If you want to envelop your guests in rustic chic, a country cotillion is the way to go.

What venue suits a heartfelt wedding? A setting straight from the heartland, where waves of grain beckon, apple orchards offer up their bounty, and weathered wood speaks of comforting shelter. A barn calls out for embellishments; a rustic wreath and muslin drapes at the doorway add the appropriate flourishes. For the country equivalent of a plush red carpet, lay down a generous path of straw.

Wreath and wheat stalks around torchères, Table Art; Muslin curtains, Rosebrand.
