    I thought we could post pictures or ideas for DIY or cheap wedding ideas for farmmommy. She is a busy lady on a dairy farm, with a new born son. She is having her wedding in the fall at a historic train station.

    I thought something like this would be pretty at the tables at night. Paper bags are cheap and you could do what ever design you wanted on it.image

    @farmmommy, I know I've shown you a couple pictures already from my Pinterest board, are you on Pinterest?  You should be!  That place is rife with ideas, let me know if you want an invitation!

    one tip- at my first wedding, we were married at night.  No dinner cost!  (We had a midnight buffet, but no sit down meal) Also, it was gorgeous, with the stars and the candlelight...

    I think this would be easy to make, if you have a hobby lobby or Micheal's close to you, just buy the flowers when they are 50% offimage

    For this I would get dixie cups, paint them the wedding colors and put white Christmas lights through them. Looks very romantic to me. image

    I made the guest book for my sisters wedding using photos of her and her fiance (and their daughter). You could probably order one pretty inexpensively off of Shutterfly, or you can make one yourself and get it printed. I loved it because it was extra personalized!

    cute idea... you could get pics from different stages of your and DF life and put them in frames for people to see when they enter. Like baby pictures, HS pics, and pics from working together on the farm

    OMG, I'm loving all of these! And I'm in no way shape or form into country decor! I think a fall rustic wedding could be amazingly beautiful!

    I sent you an invite, @farmmommy, I wasn't sure if anyone else had already.

    Is anyone else's searchbar on pinterest gone?  This makes me so sad!

    One of my favorite wedding favors were the personalized hershey nugget wrappers. I got them off ebay but they are easy to make.

    I've got some kick butt recepies fir things like truffles that you can make ahead of time and throw in a freezer.
    I also have a bunch of candleholders that never got into *my* wedding... I'll have to post pics when I get home... they're the type that you float tapers in.. and you can get some ribbons in your colours to mix and match...
    Hell I think I have 14 of them... I'll count em, and if you want 'em we can hash out shipping and stuffs.

    Oh wow, these are some awesome ideas! They're all so pretty! I LOVE the covered haybales, and I'm seriously in love with this: (and I bet you could make something similarly awesome with either pumpkins, squashes, or gourds!)
