These:

Take larger mason jars and buy led lights and hang them from fishing wire. You get pretty “firefly” laterns!

How about using burlap?  I am planning on using burlap under my tables (with log rounds, blue mason jars and a small bud vase.  Most of this stuff was very cheap for me to put together (20 yards of burlap= $40 after coupon at JoAnnnes, bud vases= about $.50 or less at thrift stores) You can also use the burlap or some tule under the arch, with some tissue poms or flowers.

Burlap is awesome for a country wedding!  You can do table runners or center mats. Tie large Burlap Bows as aisle decor, or burlap wrapped flower bunches.  You can drape an arbour with Burlap also, or use bunches of lavender/baby’s breath hanging on it, alos use the same idea for aisle decor.

Metal buckets/tubs full of baby’s breath/dried lavendar for the aisle or at the bse of the arbour, also fill them with ice and use them as coolers for water, lemondae, iced tea, bottled water etc.

Raffia tied around the napkin/cutlery is cute, or checked cloth (like the red/white check gingham style)

Mason jars in any fashion for a country wedding is a must, use the smaller ones for candle holders, or small flower vases, or cold beverages. 

A centerpiece doesn’t have to be complicated, a brulap runner, a mason jar of wildflowers, some ribbon/lace a candle or few and you’re good to go!

Hi-  Goodwill is your friend!!!  I’ve found vases and all sorts of things there.  Also, purchased striped straws for a vintage country look- they’d look so pretty with mason jar drinking glasses.  I am doing our wedding on the cheap and it certainly won’t look it.  You can buy frames from Goodwill and just design text for them in Publisher or any word program.  Good luck, don’t stress and have fun with it!  Our wedding is small for a reason so we can enjoy the little moments.  Smaller weddings are less expensive so you might want to consider that route!

I feel like I’m taking crazy pills. Is August seriously four months away in the August Wedding timewarp?

I am getting married on July 21st so i am on total freak out too, but i found great ideas for center pieces and decor.

i am doing a lot of DIY, my church has some greenery already, may borrow some from florist. Also Michaels or hobby lobby for some fake flowers for some of center pieces. i am using lots of mason jars( i hit mason jar heaven in my mothers basement!) ill use some vases for flowers on food tables, i am doing the picture idea, for a different picture on each table of us. and floating candles. Buying older picture frames from thrift stores and painting them, for the Initial and some for the idea of not choosing sides when seating during ceremony. Making my own card box.

hope that helps a little 🙂

We bought a ton of old bud vases from a thrift store and spray painted them.  They turned out way better than I had even hoped!  BTW these are not mine, but ours look exactly the same.  All for the cost of spray paint and some 69 cent vases!
