Metal or wood archway
Floral arrangements: this is a great way to save money! You could make your bounteierres, flower crowns, bouquets and other arrangements using fake (or real) flowers!
Wine bottle or mason jar centerpieces: another great way to save money. Use items that you already have. To keep it simple, just remove the label. To make it even fancier, add lace, burlap, or even glitter to the outside of the bottles.
Wedding signs: with paint or vinyl print outs (using a Cricut cutter or by purchasing on Etsy or Wedding Apparel NZ) create signs showing guests where to go, the days events, and more. Here are some fun ideas of signs you could make: read here.
Table identifiers: there are SO many options on how you can DIY your own table indentifiers. Some good options include mini chalkboards, picture frames, mirrors, books, bottles, mini wood rounds, and so much more!
Cork decor: have a bunch of extra wine corks laying around? Use them to make numbers, hearts, and sayings just by glueing them together. You can also use them for name cards!
