The country wedding theme is our one of the most favorite wedding theme. With a country themed wedding theme like Gabbinbar Homestead and two beans in a pod, there is no better wedding venue to realize a country themed vision. Creating a country themed wedding theme is not about buying luxurious and sophisticated items, but using natural touches and foraging items. Country themed wedding themes and styles are inspired by the simplicity of country life, referencing the outdoors and often include country themed elements such as wood, metal and raw surfaces. Here is a guide to creating a country-themed wedding for modern brides.
Let’s start with invitations and stationery
The popularity of country wedding invites has also seen the rise of more natural wedding invitations and stationery. Invitations suitable for a typical country wedding include those made of wood, simple letterpress invitations, or you can use paper materials with rough or unfinished edges. Now, when it comes to wedding signage, you simply can’t go beyond the natural tones of wood paired with white calligraphy, gorgeous!
Your wedding venue
Outdoor wedding venues create the perfect country wedding. Immerse yourself and your guests in beautiful natural surroundings, think parks, gardens, or even a secluded spot in a paddock. When choosing your ceremony furniture, choose chairs in natural wood tones rather than bright whites and smooth finishes. Wood tones will blend into the surroundings and look effortless, which is the key to a country-themed wedding.
Your wedding venue
The ideal wedding venue for a country themed wedding theme will feature exposed and raw surfaces such as wood, brick and even corrugated iron. When you’re looking for a wedding venue, keep in mind what elements of the venue can be incorporated into your look. Not only will this achieve a country themed wedding invitations vibe, but it will also save you money on your styling budget. It’s important that the venue has good bones to work with, after all the whole point of a country wedding theme is not to add too many styling pieces or you’ll spoil the country themed vibe. Less is more honey!
Wedding Flowers and Decorations
The key here is to bring in what is outside. Native Australian flowers always work well when you are trying to achieve a country themed wedding theme. When it comes to country themed weddings, eucalyptus, gum, protea, acacia and olive branches are our go-to greens and flowers. When you brief your florist about the flowers you’re after, make sure you use the words unstructured, cascading, and lighthearted. Your bouquet should look effortlessly fresh from the garden, rather than carefully designed.
It’s time to talk about fashion
This is where you can really have some fun mixing fabrics of different textures to create country themed and slightly unfinished styles. For bridesmaid and groomsmen outfits, we recommend fabrics such as linen, tweed or even cotton. The natural fibers of these fabrics exude a country themed vibe and look effortlessly chic. Lace is a must for brides; it can add a country themed touch to your outfit, and the bigger the lace, the better. Be aware that small, intricate lace can give you a vintage look, which may not be your thing. Last but not least – the groom. Grooms, be brave with color when you get up, try a suit in blue instead of black or gray, as this looks very formal.
