Traditional rustic/country wedding style includes genuine leather, nubuck, suede and denim fabric. This does not mean that you have to cut in leather or denim dress. Add some elements from these materials and you keep up with fashion. And here are a couple of ideas for inspiration:

  • Cape or jacket over a dress, a bandage on hair, shoes or clutch made from denim.
  • Belt for a dress, jewelry, clutch, boots, sandals or ballet flats made from leather.

But not every wedding dress supplemented by such accessories is a rustic wedding style. Below we describe the favorite country-worthy wedding dresses that perfectly fit into the concept of a rustic wedding style.
