Fewer things are more romantic than a countryside wedding. Sure, beach and city weddings have their allure, but there's something undeniably enchanting about a celebration set among greenery and wildflowers. From vast open fields to starry nights and twinkle lights, there's simply nothing not to love. Whether you're getting married in an open field or inside of a rustic barn, you'll want your wedding dress to match the free-spirited nature of a country landscape. Luckily for you, there are countless country-inspired pieces on the market—from sundresses to elaborate lace gowns—to choose from. Some of our favorite places to shop these looks include BHLDN, Made with Love Bridal, All Who Wander, and of course, Grace Loves Lace. From lace and tulle to feathers and florals, good luck trying to pick just one!

If you're a bride-to-be with a bohemian sensibility, you'll love country-themed wedding dresses featuring layers of cascading lace, delicate flutter sleeves, and off-the-shoulder necklines. Of course, tulle is an effortless way to create an ultra bridal vision that still exudes a soft and laid-back vibe. For the bride whose aesthetic is more minimalist-meets-ethereal, pared-back dresses cut from light-weight fabrics, like cotton and linen, feel carefree. For country nuptials celebrated in spring or fall months, materials like crepe still provide that minimal and effortless feel while being a bit more substantial. To complete any country wedding look, we highly recommend donning accessories that complement the surrounding nature–such as a floral trimmed veil, flower crown, or even a pair of your favorite boots.

What to Look for in a Country Wedding Dress

Whether its a night under the stars, in a barn, or amongst a vast field, a country setting is ideal for effortlessly romantic nuptials. Creating a vision for your country affair will help you in creating a bridal look that aligns with your laid-back aesthetic. One of the first components that may come to mind when deciding upon your style is the fabric. With lace undoubtedly at the forefront, there are certainly more than just a few to choose from. While most bridal gowns are adorned with fine, delicate laces such as chantilly or alençon, opting for a cotton style such as eyelet, guipure, or crocheted lace will allude to a much more organic look and feel. Or, you certainly can't go wrong an allover tulle gown. Effortless and whimsical, soft tulle is ideal for creating a romantic bridal look that offers beautiful movement and texture. Lastly, a material like crepe is perfect for the bride seeking a minimalistic design. With its soft and stretchy feel, there's no question you'll be able to dance the night away in a crepe gown.

But, hear us out—subtle tonal beading that beautifully blends with the gown's details create the perfect opportunity for your gown to reflect upon all the little details. From the twinkle lights to the candles or even the bonfire, imagine how magical it would be to have a little shimmer to bounce off all of that.
