Thanksgiving may not be a popular season for getting married, but it presents a unique opportunity for a bride and groom who want to celebrate it in the intimate company of family and friends. So, when putting together this inspiration board keeping the event personal and sentimental was at the forefront of our approach! With elements using wood, chalk, and other similar textures, this wedding has all the charm of a rustic Thanksgiving celebration.
A Rustic Thanksgiving Wedding Celebration with Friends and Family!
Pie Table – Opting for an alternative to a traditional wedding cake during Thanksgiving? Then, a pie table is the answer! Set out a table with your favorite pies! It could be a his and hers pie table made up of flavors like raspberry chocolate, strawberry rhubarb, and host of other yummy flavors. Check out Haley Lovett Photography for a look at this beautiful farm wedding set in Pleasant Hill, Oregon!
Signature Drink – Dubbed as “The Harvest Sparkle,” this elegant cocktail uses cider spice-infused honey, a dash of a smoky whiskey, and prosecco. Visit Fed & Fit for this simple cocktail recipe.
Chalkboard Menus – It would not be a rustic Thanksgiving without something made of chalk! These menu cards are just the thing! They are printed on extra thick recycled cardstock that has a chalkboard background on both sides. See the etsy store of Paper and Lace of Austin for these lovely menu cards.
Whiskey Praline Pecans in Mason Jars – For favors that are sure to be eaten, check out this easy recipe that uses pecans seasoned with a mixture consisting of mainly whiskey, honey, vanilla, and sugar! See the Cookin’ Cowgirl for details!
