Throw a country chic wedding
Today is ‘International Day of Rural Women’ and it got us thinking how amazing a country chic wedding would be…
Are you from the country and proud of it – or do you simply love the countryside? Either way a country inspired wedding has acres of potential. Here’s what you need…
A relaxed, boho-inspired wedding dress would look great at a countryside wedding. Floral or blush are two other great options.
Cute homemade jam or honey pots, seed packets or potted plants would make fantastic favours for your guests.
The ultimate countryside wedding venue is of course a barn. There are lots of venues countrywide including Breckenhill and Larchfield Barn in Antrim, Loughcrew House & Barn in Meath, or Mount Druid in Westmeath, click here for more details.
You may even want to invite your pets to your special day to act as ring bearer, to hold a sign, or simply look cute in your wedding photos.
Think patchwork or paisley print, jam jars, tin jugs and urns for centerpieces overflowing with wild flowers, babies breath, and oversized blooms.
The most fun part of the wedding – a rural inspired dessert table will feature homemade scones with dollops of jam and cream, or a mouth-watering naked wedding cake. A dessert table stocked with homemade apple and rhubarb pie would also go down well. Serve desserts on tree trunk slices or with flowers and foliage.
Happy International Day of Rural Women day!
