@halicolandrea:What colors are you doing?  Do you want to do burlap? and/or Dollartree crocheted doilies?  Or maybe some calico print or gingham check fabric in your color?  What about tin garden water pitchers with Sunflowers or Dahlias?  Add some raffia?  And some globe lights along with your paper lanterns?Do you have any inspiration pics?

Do you have access to firewood, tree prunings, old  barnboard etc. If you can get these types of things free you can stretch your decorating dollar.

Will you be using round or long tables?  Long tables are perfect for tablescaping- stretching the centerpiece down the length of the table. Use mason jars filled with casual flower arrangements that look like they were just picked from the garden, add votive candles, pieces of vintage china, silver serving pieces,decorative statues etc.

This pic is from bakerella’s wedding. She said they also used silver cream and sugars filled with babies breath.

Burlap runners also give a rustic/vintage look. You can use them atop white linens,

or place them right on the wood table-use plain or colored burlap

adding a sprig of rosemary or lavender adds a nice touch and neither of them wilt easily

you can add doilies which can likely be borrowed or collected from thrift shops


they are easy to make – there are tutorials here on WeddingBee and on other sites

You could also use slices of firewood under candles for inexpensive centerpieces

sunflowers should be ready for your August wedding

they are high impact flowers- just a few makes a large presence

they can do double duty as aisle decor at the ceremony and then move them to the reception for centerpieces

you can make cute placecard holders from branches

if you have the time and inclination you could collect mismatched china- it gives a beautiful look

you could also make your own napkins from pretty floral prints as in the pic above

cafe lights can be strung from the rafters-with or without paper lanterns

or you could hang umbrellas upside down from the celing

These are just a few ideas not knowing much about you or your colors scheme, theme etc.

Let me know if you want any other suggestions.

Something across the ceiling/top of the room – I think cafe/globe lights would definitely lend that rustic-yet-glam feel! I’ve seen several listings for them over in the classifieds lately.

Hang up the paper lanterns, too, and that will really help to define the space.

like PP said, DollarTree has some doilies and TONS of other wedding things for $1each (I think the 8″ candles-in-a-jar would be darling with one in each window!) – all free shipping from the website to your nearest store.

Doing long tables can minimize your centerpiece needs, and also fits perfectly with the romantic rustic idea.

What about something between the windows? Like ribbon or something? to tie them together? 

Or what about bringing your colors in somehow? Or I saw this really cute ribbon wall (can’t find the link). 

or, if I am hoping, to draw attention away from the walls by using better centerpieces.

Since you did not mention what your theme is……….if you are going to have dim lighting……balloon arches or bouquets against the walls might provide some color………..
For an old fashioned  feel for your wedding go with black, white and cream decorations……………

As a centerpiece……. try adding a low vase with red flowers to add a little bit of color……….
Try to get a live band that plays Glenn Miller or other Big Band music……… An old fashioned  wedding looks classic and elegant………..and adding tea lights to tables sets a romantic mood and provides sufficient lights for guests at dinner………

I think that you could just google barn wedding pictures and get some great ideas from there…   I really like the idea of wheat, it gives a rustic feel
