Monday's Montage: Rustic Wedding Ideas, Get Crafty!

Looking for rustic wedding ideas? Think craft paper! There are so many possibilities with craft paper and many of them are DIY! 

The best part about craft paper is that you get to start with a neutral canvas that lends itself well to rustic or vintage inspired weddings. The color looks slightly aged and because it is neutral you can easily hand stamp or print your logo, guests’ names or designs on them.

This couple used craft paper for their programs as well as the personalized CDs they made for their guests.

Moko Branding, a design and media company based in Vancouver, creates rustic, unique invitations and other wedding stationary. Thin sheets of oak, wood and mahogany are precisely laser-etched with custom patterns, line graphics and text for your perfect day!

Craft paper bags are a classic too, whether you use them as favor bags, or like this couple did, as holders for rose petals their guests could throw after their ceremony.

If you’re cutting things out from Craft paper, or using it as placemats, table runners, etc. the best place to buy is from home improvement stores. It’s sold on a roll and comes in many different widths. If you are making invites or programs and want a stiffer craft paper or cardstock, paper supply and craft stores are a great option!
