Rustic Wedding Invitations

For a long time now country and rustic themed wedding invitations have been one of the most popular choices among the themed wedding crowd. The reasons for this vary as much as the couples getting married. But there is one stand out reason why you should consider these beautiful options.


By far the most unique and varied styles of invitations you will see come in the rustic, or one of the sub themes, corner.

Here you will find the most room for expression, creativity as well as selection. Many of the other wedding invitation templates you will see here play on the traditional themes that wedding create. Rustic weddings are different in the respect to personal freedom.

Rustic weddings are often less formal, more friendly and generally more fun that many of the weddings celebrated in the past. But that doesn’t mean that they do not have their place. These styles of wedding do and we will look at them again in a moment.

First let’s look at some of the other styles and options available in the rustic wedding invitation set.

Country Wedding Invitations

There is often some confusion, a little skepticism and maybe some dismay when visitors find out there country and rustic are not the same thing. A country wedding invitation often has a very different look and feel compared to the rustic counterparts that you might not even think that they belong in the same category. But they do.

Rustic is the parent category for all things, well for lack of a better word. Rustic. A country template on the other hand is a more specific type of rustic wedding invitation template that often incorporates features you would find around a barnyard.

So what is the big difference?

First they go more in the direction of farming, often including aspects of a cowboy, country and western flare as well as horseshoes that doesn’t necessarily work with the general rustic category.

They also have a more Fall related theme, though this is not always the case, which is why you will often find them incorporating symbolism from the Fall. Sunflowers, fallen leaves and other things may adorn these types of country templates. For anyone planning to get married in the late Summer, or early Fall you might want to explore these templates to find your wedding invitation.

Woodland Wedding Invitations

This is definitely one of the most frequently used styles of rustic weddings. Especially since many of the outdoor weddings we celebrate today take place in the presence of trees. Either in front of one or surrounded by them. We have a wide selection of these to share with you.

And the rustic aspect is undeniable when you look at the many different color schemes you can choose from. From rich greens to the earthy brown of a forest floor. The woodland templates should be one of your first stops when it comes to finding a rustic invitation.

Traditional Wedding Invitations

Before we continue we should look at this from a different perspective. Namely what is traditional? Is it a look, a trend or a style from years ago? If you agree then I think that you will agree that they really aren’t traditional, they are vintage options. And we have lots of them as well. But years ago the styles that we often cite as being traditional were merely contemporary wedding invitations. So with that what should we be looking for when we say traditional wedding invitation in the context of a template.

First and foremost what people mean when they say “traditional” is not that the template should be old, rather that they are looking for a simpler template. And that might be better phrased as elegant.

But if it is elegant, then you can find that just as easily among the rustic options. A truly elegant template is one that makes you feel comfortable, one that has the simplicity to present you and your further spouse to the world at large. And that cannot be summarized with a single word. So to give you some options lets look further at this extensive selection of wedding invitations and the templates that you’ll find in these categories.

Black and White Invitation Templates

You can replace black with a deep off gray and white with an ivory of other light color for a traditional elegant design.

We’ve got plenty of them throughout the site for you to customize so you don’t have to pick one theme over another. Just pick the one that you like and let the rest take care of itself.

Vintage Wedding Invitations
