Thrifty Wedding Vol #2; Programs, Place Cards, and Centerpieces

Filed under: Thrifty Wedding — perrymoffitt @ 1:42 pm

I am continuing the multi-part blog series on the Labor day wedding I helped coordinate and design. My Sister- In -Law married the man of her dreams and I was put in charge of making the event look fabulous, on a budget of course!

Gorgeous Photos by Chris Van Atta    *ugly ones by me 🙂

We rented the tables, chairs, dishes and this garden arbor from a local party rental company. Simple, affordable and they delivered!

I printed the programs on my home computer onto cardstock. I glued some  paint stir sticks that I had painted white and the result was some lovely fan programs. *which I am trying to keep blurry to preserve some anonymity…*

The centerpiece was a simple floating candle in a glass vase. The favor was a custom printed stemless wine glass. I could have anticipated that it would look so heavy on glassware, but I really was surprised at how MUCH glass was on each table.

I was finally able to put my long collected stash of corks to good use! These were the place card holders, 3 corks and some ribbon.

This was the table seating chart, just to continue the wine cork theme.

Materials used;

Corks, FREE!

Craft punch from Joanns with coupon, $10.50

Scrapbook paper, $1 for 5
