An understated gown, like this one by Ann Taylor, is key for a rustic wedding. Think streamlined silhouettes (no ballgowns, please) and simple ornamentation (hold the bling). The raw-edged tulle on this flutter skirt gives the dress personality and dimension while still feeling causal enough for a countryside wedding, like Alison and Matthew's wedding on a family farm in Scottsville, Virginia. For your bouquet, pick wildflowers that complement the colors in your natural surroundings—think blush tones in a garden or jewel tones in a vineyard.
