Buy colored plastic spoons in your choice of color, place two Hershey Kisses back to back in the spoon, wrap tulle around the spoon and handle and tie with a ribbon.

Buy boxes of small bubbles (you can get them at Walmart in the wedding section) wrap in tulle and tie with a ribbon.

Gather up vases. Go to Michaels and purchase balloon sticks and balloons. Blow up balloons, tie them off, thread the tied end through the balloon holder to make balloon bouquets. Wrap the vases in colored tissue and tie with a ribbon.

The public library is a great source for all kinds of information on weddings and decorating. There are probably some websites that you can visit to learn what you may want to make.
The best to you.

you could take polaroids with the bride and groom of every guest and then put them in a little card that holds the polaroid. I think it is a nice touch and everybody will leave with a little something that is unique

For some wedding favors try mints, bubbles, A flower, and a picture of the couple.

I went to Micheal’s craft store and bought a book and looked on the internet. I made the centerpieces for every table. I took small glass bowls from the craft store and put a cute wire and pearl votive candle holder in each with the color votive that matched my colors. I glued a small string of “pearls” around the top of the bowls. I set it on a big round mirror in the center of the table with other votives on the mirror and put the small round confetti in matching colors on the mirror too. They were simple yet elegant. The candles on the mirror gave off this cool ambient light all over the room. I think each table cost less than $20 to make. the bowls were .69 cents, and the wire/pearl votives were $4 for a pack of 4. and the extra glass votives were .50 cents on sale. I got the mirrors cheap because I knew someone, but they sell them for not a bad price at the stores too. And for favors I got these cute wrappers for the rolls of life-saver-mints. They had our name and wedding date on them and they come in every color known to man. We just took of the store wrapper and taped on the new one. And we set each one on the plates on the table at the reception. This stuff doesn’t take that long to make of you enlist the help of your bridesmades and mother. Best of luck to you.

When is your wedding?
I made my own gel candles in wine glasses.(the wine glasses were freebie thanks to Canadian Tire bucks) I bought the wax 50% off at Micheal’s. I am surrounding them with mini wreaths that I made. (The candle glasses are a give away and they can take the wreaths too) I also made homemade chocolates. I made the topper for make cake from evergreen bough and poinsettias (all my flowers are silk poinsettias are poisonous) I also have wagon wheels wrapped 1/2 way up with poinsettias and berries these are lit up with white Christmas lights. I made my own bouquets. This was all quite easy and I did most of it myself in afternoons while my baby napped. Check with recently married relatives for leftovers like arch ways (I have 5 arches that I don’t know if I will use from my cousins plus miles of white Christmas lights.) I also bought my napkins last year as I am having a New Years Eve Wedding they all say Happy New Year instead of paying for ones with our names. Consider making your own thank you notes for an added personal touch it is very easy.
