    These are all beautiful ideas! I always wanted a simple, rustic wedding since I was a little girl. I live by the saying “less is more”. I wish I had these ideas when I got married a few years ago. My invitations were similar to the ones shown and all the guests said they were lovely and ecological too (we used recycled paper). For brides that want a venue to hold a rustic wedding in South florida, I cant recommend Lost Lake enough. The scenery there was the perfect backdrop to our nature inspired wedding!

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
