Creative DIY Wedding Extras – Part 2

Program fans– Paint large craft "popsicle" sticks whatever color you’ d like. Print your program on a piece of card stock. Print your names and wedding date, the words "thank you", a picture of wedding bells or whatever you’d like on another sheet of card stock in the same color. Glue a craft stick on the back of your program centered, so half hangs off like a handle. Glue the other piece of card stock on top with the print facing up. Be sure to glue all around the edges. Glue a bow or flower where the paper meets the stick to hide the seam. Embellish them however you want for a personal an inexpensive program.

Door hangers for out of town guests– You can buy pre- made door hangers at craft stores and just decorate them or cut your own from card stock. Put the words "Do Not Disturb" and whatever other cute sayings or decorations you want. You can also hav one side say something like "Welcome to (your wedding town)".

Photo shoot table numbers– Take pictures of you and your future spouse holding signs that say "Table One", "Table Two" and so on… Then use those photos as table numbers. Ask your photographer to take a picture of all the guests at each table. After the wedding place each table number card with the picture of the people who sat at that table. Be sure to keep an extra set of the prints that you use for table numbers, in case the ones you use at the wedding are damaged or lost.

Almost free wedding reception centerpieces– Are you a gardener? Is your mom or your neighbor? Grab some inexpensive bud vases or get creative and use various containers that you and your family and friends have around the house and place flowers from a garden in them. They look great for a casual wedding and add a personal touch.

Browse bridal boards and look to other brides for inspiration. Or just look around you. Maybe you love the colors of a certain pillow and want to use it for your wedding colors.
