we’re doing a rustic indoor adirondack themed wedding reception. I have zero ideas as to how to make the wedding itself go along with this theme at the CHURCH itself…at the reception we are having mason jars as drinking glasses….rustic adirondack decorations along the walls and mantle…but I’d still love other input and ideas!! Does anyone remember anything from a rustic wedding they’ve been to, or maybe you are planning something similiar? I want my wedding reception to be smashing and something worth remembering, something different and unique!
(as centerpieces I am having a cross cut log in the middle with an oil lamp in the center surrounded by little tea lights, greens and mini pine cones…just to give you a feel of what’s already planned..) I would love suggestions!
Thanks in advance, I look forward to what you have to say!
P.S. we do live in the Adirondack park, so this theme does make sense FYI 🙂

@brideonjune13: Hey there! I am sure that you’re married by now so I apologize for getting to you this late but I am intrigued by your wedding. I am newly engaged and we are going to get married in a very small town in the ADKs. We are going to do the ceremony and the reception at a big house that we rented. However, most people who have posted here had their wedding in Lake George or Lake Placid. We need to do things such as rent tents, tables, chairs, etc. and no one has any suggestions. Do you know of any vendors?
Also, congrats on your wedding!

@KVbride: Hi there! I am a wedding coordinator in Lake Placid/Saranac Lake/Tupper Lake area. I just got married myself in June 2010. How are your plans coming along? If you need any help, I would be happy to help you!

I am helping a friend plan an Adirondack summer wedding. We are thinking of grapevine wreaths trimmed with tulle bows, pinecones and artificial wildflowers for decorations. These would work as pew bows in a church wedding. Wildflowers in watering cans, ceramic pitchers, baskets or mason jars would be beautiful. The ring bearer could use a balsam pillow. Wedding favors could be balsam pillows, or evergreen sapplings in terra cotta pots painted white with the bride and grooms name and wedding date painted on. Add stencilled pictures of bear and moose on almost everything. Glue pinecones around the base of candles. You can also fill mason jars with sand and place candles in them. Lanterns can also give that rustic and romantic light. Use small pinecones as placecard holders. Many places in the adirondacks even do a white birch wedding cake with chocolate pinecones. Fill large terra cotta pots with sand and place bare branches in the sand and decorate with white christmas lights, and pincones.
