While it would certainly be lovely, your venue doesn’t have to be situated on a hill in the sprawling countryside – you can bring the greenery to wherever you are.
Focus on plentiful arrangements of gum leaves, lavender and roses. Mix them up so they’re not so formal and consider placing them on chairs, archways, tables and near any food.
Drape hessian cloth with blooms and layer timber pallets with splashes of natives in soft colours.
Light it up
Remember, rustic is subtle and natural. But that doesn’t mean you can’t make it pretty.
Try our festoon lights mixed with a delicate array of fairy lights.
Candles are also a must – on tables, in glass jars and dotted everywhere around your ceremony and reception.
Set the table
The Bentwood chairs in walnut will help introduce even more timber (you can never have too many shades of brown when you’re styling a rustic scene).
For classic table settings, hire sparkling glassware, crockery and cutlery.
A barrel of laughs
Timber is your best friend when you want to nail this theme. Other than pallets and logs, try a few wine barrels for guest mingling zones, or unfinished pieces of sturdy wood to display candles, the guest book or more flowers.
Let’s go outside
If you are planning an outdoor soiree to watch the sunset and dance the night away, invest in some rugs, blankets and cushions.
Throw in a game of giant Jenga and giant Connect 4 to get the giggles flowing.
