What’s Old Is New Again - How ‘Rustic’ Weddings Are Making A Comeback

Posted by Teresa Coleman on

When you think of a traditional wedding, the first thing that likely pops into your head is a church, a reception hall, or maybe a country club. However, a trend over the last decade may be changing the way we visualize weddings for a long time, and it’s a trend that doesn’t appear to be fading away anytime soon; the barn wedding, and everything rustic that goes along with it. It seems many couples are flocking to the simpler, more natural look for their weddings. Even if on paper, a barn wedding can be as exclusive and magical as any ‘expensive’ country club wedding, there is a feel of rustic relaxation that goes along with the setting, decor, and overall atmosphere of these shabby-chic style weddings.

So, why are these rustic weddings so popular?

It’s Okay To Start From Scratch

With a barn wedding, or even an outdoor wedding with a rustic theme, you don’t typically have to worry about clashing colors or having to match your decor to the theme already surrounding you, like you might have to in a country club or reception hall. You’re essentially starting with a blank canvas, and can choose your decor from top to bottom the way you want, without having to worry about mismatching at all.

Simple Charms, Relaxed Feel

Unfortunately, weddings can sometimes be stressful, and it just shouldn’t be that way! Most rustic weddings have a more relaxed feeling to begin with, because you’re surrounded by a mixture of nature and history. Many barns that have converted themselves into wedding venues still hold all the original charms that make people feel truly at home, and they can have a less formal vibe to them, which not only makes your guests comfortable, but can make you feel more at ease on your special day, too!

Beautiful Photos, Wherever You Go

Not only is the entire environment and backdrop of a barn wedding naturally beautiful, but adding rustic or ‘country’ decor can make it your own for every picture you take. Even better? Your wedding photos will be completely unique to you, instead of the same sights and backdrops of a country club, etc. These rustic weddings are a great way to really let your personality shine through, since you have more control over the entire look and feel of the day. Don’t be afraid to mix it up and let the look you really love shine through. It’s your special day, after all, and everything from the location to the decorations should be a direct reflection of you, your partner, and your love for each other.
