18 Ways to Bring the Farm to Your Wedding Table

The farm offers endless DIY wedding ideas: From the colors of produce to the beautiful surrounding nature, it’s hard *not* to imagine bringing natural elements into your big day. An easy way to incorporate the farm-to-table theme is by bringing fruits and veggies straight from the farm straight to your wedding table — and we’re not just talking about the food! We’re showing you how to bring a down-home, organic feel to your big day by using long, reclaimed wood tables and unexpected pops of color with the freshest of produce. Your guests will be helping themselves to your decor all night long ;)
