I don’t know whose internet I’m currently using, mine or my neighbors’, but I’m going with it. Okay, where were we? Ah yes, thrifty wedding tips.
1. Rob the House: I grabbed from my home: four strands of Christmas lights, two candle chandeliers, one tea-light chandelier, two buffet lamps, 100 glass tealight holders (from my wedding a decade ago), one bedroom canopy mosquito netting thingy, one bathroom mirror, and one letter H. All of these items added so much to the event!
2. Think outside the box: Instead of using bud vases, I used salt and pepper shakers. They were two for a dollar and worked perfectly to hold a single hydrangea stem. Instead of using posterboard, I used my bathroom mirror to hold the seating chart cards. I glue-gunned ribbon right to the mirror!
Instead of numbering tables, we lettered them. The table letters on the seating chart cards corresponded to the letters on the toasting bottles.
