Rustic outdoor wedding ideas from Pinterest
Let me start by saying that you will find an endless list of simple rustic outdoor wedding ideas on Pinterest.
It’s the one source I turn to find amazing wedding ideas.
We wanted to mention, that when looking for rustic wedding ideas, you first need to consider your wedding venue.
If you can find a wedding venue that matches your wedding theme, then you will spend less money decorating it.
Ensure that your rustic wedding decorations match the look and feel of the venue.
If you are not sure about choosing your wedding venue, I highly suggested going to Google and typing rustic wedding venues + your city name.
This will show you the results of the top wedding venues that normally cater to rustic weddings.
From here you will look at some photos, decide if you somehow like the weddings you see, then consider your wedding budget.
Can you afford the location? Another thing to keep in mind is the wedding decorations.
Does the venue require a lot of decorations to make it feel and look like you want?
The less you require, the better for your wedding budget!
Rustic outdoor wedding ceremony
If you are looking for simple rustic outdoor wedding ideas, make sure you choose an environment that works.
This way, you can use the natural setting of the place as your background.
Depending on how well of a venue you pick, your rustic outdoor wedding ceremony decorations will be extremely minimal.

Totally in love with how simple the rustic wedding decorations are.
You can totally grab some bottles from Amazon, add some of your own flowers (one stem in different colours) and tie it up to an arch with fish wire.

Rustic Wedding Sign Ideas

Check out this Twilight-inspired rustic glam wedding on Marry Me Tampa Bay’s site.
This rustic wedding sign is perfect for any outdoor wedding.
Wedding signs are essential especially when planning an outdoor wedding.
You want to direct your guests to where you want them to go, what to do next and where they can find essential areas such as the washroom, ceremony location, and the reception hall!
I definitely find weddings with lack of directions somehow not well put together!
If your wedding venue is pretty direct, they are sometimes no need for extra signage! But if your guests will need to figure things out, add signage!

Totally in love with this rustic wedding signage which will fit well with your rustic outdoor wedding ideas.
They are perfect for lining up your wedding aisle.
The floral decor is simply fitting.
Rustic Wedding Guest Book
This alternative to a wedding guest book is perfect to include in your rustic outdoor wedding ideas wedding plan.
To recreate this look, grab an old ladder, grab some natural twine, and tie it on the ladder as seen above.
Use tiny wooden clothespins to hold your engagement photos or photos of you as a couple.
The old-looking ladder definitely gives a rustic look. If you are lucky, you can find ladders like these at garage sales!

Outdoorsy Wedding Favours
Don’t forget your wedding favours!
But please keep in mind that you do not need to have wedding favours if you do not want to!
It’s not a necessity and it can become really expensive if you are getting one for each person at a wedding.
If you do decide to use wedding favours, this one is really cute!
