English Countryside Meets Boho Grandma: Cottagecore Wedding Ideas

Vintage rustic has gotten a recent bohemian makeover during this pandemic. Fading are the days of mismatched china, macrame, and burlap because herein enters a romanticized vision of simpler times called cottagecore (or countrycore). Soft color palettes, prairie-inspired fashion, rural venues, English countryside architecture, woodland whimsy, and cozy self-sufficient DIY vibes all inspire this new wedding style aesthetic. So if you have made a sourdough starter or currently own a floral print dress with ruffles circa Laura Ashley, then you may very well have already been channeling cottagecore.

In these curated finds from Etsy, you'll see elegant straw hats, dried florals galore, embroidered gifts, and other cottagecore-inspired wedding must haves. As this trend brings rural fantasy into a wedding world that has been devastated by COVID-19, it's easily understood why so many people have escaped into this nostalgic style at home to then dream of bringing it into their special days when larger celebrations can safely happen again.
