Mason jars are cheap (especially when bought in bulk) and they can be incorporated in so many ways in the décor of your reception. They can be used as vases for table centrepieces, as decorations or enclosures for light fixtures, or even as containers for your party favours.
If you want to remember all the details of your big day, apart from getting out your custom wedding dress once a year for a whirl, why not create a guestbook for guests to leave you a message? A traditional guestbook might be a little passé, especially if you are aiming for a unique and quirky theme, so an alternative would be to have big bottle in place of a guestbook, and your guests can sign their name on corks, small pieces of paper, or mini scrolls. Afterwards, the bottle makes a great decoration for you to take home and a wonderful remembrance of the most important day of your life spent with loved ones.

Outdoor wedding ideas are easier to come by since nature will lend a huge helping hand. Any wedding is a life-changing event, but an outdoor wedding is an event that will keep your guests talking for years to come, if it is properly planned.
First and foremost you have to consider what the weather will be like at the time of your wedding. If your wedding is planned for the middle of the summertime, then you know it will be hot. You should consider ways to keep yours guest cool. Have plenty of ice cold water bottles on hand. You could have fans passed out to the guests with the wedding couple’s names and date printed on them. They would be a wedding memento and a great way to stay cool.
If you have decided on a winter time outdoor wedding then you have the complete opposite problem. How will you keep the guest from freezing? You should remind your guest to bring a jacket or you could have a basket of gloves for the guest to grab a pair before the ceremony. Have the couple’s names and the wedding date embroider on the gloves.
I can not stress this fact enough, always and I do mean always, have a back up plan when having an outdoor wedding. No one can control the weather and that includes a bride. The best idea is to have a back up indoor location in case of rain. Usually people choose to have an indoor reception if the wedding is outdoors, and this serves as the back up location in case of bad weather.
Now for some decorating tips for outside weddings, I personally think less is more. If you have a beautiful location picked out for the wedding ceremony there really is not much you should not. If you add too much then you will subtract from the natural beauty. A few strategically placed flower arrangements and chairs for your guest.
Discuss and brainstorm outdoor wedding ideas with your partner thoroughly. With a little bit of preparation and planning you can have a successful and memorable wedding for yourself or for the person that trusted you with the preparation.
A rustic theme is becoming one of the fastest-growing wedding trends. It’s easy to see why. They’re simple and can be fairly inexpensive compared to that of a traditional formal setting.
How to Achieve the Rustic Theme
You can choose from a wide range of items to achieve this setting. Materials such as bark, flowers, foliage and evergreens, tree logs, burlap and tin cans may be used. These items, combined with mason jars filled with flowers, pine cones, and goods wrapped in twine can complete the nature look.
The rustic theme can be used throughout the event décor from the invitations right through to the thank-you cards. Wedding or party stationery such as invitations, menus and place holders can embrace the rustic feeling by adding some kind of wooden or nature element whether it be literal or simply an image of these things. You could use wooden tables for the reception, covered in a burlap table cloth. Perhaps you want to have mason jars filled with native flowers and greenery that is wrapped with natural twine as the table-center pieces or even several votive candles placed in a hollowed out tree log.
The rest of the event décor can play on this theme by sporadically placing props around the party, a log here and there, wooden signs, wooden troughs, and other earthy colored materials. Some weddings even have animals on site to really showcase the theme.
Your chosen menu may incorporate home-made cuisines for all or part of the meal course. For example, home-made pumpkin soup, local produced wines and cheeses and apple and rhubarb pie may be on the menu.
Even the cake can be used to take on the rustic theme, where the chosen design represents wood or be in natural colors.
Your rustic wedding can be as much of a family reunion or barbecue as it is the day you say “I do”. What a fun way to celebrate and begin your life together! Everyone is sure to have a ball. Your friends and family will be talking about what a great time they had at your rustic wedding for years to come.
