plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

Extravagant centerpieces, delicate linens and romantic up-lighting can make quite the statement on a reception space, however, there are numerous other elements that can make just as big (if not bigger) of a statement while also staying budget friendly. I love the ability to give traditional wedding elements a modern twist with items that can even be found in or around your own home.

There are a variety of other ‘natural’ element to choose from in addition to the ones noted above; moss, feathers and seashells are just a few others to consider.  Do you have a wedding setting or theme that include these natural components?

  2. I love the ideas for using cotton and paper! Very original, and very chic.

  3. Great round up!!! I just made a bouquet with pine cones and it was so fun. I love the wheat too!
