How To Create A Rustic Style Wedding In Edmonton
Rustic Weddings have been a growing trend in Edmonton since last year and we are seeing more and more couples now opting for a relaxed, homely and handmade vibe for their wedding.
The idea of a rustic wedding is seen by many brides and grooms to be a more laid back, simple yet elegant escape from a fast paced world of electronics, smart phones and the manufactured surrounding we live and work in every day.

A rustic wedding is also Eco friendly and a great way to cut those expensive wedding costs thanks to the DIY wedding projects you can make yourself and the ability to use elements and decorations from nature itself.
A Rustic Wedding Is Whatever You Want It To Be
The are no set rules about what should be included in a rustic wedding - there are endless possibilities. When we talk about rustic, it is an umbrella term that pulls inspiration from many sources. You can not only have a country, garden or farm backdrop, but rustic could also include a barn or vintage style setting, even your own backyard can make for a great rustic wedding setting.

We know many couples in Edmonton who opt for a rustic style wedding and hold a reception at The Country Lodge, a 6000 sq. ft. log chalet on a 17 acre ranch which is actually situated in the city at 17515-127 Street.
How To Bring That Rustic Wedding Style
To bring that rustic style to the wedding day, couples could incorporate items that reflect the wedding's location, such as pine cones, mason jars, wooden signs and various size vases along with other more natural touches they can create themselves.
Homemade jams, honey or hot chocolate mix favors are a great way to thank your guests for coming and make for colorful, novel centerpieces.
Incorporate Mason Jars
Mason Jars are also a great way to add some rustic appeal to your wedding. Use colored glass or add some lace around the mason jar for a really romantic look. Place one on each table or use them to light the aisle as the bride and groom enter the room. You can also add fairy lights or tea candles in mason jars and hang them from trees to create an amazing ambiance. As the sun sets on the wedding day the twinkling candle lights will make for a very romantic atmosphere.

Other great ways to add rustic lighting to your wedding include hanging distressed lanterns or bird cages with candles in them. Mason Jars and vintage bottle can also make for great flower containers on tables as shown in the images below.

Add Birch And Lace
One idea we have seen a lot of our wedding clients who opt for a rustic wedding do is to add birch wood slices under their floral centerpieces with twine and lace accents. You can purchase these from a local craft store.
Other Rustic Wedding Ideas
Wooden signs with message or slogans on them can be a great way to add humor and more country appeal to your wedding. You can make these yourself or buy them from Etsy or other online crafting websites.
