When I had two daughters get married in the same year, I found myself pretty wrapped up in DIY wedding projects. Although it may seem like a lot of work, most of the projects were pretty easy. It was also a big plus to save money on so much rustic chic wedding decor!
Rustic Chic Wedding Decor Ideas
DIY Brooch Bouquets
My most time consuming project were the brooch bouquets. I made a large one for the bride and smaller versions for each of the bridesmaids.
To display the bridesmaid bouquets before the wedding, I lined them up in this revamped tool box! I followed the tutorial by Fancy Pants Weddings to make these.
Mr. & Mrs. Seat Signs
These signs are made to hang on the backs of the bride and groom’s chairs at the reception. They simply tie on with the ribbon that is woven through the wood at the top. This was a super simple project. All I had to do was purchase unfinished thin wood plaques and then paint them. I used a stencil for the letters. The final step was to drill holes in the top to weave the ribbon through.
Vintage Suitcase Gift Card Box
I love transforming vintage suitcases into fun card boxes for weddings! Both daughters wanted one, so I made two. I did have to tear out the original lining in both suitcases. I then added either new fabric, paint or decorative paper to the inside. The nice thing about these “card boxes” is that after the wedding they can be used for decorative home decor.
Vintage Clocks For Table Numbers
If you are looking for a unique table number idea, you may want to try what we did. We began collecting vintage alarm clocks and set each one for a different time to use as the table numbers.
Don’t be surprised if your guests want to take one home as a keepsake. These would be great for a centerpiece giveaway game!
Easy Accent Bouquets
I have also put together some little bouquets to be used for a rustic chic accent decor. They work well as fillers inside vintage suitcases or anywhere that you need a little enhancement.
Vintage Milk Glass Centerpieces
And finally, vintage milk glass is so perfect to use in weddings. These vases can be used in a variety of different spots in your reception setting.
