Hey yall! I was wondering if any of you think it’s weird to have vintage/shabby-chic decor in a country club setting. I’m gathering ideas, and I find myself really drawn to the vintage style decor with mason jars, lace, twine, milk glass, etc. However, I will most likely be using a country club set on a lake for my venue, so do you think this clashes? If so- any suggestions on decor that will still give that romantic feeling with a little more polish?

You can certainly do that. Even in vintage times, there were country clubs.
Here is a wedding that is vintage but less rustic:

We are. I originally wanted to get married outside and have an indoor barn reception. Fiance is a NEAT freak and wanted nothing to do with it.
Our wedding is booked for a country club – we’ll marry on the covered patio overlooking the green and then the reception will follow indoors. We’re doing vintage-looking flowers (garden roses for the bouquets and dahlias in vintage glass bottles on the tables). Our florist is going to build an arbor and decorate it with these pomanders I made.
I have all sorts of signage and wood items that will also go on the tables, along with some vintage books.
I made button boutonnieres in lieu of flowers for the guys:
And we’ll have this banner hanging from one of the tables.
Our venue is very modern but I think with the right decorations, it will all come together and look vintage (I hope)!

So cute!! I really want a barn reception too, but my parents aren’t too thrilled with the idea. And it’s kind of out of the way for a lot of guests. I really like your ideas, and I am thinking I might do sort of the same thing- use very vintage looking flowers, frames, and vintage books but nothing too hokey!

Such great ideas! I really wanted a rustic barn or vineyard wedding, but so far country clubs are floating to the top of our list because of price and location. Thanks for the great tips on how to make them look a little less stuffy!
