The last in the multi-part blog series of 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!

For after the ceremony we made confetti bags.

Oriental trading bags, $5 for 50

Confetti, $15 for one lb of white brick confetti

 

We did a balloon drop when they returned from their beach pictures. Sadly we didn’t have the great picture I was hoping for but I thought I would share. It would work much better in a taller room.

Just Married balloons from Oriental Trading, $4.50

Blue Balloons from dollar store, $3

Balloon drop bag Party City, $8

The bride wanted the flower girl to match her. And the dresses we were finding were $80 and $100. I dropped in my neighborhood consignment shop a few times looking for a flower girl dress and found this one with the original tags still on. It originally had a pink sash and some little pink flowers but I spent some time with the seam ripper and some new ribbon and presto!chango!

Dress from consignment shop, $18

Shoes from Target clearance, $6

RIDICULOUS socks were a gift… and I probably should have skipped them.

Ribbon for sash with coupon, $2

Basket from Goodwill, $1

Headband from The Children’s Place, $5

Thifty Wedding Volume #3, the little details

Filed under: Thrifty Wedding — perrymoffitt @ 1:56 pm

I am going to continue 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!

I did a little surprise for the chair covers for the Mr. and Mrs.

I saw a similar thing on Pinterest and knew I wanted to use this scrabble letter fabric immediately. The save-the-date card for the wedding was scrabble themed so I knew they would love it. I made these as pillowcases and after we cleared the dishes I unpinned them from the chairs and snuck them in the bedroom.

I also made some printed magnets on my home computer for the car that took all the girls to get their hair and nails done in the morning. A little photoshop time and a $8 sheet magnet pack from Staples!

We rented the chaffing dishes from the party rental company and had the cater deliver the food. The only detail I had to do for the food was the labels! $1 each at Michaels!

I wish I could take credit for this one, but the bride and groom made their own cake topper! They got a little clay and crafted away! Didn’t it turn out fantastic?

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

Silver pen, $3.50

Teal ribbon, $2 for 3 rolls

Bulletin Board homemade from an  Ikea picture frame, $12

Thrifty Wedding Vol #1, Guest Book and Cocktail Hour Game

Filed under: Green Quilts,Purple Quilts,Thrifty Wedding — perrymoffitt @ 11:03 am

I shared the guest book tree earlier- here it is in action at the wedding!

I also made some wedding mad-libs for the guests to fill out. We put them in a binder during dinner and the collection was handed around and really enjoyed.

All we did for this was buy card stock for $8 and print them on our home computer.

Aside from both of those we put these on the 4 tables. We asked  people to write messages for the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th anniversaries… so easy to prepare!
