I love this picture.  It embodies the rustic, chick, and inexpensive vibe I want my tables to have.

Things I love—

  1. Mason Jars: Easy to get, inexpensive (thrift store to the rescue), easily customizable (as illustrated in this stylemepretty post), easy on the eyes, and a breeze to put together & set up on the Big Day
  2. Mismatched, Brightly Colored Flowers: Much cheaper if you don’t have a set color scheme or certain flowers you absolutely have to have – I plan on going to the market the day before or the morning of and picking out our flowers.
  3. Burlap: Two things – Cheap & Shabby Chic.  Super easy too!

Okay, I hope I’m not being a creeper by commenting so much in one day but can I say that I LOVE your flower idea. I would totally go to our local (tiny & charming) farmer’s market the day before our wedding if we were having the wedding in the place we live. Our farmer’s market has the most beautiful arrangements of zinnias in the summer time. There’s something sweet, dreamy, wholesome and effortless (in a good non-constructed, simple and lovely sort of way) about fresh cut flowers from a farmer’s market. Every time I visit the $5 splurge feels like such a treat.

Can we try this one… you know, where I actually spell farmers market correctly?!

After reading your post I looked up farmers markets near where we’re getting married (in my fiance’s home state – Massachusetts) and for some strange reason (strange because I’m from California where things grow all year round) their farmers markets don’t even start until the first week in July. No farmers market flowers for me. Sigh.
