While the world is swirling into the bubble of love that follows the royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, it’s fair to say that for brides-to-be the competition for greatness is hard. Let’s be honest; not everybody can have a wedding day that brings people such as Oprah Winfrey and Victoria Beckham in the same room. But you don’t need to be a royal to have a fantastic day. In fact, the best wedding days are those that are close to your personality and that explore possibilities out of the beaten tracks. In other words, you don’t need to hire a palace as a venue, especially if you don’t feel like dressing up as a princess for your big day. It’s fair to say that a lot of women dream of a happy day shared with the people they love. When simplicity and budget-friendly organization go hand-in-hand, you can move away from the traditional wedding venues to take a look at more atypical settings, such as doing a rustic wedding. While a rural scenery may not be the right choice for everyone, if you’re a nature lover and you want to put your guests at ease with an informal venue, it’s the best thing you could do with your big day.
Preparing For A Rustic Wedding
Who Loves A Rustic Wedding?
First of all, it’s important to understand that while rustic weddings might be the dreams of some, it can be a nightmare for others. You need to be sure you pick the right decor for your personality. If you’re still hesitating about how to organize best a wedding ceremony that looks and feels unique to you, the best way to find out what is right is to dive into your personal everyday style. What kind of home decor, for instance, do you prefer? This can say a lot about who you are, and consequently about how to best tailor your big day. For a start, if you’re a lover of everything Scandinavian and IKEA, you might love an outdoor wedding in a practical and straightforward style – such as turning your backyard into a venue with some smart furniture. Similarly, if you’re an avid consumer of all things bohemian and eclectic, you love the freedom of being outdoors and letting nature create the perfect space for you. Last, but not least, if you’ve turned your home into a modern barn with plenty of natural elements and shades, it’s fair to say that there will be no better venue than a rustic one.
Outdoorsy Weddings Are Popular
Outdoors ceremonies have become more and more popular for modern couples, as a result of spending the vast majority of their adult lives in an urban environment. As soon as Mother Nature awakes, couples look to plan their Spring weddings outside, or at least as much in the outdoors as possible. Can you create something cool and classy while getting married in nature? The answer is yes, of course. You can hire a botanical garden if you want something that has all the urban facilities close-by while offering a palette of vibrant natural colors. For couples who are looking for a natural feeling to their party, you can find plenty of old barn venues that are ideal for farm-to-table cuisine. Finally, the most culinary-aware couples try to look for gourmet variations, such as hiring a vineyard as their venue of choice. In other words, weddings and nature go hand-in-hand.
Help Your Guests To Feel At Ease
Finally, remember that not everyone feels safe in the outdoors. You need to make sure you’ve added a citronella candle on each table and that you’ve got a small emergency section with anti-bug sprays, sun protection, and warm blankets to help your guests relaxing in the backyard. And don’t forget to keep the fresh drinks coming.
