Rustic DIY Wedding Ideas

I love weddings. The emotions, the beauty, the love, families coming together- what get's better than that? 

Matt and Julia's wedding was a gorgeous event at a rustic venue in Mill Valley, CA. Julia added a very personal touch with her DIY wedding ideas, which were adorable! Unfortunately I must have had too much champagne, because my pictures are fuzzy and do not do the wedding justice. Below I have shared a few ideas from Matt and Julia's wedding, as well as some ideas that I would love to showcase at my wedding ... in a few years or so...

Vintage mirrors were scattered throughout the venue. This lovely frame was displayed in the ladies restroom. These small touches created a warm, chic ambiance.

In the entrance of the dining hall, there was a collage of photos of Matt and Julia with family and friends in a collection of frames. Also displayed on the table was a vintage chalk board with "love" written on it. How cute is this?!

This distressed wood plank with hooks was used to let the guests know what table they were assigned to. What a useful and crafty idea!

Handmade "bride" and "groom" signs hung from Matt and Julia's chairs, which I was not able to capture, but they were very similar to the "Mr." and "Mrs." signs here. This is a creative way to display the seating arrangement. Also, I am just loving these wedding chalk boards! 

I love the painted distressed wood utilized here. What a cheap and fun way to throw the biggest party of your life!
