jenny + luke wedding inspiration

Jeff's little sister, Jenny is getting married in August! She and her cute bf, Luke, just got engaged a few weeks ago and they're now on the wedding planning fast track! Of course, we are thrilled for them and I am extra excited about all of her gorgeous ideas for the big day...They're planning sweet+simple yellow wedding in rural Wisconsin, packed with thoughtful DIY details and country charm. I've been bookmarking a few pieces of inspiration for her:
I love the simplicity of these invites. The bright yellow envelopes and pretty patterned liners give them just enough punch, but would be fairly simple to design and construct yourself.
A pretty letterpress graphic like this could be imitated with the right rubber stamps and inks.
Talk about ambitious, Jenny and her future mom-in-law are planning to grow most of the flowers themselves this summer! This palette is completely inspiring me. I'm imagining huge+bright blooms of zinnias, dahlias, garden roses, and maybe even a few sunflowers.

So what if daffodils aren't in season in August? This DIY daffodil centerpiece via {frolic!} offers a clever tutorial.
Imagining how beautiful their reception will be...Outdoors, in a bright white tent. No lemony yellow summer wedding would be complete without a lemonade bar.
Luminaries would add the perfect touch of romance at dusk: these are simply made from paper bags, one inside another, with ribbons. Via Oh Happy Day

When Jenny was up here last (on her way to your baby shower in fact), we got to talk about her wedding and what she was thinking. You pretty much have all the images that I pictured when she mentioned what she wanted. What a good sil! I bet this will be one of the last posts before baby boy:)

Bowls of lemon, limes, and oranges are a great way to up the cuteness without spending too much.
