A Perfect Marriage of Rustic Inspiration & Modern Styling


Blush tones have long been classics, but 2018 has seen them dominate when it comes to wedding styling.  As we near the end of the year and look to 2019, we are seeing this blush palette take a darker, more sophisticated turn with the blush tones having more depth and being offset by ochre accents and maroon flashes. This colour combination lends itself so well to a modern, chic take on the much loved rustic wedding style.  Naked wedding cakes continue to have their moment, looking just as at home in a classic hotel as in a countryside barn venue.  A naked wedding cake will always vary in its state of undress, but the beauty is that they provide a wonderful canvas for embellishment and decoration.  Incorporate berries that nod to your dessert table or flowers that match the blooms in your table arrangements.

Table settings and how you serve your wedding menu are great ways to bring in a touch of modernity to enhance the rustic style.  Layering up when it comes to table settings is a great way to add modern detail.  Using charger plates, matching gold with blush, and bringing in accents with coloured napkins will give a modern balance to your wedding decor and styling.  Your flowers may be oozing rustic charm, but by adding variations in height and of the moment touches such as copper and marble you instantly bring a modern wedding style into the mix.
