|Rustic Wedding Inspiration- DIY|
It's important to have a clear vision for your wedding day to help build a cohesive look from start to finish. Before designing save the dates and invitations, I always ask brides to describe the look and feel of their wedding. This typically includes color palettes, wedding dress, venue, time of year etc. Today I decided to get my inner "Style Me Pretty" on and made a collage of some of the inspiration I used for our wedding.
1. Birdcage veils are the perfect, understated, yet feminine accessory for those who don’t want the traditional long veil. I purchased mine through Etsy.
2. Perhaps my favorite decoration and DIY project: string chandeliers were hung in the ceremony and reception locations. You can keep them white or spray paint them in the color of your choice.
3. 3-teired tree dessert stand- try saying that 5 times fast! If you have a handy family member and access to some tree trunks, this is a unique way to serve cupcakes (or whoopie pies in my case).
4. Vera Wang peep toe flats are great for brides worried about the combination of heels and grass or are looking for comfort AND style throughout the night.
5. "Tree cookie” centerpiece stands help to add a rustic look to each table.
6. Use tinted jars to add pops of color throughout the reception setting.
7. Did you spot the pine cone detail in the boutonniere? It's a wonderful wonderful way to add a rugged touch to the groom’s accessory. Having beach-side nuptials? Try adding sea-grass as a backing to the flowers.
8. Farmers tables are the epitome of rustic and add additional color and texture to the reception decor.
9. Wedding invitations: a mixture of lace and paper bag envelopes helped to incorporate the lace detail on the wedding dress and tied in the rustic/diy feel of the day.
