It is undeniable that it is becoming more and more popular to celebrate the big day away from chaos of the city. A city affair has a modern and contemporary feeling, but rustic weddings are so charming. Rolling hills and pastoral views add a natural romance to the big day. Country weddings are infused with nature accents, neutral tones and have that cozy feeling of returning home. But, it is not mandatory to be in the middle of nowhere to have a country wedding atmosphere. This charm can easily be replicated no matter where your wedding is taking place. Also, for those couples looking for a classy look, with the right color scheme, a country wedding can be extremely elegant.

The deeper hues, such as eggplant, mauve, and violet will provide a bold effect, underling the contrast with the greens for a flashier effect. Mixed with gold accessories, the darker shades of the purple will give the wedding table a superb effect. Consider also that these country wedding colors are the perfect match for an old countryside castle.  The shades of the purple will work perfectly against the plain greys of the walls’ stones.
