Rustic Elegance Wedding Inspiration

Updated: May 2, 2022

There's no doubt that rustic weddings have continued to be one of the most popular wedding styles for the past few years. They usually feature natural textures, wooden elements, and pops of earthy greenery. Recently, we have seen brides opting for a new variation of the rustic wedding style; rustic elegance. Rustic-elegant weddings tend to tie in refined design elements such as unique lighting features, pops of white and gold, and classic florals with greenery. Keep reading to see some of our favorite elements of rustic elegant wedding designs!

Gold and White Details

The Cotton Dock House at Boone Hall Plantation is a rustic venue that offers a blank wooden canvas- perfect for elegant decor. Long farm tables lined with green garlands, candles, and gold and white chairs creates an elegant, rustic feel. For a luxurious and detailed look try hanging intricate gold and crystal chandeliers from the wooden beams. Utilize the covered outdoor dock as a romantic ceremony space complete with Café Lights and more greenery to frame your ceremony. Lastly, you can create a romantic cocktail area on the front patio by adding an elegant white bar and cocktail tables adorned with rustic lanterns to create the perfect combination of rustic and elegant.

Beauty in Simplicity

This design is an example of a more simplistic version of rustic elegance! Although Lowndes Grove isn't necessarily a rustic venue, its natural elements and riverfront views can add a rustic and earthy feeling! Incorporating wooden furniture, classic florals, and pops of blue made this design the perfect combination of rustic and elegant. Hanging Café Lights in the clear top tent illuminates the space with a warm glow that matches the iconic Charleston sunset. For the outdoor area at Lowndes Grove, we love the combination of Café Lights and a fire-pit to create a cozy and relaxed atmosphere as night sets in!

Greenery Galore

Here is another stunning example of an elegant wedding inside the rustic walls of the Cotton Dock House. For a classic look, feature light wooden tones, white table cloths, and candles with white and green florals! You can transform the ceiling by adding an installation of lush greenery complete with our Hanging Glass Orbs encompassing tea lights throughout. Adding glass elements to your design can help create an elegant vibe in your rustic space. Add a warm glow over the dance floor by hanging our golden Gloster Chandeliers! The romantic atmosphere came together by blending elegant decor with the rustic wedding venue.
