You can easily make “reserved” signs from quality craft paper for little to nothing, but give them that pretty wedding look with Ann’s pew bows ($5 per pair) or tissue garland ($2 per 25 feet). Tissue garland is available in several colors.
Fill your flower girl’s basket with fake flower petals. They look beautiful, are easy to clean up and the flower girl can be as generous as she wants, while walking her pretty self down the aisle, because you’ve only spent $3 for a whole bag!
Instead of tossing rice after the wedding ceremony, surround them with bubbles. Bubbles are a fun alternative to rice, which churches commonly prohibit. Plus, bubbles make for great photo opportunities!
Ann’s has a great variety of inexpensive unity candles. You can purchase a unity candle for $6, tapers for $3 and dress them up with ribbon to match your wedding colors. Find an inexpensive unity candle stand at Ann’s or use something you already had in mind and you’ve got a beautifully coordinated ensemble for your ceremony.
