These days, almost everyone is looking for a rustic wedding that is both charming and chic. You don’t necessarily need to rent out a barn to achieve the rustic vibe you’re looking for. Think dreamy landscapes, bountiful centerpieces and a warm color palette. Do we have you hooked? Keep reading to see some of our favorite inspirations.



1. An Outdoor Wedding Indoors

A whimsical wonderland is right within your reach- right here at Wayfarers Chapel! Get the outdoorsy, one-with-nature feel in our chapel among the trees. During your ceremony, the sun will seep through the chapel’s glass exteriors, creating a warm and enchanting atmosphere for all to enjoy. And don’t worry about decorating the venue with flowers- the chapel has greenery and plants inside, not to mention the towering trees all around you. Rustic chic couldn’t be any easier.


2. Deck Out Your Flower Girl

How cute is this flower girl adorned with an ivy crown? Her moss-covered basket is the perfect accessory, and ties in with the venue’s surrounding greenery quite nicely.


3. Not Your Average Wedding Dress

This two piece wedding ensemble is the antithesis of a typical gown. The misty-blue hue of the ballerina skirt has a twinge of southern charm, and the lace cap sleeve blouse is perfectly elegant. The bride will be a woodland wonder hard to ignore!


4. Offer Cocktails In Style

Let your guests know what’s on the drink menu with a hand painted wooden sign. Not only is it rustic-chic, but it’s super easy to DIY and completely customizable.


5. A Rustic Glow

Get the gleam you desire and make your own farmhouse style chandelier. The mason jars and twine will echo the rustic theme in a shabby-chic way. There’s dozens of tutorials available online, but check out this one from the blog, Shabbyfufu.


6. Farmhouse Florals

Frame your centerpiece florals with rustic lanterns for a unique look. Blush and cream-colored roses, pepper berries and various wildflowers make for an arrangement full of charm and personality. Better yet, each table can leave with a part of the celebration and take a centerpiece home!


7. A Woodland-Inspired Wedding Cake

This semi-naked cake features a birch bark pattern that we are dying over. Top the cake with fresh flowers and ferns for a rustic touch. Further personalize it with the bride and groom’s initials to make a super sweet statement.


8. The Getaway Car

The bride and groom’s carriage can’t just be any old car. Make a memorable exit with a vintage baby-blue pickup truck that will have all guests eyeing with envy!
