DIY Projects and Ideas for Creating a Rustic-Style Wedding: White dinnerware, napkins made from dishtowels and heirloom silver tied with twine make an elegant, yet casual look.

I love the idea of using small succulents to hold place cards at each setting. Succulents are tough enough to withstand almost any (dry) weather and are inexpensive to use, as one large plant can be broken into many smaller plantings. Potted in similar small containers, their uniformity is charming and adds a personal feel to events of any size. They also double as a party favor.
