It’s time for a new Ask Emmaline question! Lauren asks…
“My fiance is an avid hunter and outdoors man. I’m slightly outdoorsy, but lean towards more colorful, bohemian wedding details. I want our wedding to reflect both of our personalities. We’re going with a rustic wedding and I’ve seen some antler ideas but I have no clue where to start. Do you have any tips?”
Great question! I think you’re already moving swiftly in the right direction: you’ve picked a wedding theme that reflects your personal styles (awesome) AND you’ve already honed in on a focal point (antlers — nice choice). Antlers are a popular style right now in rustic weddings because there are so many artists crafting together some amazing things using the woodsy icon. It’s boho-chic at its finest, and it’s also very masculine and woodsy. What a perfect combination for you two!
To give you a starting point, we’ve rounded up some creative antler wedding ideas. These should be suitable for his outdoorsy tastes and still hold true to your boho-chic style. Enjoy!

Use your icon (antlers) sparingly to keep from overwhelming your space. A few key pieces are al you need to personalize your space.
