Boho and Rustic Wedding Cakes are becoming a more popular option for wedding couples as they opt for more of a natural or subtle style of cake. You will find that rustic and boho cakes will often use neutral or warm tones, so they don't overpower the room. With more elegant barn, homestead and outdoor receptions, Rustic Weddings have become an international sensation for the last 5+ years, and are here to stay!

As Rustic & Country Weddings become widespread across Australia, there comes a plethora of amazing wedding cakes to suit too! There is no standard Rustic Wedding Cake, however you will notice subtle textures, natural colours and flowers throughout your inspiration below.

So, let's check out the 21 rustic wedding cake ideas which will complement your dream wedding day.

Having a wedding between April and June? Use warm oranges, yellows and reds, and complement the cake with some rich flowers. Top that off with a metallic gold cake stand to add that extra bit of luxury.

Textured all the way!

Something as subtle as adding a bit more texture, like that unfinished plaster look to a one-tone wedding cake, can be so effective. Especially with the addition of full wedding flowers.

Simple takes the cake!
