Choose a Rustic Wedding Venue

The Sherwood Chalet at Forest Lodge is the perfect rustic chic wedding venue for your big day. With areas both inside and outside your guests will be pleased with the grounds of Forest Lodge. You do not need a barn to enjoy the country vibe, the Sherwood Chalet offers the idyllic setting for the rustic wedding of your dreams.

Semi Naked Wedding Cake

A semi naked cake not only tastes delicious but adds to the rustic decor of your special day. Interestingly enough, since these cakes do not have copious amounts of buttercream and fondant, they are more likely to be made fresh! Another check mark for a perfect wedding day, no one wants a dry wedding cake.

Outdoor Areas for Guests 

There is no better way to add to the rustic vibe than to have an outdoor area for your guests to enjoy. The deck and the patio at the Forest Lodge create the perfect setting for a cocktail hour with a full bar and catering available. End your night at the fire pit with your guests taking in the fresh air with loved ones.

Wear a Rustic Flower Crown 

Embrace your inner hippy with a beautiful, rustic, flower crown. The bold colors of the flowers will pair beautifully with the simplicity of your white gown. To create even more of a rustic vibe, be sure to include greenery in the crown. You can even ask your florist to have your crown match your bouquets to complete the look and bring everything together. 

Include Signs in Your Decor

Handmade wooden signs with notable sayings are the perfect way to welcome your guests. This can be a fun DIY project for you and your bridal party. Or if you prefer to purchase there are tons of small vendors selling beautiful pieces that you can place around the wedding venue to leave your guests laughing and smiling. 

Use Logs as Card Place Holders 

Using logs as card place holders is another simple and delightful wedding piece that will leave your tables looking perfect. Better yet, your guests will be able to take these home and remember your wedding day forever. Not only are they easy to make but they offer a simple yet unique touch to your rustic wedding day.

Use of String Lights 

String lights are the latest trend right now. Light up the venue with string lights. You can decorate the tables, string the lights around the room, and even light up the outdoors! Add a warm glow to your wedding with an abundance of decorative string lights.

DIY Wedding Favors

Your guests will be able to feel your gratitude for their attendance with a heartfelt, DIY, party favor. Do not worry, the best thing about a rustic theme is that your favors can showcase the simplicity and uniqueness. Some of our favorite ideas are; jars of jam, succulents, mason jar popcorn, hand pickled veggies, or honey! The ideas do not end here, feel free to have fun with it.
