Ideas for red/turquoise vintage country wedding?

So my mom is planning our reception a week after our wedding, but I need to buckle down and work on my wedding, which is at a rustic country bed/breakfast for 30 people and a sit-down barbecue dinner and mashed potato bar afterward.


 


Obviously, an alice in wonderland theme (which is for the reception my mom's planning) wouldn't work at the wedding itself. Does anyone have any simple, cheap ideas to inject my theme into the wedding?


I'm doing simple vintage pink roses for the bouquets, and my main inspiration is the wedding programs below, but in turquoise and country red. Some polka dot decor could be cute too. I only have two months though, and my budget is pretty low, so diyers, I could use your help here!

I'm thinking of maybe doing paper roses scattered on the tables, since roses seem to be another theme (more than the polka dots and gingham after consulting with fiance). Has anyone done these, like what this blog shows?

Off beat bride had a really great teal and red wedding! Lots of ideas there! I love the metal buckets..You could get the smaller ones and use them to store ceremony site things like programs.Use big and little ones (subliminal way of incoporating the big and small in Alice).. Alice In Wonderland is so magical...So have fun with it! Find yard ornaments of rabbits etc and use them on the tables..Thirfts stores usually have chotchkis and so do dollar stores for yard stuff.. I would use ribbons on everything I can! Red and teal ribbons in your bouquets draping down, I'm using straw for seating..you could do something like that (cheap! Mine are being loaned to me..) and you can drape the staw in those colors with fabric...make hair pieces in the colors.  I Have more but I should check to see if this is the route your taking?? lol (My country wedding is costing a whole $70!! So see my article for details. You could easily switch things around for yours!)
