Inspiration Board 37: Farmer's Market Wedding

(click images to enlarge)

Farmer's Markets may be some of my favorite places on Earth. Imagine a wedding in that tone: fragrant flowers in jam jars, ripe tomatoes for centerpieces, soft luminaries and a live Jazz band gently playing Ella's "Cheek to Cheek" in the background. Then add vintage inspired stationery, handmade candies and family photos. It would be an enchanting evening of romance, fun, and good eating.

It would be a very warm, intimate casual affair- and would almost require an outdoor reception. When planning outdoor receptions be sure to consider tenting needs, insect repellents and ample lighting- but all of those challenges can be overcome with creative solutions that only enhance the Farmer's Market feel. Tents can be assorted and mismatched. Insect Repellent can double as candles that add a campy smell that's so homey. Lighting can be lanterns, candles, Christmas lights, luminaries, and Japanese paper lanterns. The more mix-matched and colorful the better.

Finally, be sure to include your local farmers when planning with your caterer. Not only will you be eco-friendly (less transportation of the food) but it will also be farm-fresh-Delicious!!

I agree aside from the fact that it's eco-friendly kind of wedding, couples could also spend less with this kind of wedding concept. Thanks for sharing.
