Today’s earthy and elegant rustic wedding was inspired by the growing trend of glam prairie destination weddings! Celebrity brides like Allison Williams and Kate Bosworth looked to the wide open spaces of Montana and Wyoming for privacy and serenity, but the beauty of the sweeping plains and stark landscape are attracting a whole new crop of couples!
The down to earth setting and rugged beauty is no reason to sacrifice glamour – as today’s elegant rustic inspiration and luxurious detailing can attest! Rolling prairies and distant mountains inspired the palette of dusty greens and blues, along with earthy neutral shades of taupe and brown. A ceremony against the wall of an old barn embraces the rustic setting while still keeping the sweeping sky overhead, and surrounding guests in the beauty of nature. Centerpieces of sweetgrass, dusty miller, and branches are dotted by exotic flowers to add a layer to the textures of the prairie, while cut crystal decanters ranging down wood farm tables add a sheen of glamour to the great outdoors. Effortless natural textures carry on to the wedding cake, with a garland of sugar feathers and delicate ruffles, in the same sun bleached blue as the sky.
The rugged surroundings are no reason to sacrifice style, and a layered tulle ball gown can feel perfectly at home amidst even the wildest plain. An elegant updo and glittering shoes are complemented by a loose, hand-tied bouquet and a delicate headpiece of gold branches to tie into the outdoorsy space. The blend of natural and glam elements is the perfect union of designs!
