Every season has its trends and weddings are no exception. But one trend that’s quickly proving itself a style classic is rustic-themed weddings. We adore the raw beauty of rustic themes and Vintage Hotels has the perfect awe-inspiring venues to bring all the elements of your rustic wedding together.
Set in the heart of Niagara wine country and other choice romantic destinations in Ontario, Vintage Hotels offers five incredible properties to choose from and a dedicated, professional wedding coordinator to help create your dream day. Get ready to wow your guests with the top three things we love about going rustic.
In or out, anything goes
One of the best things about rustic is that the ‘rules’ are a little looser. Because this style is largely captured in details of the décor, you’ll have more flexibility with the venue. Whether you decide to host your ceremony and reception indoors or out, you can use natural elements like wood and greenery-based centrepieces or farmhouse metal accessories, to capture the rustic look. The Millcroft Inn & Spa has the perfect natural backdrop for a picturesque rustic wedding, any time of year. If you are looking for the perfect indoor rustic wedding venue, (with better air conditioning and plumbing than a barn!) consider the unique rustic charm of Pillar & Post in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
Romance, romance, romance
There’s something about being close to the raw beauty of nature that ramps up romance. Sometimes even more in a glammed-up venue like The Prince of Wales Hotel. The combination of lavish classic and rustic natural beauty is always breathtaking – picture fine champagne linens topped with luscious greens, white birch, and wild flowers – all sparkling under the soft light of gorgeous chandeliers.
Because rustic themes are so flexible, there are so many ways to personalize your wedding without worrying about upholding a particular style. Everything from your flowers to favours can be in its own class – blending different elements is what rustic is all about. Pillar & Post offers the best of both worlds in terms of going indoors or out, with both indoor and outdoor ceremony locations, and versatile and private reception spaces that allow each bride the flexibility to create her own personal fairy tale.
