I’m getting married October 2012 and i LOVE the rustic theme! If I could have a barn wedding I would, but we’ve already started making payments on our venue. Our wedding ceremony will be outside by a lake and then we will move into a ballroom for the reception. The ballroom is beautiful and I am worried that I will make it look “tacky” if I bring the rustic feel indoors.
I want to incorporate a vintage feel to soften the rustic theme. I’m thinking of including lace and doilies. I think mason jars might make it too casual?
Has anyone else run into this problem?

Do you have any pictures? I do think a ballroom presents a challenge for a rustic feel. I would probably skip the mason jars even though I love them. What if you went for more of a vintage glam feel. There is so much you can do with mercury glass, milk glass, or even non matching tea cups. Do you already have a color scheme? If not one of my favorites for a vintage wedding is gray and yellow.
Best of luck!

Thank you for your help!
I put together an inspiration board. For colors I was originally thinking eggplant and champaign but now I’m leaning more towards plum and peach- kind of like the colors of a fig. A pale peach color sort of gives a vintage/romantic feel.
I was thinking of having my bridesmaids in a plum color and the guys in grey suits/tuxes.
Our venue includes standard white table cloths and I’d like to do some sort of overlay and chair cover but we don’t have a lot of money to spend so I was hoping to do a lot of diy projects.
I know it’s super early to start planning this out but I’d like to get a jump start at fun diy stuff!

We are having a rustic theme indoors, and it is a fear of mine that it won’t really pull together! So far we have mason jars (basically everywhere), burlap table runners, a lemonade stand and a retro style video/photobooth…here’s hoping it comes together, but our hall is anything but “rustic”!

We had a rustic-y feeling wedding indoors. Our colors where eggplant, grey, ivory, and black. We did mason jars on the tables with flowers for the centerpieces, along with tealights. The aisle was lined with (fake) wheat.We tied the bouquets and bouts with gunny sack and stips of bandanas (grey and purple). My girls wore grey dresses and the guys wore black tuxes. Here are some pics for you:

@Rosie Girl: I know this thread is old, but I would LOVE to see more pictures! I’m in the same boat – want a rustic theme, but need to be indoors. Thanks!
