Ten Inexpensive Rustic Wedding Ideas

Rustic weddings are my specialty which is funny, because I am a city girl. I was born and raised in Washington, D.C. and I loved it. I have lived in Maine for fifteen years, and I guess I have picked up a thing or two because I now love rustic decor, especially for weddings.

I am as many of you know doing a wedding on July 18th and it is a barn wedding. Here are some inexpensive rustic wedding ideas from different weddings I have done.

1. Pitchers filled with grasses and wild flowers. Go to yard sales and flea markets to collect pitchers.

2. Herbs wrapped in burlap in glass cubes.

6. I love plants at a wedding they can fill blank spaces up with color and volume for very little money!

7. Lanterns do not need to be nautical they can be rustic.

8. I think these roots are so cool filled with succulents and moss, perfect on cocktail tables.

9. Orchids add color without a lot of cost! I got all of these plants at Trader Joe’s…so great and this tablescape cost about $25.

There is a lot you can do to keep your wedding decor costs under control. Everyone has a budget, if you plan you can have a beautiful wedding on a budget. Use plants, candles and farm fresh flowers in simple mason jars.
