A Rustic & Casual Garden Wedding – Katrina & Jason
Oh my days, if you love a rustic garden wedding then trust me when I say you’re going to love Katrina & Jason’s wedding! As if the picnic baskets wasn’t cute enough, they also printed off lots of gorgeous, vintage labels to wrap around cans and had parents create pretty bunting for the decor and handy bread boards for the tables! This is one DIY wedding you don’t want to miss…
“Our priority for our wedding was to ensure that our guests had a lot of fun! We chose our venue because we wanted a beautiful, outdoor space that could accommodate both a ceremony and reception for 200 people; it was also a free venue for us, because it was owned by friends of ours, so that contributed to our decision! I wanted rustic and casual but still elegant decor, and I am a lover of colour, so I didn’t want to stick to just a couple of colours. In order to save costs we made most of our decor, for instance printing off vintage labels I found online and pasting them around large tomato cans for our centrepieces. My mother in law sewed all the bunting that made the venue look so festive, and my dad made 30+ bread boards for the bread on each table.
We chose to have a fairly non-traditional wedding because we wanted everything at our wedding to be meaningful to the two of us, and we wanted our guests to have a really good time! We all ate dinner together first, and spent time playing lawn games and just hanging out. Then came the ceremony and then we went straight into dancing and partying after the serious stuff was over! We incorporated several new traditions that had meaning to us as a couple, forgoing some of the usual wedding traditions that perhaps weren’t as meaningful to us.
I would encourage people who are planning their wedding to really give thought to what they want. There’s nothing you have to do at a wedding (besides get married!) and the sky is the limit when it comes to adding new traditions to your day. Think about what will make the day meaningful to you, and what will be the most fun for your guests. Make your wedding reflect the two of you as a couple, and everyone will have a great time!”
Told you it was beautiful didn’t I?
