One thing you can be sure of, the boho and rustic wedding themes are here to stay. Which is great news because who doesn’t love a dreamy, nature inspired wedding? Currently, an emphasis is being placed on colours based in nature, fabrics in neutral tones and highly touchable textures. Here are our top tips on how you can achieve an updated version of the boho and rustic wedding themes for your big day…
Stay on Trend with a Neutral Colour Palette
Going neutral doesn’t mean you have to stick to beige and cream. Feel free to keep these as base tones and mix them up with softer colours like grey, dusty rose, earthy brown, mauve and taupe. Add some glam with glitter or metallics and you’ll have the neutral colour palette of your dreams! When it comes to styling, you can keep your neutral theme consistent with these jacquard chair toppers available in grey or off-white.
Let Nature Inspire Your Boho or Rustic Themed Wedding
Nothing is more gorgeous or ethereal than letting Mother Nature do the talking when styling your wedding. If you’re planning an indoor wedding, express your inner naturalist with these Lycra chair covers in green with a palm leaf pattern, or include a flower wall, waterfall bouquets or adorn your space in stunning florals with these flower vines and hanging garlands.
Choose Timeless over Contemporary
Rustic weddings are all about stepping back in time. Create that perfect sense of nostalgia by incorporating vintage-inspired decorations and centrepieces into your styling. This is easy to do with these candlesticks, candleholders and gorgeous crystal cake stands. Up the romance by adding elements of décor you’ve created yourself using fabrics that have a timeless look and feel. Hessian and lace will never go out of style and they’re the perfect fabrics for DIY wedding projects.
Dress your Boho or Rustic Wedding Up with Textural Fabrics and Linens
Adding texture will give your styling depth and detail while still working with your chosen colour palette. You can incorporate texture easily using linens and chair coverings and dressing your ceiling or walls. For example, these jacquard chair toppers come in a range of neutral colours and have a slight waffled effect to the fabric. Another fabulous way to add texture is with ceiling draping and silk satin backdrops. Hessian is another textural fabric that can be used for aisle runners, chair sashes or bunting.
Make Gorgeous Florals and Creative Centrepieces Your Decorating Heroes
Whether it’s is indoors or outdoors, you’ll want to enhance the natural beauty of your big day with plenty of blooms and creative centrepieces. Overload your tables with stunning greenery by using these vintage-inspired gold iron flower stands and tear-drop vases. You can also stick to your colour palette no matter what the season (or budget) by going faux. Choose from these waterfall bouquets in pink or white or gorgeous peonies in beautiful peach or creamy white.
Light up Your Boho or Rustic Wedding with Glitter, Gold and Glamour
While there is currently an emphasis on muted tones and understated décor, you can still incorporate the right amount of glitter, sequins and metallic elements into your big day. Think about adding some 1920s-style glamour to your soiree with antique gold or rose gold sequined table runners or art-deco placemats in gold, copper or bronze. These geometric napkin rings and chair bands with crystal buckles will also give your special day a classic Great Gatsby vibe!
