (very small white flowers), Hydrangea (a flower with an enormous head and often used for purple summer wedding flowers), Lavendar (a lilac flower with a fabulous aroma), Nerine (clusters of delicate flowers), Nigella (gentle, papery flowers; also referred to as ‘love in the mist’), Peonies (big, soft, papery  flowers), Phlox (a favourite country garden flower), Roses (a classic flower available all year round and in numerous colours), Sweet Peas (short-lived flowers with beautiful colours and a gorgeous fragrance), and Zinnias (similar to Dahlias).

A simple image search online will show you what these seasonal wedding flowers look like and provide plenty of inspiration for different styles of wedding bouquets and wedding reception flowers. If you’re having bridesmaids at your wedding, you will probably want flowers for them too. Traditionally, bridesmaid bouquets are similar to the bride’s bouquet, in slightly smaller versions. However, they don’t necessarily need to be the same shape.

You can pick and choose from a number of different shapes for your summer wedding bouquet including the classical, neat, round posy bouquet, a cascading or teardrop bouquet, an oval bouquet, a heart-shaped flower bouquet, a loose, natural hand-tied, or for younger bridesmaids, pomanders, baskets, wands or mini hand-tied designs. Pretty, loose petals also make a lovely addition to summer weddings, and can be provided in baskets for younger bridesmaids to scatter down the aisle as they walk.

Roses, dahlias, hydrangea and peonies are particularly popular for summer wedding bouquets. These full, blowsy flowers all make excellent leading ladies in summer wedding flowers and arrangements. Smaller, delicate flowers like aster, lisianthus, cornflower, nigella and phlox make lovely additions, as do sweetly scented freesia and sweet peas. Gypsophila, or baby’s breath, which features tiny clusters of pin-sized white flowers has also seen something of a resurgence and is often now used alone to create romantic, white wispy clouds of flowers. Carnations and chrysanthemums also often get a bad press, but they come in a huge choice of colours and shapes, some really pretty varieties and make great, cost-effective secondary flowers to help fill out designs. A good florist will discuss wedding flowers prices with you and help you make the most of your budget, so be sure to provide an indication of this when you start discussing ideas.
