Traditionally, when thinking of weddings most people picture a beautiful church with deep religious values, but as more generations grow older it seems that this traditional format has been lost. As time has gone on these old religious values have seemed to fade away especially when it comes to weddings.
People are becoming more independent as with a rustic or more causal wedding, the couple have a lot more freedom and can make their day exactly how they want, which makes it more special and sentimental. More recent weddings have seen a move from a church setting, to a move to the countryside being embraced, as with a rustic wedding comes more freedom, with the independence to tailor the day round the couple without the traditional, and almost restrictive, church setting.
When having a rustic themed or casual wedding, you are not refined to one place. You can choose from the beautiful countryside this country has to offer, or even any other place that may hold great value for you and you’re partner. It’s not just a church that can hold sentimental value for a couple. This also means you could have more creative photos to look back on over the years, as you’re desired location’s backdrop could hold a million memories when you reminisce on them with your lover in years to come.
On the whole people are no longer following the traditional guidelines and in recent years, weddings have become intensely personal and catered perfectly for the couple. With wedding planers finding it easier than ever to be more creative, in the future traditional church weddings will continue to decrease. As rustic and casual weddings are becoming more mainstream and popularised, this seems the way of the future with more independence on your perfect day.
