Hot new wedding trends for styles, themes and colors for the modern bride and groom include simple and homey or flashy and elegant. This year’s weddings seem to be going more toward down-home and country with the popular wedding theme Rustic Country or Chic & Shabby.
The Rustic Country theme wedding is usually held in an outdoor setting with lots of western or ranch theme decor. Having the wedding or reception in a country barn is the hot trend this year. Many people with ranches or farms are renting out their barns for weddings and special events as a way to bring in additional income. Brides and grooms are going for this popular theme in a big way.
Wedding accessory designers are matching this hot trend for rustic country by providing all the wedding ceremony and reception accessories to match the down-home country colors and designs. Burlap and lace are used in these designs as well as rustic wood pieces and natural cotton fabrics. Colors of ivory with rust or shades of brown or dusty rose & champagne go well with this theme.
