Since Pinterest began and flooded brides and grooms with inspiration for planning your big day, it’s becoming increasingly harder to find something different that hasn’t been done before. But it doesn’t mean you can’t put your own take on that wedding style idea.

I have to say when I saw my recent bride Emily use wheat to style her Blue Mountains wedding, I had not seen wheat used before and loved how she used the wheat combined with wildflowers, foliage and twine in the barn at Seclusions.

Country Wedding Inspiration - incorporating wheat into your big day - country wedding in the Blue Mountains


Country weddings have been a trend for a while now. And as couples are more inclined to celebrate their special day in a more relaxed, casual, party atmosphere, country weddings in barns offer the perfect venue.

Including natural, eco-friendly elements make sense. Using details like wheat which comes from the land is a great way of adding natural touches. Foliage from the local bush environment for your woodland themed wedding is also a great way to save some dollars, then you can be more extravagant with the quantity of foliage.

One of the biggest failures I have seen with DIY styling over the years, has simply been not using enough to get the desired impact. That’s where hiring a professional stylist really pays off – they are great with how much to use, plus through texturing and layering your details, gives your styling that professional look.


Some ways to incorporate wheat into your wedding day …


1. The Bouquet

Typically, a bouquet is made up of fresh flowers, natives and green foliage.  While we have seen some alternative bouquets popping up, such as brooch bouquets, how about adding wheat to your bouquet.


2. Buttonholes

Naturally if you have wheat in your bouquet, you will want your Groom and groomsmen wearing wheat as their buttonhole.


3. Venue Details & Table Centrepieces 

Hanging bunches of wheat around your venue to continue your country theme.

Filling your table centrepieces with flowers can be expensive. Wheat is an inexpensive centrepiece option. Then simply add personal touches by sprinkling confetti, adding fresh flowers or foliage, and ribbons or twine.


4. Place settings

Continue the theme in your place settings using wheat stems. Tie these to your napkins and add a name tag for a quaint decoration to set the theme of your country wedding.
