And there’s good reason! There’s something raw and authentic about honest ingredients in their original form.

And sometimes the most simple touches end up feeling the most elegant – even effortlessly sophisticated. Mixbook offers a great assortment of rustic chic wedding invitations, plus a gorgeous wedding photo book and a guest book to match. Here are our favorites…
The Best Rustic Wedding Invitations
If a beautiful barn or a rustic small-town chapel is the backdrop to your idyllic country-chic wedding, go with an invitation that evokes a rustic setting. The Rustic Heart wedding invitation has a printed faux bois that conjures up the strength and character of an old-growth barn beam. It’s a simple reference, but you’d be surprised at how powerful an impression it makes! Or go country-western with an old-timey broadside featuring a wild west–style font. Friends and family with instinctively know to wear their cowboy boots – or at least to skip the stilettos.
Mixbook’s Rustic Forest wedding invitation is ideal if you’re hosting a ceremony in the mountains. With an aesthetic that’s reminiscent of classic Alice Waters’ Chez Panisse menus, you can’t go wrong with a bucolic woodcut print paired with thoughtful typography. Guests will revel in the crisp and clean aesthetic to complement the fresh air, good friends and palpable love of the occasion.
If you’re hosting a wedding ceremony at the height of summer and plan to showcase a seasonal fruit in its full glory, there’s simply no better wedding invitation than Mixbook’s Summer Fruit series. Choose from cherry, pear, apple, strawberry or pineapple. Each fruit is hand drawn exclusively for Mixbook, for a completely unique custom look. If you’re throwing a Michigan wedding with cherries in the limelight, you’ve found your ideal stationery. Or if you’re hosting a classic Southern wedding and wish to feature the icon of Southern hospitality, the pineapple is perfect. And if you and your spouse-to-be are particularly fruity, you can also get creative and use stickers to match up more than one fruit to represent the two of you.
Mixbook’s Burlap and Lace invitation is the sweetest pairing of crafty with classy. A layer of handmade lace is set off with a backdrop of homespun paper for a perfectly balanced contradiction that everyone loves. Carry the theme through to your wedding ceremony itself by pairing couture with crafty at your every whim. Similarly, Mixbook’s Rustic Branches wedding invitation pairs crisp cutouts forming elegant branches with a taupe backdrop for a clean aesthetic that’s both rustic and elegant.
