hey Date Twin!!!

Mine is going to be rustic/outdoorsy. My vases for centrepieces. Going to be filled with fresh flowers. They are all now the same height and have a strip of royal purple ribbon around the centre of the vase. The smaller one in the front will be used for the bridesmaid bouquets at the head table.

These are my large vases for the ceremony. They are going to be flanking the aisle. Also wrapped in a thicker purple ribbon. They are going to be filled with birch bark trees that I have glued purple flowers onto.

This was a trial run, but I will be putting more purple flowers on. Sorry for the bad picture.

I have some other rustic stuff, like my signs for my candy buffet and guestbook and favors made out of barn board. Our bouquets are also going to be wrapped in birch bark.

Ooh, I  absolutely love all of your ideas. 

MrsChubbyBunny – where have you been finding all of your milk glass.  I’ve been looking and only been able to find 2 ๐Ÿ™

Mrs.tobe – I’m loving your bouquet wrap and the burlap banners.  ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Irishb & bas0587 – once he goes to try them on I’m hoping he’ll like either gray or tan. ๐Ÿ™‚  If not I have 11 months to convince him.  lol

So far the only items I’ve purchased are 1) the location where we are getting married (lol) 2) Two glass beverage dispensers (to serve sweet tea & lemonade in) 3) cake stands (light pink) 4) nine blue mason jars 5) wired mason jars to hang in the gazebo and on the ceremony chairs for the aisle. 6)  2 milk glass vases  ***hardest part is trying to budget everything since my fiance and I are paying for everything ourselves and trying to stick as close as possible to $5k budget so we can buy a house next year.

 

 

I am thinking about just buying cheap white bud vases at the 99c store and spraypainting them white (a la martha stewarts blog) & ditching the aqua vases.  They don’t go with anything I want to do now.

So far these are my ideas?

 Cake – but not this color (leading more torwards a champagne color)

 Bouquet with a burlap wrap instead (maybe a little more of a champagne color flower insead of the lighter flower) and no cymbidium orchids

  This boutienere with burlap or twine wrap and more of a champagne colored flower

   I want to DIY this and a photo booth (photo booth idea won’t post for some reason :()
  Tables (this flower color is a little more along the lines of what I’m wanting ***And I forgot I already bought the scrabble tiles too.  lol

  Invitation – but again change of color – maybe tan writing???

What do you think?  Do you agree, no on the aqua vases?  Should I switch any of the colors?

@NeonBride: I wouldn’t toss the 9 mason jars you’ve already began to collect. You have plenty of time to collect more. How many guests/tables are you expecting to have? I got very lucky collecting my mason jars. There’s a little couple down the street from my house who run their antique business on their property. They have tons, and I mean TONS of perfect mason jars for $1 a piece!!!!! I bought a bunch of them to set on my tables and the mantle of the historic home we’re getting married at. As far as the smaller mason jars to hang outside (I’m doing the same thing, although we’re hanging them from the tree near our reception area) I bought 12 for $7.25 at Big Lots. They’re not the Kerr jars, but no one will notice, they’ll be in trees!!!

Like I said, you have plenty of time to keep collecting your mason jars. Just hit up any antique store you see. Check out your local area Craigslist or Ebay also. Mason jars just add a lil something extra that can’t be replaced, in my opinion! Good luck!

These are my ideas so far for our rustic wedding..Although I am not sure it’s really rustic theme..maybe more earthy and simple than anything. We are from Canada, and we are getting married in Joshua Tree/Palm Springs. I am also going to have cactus candles at each place setting.

Centerpieces-aand the banner/wishflag we will use instead of a guestbook which our friends and famly can sign

and the twigtree with paper flowers (flowers will be in our colors which so far are white,apple green and stone gray)

These will be our favors to our guest. I am trying to decide on what shape though. They will also have a seed paper tag for the little thank you card.

What do you all think?

Love all the rustic pics you ladies have posted. I especially love the mason jar ideas and the wood elements. We just got married at a zoo and our reception was in an old building with stone and brick that houses their amphibian and insect exhibits. I wanted kind of a rustic modern look with bird elements. I like color, so I tried to incorporate bright colors with some rustic touches here and there like branching and the bird theme of course. Florist strung lights with grapevine entwined on the balcony above reception space.

My husband cut down a dead tree in our back yard and made wood slices to put lanterns on for 1 of 2 different kinds of centerpieces. Florist used moss and branch elements with flower heads tucked here and there. Husband also cut a small branch and made votive candle slices to put the candles on. My bouquet had a twine wrap, bee pins in some of the flowers and a branch “y” brooch on the wrap. Bridesmaid had branching and so did boutonnieres and twine wrapping. Husband’s had a little initial heart in his, too! My husband wood burned our monogram on birch for the guest book. Here are some pics:

Hey ya’ll…. this is a great thread with some great pics! I am in the beginning stages of planning a Oct 2012 wedding with some “rustic” elements. We’re getting married in the N. GA mountains during the local apple festival- so that is our theme. All I’ve really done so far is start an inspiration board. I filled in some of the gaps with pictures from the actual venue (chapel, canoe, stone structure). Any feed back/suggestions is appreciated!

@msvanoO: I’d love to see your inspiration board. You could always post pics in stages. I love your theme of apples (there are clearance ”fake” apples on Pier 1 right now)! Your venue is AMAZING!! Looks like you’ve done your research; you’re on the right track!
