TOLSBY frame, 99¢
MÅLA easel, $14.99
A child’s easel makes the perfect wedding signage, with a little shelf for flowers or anything else, like in this bash from Style Me Pretty.
SKURAR candle holder, $2.50
Use these lacy votives as is, or embellish them with a bit of spray paint with instructions from The House that Lars Built.
BORRBY lantern, $14.99
A pretty little detail for a romantic wedding, made even more beautiful with a coat of metallic spray paint, like here in a Ruffled wedding.
ALVINE SPETTS lace curtains, $12.99
Use these as a photo booth backdrop, ceremony backdrop, or behind the head table, like here on Wedding Chicks (just hang them from a photo backdrop stand).
KORKEN bottle, $3.49
For water, yes, or make colorful table numbers with this DIY from Almost Makes Perfect.
UNG DRILL frame, $24.99
ELLY dish towels, $3.99/4 pack
These look a heck of a lot more chic than plasticky rented napkins for right around the same price (you can get two dinner napkins from each towel), just check out this Style Me Pretty wedding.
BLOMSTER candle holders, $15.99
Chic and elegant, straight out of the box (and you’ll save some dough on flower centerpieces). Here they are (along with short IKEA votives) in a wedding on Ruffled.
Here’s a beautiful centerpiece idea straight from IKEA: Use an assortment of glassware to hold a few beautiful blooms.
