Elizabeth’s Yellow & Cream Rustic Wedding Inspiration Board

Elizabeth writes: We’re having a canary yellow and ivory wedding reception with a rustic theme. (The reception will take place in a barn.) I need ideas for the bridal bouquet, the bridesmaids’ bouquets, centerpieces, and decorations. I really want to decorate with a lot of wood and burlap and candlelight….and lots and LOTS of flowers! I want to put flowers in things like mason jars and watering pails. I want flowers on my cake! I might want flowers to decorate the chair backs. I’m feeling most inspired by wildflowers. I love sage-colored greenery, herbs, and seeded eucalyptus! I love the way hydrangeas look, and I also like sweet peas. I’m not opposed to roses, but I’m really feeling wildflowers. Thank you, thank you, thank you for any help you can offer!With so many great ideas given by Elizabeth it was easy to see her vision and help her find the right flowers and accessories. I totally agree that you can’t go wrong with Hydrangeas. I love this idea of using the mason jars with the hydrangeas. I found that great idea on www.weddingbee.com. Beautiful, yet simple. Staying with the rustic theme, Baby’s Breath bouquets for the bridesmaids are unique. That idea came from another blog at www.dognbird.tumbler.com. They can be wrapped in either Green or Yellow Chiffon Ribbon. With the Birch Vases you can create simple centerpieces using Hydrangeas, Forsythia Sprays, Seeded Eucalyptus, Berry Sprays and Baby’s Breath in multiple combinations. I love how popular the Kissing Balls have become. They are an easy way to add flowers to different locations at your reception. I think staying with the same greenery and flowers for everything from your bouquets to your cake will help you keep that beautiful, simple rustic charm you have in mind.
