Rustic Greenery – Gorgeous Barn Wedding Inspiration Brimming with Greenery
I am loving the current obsession with all things green, aren’t you?? And I can’t think of a more fitting space to embrace this trend than a barn…. But if you’re thinking a barn is too rustic a venue for the elegant celebration you have in mind, think again! Because barns are no longer just the venue of choice for cowboy boot rocking rustic brides, oh no! Today a barn wedding can be every bit as elegant or luxurious as any historic estate or mansion…..

I have long thought barns make the most wonderful venues, and love when couples today embrace their rustic charm whilst also adding a layer of luxury and glamour – be that with florals, linens or lighting. Such large spaces though can be costly to decorate, which is why I wanted to use greenery for this inspiration board (and of course it continues to be a key wedding trend!) Although it still needs the eye of a florist to make it look lovely, adding greenery to your floral arrangements is a cost effective way to fill big venues and create an air of opulence without breaking the bank!
The key to this oh so chic look is simplicity, it is the ultimate sophistication after all! Keeping the palette to shades of just 3 neutral colours – ivory, green and gold (or bronze) creates an elegant effect that is utterly timeless.
Of course if greenery isn’t your thing there are plenty of other wedding colours and inspiration boards perfect for Summer and you will find lots in CVB’s archives! Like this ethereal beach beauty in jade & sand, this elegant and glamorous inspiration board in overwhelmingly pretty blush and this fun mint & peach palette just perfect for a garden wedding. Or for a trio that truly evokes the long days of Summer take a peek at this red, white & blue beauty – so much more elegant than it sounds.
