Are you looking looking for farm style wedding ideas? Are you dreaming of your wedding ceremony taking place in the peaceful farm setting with your rustic reception in an old barn? Look no further, Little Pink Book is here to help! When it comes to the farm styled wedding there are a few must have items and accessories to live up to the theme. There is a fine line between Farmer’s couture and Farmer’s Market, let us help you pick the most important items.
The rustic theme can look absolutely exquisite if you pair it with the right materials, colors and of course, wedding attire. Think of the setting as a backdrop to your most important day. Steer clear of blending in with the background by creating a contrast within your color palette, as well as your wedding dress. When it comes to your wedding photos your photographer will love the fact that he/she has a contrast to play with.
Your Wedding Dress
Your wedding dress is the one thing that should not match the rustic theme. Choose a stylish bridal gown without too much frills and thrills; you don’t want to look like a ‘Voortrekker Tannie’ working in the barn.
Props in Play
The great thing about the farm styled wedding is that most of the props are already there. Utilise these items in creating a tractor photo booth with all kinds of farm utensils. If the items are rather plain, add in some color with your flower decorations and table decorations.
Your DIY Day
Having a farm-styled wedding enables you to create a lot of DIY items; these will fall in place with the overall theme perfectly. The table decorations and seating arrangements can be hand-written and you can even make a ‘Marshmallow Kit’ if you are having an outdoor braai.
What would a farm wedding be without some hay? Use these as seats but remember to cover it up with some interesting material. You don’t want your guests to feel itchy and irritable while celebrating your special day.
If the venue of your farm styled wedding is your family farm, you have to include something traditional and historical in your decorations. If your mother is a fan of cookie tins or needle-work, find a way to include these in your decorations.
