Pennsylvania Gray And Yellow Rustic Wedding

Emily and Stephen threw a rustic wedding celebration that was big on DIY details. From the homemade alter decor to the bride’s rose and succulent bouquet, (which she made herself) to the little vignettes set at each reception table. The entire day was overflowing with handmade details.

You can see more of this gray and yellow rustic wedding in the full gallery, all captured by Pennsylvania wedding photographer Jamie D Photography. Be sure to read on to hear about their budget breakdown. It’s really great to hear about how much everything costs, event when most of the wedding is handmade.

on the ceremony decor
For the ceremony, we hung window panes and tulle between all of the posts to give it a more intimate feel. We also hung fabric in the back that came down to the top of barn shutters to enhance the more intimate feel.

At the front of the tabernacle we placed 3 old doors with old fences on either side and fabric draped to draw all of the elements together. My bridesmaids sat in old antique chairs for the ceremony. My dad, gave me away and married us so that was something very special.

A staircase was set up with mason jars that had yellow striped straws and a vintage-like label wrapped around them. Each label had the guest’s name on it and their table number.

Antique plates and napkins that were handmade by friends and family set the tone for this rustic inspired table decor.

Arrangements of bright dahlias, sunflowers, wild flowers, and lavender were housed in burlap wrapped mason jars. Each arrangement was set perfectly on tree slices, that were covered in vintage dollies.

Coffee lover’s wedding favors-
Stephen and Emily gave each guest a burlap bag of authentic Honduran coffee wrapped with lace trim. The labels were wrapped around the bag with twine, and if you notice they used the same labels for the favors and the escort cards. Buying in bulk not only keeps a consistent look and feel throughout, but also saves on cost.

Emily on her budget break down
Okay, here is the basic breakdown of our expenses . . . to be honest we really shopped around, used coupons and waited for sales! We bought a lot of stuff from Goodwill, yard sales, Craigs list and online! My wedding dress was the most expensive item that we purchased and I actually cried when we bought it because I felt terrible for spending that much, But it was beautiful and I wouldn't change a thing.
Throughout the whole wedding planning process, my parents were without jobs, my fiance (now husband was teaching at a school in Honduras where his salary was minimal, and I was working with a ministry living on people's support. So all that to say, that I am a firm believer that if you have a vision for your wedding, and the price seems unbearable, it can happen. So many people pitched in to help and support us and our day was amazing, we loved it all and honestly wish we could go back and enjoy it all over again.

    Everything wrote was actually very reasonable. But,
    consider this, what if you added a little content?
    I am not saying your content is not solid., however suppose you added a title that grabbed
    a person’s attention? I mean Gray And Yellow Rustic Wedding is kinda vanilla.
    You might look at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they write post headlines to grab people interested.
    You might add a video or a related picture or two to grab people interested about what you’ve got to say.

    In my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.
