an elegant & rustic nature-inspired wedding ideas
With a love of nature, bringing that inspiration into your wedding can be so sophisticated and beautiful. Using natural fibres in your linens and stationery is a good start. Keeping with an earthy neutral colour palette will let the nature inspired tone of your wedding shine. Tip: Make sure to stay away from high gloss or shiny metallic finishes, (unless you’re throwing in a modern twist).
I can talk your ear off mostly about stationery (obvi.) , so here’s a list of tips for setting the tone of your elegant (slightly rustic) nature-inspired wedding with your invitations
Use natural white paper (not bright white) will add a gentleness to your invitations. Bright white paper tend to be too modern for this style.
Use 100% cotton or 100% recycled thick card stock paper (ideally with an eggshell finish so that it doesn’t look too smooth)
Handmade paper is a beautiful option — it’s incredibly soft and has an organic and natural tone with it’s deckled edges (whatever colour you choose of this paper, it will still have that organic, natural tone)
Keeping the design minimal with accents in envelope colour or liners to make your invitations elegant. Try a floral or greenery liner or a deep sage colour envelope to add some colour.
If you love wax seals (which start at only about $2.85 each), stick to antique metallics or ivory.
