If you’ve been surfing Pinterest or looking through any bridal magazine in recent years, we’re sure you know that rustic weddings are A Thing. But that word’s been thrown around so much that it’s hard to know what exactly it means anymore. Is it DIY? Is it just burlap and mason jars at this point?
And is it possible to have a “modern rustic vintage retro” wedding? Yes—because it’s an umbrella term that lends itself to extreme levels of personalization (with or without mason jars).
Here’s what we do know: Rustic usually involves a wedding that will be set at a farm, barn, or somewhere in the country, but beyond that the choice is yours.
And when it comes to invitations, the same rule applies. The key is to keep colors on the more muted side—think natural cardstock, floral patterns, and woodsy elements—and of course, make sure your personality shines through. Though the more flowers, burlap, and twine, the better.
