Vintage hankies I found on ebay for tears of joy, $10 for 40 of them.

Table number holders/sign holders also found on ebay.  I got 14 of them from a bride who spray painted them silver.  Now I need to decide what color I want them and paint them.

Paloma Nest ring bowl from Etsy that says "Stop searching forever happiness is right next to you." It's a message from a fortune cookie we got at dinner years ago but I have carried it in my wallet ever since.

 My location does not allow petals outside so I have been toying with the idea of making paper flowers for the aisle on the sides, here is the first try.

Guest card pens, I found this idea on Pash Weddings. 


I found these hanging mirrors at Dollar Tree, I cut the "hanging" part off and will spray paint them.  Thought they would make really cheap/cute side table decor in the waiting areas.  I got clear glass tea light holders at Michael's clearance 4/$1.00 to go around them.

I started out trying to plan a $2000 wedding, but the photography alone was killing that so now I am trying to stay under $5000.

DIY letterpress I built to press our invitations. 

                                                All about paper photo 1

Invitation inspiration.  I know I want Burgues Script font, and I will letterpress my own. I wish I could remember where I found the laser cut invitation photo.  I am going to try to cut the pocket fold with my cricut in the same way just a different design.  Or maybe name cut out belly bands like these I made for a friend

Update: After thinking about it I have decided to scale down my invitations.  Most people are not going to keep them and with our small budget I can put the money elsewhere.  However I can never make things easy so I am aiming for a budget of 60 cents per invitation, before postage. 

I got these at Michael's with 60% off coupons and a small mypoints giftcard.  They came with the invitation, envelope, trifold, rsvp & envelope, direction insert, and ribbon.  Total cost before postage 34 cents each.
