DIY rustic wedding invitations

Rustic wedding theme

Love a rustic, outdoorsy feel for your wedding ceremony and reception? From a barn wedding to a ceremony on the beach, the appeal of rustic decor and style for weddings has really gained popularity. Set the tone for your wedding by choosing DIY wedding invitations with a rustic look. A beach wedding at Zephyr Cove Resort in South Lake Tahoe would be fabulous with rustic touches — think burlap, straw, wood and simple flowers. Nestled in the trees, high above South Lake Tahoe, an outdoor ceremony at The Ridge Tahoe would also be the perfect setting for a rustic-themed ceremony.

Classic wedding style

Many engaged couples love the classic look for their wedding invitations, decor and attire. Picture simple yet elegant touches, and the traditional invitations our parents would have sent. While classic style may not seem too creative, by making DIY invitations or save-the-date cards you are bringing a bit of personality into your classic theme. Edgewood Tahoe in South Lake Tahoe would be the perfect place for a classic, elegant wedding ceremony and reception.
