Wedding celebrations are transformed into awe-inspiring scenes when fresh blooms are used in abundance, so it's important you get them right. If you are planning a rustic themed romance, you can't go past these flowers for a rustic wedding.
Rustic weddings conjure up connotations of soft draped linen, raw timber, soft lighting and lashings of flowers from the bouquet and throughout the day. Here are a few sweet ways to inject some rustic romance into your wedding blooms.
Creating a rustic wedding bouquet...
Think an array of textured wildflowers for your bouquet. Keep the colours muted and opt for soft greens, blush pinks and natural ivory coloured blooms. We are loving the look of a trail shaped bouquet, with blooms that look like they have been freshly picked from a field. What is so fun about this theme is that you aren't restricted to classic blooms, get creative with herbs, succulents, ferns, trailing foliage, willow and seeds.

Carry this theme into the rest of your bridal style...
Take this look a step further and inject some natural rustic vibes into the rest of your bridal style. There is something so magical, beautiful and effortless about a bride with flowers in her hair. No longer the realm of barefoot bohemian weddings, wearing natural pretty floral hair accessories are perfect for a rustic themed celebration. The popularity of floral head dresses has lead to a demand for fresh floral hair adornments ranging form extravagant floral crowns, to single corsages and individually wired flowers.

A simple ceremony arch sets a rustic scene...
Fresh blooms set the ceremony scene and give your guests their first glimpse into your celebration's style. Opt for a ceremony arch that draws the eye towards the 'altar'; draped in linen and adorned in trailing blooms and foliage for a truly rustic romance from the outset.

Bring the outside in with some sweet rustic centrepieces...
Use flowers for a rustic wedding to imbue your reception with fanciful colour and an undeniable sense of rustic elegance. Keep it simple and sweet with small posies of blooms dotted around your reception in mason jars or up the ante with succulents in pots or gathered bouquets in jugs for a wild, whimsy fairytale.
