Vintage Weddings – The Rustic Barn Wedding

This time of year, I always have weddings on my mind.  Between Valentine’s Day and my own wedding anniversary approaching, it’s just in the air.  Ah, Internet.  Thanks to you, I have already planned my next six weddings (so far).  There are so many very, very cool ideas, and the vintage theme is EXPLODING into everything right now.  Here are some details for what I am calling the Rustic Barn Vintage Wedding Theme.  Enjoy!

Burlap.  ‘Nuff said.
Wildflowers in tin cans, vintage outdoor furniture…

Love the rustic old crates.  Love this entire setting…

Who says you can’t have chandeliers in a barn?

Or do chandeliers, paper lanterns, and white string lights to set the mood…
These gorgeous flowers feature burlap, twine, and buttons, providing even more rustic charm…

Mixed vintage China in subdued hues…
Here’s why vintage anything is cool, in a nutshell…

I see this as a fairly casual theme revolving around rustic vintage details, burlap, old wood serving and display pieces, mixed vintage china, and wildflowers, with soft hues and lighting (that being said, I’d love to cover the small side table in the second photo with a burlap tablecloth).  I like a soft sage green or lavender as a color.  Better yet, a slate blue.  What design details would you make part of a “rustic barn” wedding theme?  Sigh…this is way too fun.

In any case, start collecting pieces now.  (Why not?)  Even if you’re not getting married, most of these vintage details translate nicely into the home.  For example…
