Unique Rustic DIY Decor Ideas

adjective rus·tic \ˈrəs-tik

1. of or relating to the countryside; rural.
2. constructed or made in a plain and simple fashion; in particular.


Considering the actual meaning of the term, “rustic” weddings can end up being more elaborate and expensive than the more traditionally-styled weddings that people usually associate with being generally over-the-top. With the warmer months upon us, barn weddings that mix outdoor elements with a cozy, casual indoor setting are abundant.

The rustic theme is a blank canvas, offering tons of opportunities for you to lend your own creative touch to the decor. You can even collaborate with your florist to pair custom floral designs in your color palette with handmade decor elements to take the DIY wedding trend to the next level.
