How to Create the Rustic Look… on a Cabo Beach

As the Cabo floral experts, it’s easy to tap into trends.  We often hear the same words or descriptions from many different clients.  That’s how we know what’s truly popular with our brides and grooms.  The one word we keep hearing right now?  RUSTIC.

And we love rustic!  Now, of course, creating a rustic event on a beach in Mexico is a little bit different than having a rustic event in a barn, or on a farm, or in a meadow, or at a vineyard…wedding options that you may have in the U.S.

For us, most of our rustic weddings happen on a Cabo beach!  And we love that!  (Of course, we do create floral designs for weddings at Flora Farms, too, in neighboring San Jose del Cabo, which is a working farm.  But most of our weddings are on or adjacent to the beach.)

Keeping your floral decor rustic is all about keeping your Cabo wedding look simple and natural with clean lines, while at the same time keeping it elegant.

So how do you do that?

  1. Incorporate a lot of white flowers into your floral design.  Baby’s breath is popular again as well in rustic weddings too.  (Line your ceremony aisle with bunches of it, for a beautiful and rustic look.)
  2. Use natural wood for many of your floral decor options.  We recommend drift wood or curly willow.  Create a chuppah with this natural wood, or let us design for you a table centerpiece made with some of our own Cabo beach driftwood with a candles incorporated into the wood.
  3. Use succulents and more wild flowers, than traditional flowers.
  4. Vintage metals look amazing with all of the above options.  Set these directly on the beach to line your aisle way and include them in your table design as well.
