Brie's Rustic Wedding {Burlap & Lace}

***(Update: if you've found this post because of the Thank You card on the table and you'd like to get your free printable file, click HERE! )

I've only been talking about this wedding FOREVER, right?  Well, it finally happened!  This past Saturday was Brie's big day and I must say she was downright beautiful and everything went great! 

We literally DIY'd our happy little selves through this entire thing.  For the past year everyone who knew Brie was saving jars.  Salsa jars.  Spaghetti sauce jars.  Pickle jars.  Baby food jars.  All jars were being saved.  

We made all of her bouquets, corsages and boutineers.  Every table centerpiece and all of the head table decor.  Backdrops, signs and personalized guest book.  Even her garter and head piece were DIY'd.  Like, EVERYTHING!!!

This saved Brie a ton of money, plus we really got to create exactly what she wanted.

WARNING:  If you aren't in the mood to look at a few gazillion pics, you should just close your browser now.  I may or may not have gone a little photo crazy.  
Even if some of them are with my phone because I left my camera at home.
(stupid. stupid. stupid.)


We went simple with the ceremony.  Just some purple pom pom balls and big burlap bows with baby's breath.  


A sweet shot of the beautiful couple right after the wedding.


We used a beautiful ivory lace that had a little stretch to it for her DIY Garter.  We measured her leg and had my grandma sew it together.  We bought some fabric flowers in the scrapbooking department at Hobby Lobby and hot glued them onto the lace.  I just love how beautiful and classy they turned out!




Now for the centerpieces.  We used jars, wine bottles and baby food jars.  All were wrapped with a mixture of burlap, lace and jute.  One jar on each table had an engagement picture printed on vellum mod podged to it.  Then, we lit candles inside making the photo glow.










I created these "thank you" cards  and menu cards using Picmonkey and we printed them on brown kraft paper.

We used more burlap and lace as a backdrop for the head table.  Plus signs with the Bride and Groom names.  








I used some burlap to make a Mr. & Mrs. sign for the head table. 



Brie used all of the engagement photo's that I took and created an awesome personalized guest book online.  She also had wine bottles setup and note cards for people to leave them messages in for them to read on their anniversaries.  


Cue bad iphone photo's here...




















We had so much fun prepping for this wedding and I hope it was all Brie could have ever dreamed of.  She was absolutely stunning!  Tim sure is a lucky guy! ;)

Are any of y'all planning a wedding right now?

Are you DIY'ing it all too?

We'd love to see some photo's!

  2. Brie's wedding turned out beautifully - I just love all of the burlap and lace details and the purple, and the wood slices in the centerpieces are such a nice rustic touch! I recently helped my best friend plan a burlap and mason jar themed wedding with a navy and yellow color scheme and I'm a little obsessed with rustic weddings right now!

  3. Amazing pictures and very beautifully captured I must say. I like the wedding decoration and theme. Everything is just perfect at its place. Choosing a rustic theme for wedding is such a creative and new idea that most of the couples prefer these days for their weddings. This is such a great idea to combine different decoration elements together to get the vintage look for your special day. You can also choose the flowers and other decorative items accordingly. In my wedding, I also chose rustic vintage theme. The wedding area and tables were decorated with rustic colored flowers which were ordered from http://postalflowers.ie/ and a variety of vintage tea cups were hanged over the table. To give a truly old vintage feel, some candles in vintage holders were also placed on table. This rustic theme actually added a glance to the whole wedding decoration.

    1. Hey there! They're all fake flowers from Hobby Lobby! I'm soooooo not a flower expert and I really am not sure what kind they are. I believe they're a form of hydrangea though. That's what I called them at least, LOL!
