Here at The Wedding Chicks, one of the quickest ways to snag our attention is send us something pretty. So...when we saw these Rustic Wedding Ideas that are budget friendly we had to share. Jeff Sampson captured all this prettiness and Valerie Sampson designed the table top which could easily be replicated and transported to a local wedding venue near you. Or it would be pretty cool to have your reception out in a field amongst nature. Although it might be a good idea to pass out bug spray as a wedding favor.

The table design is not only rustic, fall, and vintage but budget friendly. Burlap and ribbon were used as a table runner atop a white tablecloth. Both burlap and ribbon can be found super cheap at crafts stores like Michael’s or Walmart. We incorporated cheap antique finds such as: old vintage books on each end of the table to add height, the glass candle holders, the wooden box that we filled with old eclectic bottles, and large blue mason jars to hold the flower bouquets. These items seem to be staples at any local antique shop. The table # frame was an inexpensive frame with leftover burlap and numbers cut out of scrapbook paper. We used cinnamon smelling pinecones as place card holders. The menu’s on each place setting are made from small kraft bags. The kraft bags and the paper doily’s are both found at craft stores in bulk for only a few dollars. Very simple elements with a natural feel. We mainly relied on the pop of color from the flower bouquets and the choice of ribbon to add color to the tables.
The flower used to create a soft fall inspired bouquet are:
Pink Dahlia, Echinacea, White Anemone, Pink Ranunculus, Yellow Ranunculus, White Hydrangea and. Lambs Ear. To see more bouquet recipes click here.
