Wedding Wednesday

For the past year or so I've been in love with the idea of a picnic wedding. Cutesy and different, but with enough rustic charm to satisfy the Southern theme. It's not really a new idea by any means as wedding blogs such as Once Wed, Ruffled, and Style Me Pretty feature picnic weddings on occasion, but there's something about them that is undeniably awesome. Mike and I have narrowed down "the date" to about 2 weekends so we're getting close! We've laid in bed and discussed decor and planning. I want hay bales topped with vintage sheets and he wants chairs or handmade wooden benches. I love the idea of vintage blankets for the picnic but what about the weather? And I doubt our family wants to roll around on the ground! And of course a handful of people may have back problems or something that doesn't allow them to comfortably sit on the ground. Either way we're going to try and find a happy medium... the best of both worlds. A pie-filled picnic wedding! How perfect for us! Here's some inspiration below!

Have you ever been to a picnic wedding? What are your thoughts?

PS; We'll be sharing Mike's Blueberry + Peach pie recipe this week! It is the most delicious thing in the world!

  2. Picnic weddings are beyond adorable! I do think it would be difficult on older people or people with back problems. I personally want to do hay bales with quilts, but I think I'll have chairs mixed in as well, for people that need a back support.

    BUT I think if you want picnic blankets, you should go for it :) It's your day! Your guests will be happy for you, and they'll make it work for them :)

  3. Ooh that is SERIOUSLY cute. But I think most of my family would be ticked at me if I decided they all got to sit on the ground. They're lazy/no fun. Boo.

  7. i remember you posting something about a picnic wedding a while ago, and I've been in love with the idea ever since..!

    I've been pondering about it myself, b/c i can't imagine my parents and grandparents sitting on blankets... maybe a combination of chairs and blankets. I'm sure it's doable.

    I'm so envious of all the farms and land you (Americans) have... i cone from such a small place i don't even think there's a place to throw a picnic wedding, not an affordable one at least :\

    I'm really looking forward to hear about YOUR wedding :)

  9. That is the cutest Wedding idea I've seen in a while. Especially if you are on a tight tight budget like me and my fiance are!

  10. We thought of a picnic too, but what always stopped me was the older people having to get up/down on the ground, plus ants and other ground bugs which were plentiful at the time. Maybe you could incorporate some wooden picnic tables? You could paint them to match your colors and I think you could buy them relatively cheaply, at least you can around here.

  11. I think this idea for a wedding is super adorable! But I think it won't work very well, especially for older people and people with back problems and such.

    I think it would work out with tables and chaires tho! Or mix it with blankets and tables so people can choose.

  13. The picnic idea is just too cute to not do!

    How about you have a few chairs for those who need them (bad backs, knees, etc.)? I am sure plenty of your guests would love the idea of sitting on blankets ala picnicing.

    How about you have some chairs for guests that have reasons they can not sit on the ground (bad knees, backs, etc.)? I am sure plenty of your guests would love sitting on their own picnic blanket.

  15. I love the idea of taking a picnic basket to your table (or blanket) full of bread, plates & cutlery.
    it's so casual and cozy. I'm sure you could work out a way to get a little bit of seating for those who need it.

  16. i just went to a picnic wedding this weekend! they had blankets for most guests, but they also had some wooden picnic tables throughout. the picnic tables were nice too because they made an "edge" so the guests didn't get too far spread out. the picnic tables had fabric tablecloths on them and there were a few pretty chair cushions too for the benches.

  17. A picnic wedding is such an adorable idea. These photos are all so gorgeous. I never have any intention of getting married myself but things like this make me want to plan other people's special day!! Or rather, make and decorate things for them. I may be destined to grow up and be Martha Stewart!

  23. The picnic blankets are such a nice idea. However, fair warning to the guests would be a must.
