Rustic Chic Wedding Theme
Weiss assures us that rustic weddings show no signs of slowing down for 2013! Tutera agrees: "The key is starting with a great location — once you have that, you can create complementary décor." Whether you're throwing a garden, country or vineyard wedding, Tutera tells us that all great rustic celebrations have three things in common: They showcase a natural landscape, use wood in multiple ways and incorporate pieces that look like they could exist in your home or garden.
For example, the ceremony below (planned by Mindy Weiss Events), features an aisle runner made out of reclaimed wood and flowers that look like they were plucked straight from the bride's garden. In keeping with the natural theme, the couple's four-legged companion wore a sweet floral garland and the bridesmaids were outfitted in long chiffon dresses in varying neutral hues (not pictured). For your reception, David Tutera advises using wine barrels as décor; you can even convert one into a bar or cocktail table!
