Rustic has evolved and aren't we just ecstatic about it?!
I find it so beautiful how the rustic/boho theme is still going strong and even though a person would think that every idea for this concept could possibly be old and tired each couple comes up with a new idea, making it their own. A breathe of fresh air providing the theme with their own individualism.
This styled shoot captures all of these pretty concepts! Rustic is definitely not going anywhere any time soon. Beautifully piecing boho and rustic, weaving the two together for a laid back look.
Pops of bright colour were used throughout.
A vast array of brights used in the flower arrangements, confirming that brides don't always have to play it safe by going with the classic white.
Perhaps you not labelled as a classic bride, but rather an alternative bride? This dress does complete justice to a vintage find, you'll fall in love with the retro lace look that a new replica would not have the same effect. Scouring through vintage clothing shops you could possibly find a real gem, just like this one. Opting away from the stark white dress, love that it has more of an ivory tone and is complimented beautifully with leather Blu Betty's.
On the eye there is more of a muted, neutral eye shadow used, however, the bold lip colour gives it an over all pop. This look, together with braided hair completes the vintage boho inspired look.
Geometrics aren't only for the classic wedding with rose golds and shimmer. How cute is it that geometric was used in natural wood. The geometric decor following through from the wedding stationery used; invitations, table seating, and menu. A beautiful incorporation of geometric decor laced with flower arrangements in bright colours.
The cake has a classic look, however, with a slight splash of colour and a red velvet inside gives it a complete wedding cake alternative.
There's more than enough inspiration to go through with this pretty styled shoot and when you done taking down all your ideas lets run to the barn... Let's go get married
