Throughout 2020, people have been using their free time to find their own aesthetic. One aesthetic that has taken over the internet is cottagecore. First, your aesthetic is a central theme that you connect with and love. Cottagecare is a common aesthetic that people “claim”. Cottagecore is described as a beautiful, nostalgic, and calm vibe. It stems from nature, architecture, and keeping life simple. It embraces simple pleasure such as caring for plants, animals, wood, beautiful fields full of flowers, and the sun at dusk falling behind a sky-line of pine trees.

The trend seemed to come to the rise during quarantine while locked in our homes, unable to do much, we started reminiscing on the simple things in life that we took granted. Aesthetics are a great way to escape the real world and transport yourself to who you want to be or where you want to be. Cottagecore embodies that idea completely and has touched the hearts of people all over the world. It has also become the hot summer trend when it comes to planning a wedding. 

To imagine your perfect, cottagecore wedding day, you need to be in touch with what cottagecore truly is. Start imagining an open field with a small cottage, the grass is high in the field with white, yellow and purple flowers. The sun is shining; it’s golden hour. The laundry is drying on a clothesline, you have tea on the stove, and you’re wearing a white, long, sundress. Your shelves are lined with books and records. You’re walking around in the field with your significant other, and life is calm. Life is good. Basically, transport yourself into Pride and Prejudice, Little Women, or Little House on the Prairie but, make it modern. 

Okay, so now you have envisioned what cottagecore is, you can start incorporating common themes into your wedding planning. When it comes to wedding dresses, think of flowy, floral, lace ideas. Sleeves are also a must when it comes to a cottagecore gown.

When you want to channel cottagecore into your ceremony or reception decorations, make sure to focus on exposed wood, green plants and floral. If it’s a night wedding, candles, lanterns or mason jar lights are also a nice touch to add to a centerpiece. Lighting up the venue adds a magical aspect to the celebration. Here are some (extravagant) examples to stir some inspiration:

Cottagecore is a charming and simple aesthetic to add to your wedding day. With all going on in the world, it’s an aesthetically pleasing way to escape. This aesthetic has swept the world with infatuation and interest. It’s the buzz when it comes to design and especially with weddings. Keep it simple, get in touch with nature, and create the cottagecore wedding of your dreams.
