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.
Chalkboard sign for entrance purchased from ebay seller ozark-trading, photo by B & G Photography.
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.
Bracelet inspiration found on the Knot and will DIY my own, I am also making one for both of my daughters.
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.
Plan to add a ribbon like this found on Style Me Pretty, photo by B & G Photography. Ribbon can be purchased at www.masterstrokecanada.com I will DIY (YUDU) my own to say "You have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on." - Jane Austin
I Do card inspiration for our vows. I wish I knew who these photos belong to.
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.
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 http://tidbitsoftrisha.blogspot.com/2009/08/invites-are-out.html
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.
