19 Décor Ideas for a Gorgeous Rustic Ceremony

Personalize your ceremony with details that stand out.
by Andrea Fowler

A rustic wedding theme can mean different things to different people (think: rustic glam, shabby chic, ranch rustic), but the overall aesthetic remains the same: organic elements like wood tables or chairs, flowing floral arrangements, scenic outdoor venues and a few personalized vintage touches.

Start the wedding day off with some unique ceremony decor—it'll help to set the vibe for the rest of the celebration. Check out some of our favorite ideas below.
