Rustic Wedding Inspirations from Etsy


While everyone else is out shopping for Christmas gifts, I've been shopping online at Etsy for our daughter's wedding! Which is in 4 days, but who's counting?
Etsy has been my number one source for special, one of a kind, rustic decorations, like this moss covered ring pillow. If the bride and groom were actually exchanging rings instead of getting matching tattoos, I would definitely buy this from BraggingBags!

I did, however buy 100 of these little wooden tags to tie onto the canning jars from NHWoodscreations.

Even the invitations came from Etsy. Brian at MyBigDayDesigns worked with me to custom design an invitation similar to the one above.

We aren't having a sit down dinner, so there is no need for numbered tables, but I would have bought these clever burlap numbers if we were! From SophiasSignBoutique!

For chilling the champagne, this burlap covered bucket is fabulous!

I ended up with two sources for the log slices. One of them was Rustic Woodworking, and the other was from Etsy shop, DreamWithPassion. These will be placed under the centerpieces and can be re-used as rustic chargers later.

I just love this rustic cake stand from RoxyHeartVintage!

I thought this was a great idea for party favors, but we are giving our Arabian Family olive oil instead. Still, this would be perfect for "spreading the love!" From DaSweetZpot.

I love the idea of a wedding banner, but I know there is no way I would get Ashley and her fiance to pose like this! Plus, I could make it in my spare time!

Spare time? What spare time?
Actually, I'm "enjoying the process" as Kathysue from Good Life of Design always says.
It's her motto, and I'm sticking with it.
Also, "keep calm and carry on" works too!

Pin It!

A Christams wedding....I was married on Dec. 20th 19 years ago. Your decorations and ideas are lovely. There are so many more choices than when I got married. We had our reception in an antebellum home that was decorated for Christmas. We used light pink poinsettas, too. I made my wedding cake and the groom's cake, too. I wish I was there to help you!

Seeing the first image just reminded me of a Christmas gift I gave a friend and I wrapped a whole box in moss and tied with rafia and added twigs and shells, this had to be 15years ago, she saved it and displayed it in her rustic style home. Love all of your rustic pieces and I am so glad you are Enjoying the Process, Thanks for the mention, sweet friend. Know that I am thinking about you and Ashley this week,

Delores,
Love all the wood and burlap...so much so that I was not surprised to see posted here. As for the last photo....just ask. If only to say "This will be for me, not you." I'm hoping they will!
All the best to the bride and her groom....may she be his bride everyday!
