blue & brown farm wedding (reader request)

blue and brown rustic farm wedding

This blue and brown farm wedding inspiration board was created for Kate and Trevor who are getting married next April on Kate’s family farm in Iowa! Kate wrote and said: “We are having a spring wedding at the farm’s A-frame where both the ceremony and the reception will be held. Brown, blue, and ivory are our colors. I want to have the guys in brown slacks, boots, suspenders, and an ivory/cream shirt. My girls are going to be wearing windsor blue dresses and I will be in an ivory colored lace gown. We want to have a backyard kind of feeling at the wedding. BBQ style food, lots of home-brewed beers and wines… basically just a good ol’ time down on the farm!”

This wedding sounds like so much fun! For a BBQ wedding, one thing your guests will really appreciate are wet wipes, huge napkins, and possibly even disposable bibs (no, seriously). A fun idea for a farm wedding is to also include natural produce for your decor and details like the blueberry chair garland in this inspiration board. Be sure to coat the blueberries in wax or a clear glue/lacquer to prevent them from popping on your wedding dress. Rustic, easy-going details like mason jars and a homemade cake with a DIY cake topper will also fit the vibe you are going for perfectly. Brown paper bag menus are easy and cute, plus they can double as take away bags for any leftovers you might want to send home with your guests!
