The other day, my sister pinned DIY instructions on how to build your own farm table. I immediate repinned it! Y’all know I love big, heavy farm tables. There’s so much character in the wood grain, the little nicks and often, the back story. The best farm tables are built from hand and passed down through the generations.

I love that for Camille + Mark (here and here), who hosted an intimate gathering of only 19 guests, many of our favorite components were built just for them (no rentals here! Those three farm tables were specially made) or come straight from their homes.

For the same reason, I love that some of the finds we rounded up below are ways to personalize an already beautiful wedding. I hope you enjoy!

A. A hot pink dress will look marvelous against a streamer-decked ceremony arch. We love this one from BCBG.

B. Remember the little flags from Camille + Mark’s dessert table? Easily make your own by combining a few inches of Cute Tape with skewers. Use the leftover tape for favors bags and the like.

C. From tying invitations to hanging chair back signs, twine is always versatile. We love the raw look it has while still dressing up pretty paper details. Combine it with some scalloped kraft tags for even more fun.

D. We love the idea of a ring bearer bowl that you can customize with a sweet saying. Find one at Paloma’s Nest.

E. Y’all saw how much I raved about Camille + Mark’s invitations! One of my favorite parts was the custom handkerchiefs included. We love the options provided by Benign Objects. Perfect for catching tears of joy.

F. Xoelle bow ties are a favorite of ours. The colors in this little number would adorable on a ring bearer.

G. The curtain of ribbons at Camille + Mark’s ceremony was epic and beautiful. You could use multiple spools of ribbon like these from Joann’s or you could do what C + M did and buy a few yards of fabric. Tear the fabric instead of cutting to get a raw edge.

H. I love the meaning behind Camille + Mark’s unity sand ceremony. Use mini apothecary bottles with a cork top to keep the sands separate until the ceremony. You can find them on sites like Save on Crafts and We got these here.

I. For an added vintage flair, a pop of color and to make those treats look even sweeter, use a bright cake stand.

J. A can of gold spray paint can go a long way! We love the gold pomegranates that sat the the table settings. Achieve a similar look with just a few spritzes.

K. Colorful glass vases can make a table topped with flowers look even more full and fabulous. We love the options at Luna Bazaar.

L. Who else saw the lawn games at Camille + Mark’s wedding and had to have them? This bowling set from Pottery Barn is a great alternative if you can’t find a vintage alternative.

What are some ways you would personalize your wedding?
