Don’t you love how they dressed up the white tables with gingham runners? This is such a great idea especially for couples who are working with white table clothes provided by their caterer. Gingham fabric is so cheap and its amazing what a runner of fun fabric can do for a table. Plus, how charming are the orchard boxes filled with fruit on the tables below? What a wonderful alternative to floral centerpieces…

Non-floral centerpeices are awesome and usually more eco-friendly and affordable! I’m trying to come up with some good flower alternatives for the tables at our wedding in Sept. Thanks for the ideas!!

Well it was my wedding, for what it’s worth! And it was a great day… we were definitely targetting simplicity and tried to break down some of the ‘traditional’ approaches with a more earthy touch. The base theme we had in mind was ‘agricultural fair’ and took it from there.

Featured Simple Wedding Inspiration from Nature

We always think the most beautiful inspiration for weddings comes from nature. After all, Mother Nature has done a wonderful job, hasn't she? In today's featured editorial, the creative team elected to work with a very simple, pared-down palette of green and brown, both usually found as the base colors in nature. Highlighting the beauty of these natural tones caused them to push the bounds of their creativity, resulting in a beautiful combination of simple, natural designs with a modern aesthetic.
