My wedding will hopefully be at my family’s farm that was sold to the county and turned into a working agricultural farm park. It has alot of sentimental value to me, and hopefully I can get a discount (my grandmother is going to try to work this out) for being a family member of the original owners. Anyway the ceremony will take place on the lawn and then the reception in the large barn. I am having black, white, with splashes of blush pink and gold (at least that is my idea for now). I plan on doing stringed lights from the rafters and mason jars full of candles. I am also playing around with the idea of having jars filled with pictures and items from our childhood. Lots of rustic things, like signs and stuff. Still working it all out in my head, and I don’t want to over do the already overdone mason jar thing.

We’re getting married in converted barns. Planning colour scheme to be tiffany blue and red. Going to get some tea light candles to put on the tables in the lounge area. There’s a small corridor from this area to the dance area and going to put some frosted glass candles along the shelf. Flowers for the centrepiece will be red gerberas and favour boxes will be tiffany blue with a red ribbon.

We are getting married at an orchard/farm. Next door used to be a country club that was bought out by the farm and the golf course was let go into a nature preserve. They kept the original club house and now use it for events! ITS GREAT!

Our colors are chocolate brown, Chartruese, and aqua.

Im totally lost with decor! BUT I plan on using paper lanterns in an area of the reception that has a vaulted ceiling…. im also hoping to use alot of lace, damask and burlap. I also have purchased blue ball mason jars for half the venterpieces… the other half are going to be crates with apples from the orchard inside! …. and thats about as far as ive gotten!

We are having a July wedding at a pumpkin farm, they run curriculum based trips through the Fall months and transferred an old  barn onto the property to run classes in -so no fall theme for us, but we will be running with purple, white and silver for colours (I was originally thinking purple, white, beige).

Keeping it clean and crisp, the barn (reception in there, ceremony in a open grassy area, with trees surrounding it) doesn’t need any decor with the natural awesomeness (haha, biased?) so we don’t have to do much in terms of decor, but we likely will!

Here are some pics of our venue:

 We had what I called “Tiffanys goes country” wedding. My colors were Tiffany Blue, Brown and White. I used Gerber daisies for all of my flowers and had our reception in a Big Log Cabin out in the woods on Lake Michigan. It turned out beautiful even though we totally winged it! The log cabin in the woods really made the “country” feel. It was a really big rustic wooden room with a catherdral ceiling and two huge stone fireplaces at each end of the cabin. All of our guests sat at tables and bench type chairs made out of logs. The cabin had almost no electricity hook ups or air or heat (so thank God it was a nice comfortable May day!!) so I lit the enitre place up with candles and white lights. On each table along with the candles was a small vase with a single flower in each one. I also did laterns placed around the cabin and outside going up the walkway.

 It took ALOT of creativity and DIY projects but it was SO romantic and had a classy southern charm feel. You would think that country weddings would be simple but they really arn’t. Still though, Its TOTALLY worth it!!!! Good luck with your wedding! I’m sure it will turn out beautiful!!!!

We had what I called a “country Italian wedding” in Austin, TX.

When I think country weddings I think trees, lights, rustic kind of feel.

We kept our decor simple b/c I wanted the trees & grass to be the “decor” so we kept it white, crisp and clean. With white lights wraped around trees and white paper lanterns.

And of course, I rocked cowboy boots 🙂
