I like the use of a background paper to hide details that should not be seen (i.e. the way the lace was glued on). (though very complementarianistic) The lace and twine add a great mix of the elegance of a woman, while the twine adds the ruggedness and durability of a man.
Not sure if you've started looking at invitations yet? Etsy has some beautiful, handmade rustic-themed ones with a variety of prices. There are quite a few with lace that are reminiscent of the wedding gowns you pinned!
