Boughs of greenery hanging overhead. Long wooden tables draped in lace and burlap. Chunky candleholders, chandeliers with Edison bulbs, groomsmen in tan suits and plaid bow ties, and lots and lots of charm. Rustic weddings incorporate lots of natural elements and encourage a relaxed atmosphere for a wedding that’s more laidback than luxe. These rustic wedding invitations give your guests a hint of what your big day has in store for those lucky enough to score a seat.

1. Pinecone Allure

Fall weddings are more popular than ever, so why not hold your ceremony on the edge of a forest? An indoor gathering in a cabin or even a chalet can accommodate your love of nature as chilly weather takes over, and Pinecone Allure is the perfect way to invite your guests. Evergreen sprigs and pinecones circle your names and wedding details, giving this suite a simple yet rustic look.

2. Lace Country

If you’re dreaming of a rustic wedding that still feels sweet and a touch feminine, you’ll likely love Lace Country. A beautiful lavender backdrop, intricate lace, and delicate script come together for an elegant result that works as easily for a backyard wedding as it does for a larger reception at a country estate or ranch.

This suite is a great option for city dwellers that might want to infuse an urban venue like a warehouse or event center with natural décor to honor where they are as well as where they came from.

7. Carved in Love

Have you and your sweetheart ever etched your names into a tree trunk? Or perhaps you’ve just seen it done in a movie and nearly swooned over the sheer romance.

8. Rustic Peacock

Not all rustic invitations involve lace or kraft paper. Rustic Peacock takes laid-back wedding stationery in a more whimsical direction thanks to a giant peacock feather on the front of the invite and a pair of wandering birds keeping watch on the reverse. The bright splashes of color are unusual for a rustic wedding and yet fit right in with a nature-inspired theme. Or use this invite as inspiration to go full throttle on an all-peacock wedding with blues, purples, greens, and feathers galore.

11. Eternal Autumn

Take a trip to the darker side of rustic wedding invitations with Eternal Autumn. This design starts with a striking black background that looks almost like a chalkboard (a point for rustic charm).

Love in the Woods offers an almost cartoonish spin on nature-inspired graphic design.
