I Do with Cotton!


Who doesn’t love a good Fall wedding? We know we do! One of the biggest trends right now is a rustic or vintage wedding. But how about taking a little bit of a different spin on those and instead of lace and burlap…. Cotton and burlap!

This wedding over at The Budget Savvy Bride did just that! Look at these beautiful natural tablescapes. From the pinecones to the cotton everything about this wedding feels homey, rustic, and natural!

For the color at the reception they used tinted blue mason jars and a wide variety of mismatched plates. Though together these plates looked right at home. Maybe use your old family china to get this look, still different looking but has meaning (We do love a good thrift store to!)

And if cake isn’t your thing then do what this bride and groom did and bake pie! Any kid of pie you can think of… but watch for common allergies that are in your family. These pies look so good I almost forgot it was only a picture.

Forget rose petals while walking down the isle, how about dried leaves! The colors are so rich and you wont have to worry too much about picking them up afterwards (this was an outdoor wedding after all!)

Last but not least! DO NOT forget to thank your guests for celebrating such an important day with you! These cute little favors would be even better wrapped in some of our labels! Consider our food jar label collection and ‘spread some love’.
