If you consider yourself eco-friendly, I’m sure having nature incorporated into your wedding is a high priority. Rustic weddings have become a popular wedding trend in recent years. We love the whimsical, earthy looks that have popped up on modern bridal magazines and blogs. Here’s how to incorporate your love of nature into your big day.

The venue

Wedding planners are always saying how important the wedding venue is when planning your big day. You’ll be looking back on your wedding for years, and having an affordable and beautiful venue is key. For nature lovers, the venue should be outdoors or in a rustic setting. Pennsylvania wedding venues are a great option for couples who love the outdoors and a mountain backdrop. Imagine getting married in the middle of a lush Pennslyvania forest? Other great venue options are local parks, the beach, farms, or even a family member’s backyard.

Flowers

Not just the flowers you will be carrying down the aisle, but you can also incorporate flowers into your decor. You can purchase locally grown flowers at local greenhouses and farmer’s markets if you’re having a Spring or Summer wedding. You can incorporate flowers as a part of your nature theme by using them for centerpieces, on the backs of chairs, or by getting married under a flower adorned trellis. You can also make a trendy floral hairpiece instead of having a veil.

The food

It’s important to have food options that both you and your guests will love. Try contacting local catering companies to see where they source their ingredients. Plan your menu in accordance with what fresh produce is in season and reach out to local farmers and vendors to see if they can cater your wedding. Locally sourced food trucks are a hot wedding trend, as well as naked cakes adorned with flowers. For the drinks, try to search around for bartenders that offer natural cocktail infusions.

The atmosphere

An outdoor wedding is a key to inviting nature to see your big day. You’re looking for an elegant, yet laid-back look for your natural wedding. Make sure to have casual seating like blankets, tree stumps, bales of hay during the reception and ceremony. If you’re having a farm wedding, see if the farm has animals that visitors can feed and pet during cocktail hour. Set out recycling and compost bins to show your support for protecting nature.
