When we picture a Southern rustic wedding on a farm, plantation, or even in a backyard underneath the stars, we think: lace and lots of doilies! This intricate, hand-stitched fabric can be used anywhere quite frankly within your decor, especially as ribbon wrapped around your bouquets or centerpieces, table linens or runners, and do-it-yourself photo booth backdrops. Bonus: It counts towards your something old and borrowed too!
Despite the threat of thunderstorms and rain showers, Stephanie and Scott were married in early June at Magnolia Manor near Knoxville, Tenn. The bride wore a beaded bodice and lace a-line wedding gown and accessorized with a floral wreath whereas her bridesmaids wore mix ‘n matched pink dresses. The groom wore a do-it-yourself burlap boutonniere. A white dove release ended the outdoor ceremony, and the tented reception began with lots of homemade BBQ. Vintage china, candelabras, mason jars, books, and tree bark decorated banquet tables, and crepe paper streamers hung from the ceiling. Guest enjoyed the dessert display of sweet treats, including cracker jacks, caramel apples, cake pops, and chocolate covered strawberries.
