Anthropologie Inspired Wedding Design

Courtney with Joyful Weddings sent me this Anthropologie inspired design she worked on with LaVonne of Adorations Botanical Artistry. From Courtney, “We went for an Anthropologie inspired vintage feel, with the charm of an outdoor picnic and bicycle details.” It’s simple and fun. Perfect for a backyard wedding, bridal shower, or rehearsal dinner.

  1. This would be my dream wedding! Now all I need to do it get engaged! :) So relaxed with amazing style. I love the napkin rings on the place settings… were those a DIY? Please do tell…

  2. Thank you so much for featuring our photoshoot Jen! We had such a great time designing it and are honored to have it on your amazing blog!

    UntamedPetals- yes, the napkins rings were DIY. I am going to post the details on my blog today (

  3. Absoultely beautifully amazing! Love all the wonderful details. Backyard weddings are the best. Low key but still lovely and intimate. :) I want to get married again! Maybe me and my hubby can do this for a vow renewal one day.


  4. nolan2109- Hi! I'm not sure where you live, but if you are in socal, there are lots of great weekend trips you can do. Palm Springs, Santa Barbara, there are lots of amazing hotels in LA, OC, and San Diego. If you have time, I would recommend a drive up the coast, stop in Cambria for a few days and Carmel. Congrats and have a great trip wherever you decide.

  5. I am SO in love with this set up!!! Anthropologie is my addiction and these ladies definitely pulled the look through!

  6. I am absolutely in love with the flowers and the wooden containers, in fact I am in love with the whole set up – amazing job.

  8. Lovely! This is a very perfect concept for a wedding! I like a bike to be used on my wedding instead of a car. Nice.

  9. I really love your blog :)

    As a side not, I beg you, please spell STATIONERY correctly!

  12. does any one know where that galvanized drinking tub is from ?

  13. Do you know where the adorable “Refreshment” sign and menu cards were from? I would love to get these for our wedding in June.
