Nothing compares to the simplistic beauty of a rustic wedding. It’s a theme that encourages guests to relax and have fun in a country atmosphere that looks effortlessly beautiful! But, even a relaxed wedding can get expensive quickly. FiveSense Farm specializes in affordable rustic weddings, so we put together some money-saving tips here.
Get Flowers That Are In-Season
Flowers that are out of season usually have to be ordered, sometimes from far away, which naturally drives up costs. Talk to your florist about which flowers are in season during your wedding, and see if you can get your arrangements made from those varieties.
Do Some Networking
The rustic look is all the rage in Middle Tennessee right now, so buying antiqued furniture, natural wood discs, burlap, hay bales, lanterns, etc. can cost A LOT of money. So start asking around! Many brides probably have things left over from their weddings, or maybe a co-worker has some perfect farmhouse furniture you can use.
Also, hit up the local farmer’s market! You may be able to score some free tree stumps, low-priced hay bales, or find someone willing to let you take some fresh wildflowers from an uncut field.
Make the Party Smaller
Nothing runs up the cost of a wedding quicker than the guest count! It’s important to figure out how many guests your budget can handle and stick to that number. Don’t be afraid to whittle it down!
Keep It Simple
A good farm venue should have plenty of one thing: natural beauty. Choosing a gorgeous natural venue with top-notch landscaping and scenery will save you loads of money on flowers and other decor, and your pictures will look wonderful.
