Rustic Allure


The Western style has influenced the weddings of many couples from around the world for many years. The royal or classical wedding themes used to be a favorite as they exude a feeling of grandeur. However, a theme that is gaining popularity these days is rustic. Rustic comes from Latin rus meaning “the country”. When we talk about a rustic wedding, it means having simplicity and charm that is considered typical of the countryside, and the marriage celebration of William and Caroline had just that.

A rustic theme is usually signified by some rosy pastels such as pink, coral, and blush. However, since the bride was not too keen on those colors, we gave it a little twist by using a color palette inspired by hydrangeas – the flowers used in the décor – which are soft blue, white, and ivory. Other different types of flowers emphasized the color scheme, for example, white lilies and pink and white roses.

William and Caroline couldn’t have picked a better venue for their chosen wedding theme. The walls and floors in Rasa restaurant at the Intercontinental Hotel truly helped with the theme as terra-cotta is one of the major elements in a rustic wedding. Another important component is natural colored wood which we used in the forms of picture frames, candlesticks, and flower holders. There is also a wall in the restaurant that is made of rows of dark wood. As white is essential in a wedding, we also placed white furniture around the room.

William and Caroline have proven to be a committed couple who has survived a long distance relationship. Although they were still in the same country, they were living on different islands. For anyone in love, distance, even if only a few hours drive away to a different city, can be extremely unbearable. We, at Butterfly, felt happy to witness the end of that long distance and the start of their new lives together.
