Breathtaking DIY Rustic Wedding

It’s been a life-long dream of mine to have a rustic style wedding. Now that we’re planning to have one, I started to look for ideas on the internet. I found the majority of my inspiration from Pinterest and a few on other blogs. I also tried visiting nearby antique shops to see unique things for my dream wedding. It’s a long process, and it takes time and effort, but it is all for a good cause.


I like DIYs because it is where I can express my sense of style. With an extra pair of helping hands, a DIY rustic wedding is easy to achieve. You just need enough time for the preparation. Renting wedding services is much more comfortable but can get costly. I prefer to invest my money in something more sensible. I want the colors light and pleasing to the eyes such as ivory, peach, pale pink, and cream. Since it’s rustic, brown and a touch of gold is beautiful.

Any bride wishes for that one-of-a-kind wedding invite that makes an impression. Customized is the best way to go and fortunately, it is now possible with Mixbook. Simply visit their website, upload pictures, choose the theme, and that’s it! Easily select from a pre-designed template or even create one from scratch! Mixbook also offers personalized wedding guest books too!.

I want our dress motif to be simple and comfortable. For the gents, white long sleeves and dark pants will do, with a touch of peach or ivory bow ties to balance. A brown shoe of their choice is also recommended to complete the outfit. For the ladies, I don’t want to put too much pressure on them to wear a heavy dress. Just like the guys, I want them to be comfortable, so a simple white dress with a nice cut is just perfect. As for their footwear, a pair of heels is preferred, but flats are acceptable. As long as they wear the same color palette given, it’s okay.

Wedding gown
The wedding gown is one of the highlights of the occasion, so it is best to give attention to it. For me, I want it simple yet elegant looking. A gown-like dress is what I want, and the color would be the traditional white. To enhance my curves, I will use Bali Lace ‘N Smooth® Bodybriefer. Definitely in color white to match my gown. I choose Bali Lace ‘N Smooth® Bodybriefer because it is comfortable, I can wear it all day long and accents my natural curves. It would also help conceal my post-pregnancy belly and love handles. All of these, without sacrificing the comfort.

I want to hire a professional florist because I want a floral backdrop for photo ops and a flower arch where the ceremony will be held. Since I am unsure if I can DIY this part of my wedding, I’ll just leave it to the expert. I can already imagine all the beautiful memories and photos to be made.

Accessories are also important. In our tradition, we have this thing where the bride is supposed to wear something old, something new, and something borrowed. For that new accessory, I want to wear the perfect earrings that will match my dress, but preferably not the usual choice of diamond. Which is why I chose to wear a Charles & Colvard moissanite studs earrings on my wedding day. Why? It is after all the world’s most brilliant gem. Plus they have plenty of designs to choose from.

Aside from the accessories, I also want my manicure to be chic and glamorous. For my nails, it is an obvious choice –Zoya Nail Polish because of its big-10 free, breathable formula. Plus, they have pretty colors to choose from to match any style and look. Since I want my wedding to have soft colors, either Jordan (ZP886), Leia (ZP835) and Abby (ZP887) is a perfect choice. Zoya’s Abby Nail Polish is my personal favorite.

Pinterest is a great place for DIY ideas, so decorating is a lot easier. A few clicks and a dream DIY rustic wedding is possible. Add mason jars, wooden tables, wood accessories such as pallets and frames, as well as antique treasures that will work as additional decoration, repurpose “old” furniture and voila!

I want my ring to be unique yet still affordable because at the end of the day, what will matter most is the memories, so I choose Charles & Colvard once again since they offer quality jewelry without the need of spending too much.

To keep my wedding ring safe and with me at all times, I am also getting a RingHero. RingHero is a wristband that will help secure my treasured ring inside its zippered pocket. I can do all sorts of activity worry free!
