Anyone have any ideas for burlap? These are mine so far.
Ring pillow, table runners, around candles, signs made out of burlap strung together, aisle runner, wrapped around flowers, part of the corsages and boutineers, flower girl basket.
Also, we are getting married in a barn. The owners of the barn do not have any tableware. I don’t really want to rent plates and glasses and silverware so where could get some nice tableware cheap? any ideas?
And my fiance wants to make our own food for the wedding, he is going to do a pig roast. Any ideas of food we could do ourselves that we couldn’t neccesarily mess up? cocktail hour and dinner. We are buying our own alcohol too, what should we buy?
Btw, this is for 250 people.
Thanks in advance!

What is your reason for not wanting to rent? It is so much easier. You don’t even have to wash the dishes. You just put them back in the rack and the company picks them up.
If you purchase your own dishes, you will have to arrange for someone to take on this responsibility .

Sounds like you’ve covered a lot but I wanted to share this tutorial in case you’ve not worked with burlap before:
The fabric lady at Jo Anns recommended I look it up before I started cutting, it saved a lot of headaches and crossed-eyes!

I’m thinking of encorporating burlap in my invitations and as a background to a DIY photobooth. Hopefully that’ll work.

we are using burlap as well
burlap invitations we are making ourselves
we have the burlap banners
we are using burlap for our cardbox
and burlap table runners
That’s all…. we don’t want to go too overboard with the burlap. our theme is rustic/vintage, so the rest of the decor will be more vintage then burlap… we are using lace as well as part of the vintage look
