I've been searching for ways to make this wedding more cost effective and how I can do a lot of things myself since we are on a tight budget. Here are a few of my favorite ideas via Pinterest!
We are for sure using jars for the table decor since everyone in Andrew's family has them coming out of their ears. We will have a few with flowers in them and then others with candles. I think wrapping the jars in lace will be a nice touch!
This is my general idea for the table decor, something simple so that people can still see one another from across the table. After talking with Andrew's mom on the phone the other night, we've decided to grow the flowers that we're going to use for the reception and bouquets! She is an amazing green thumb and it will save us tons of money!
Then I found this picture of these amazing burlap roses and wondered if this would be a good idea for some of the tables as well. Maybe I won't have time to craft a bunch of these, I have no idea how hard that would be to do either!
Since we're doing cupcakes and a cookie table for the wedding I think giving people a box to take cookies or dessert home is a nice idea for a favor. I'm going to start looking for boxes I can buy in bulk online.
