Rust, terracotta and burnt orange are all hues that are currently dominating the wedding scene due largely to the wave that is Rustcore, coming into fashion, beauty and decor across social media platforms.

While neutral subtle tones such as cream, ivory, cotton and hessian will always stand the test of time, providing an effortless chic, more and more couples are adding splashes of colour to their big day, embellishing on the classic trend with the addition of earthy rich tones and textures to elicit warm and inviting feel to their big day.

The key component to a successful rustcore wedding is your wedding location, your wedding venue, ceremony and reception should draw from the landscape with earthy, rural, rocky locations and vibrant green foliage that will help set off your rustcore aesthetics and complement this chestnut and copper palette. Did you know? Copper is said to traditionally represent prosperity, good luck and good fortune – what better element to include at the start of your chapter as newlyweds!


Embrace the rustcore trend from your wedding invitations to your personal look, adding pops of hue where you can – adding as little or as much as you want. Dress your bridesmaids and groomsmen in terracotta silk gowns or rust-coloured cravats to tie in effortlessly. Gold jewellery, copper and bronze embellishments, pampas grass and autumnal-looking florals will help achieve the look.

Clay-based ceramics, rose gold and woven fabrics are key to the rustcore wedding decor for your venue. The ideas and possibilities are endless! Combine with exposed wood, burnt orange roses, satin tablecloths and warm lighting of string lights to create the perfect, and very romantic, rustcore wedding combo. You could take it even a step further and serve your reception cocktails in copper mugs and pair them with gold flatware at your reception tables!

Rustcore will undoubtedly WOW your guests, aim for subtle impact through your attention to detail and find natural ways to incorporate this wedding theme without overdoing it.
