Victoria With Roses featured this great DIY wedding project. Instructions can be found at iDiY.

I love this idea and, if you’ve got the time, it would be a fun favor for guests at any event.


Gorgeous and simple ideas that will keep the cost down and create an elegant atmosphere:

I’ve been wanting to write a post on this topic for awhile, but haven’t quite been able to get my thoughts together. Then I came upon this post in the Real Groom series of Nancy Liu Chin on her blog Brown Bag.

In the post Real Groom: Prioritizing The Budget Part 1, groom Danny describes all the ways to cut the budget: guest count and food, to begin with.

Check out Nancy’s blog – every one of her posts is worth reading, like this one on making  your own Heavenly Place Cards!

Another great do-it-yourself wedding project!!! Marry You Me has recently written a post detailing how to make lace garland decorations.

These would be great for a backyard wedding, church basement reception, or vintage wedding!

This do-it-yourself project makes a fabulously inexpensive and beautiful rose bouquet. Using only coffee filters, paint, and tape, The Wedding Cabaret has typed out easy to follow instructions to make a paper rose bouquet.

This would be great for center pieces for a reception or decorating the end of pews/chair for a ceremony, not to mention a great bouquet or boutonniere!

Love it!
