Rustic, DIY destination weddings have been all the rage lately with brides aspiring to throw Pinterest-worthy receptions on a chic countryside or in a rustic barn. Maggie Lord, a rustic wedding expert, has created an empire of outlets in which brides can satisfy their needs when it comes to planning the trendy, rustic wedding of their dreams. 

Maggie Lord, a self-proclaimed wedding junkie, lives for the romance and beauty of weddings. She began blogging about her personal experience throwing a rustic, country wedding while she was planning her own at her parents’ summer cabin in Northern Wisconsin. She recognized the need for a blog that could provide brides who were planning a rustic, vintage or country affair with tips and advise throughout the planning process. With her new blog, Maggie wanted to focus on the fact that these types of weddings did not have to sacrifice style or elegance. Her blog, RusticWeddingChic.com, has become the number one online resource for brides planning a rustic or country wedding.

Rustic Wedding Chic is a useful tool for any bride planning a rustic wedding. The most popular feature, “Ask Maggie”, allows brides to ask Maggie specific questions about their wedding planning process, giving them personalized access to her expertise. This blog also has a “How To” feature, ideal for any wannabe DIY bride who may need a little help harnessing their creativity. Maggie also provides articles on etiquette and general advice and she loves to feature dreamy real weddings, guaranteed to inspire all readers.

Rustic Wedding Guide is designed to showcase specific vendors who have a knack for catering to rustic weddings. From venues and decorations to flowers and stationery, Rustic Wedding Guide consists of a large portfolio of contacts that come highly recommended all over the country. Conveniently organized by state, this website will help you find everything you could possibly need at the click of the button. Wherever your destination wedding takes you, Rustic Wedding Guide has you covered.

In conjunction with Maggie’s successful websites, she is the esteemed author of the Rustic Wedding Chic book series. With two books already published and one coming soon, Maggie offers her tips and tricks to planning the ideal rustic wedding. Rustic Wedding Chic, her first book, puts an independent, eco-friendly and creative approach on planning a rustic or country wedding. Her second book, Barn Wedding, includes advice and ideas on how to create a barn wedding and we absolutely cannot wait to see what her third book, Rustic Wedding Handbook, has in store for us.

If a romantic, rustic wedding is your dream way of saying “I do”, Maggie Lord is your go to girl! Start planning by visiting Rustic Wedding Chic or Rustic Wedding Guide or pick up one of her fabulous books today.
