If you describe your wedding vibe as natural, western or rustic, a country-style wedding may be for you! Once you decide on your wedding style and venue, it’s time to find your dream wedding dress! Keep reading to learn more about country wedding dresses and to see some of our top picks for the bride having a rustic wedding!
What is a Country Wedding Dress?
Country wedding dresses can come in a variety of silhouettes and styles. Still, a common thread is that they are ethereal, often lightweight and easy to move in and aren’t overly embellished with crystals and beading. They can often include vintage or bohemian design elements, like beautiful floral laces, fringe or flowy A-line skirts that dance in the wind.
What do I Look for in a Country Wedding Dress?
When shopping for a country wedding gown, remember where your wedding is taking place! Dresses that are lightweight, easy to move in and include nods to nature, like floral or vine motifs, are stunning for an outdoor wedding. For a boho country wedding, try a gown with bell sleeves, fringe or a flowy lace-embellished A-line skirt.
What is a Rustic Wedding Dress?
Rustic wedding dresses are often more casual but no less stunning! This style is all about simplicity, natural elements and an effortless feel. Rustic wedding dresses are usually made of lace, tulle, crepe or chiffon, with typical wedding dress silhouettes being A-lines, sheaths, columns and fit-and-flares. The bride looking to have a rustic wedding may choose a gown with crocheted lace, a nude lining or a super simple style.
Rustic Wedding Ideas
From rustic décor to organic flower arrangements, there are endless rustic wedding ideas you can choose from. To really embody this aesthetic, focus on using natural materials like wood, burlap and twine. This will add warmth and texture to your tablescapes, centerpieces and bouquets for an intimate rustic vibe. Another must-have decoration is the classic mason jar — these versatile little containers can be used as candle holders, drinking glasses or flower vases to give your rustic wedding that charming finishing touch!
What is the Difference Between Country and Rustic Wedding Dresses?
When differentiating between country and rustic wedding dresses, the differences are few, if any, and the words country and rustic are often interchanged. Country wedding dresses may be more whimsical or glam than rustic wedding dresses, depending on the details and where the wedding is taking place.
For example, a barn wedding may be more casual, whereas a wedding in a forest or a vineyard may have a more enchanted or sophisticated vibe and lean toward a country wedding. Regardless of how your gown may be described, the key is finding one that makes you feel your best! Now let’s take a look at some of our favorite country wedding dresses.
