You could do burlap runners

as a pp suggested use wheatgrass centerpieces with yellow flowers-you just cut sheets of wheatgrass to fit the trays you are using, then insert flowers that are placed in floral tubes filled with water

-favors could be in mini burlap bags

use a motley collection of framed mirrors on the wall- you can borrow or source at flea markets etc

or drape the walls with burlap

burlap banners

Aww,this could be cute! Cowboy boots for the bridal party? Dried wheat for the centerpieces? Hmm… Gingham? I guess it depends on the feel your going for.

@julieandmattjones: I think if you went with similar shades of green and yellow (for variation) it could be really cute. You can incorporate the logo with a small charm on your garter, or by getting champagne flutes with the logo on them like this: 

Just have fun with it, don’t make it too matchy-matchy, and it could be really awesome! Also, you should probably get a photo taken with an actual tractor. Just sayin’.

…on a hot summer night/ He wrote Billy Bob loves Charlene/ In letters 3 foot high/ And the whole town said that he should have used red/ But it looked good to Charlene/ In John Deere green.

That’s all I have. πŸ™‚  There is already great inspiration here that I love and don’t see how I could add anything better!

Here are ideas I found online that incorporate other aspects of farming: old seed bags, mini hay bales, bunches of wheat. πŸ™‚ I love the ‘John Deere’ Green wine bottles – would make awesome vases with the Yellow Roses!

I actually was going to do the same theme with my now ex fiance. Things didnt work out but I have plenty of things in John Deere colors. Let me know if you may be interested in anything. I have tons of tulle, paper laterns, daisy flowers, satin table runners, bulap, planters (used for center pieces) a john deere garter, daisy flower girl basket and pillow set, john deere napkins and matching plates (they are black and white). Oh and burlap coffee sacks that were going to be used for haybale seating. Just send me a message if you are interested. Thanks πŸ™‚

I am jealous of your theme, We are also farmers and I wanted to do a John Deere theme..but then we decided against it. My son birthday party is JD themed, so I already get to have fun with that LOL….But we are doing a yellow and white themed wedding (so I can still incorporate JD)

Our gettaway “car” will be our planting tractor. To tastefully incorporate colors into the ceremony-You could do yellow and green ties, or maye a yellow tie with the JD sybol on the bottom…so you cant see it under the tux but when they take off their jackets you will see it.

For the centerpieces, if you use ribbion on vases, you could attach a small chrm to the ribbon.

Yellow and green hanging chinese lanterns?

If your having your dance floor outside, you could surrond it with small votives, that have yellow, green and some white candles.

Yellow and green table numbers-Maybe use more of the colors, with the logo here and there so people get the idea.

 

I’m not sure how “country” you want to go but our friends had JD vests made, and after the ceremony the groomsmen wore JD hats that the bride and groom gave them.

Aww, just wanted to say I think that’s a really cute theme πŸ™‚ I went to high school in an Ohio farming community, so I grew up seeing TONS of John Deere stuff. Farming culture is really cool, you can do so many cute things with this theme! I love the ideas PP had of using fruit vs. flowers and using burlap accents.

@Josina:  I really like all of these ideas. A very classic way to do John Deer green without it being too themey.

And now John Deere Green is stuck in my head πŸ™‚

Not sure if you’re a fan of the song but you could do a play on that with your names? Matt loves Julie. Love all the other ideas you’ve come up with.
