Since we are getting married outside, and having the reception in a barn, I am thinking of going for a RUSTIC CHIC look. This is a surprise to me because I am in the interior design field and I love all things modern and contemporary, but after looking at all of my inspiration pics together, it just fit!
I love peonies, ranunculus and garden roses. These will all be in my bouquet in different shades of PINK
I love the first and second inspiration, especially the anemones & queen anne's lace
< love the idea of doing a submerged centerpiece
Mock-Up. Debating about putting a submerged flower in the mason jar or river rocks or something else?
After touring a few venues in the area, we decided to have our wedding & reception at the same venue, The Willow Tree Inn. UPDATE: since our original Venue closed before we put our deposit down we had to find a new place. We are now having both the ceremony and reception at Polen Farms. It is similar to the Willow Tree because it has a barn as the reception venue.
so I am going to have a problem deciding which shoes I want to wear the day of. I've found like 4 pairs I love, but I am definitatly going to wear pink!
I decided I wanted to wear only some dangly earrings and a bracelet, no necklace. I'm also going to wear my hair on the side so a flower hair accessory will look great I think! Here's things I've found so far, mostly on Etsy.
I think this bracelet goes with my dress perfect!
*VEIL & HAIR*
< (from cayann32) I love the long single tier
I love my ring so much! We picked it out together and both knew it was the one. It is part of Verragio Classic collection. It's so sparkly!!!
I've compiled a list and some inspiration pictures of pictures I would love to have of my wedding!
Love this! from my photographer Jenny Haas
PROJECTS I'M PLANNING ON DOING:
tissue paper pomaders-for centerpieces, aisle pews, reception decor
wood sign (Megan & Daniel, June 2 2012, Wedding, Reception, Ceremony) *This is FI's project!" :)
centerpieces (wrap mason jars with burlap & ribbon/twine)
frames for table numbers
wooden tree swing (for picture purposes) *this is FI's project!*
wagon wheel w/ streamers & ribbons *see inspiration photo*
"Her Mr." & "His Mrs." signs for chairs at sweetheart table
paper labels for desert tables, drinks, food, etc.
ruffled burlap table runners
I Spy wedding game
Photo sharing cards
Will you be my bridesmaid?
tissue pomanders will line the benchs along the aisle and also decorate the gazebo. They will be in ivory and different shades of pink
guest tables will have white polyester linens with burlap runners
My grandma will be making the table runners
Flowers will be scattered on all the tables (bridal party table, cake/dessert table, guest book/cards, bar, etc.) in various "vases" like barnwood planters, galvanized buckets, and mason jars
Other things include:
mason jars with candles
globe string lights
the girls will be able to choose their own style in a chiffon, knee length dress
I love this dress! It's made my "Classy Sassy Girls" on Etsy. My flower girl will wear this in either ivory or navy. Possibly with a sash and matching flower headband
for an outdoor ceremony and reception in a rustic barn; I thought tan suits would be more appropriate and less formal looking. Plus I think it will look great with the pink bridesmaid dresses!
Still undecided on ties-matching pink or mismatched pink to coordinate with each bridesmaid?
love the bouttouniere too!
I love little men in bow ties! I think it will be so cute.
Here is one I found:
Save The Date
these are our auctual cards
with the rustic theme I want to incorporate: brown kraft paper, lace, & of course mason jars!
in keeping with the rustic & casual theme we are having good down home ol' fashioned food. A catered buffet including:
- Fried Chicken
- Pulled Pork w/ assorted BBQ sauces
- Herbed Green Beans
- Homemade Mac & Cheese
- Mashed Potato Bar
we will do cupcakes instead of the traditional cake; however still have a small cake for us to cut into! Something like the below pictures but only 1 tier.
Will also do a "dessert bar" with cake pops, and assorted candies. yummmy!!
we will be having an open bar with assorted beers, liquors, and wine. We can bring in our own alcohol
